The problem is with the PATS (anti-theft) system in the truck. A major component of it is contained in the instrument cluster's circuit board.

If you still have the old cluster, take the circuit board out and swap it into the new (junkyard) cluster that's there now. If that's not possible you will have to go to the dealer to fix it.

I've swapped those circuit boards before. Just take your time be careful not to damage any of the board. It's actually pretty easy to do. I swapped my regular F-150 gauges for a nice silver Harley set of gauges so I had to swap the circuit board to make the truck start. Then when I sold my truck I swapped it back again.

Oh yeah, the odometer reading is also stored in the instrument cluster circuit board as is some other really important stuff.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that. Yes, the dealer is your only option at this point.

Took apart the dash in a jeep grand cherokee 94 put it back together and now the speedometer wont work but everything else is fine


remove again the dash. in the position of the speedometer, you can see a cable that is quite thick, as thick as a normal coaxial cable that can be seen behind your TV. attach this first at the back of the speedometer before reinstalling the dash.

My speedometer clicks and bounces, how do I fix it?


if this is a datsun and not a nissan name plate then you need to check and see if the speedometer cable is sticking or binding.if it is you can remove the inner speedometer cable from under the dash you have to remove the speedometer cable from the back of the speedometer head and move were you can work on it under the dash,turn the inner cable by hand to see if you can feel it bind or turn roughly before removing it,pull the inner cable out from the outer cable wipe it down and as you re-install it lube the cable with a light grease all the way to within the last 2-3" and re-install to the speedometer head and drive to see if it fixes the problem.usually this fixes the problem however if it doesn`t then the speedometer head is the problem

I have a 1997 Dodge Voyager Ralleye and the speedometer needle fell off because the instrument panel shorts out once in a while and my wife smacked the top of the dash and it fell off...so I pulled apart...


with the needles off and the scanner set to calibrate the speedometer and all the rest of the needles need to be installed at 1/2 full range with the system on unless otherwise noticed by the scanner.

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.

My 95 tahoe speedometer wont work and the trans isn't shifting


95% of the time when multiple things like that happen it can be linked back to a blown fuse. Thats where i would start first because with bare wires touching or grounded out it is a good chance it blew a fuse.

Speedometer


the circuit board on the back of the cluster often become loose. you can fix this by either resoldering the connections of getting another cluster if not new then a junk yard one. when your cluster stops working can you push on it and make it work again or smack the dash. if so resolder the board or have a junk yard one. i myself went to a junkyard and got one i had to beat up my dash to make it start working again.
