    This solution worked perfectly, as opposed to your expert who had me taking the dash apart.

  • Anonymous Apr 01, 2014

    My gas gauge, speedometer, temperature gauge, tachometer, mileage, and gear selecter (the whole instrument panel) would go off and I could hit the dash and it would come back on. At the same time it would go off, the ABS light would come on. It finally went out for good. After that happened other things became involved as well. The overhead gauge is half working. It shows the temp but doesn't show mpg, dte, ect. Also my automatic door locks do not engage anymore. I am assuming that these rely on information from the panel in order to work properly. Since this didn't go out suddenly, could it be a lose ground wire and what do I need to do to check and see if that's the problem? Thanks!

Try resetting the body computer,with key away from vehicle disconnect battery for 3 minutes then reconnect it and wait 30 seconds then switch lights on then switch ign on 5 secs later, sure worth a try.

2002 Chevy Tahoe, all gauges and Speedometer stopped working......please help

Check voltage and ground circuits for instrument cluster. If that checks out, I think there is a problem with instrument cluster, itself.
Any applicable trouble codes?
Some makes and models, you may be able to get cluster to do a self-test? To do that, you may need a scanner that can communicate with instrument cluster.

Manual says that if the airbag light is on, it can cause all of the gauges on the IP to quit working. It says to check Fuse #22.. Fuse is ok. Any suggestions?

cab fuse or engine bay fuse? JB or PDC box?
no not true.
so why not post what the car does good and bad.
car runs perfectly and shifts ? all that.
all other light in car work? radio, etc.
with parking lights on does cluster glow? (back ground illumination?)
the cluster warning lights are dead , all are dead?
are all gauges, dead too? if some are say what? are dead.?
fuel , and engine heat?

the fsm is free.with full docs and schematics, lets look together now.
WJ jeep 95
click wiring (at end)
chapter 8w-40-1
volt meter in hand.

see that page?
page 2 to 9 is cluster "instruments "
PDC fuse 17 (engine bay) is PDC
and cab JB fuse 10

so 22 is bogus. there is no fuse 22 (usa car)
there is fuse 22 terminal. on fuse 9 and fuse 21>?
forget terminals, we do fuses real names,

first off, the cluster is a computer, im not privy to its programming,
(is anyone?)
but it must communicate to the PCM or its will fail, on the canbus
so turn on ignition (car battery charged to 12.6vdc rested)
all warning lights come one.
if not the cluster is not happy, this is a selft tests. of lamps.
the fuse posted above are the only fuses for it. PDC 17 and JB10
we use a scan tool next to be sure the PDC is not barfing comm errors. first. (or DTCs stating power loss)

read the manual above
see the correct fuses for cluster
see that it is a computer with comm lines.
if those 2 pins on the cluster are12vdc key on then that is not the problem and the ground pin on cluster is at 0v, not 12v.

fuse 5 and 9 run (JB) run air bag computer box.

this is power to the cluster below, 8w-40--2
the whole cluster runs off those 4 power pins, if power is lost
the cluster brain goes dead. the left pin below is memory pin.
right top is main power. to cluster.

25449976-rfzsrgdtqaicmpcrwkc1npqq-2-0.jpg if this is good
a scan tool is necessary to move on.
just like all cars with CanBUS, ,
an innova 3140 works. good.

This Seems Indicative Of a Poor Connection AT The CLUSTER Or A Junction Connecter Close to the Cluster. This is Assuming you Have Ruled OUT ALL ABS COMPONENTS, LOOK at These VERY CLOSLY Because of the Small Volts These Wires Carry , the SMALLEST DEFECT WILL Cause this Type of Symptom that you have given. Please try all of the Above, I feel Confedint that athis is where your Problem Is.

My instrument lights and the high beam indicator doesn't work. I checked all the fuses and they are good.What else do I need to check?

It sounds like the Body Control Module (BCM) took a dump. They're about $50.00 at a junk yard, $500.00 for a rebuilt one from a dealer. It's located behind the fuse panel under the dashboard.

If you get a used one, make certain that the part numbers match.

Good luck! The BCM provides the following features:
• Automatic door locks
• Battery protection
• Chimes
• Compass/mini-trip support
• Courtesy lamps
• BCM diagnostic support
• Door lock inhibit
• Headlamp time delay
• Ignition key lamp
• Illuminated entry
• Instrument panel dimming
• Mechanical instrument cluster support
• Power door locks (with/without remote keyless entry)
• Sliding door memory lock
• Vehicle Theft Security system (VTSS)
• Windshield wipers / washers (front and rear)

Gages speedo tac all quit. fuses are good 98 jeep wrangler. did it before but came back on. changed gage cluster still will not work

Have you checked it with a scan tool to be sure it is actually getting the information? The instrument cluster do go out, meaning the ribbon on the back.I would check the connection, then turn to a way to determine if it is recieving a signal from ECM.

Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light

Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.
