    Speedometer needle jumps and odometer doesnt work

    i have a 1990 dodge d150 and th gas gauge while the truck is shut off shows about a quarter tank but when you start the truck it goes down to Empty. the odometer and trip don't work either and the speedometer is about ten miles per hour off when the gauge isn't hopping all over the place. what problems could be occurring on these because I have plans to sell the truck and I don't sell junk. and this is the only thing wrong with it. everything else works great

I had similar problems with speedos in two 1990 Audi 100s, it was some time ago, but the contacts on the circuit boards on the back of the speedo deteriorate and do not give a good contact. I bought second hand speedos, only to find they had similar problems, eventually it was very easy to fix, I shaved matchsticks to chisel points and pushed them into the circuit boards to add pressure on the contacts and improve connection. After that repair drove the cars for a few years and the problem did not recur. It was a long time ago and I cannot remember exactly where the matchsticks were placed but look for soldered points near the edges of the boards. Regards, Michael

How do I fix my gauges? (Ie, gas gauge, temp gauge, speedometer, odometer)


Fuses? Blown fusible link? Most gauges work by getting 12 volts from the ignition switch when on, and getting a ground from the sender. Often the 12 volt supply wire goes to more than one so if dead, both will fail. If you have a wiring diagram, you might find which wire to cluster should be hot, and trace it backward to find the issue. Easier to check for ignition switch feed first.

1992 toyota 4x4 pickup odometer working but speedometer not working


They both work off of the same cable, so I would say that you have a problem in the speedometer head itself and will need replacing or sent in for repair.

Odometer jumping


Ho, that doesn't bode well for your tank monitoring. It was a fluke, but may keep doing it, if the odometer is a mechanical meter with numbers turning from the speedometer cable by plastic gearing that wears. Watch for it to jump at the next 100 mile turn over.
I understand your reluctance to change out the fuel level sender in the tank if that is why the gauge doesn't work. It is a lot of work. But have you checked to see if it's the dash gauge or the sender unit? A couple of electrical tests could determine that. If it is the dash gauge, that is comparatively easy to replace, and you could buy a used one-they seldom go bad. Otherwise, keep tracking your miles.

What do I do if I the gas gauge and speedometer doesnt work?


No help but my gauges stopped working at about the same time on my '98 Frontier. So far, the fuel, temp., speedometer, odometer and trip gauges don't work or some work at different times after starting the engine.

Everthing on my dash (speedometer,odometer,fuel


Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.

Hi I just bought an 51 plate Audi A4 1.9 tdi b6 model. The speedometer does not work and is constantly on zero and the fuel gauge fluctuates while driving. Also the odometer is stuck on 123122 miles. Any...


Have the speed sensor checked, that's mounted on the side of the tranny, that operates the speedometer. As far as the fuel gauge, probably the fuel sending unit is shot which is in the gas tank.

My 92 honda civic speedometer works only half the time


check the connection from speedometer to transaxle. Often this becomes loose, especially the transaxle side. Also 92 was a first year model and have heard many wacky problems.
