Instrment cluster guages not working

I have a 1985 190e and I just had the speedometer cable reset, but after driving it 6 hours after that, the tacometer, fuel, water, and oil gage went out, but the economy and clock still worked. I was wondering if this was all hooked up to one cable that maybe became disconn while the guy at midas was messing under the dash, or it was maybe a fuse issue.

Why does speedometer/odometer work intermittently?


Pull your negative battery cable for 30 min see if it resets your sytem. Guages should jump up and drop back then work perfectly. Had to do this with my 2005 monte carlo

The speedometer stopped working, the oil pressure guage works intermittantly, the gas guage is on intermitantly also.


Take your truck to a GM dealer and have the Body Control Module checked. The bcm controls most electrical and display functions inside of your vehicle.

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it

I have a 1991 Ford Mustang GT speedo problem


check the cable for the speedometer at the interconect. the cable is loose somewhere along the length of the cable. one back of he meter, 2, interconnect. 3, transmission case.
make sure the inner cable is square not rounded. if os, you need a new cable.

Speedometer is jumping all-over


You better check the connector to the speedo and cluster, either you bent a pin or damaged the printed circuit, or the connector is not locked properly.

Check the speed sensor in the transmission.
Being a 95 it might still be cable driven. Disconnect the cable from the transmission and hook a drill to it. Spin it and see if it registers. If it does, the gear going into the tranny is broken, if it doesn't the cable is probably broken.
