Replace the instrument cluster because the original one is bad. Put in the new one. Start the car and it will die after one second because the anti-theft light will blink. Leave the key in the "on" position for 15 minutes. The "Theft Sys" light will stay solid. Turn key off, then start the car and it will run with the new cluster in it.

96 Mercury cougar gas gauge won't work


Cathy, 1996 Mercury cougar gas gauge not working. Simplest thing to check first is your fuel gage fuse, make sure all fuses are good. The ground wire could be corroded/damaged, sending unit in tank faulty, fuel level gauge in cluster faulty. All things can be tested by a good Tech.,diagnosed and estimate for repair.

Oldsmobile alero gages not working and dashboard lights are on


There is a fuse for the gauges. Open the door and the fuse panel is on the side of the dash. One on each side, But I believe the gauge fuse is on the drivers side. Pull the fuse and look at it. If it is blown, replace it. If not put it back in, see if the gauges come on. Corrosion will sometimes kill the power at the fuse. Pulling it out takes care of it. If it still doesn't work, next I would pull the dash and do the same, pull the plug and put it back in. Corrosion. After that is checking wires.

Which fuse is for temperature gauge on dashboard


  • The temperature gauge is not on a fuse of its own, it would work with all the instruments, ie fuel gauge, warning lights etc. If the temp gauge does not work and the fuel gauge does,, look for the problem elsewhere such as the sender unit on the engine. A quick check is to remove the wire from the sensor unit on the engine and short it out to ground. If the gauge picks up, replace the sensor unit.
  • Otherwise, check the wire itself for breaks, or bad connections.

MY DASHBOARD LIGHTS AND GAUGES WONT COME ON


It sounds like either a blown fuse, or a relay. If replacing the fuse, be sure to check all surrounding wiring and look for burned wire, loose connections, dangling wires, you should repair this problem before popping in another fuse. Good Luck

Which fuse runs the lights on the dashboard? fuel gauge and speedometer don't light up!


This is the PARK LAMP fuse . So check this out on the under side of the dash and use a nose plier to pull the fuse out to be replaced by the spare in the box.
If the fuse seems ok, then check the harness, connectors to the dashboard cluster or the lamps within the dash.

I can`t find the fuse for the dashboard lights on my 2000 jetta.


First, make sure it's not that your dimmer switch has been turned all the way down.
Check fuse 22 and 23. If they're good then you may have a bad ground somewhere. Check the board and fuse box under the battery (yes, I know - but thats where vw located it) for corrosion.

If it is not down to your left right beside your pedals, I would take a look in the fuse box under the hood next to your battery. The fuse might be shared with other components, so have good light with you and check them all.
