Fuel Guage & Temp. guage intermittant

I have an '89 Pathfinder. Recently both the temp. guage and the fuel guage have been acting up, not working intermittantly. They are apparently connected at some point. I've checked the main fuse block, didn't see a problem. Is there another spot to check, does this symptom point to any one particular component I can replace ?

    The problem is obviously elec....as both guages come on and go off together

    No effect with how the car runs, I'm guessing its some short. I supose replacing the instrument cluster might fix it, but was hoping to find something alittle less work as I am forced to use it to get to work with the blizzard we've got going on up here in Anacortes, WA.

I have a 1992 honda prelude that is running but the fuel and temp. guages are not working but all other ones are.


this may be 2 seperate problems, fuel guage issue may be the fuel guage sending unit, the temp guage may be a stuck open thermostat. Have the engine temp checked after driving at least 5 miles, does the gas guage ever move around even a little, if so it is the fuel gauge sending unit in the tank.

Audi A3 fuel/temp gauges


No link, the fuel guage issue is the sending unit in the gas tank is defective, the temp guage may be correct, have you serviced the cooling system lately or ever? What year is the car?
