Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

1 Answer

All dash panel instruments fail

All instruments, including speedometer, tach, fuel gauge, battery, oil, etc... do not register anything. Problem with all gauges started at the same time.

Fuse looks good.

What am I missing? Is it behind the panel itself? If so, is there an easy way to pull the dash panel and fix the problem?

The battery light came on and then lost most of the instrument panel including the speedometer, tach, fuel gauge.


The battery light comes on when the charging voltage gets too low. Individual modules will start shutting down due to the low voltage. Suspect an alternator issue. Have the charging system tested to determine the source of the light coming on

Instrument Panel keeps blowing fuses


It isn't the ground; if you lost the ground, it wouldn't be blowing fuses-it wouldn't be doing anything.
There may be a short in the panel, or in the wiring to it. You will need to pull the instrument cluster out to investigate. If the wiring and connectors look good, probably need a new cluster.

i would 1st check the power distribution black box, located under the hood, on drivers side, there inside is several relays and fuses, look onto the inside of the cover ,once it is removed, most of thes would give you a basic description of the fuses and relays, i would check the one that controls instrument panel uses, hope that this was helpful to you.

Honda Pilot 2004 Car battery died because we left the lights on. Jumped battery. Works great but NOW the fuel gauge and hot/cold gauge is not registering. The fuel gauge needle just stays past Empty and...


Check fuse No. 9 (10A) in the driver's side kick panel fuse box. But if your other gauges are working (speedometer, tachometer, low oil light, etc.) then it is possible that when you jumped the battery you inadvertently reversed the cables and created a reverse voltage. This will impact some of the vehicle electronics. If you feel this might be the case, you should test the cooling system temperature sender to see if it failed. If it did, you should suspect that the fuel gauge drive circuit located in the instrument cluster is also failed.

88 eldorado instrument panel is dead, including speedometer and fuel gauge. None of the digital instrument panel gauges are lit up. How can I troubleshoot this problem? TJ


It sounds like the problem is your dash cluster itself. you should be able to find another dash cluster for an 88 DeVille in almost any junk yard.

Everything on dash panel not working.


Fuse for the instrument panel is possibly blown. Check your owners manual for the proper location of the fuse. If you do not have a manual they are available online in PDF version.
