Switch ig. on, ground the sender unit wire for about 3 seconds see if the temp. gauge moves, if so change sender unit, if not then it is a faulty gauge reader.also check instrument voltage stabilizer.

I have an N13 1.6 litre Nissan Pulsar Hatch. I've just had the battery replaced and now the temperature gauge isn't working. Was working before. Nothing else was done. Any help would be appreciated.

Your temp sending unit off of your engine is either disconnected or faulty look into we're the wire leads into the sending unit it's usually were your upper radiator hose meets up with the block or were your thermostat housing is thanx Chris

    Dashboard instrument cluster faulty - fuel gage, odometer, tacho and trip counter not working on my nisan n13. Fuel gage shows pessimistic eatimat of fuel in tank. Odometer stopped one year ago when the...

    N13's are terrible for this problem, the odometer stops because of a faulty little nylon cog that has to be replaced, the tacho and gauges in n13 dashed die as well but as far as I know that's because of faulty electronics, if it was just the odometer problem you couldv'e bought the cog off ebay (and with a little mechanical knowledge) you could've taken the dash apart and re installed it yourself but because the other electronics are dying I advise you take it to a dash repairer or you can try getting out a soldeing iron and try to replace all the faulty connections yourself.

    Pulsar N13 instrument cluster no TRIP or OD

    the common faults with most n13 pulsar dash clusters come from the rear circuitry where theey are all running to their respective gauges . heat and time finally get to the circuits and they let go causing a very small crack in the line causing no voltage to the gauge. easy to fix with a soldering iron and lots of patience .. good luck

    possibly the circuit board but i see it unlikely. you may have damaged a wire that works the temp guage. i have a nissan pulsar and mine works just fine.
