SOURCE: 1991 toyota pickup fuel and temp gauges dont work

You might have a bad ground. According to my Haynes manual's wiring diagram, both gauges share the same ground and typically that is "located on the left side of the instrument panel", wherever that is. Sorry I can't be more specific about the location. While it may not be true on your vehicle (the wiring diagram states "typical late model" in its description), my wiring diagram says that the ground wire is Brown (BR). You might try locating that wire and track it to its attachment point. You also might try tapping into it and using a continuity tester and ground out the wire to metal (there's plenty of grounding points under there). Make sure the ignition key is off!! There might be a bad ground wire closer to the meters than the attachment point. Hope this is helpful. Allow plenty of time if you're going to investigate this yourself. Do you have other gauges? Do they work? I think that all of the gauges are ganged through the same fuse (but not through the same ground wire). You might consider checking the fuse to ensure that it's OK. Your owners manual that came with the truck will tell you which fuse is it. If there are other things on the same fuse and they work, it's not the fuse. I hope that this is helpful.

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.

Check all fuses with a test light. If all good, you will need to diagnose each circuit. Look for the temperature sensor, disconnect connector, ground test light and touch wire. Check to see if the gauge move. If it does, you will need a new sensor. Basically the test is the same for fuel gauge. Disconnect connector at the fuel tank and touch contact and see if gauge move. If it does, the sending more than likely is at fault. Make sure you test each wire as there will be a few. Use proper jack stands anytime you work under a car! Let me know your progress.

SOURCE: tach fuel gauge n temp gauge not working

Did you check for a blown fuse in the fusebox? It sounds like a blown fuse or loose connection at the plug for the instrument cluster, or a short in the wiring. Hope this helped.

I have the same problem.. i installed a toggle switch for the fuse so at least I can reset it while driving.. its still a pain so Im thinking my next step will be to drill a hole through the plastic and put in a small metal post to stop the tach from going past 7

has anyone taken theirs into a shop?

2003 Satria, Tacho and Fuel gauge dont work . Fuel gauge comes up now & again low fuel light works. Tacho works now & again. But speedo and temp do work all the time.


It may be that the speedo and temp are mechanical, whereas the tach and fuel are electrical. Check fuse for inst. cluster for clean and tight fitment. Check electrical connection at back of inst. cluster.

1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager.........Dashboard instruments quit working and don't light up. Speedo, tach, fuel gauge, temp gauge, and mileage indicators and lights for same stopped working. ABS...


You have some wiring problems shorting out that is coming from the dash board so if you or anyone you know how to use a multimeter to check the wireing harnesses plus check any connectors that might be just very touching the connector of dashboard which means a bad connection to dashboard.

My 1991 mr2 toyota temp gauge dont work i install new temp swich and still dont work


Temp Gauge wire may be open circuit. Operation can be checked by Shorting connection to Temp Sender to engine. If the circuit is OK the Gauge should go up to Max.
