My mph, gas, and temp gauges are not working


That's why you don't let you husband work on your car ! Unless he does it for a living .. For MPH there is a VSS - vehicle speed sensor , for the gas there is a sending unit in the fuel tank, for the temp. gauge there is a temp. sensor located in coolant stream on the engine .You more then likely need to have you instrument cluster repaired . GM had a problem with step motors inside the instrument cluster . A step motor is what controls the individual gauge. The sensors are all inputs to the PCM - powertrain control module (engine computer ) .
Engine Coolant Temperature Gage
The IPC displays the engine coolant temperature as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine coolant temperature. The engine coolant temperature gage defaults to C or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Fuel Gage
The IPC displays the fuel level as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the fuel level percent. The fuel gage defaults to empty if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

When the fuel level is less than 14% (84ohms), the low fuel indicator illuminates.
Odometer
The IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. Momentarily press the trip select/reset switch in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip select/reset switch for greater than 1.5 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer. The IPC displays the vehicle mileage and trip mileage as determined by the IPC. The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed information from the PCM. The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected.
PRNDL Display
The IPC displays the selected gear position as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display shall flash all gear positions if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Speedometer
The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses per mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 mph (0 kph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit exists.
Tachometer
The IPC displays the engine speed as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine speed. The tachometer will default to 0 rpm if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine speed sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Jeep cherokee1999 dont start,....lighting check engine


Check for error codes. You can do a "basic code check" by turning the key "on, off, on, off, on" (not to the crank position, just to the on position), and watching for codes displayed on the odometer (if it's a digital odometer, codes will be displayed). Then look up those error codes (you can look them up on Google, etc.). Also, many stores like Autozone will do free scans for you. I'm assuming your battery is good.

Hi there,

This sounds like an electrical issue.

You will need to extract the diagnostic codes from your vehicle's computer.

This can be done in the following manner:

** Firstly, attempt the first part of the procedure with engine running **

- With gear lever in PARK, start engine and rev up to 2,500rpm, then gradually reduce revs down to idle speed (ie take foot off accelerator).
- Cycle gear lever through the gears (ie down to 1st, then back up to PARK)
- Turn Airconditioning to ON, then OFF
- Turn engine OFF

- Within 5 seconds, turn the Ignition Key in this sequence: ON - OFF, ON - OFF, ON (leave key in ON position)
- If done correctly, a series of 4-digit codes will appear in your ODOMETER display

** Remember, you must complete the ignition key sequence, within 5 seconds.

Please advise which codes appear and I will assist you futher.


Cheers,

Scott

2006 toyota corolla maint. required light stays on. How do I make it go out after maint.


turn the key on. press the odometer/trip button until the odometer is displayed. turn the key off. press and hold the odometer button and turn the key to the run position (do not start). The odometer should change from a number to all dashes ( - - - - - - ). One by one the dashes will disappear then the display will change to all zeros and then will change to the regular odometer reading. Once the regular odometer is displayed let go of the button and turn the key off. The maintenance light will now be reset.

1999 buick century odometer light does not work


this is a common problem and the dash cluster must be removed and sent out for repair, cost is about $175 to replace the LED (Light emitting diode) display that has burned out, this is a faxtory defect as far as this expert is concerned, it is not a fuse problem.

How do I do a Diagnostic System Check? Is this


If you can visit one autozone shop, they can read or scanning your OBD codes.

Codes are displayed on digital odometers on newer models. On many 2001 and newer models, holding in the trip odometer reset button while turning the key to RUN will start a self test, with a readout on the odometer. It will also activate all instrument panels, one at a time. We do not know if this will show computer codes, or whether it only tests the instrument panels. At the end, it may show a few odd codes that are firmware versions and not error codes.

On most cars, the codes will read out if the engine light is on - all you have to do is put the key into the RUN position.

Normally, to get codes, you put the key on OFF and then rapidly do OFF-ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON (on some cars you have to do four or five, not three, OFF-ON cycles). On our test 2002 car, the key did not go back to unlock, so it was ACC-ON-ACC-ON-ACC-ON.

  • You may have to have the parking brake firmly set for the codes to show! (Thanks, Steven Midway)
  • Jon Yoon: The 1998 Caravan does the same check engine light code trick, but it also does an instrument diagnostic check if you hold the trip and reset buttons and turn the key to the run position and wait 5 seconds. This helped me figure out that my input and output speed sensors were broken but the actual speedometer dial could move.
  • For the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee and up, you do the switching the key on and off 3 times, but not quickly. You turn it to on so the odometer turns on, turn it off, and then back on, wait for the light to turn on, etc. On the fourth time you'll get a code, or you'll get the word "done." (Monica MacDonald)
A loose gas cap may light up the Check Engine light! (Thanks, Lyn Clark)
  • When the computer indicates major failure, it can activate Limp In mode, which guesses about data to compensate for sensor failure, allowing you to get the car to a mechanic. One major symptom of this is the transmission sticking in second gear. This is a feature!
  • 2002 Ram, put transmission in neutral, parking brake on, then do the acc-run key sequence 3 times.
  • Dan Stewart wrote about the 1999+ Voyager/Caravan with digital gear selection display:
    • There are 2 functions that can be accomplished with the key-on sequence. Get Diagnostic Trouble Codes by placing the key into the ignition. Push and hold the both the "Trip" and the "Reset" buttons with the left hand and turn the key to the "ACC" position (first position between "LOCK" and "RUN"). Continue to hold both buttons in and count to 5. Release both buttons, display should read trip mileage instead of total mileage. Push the "TRIP" button and the odometer will display DTC'S in rotating sequence instead of displaying total mileage.
    • The second function is an instrumentation diagnostic. Place key into ignition, press and hold both "TRIP" and "RESET" while turning the key to the "RUN" position. Continue to hold both buttons in until odometer displays "CODE". Release buttons. The display will then display "999". Afterward it will display "CHECK 0" and test the analog gauges. It will then display "CHECK 1" and test the digital displays

RESET THE COMPUTER
Normally the computer will eventually reset itself; you can also use a scan tool. (See our transmission repair page for information on resetting the computer's transmission information.) Disconnecting the battery for a few minutes generally resets the computer, though it also means losing clock settings.
Sid Willoughby wrote: “To clear the check engine light on a 2002 Dodge Ram once the problem is resolved. Start the engine and drive forward then in reverse (you only have to move the truck a few feet in each direction) the turn the ignition off. Do this sequence three times. When you start the vehicle the fourth time the check engine light should go out.” (This procedure may well work on other vehicles.)

CODE LIST 2001 which covers some vehicles from the late 1990s as well as newer ones. It shows the longer codes starting with the letter P.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).

Can I get the codes by using my on/off ignition switch or do I have to use a reader


To query and OBD-I-era computer for these codes, put the key in the ignition and turn the key to run (not start), then off, then run, then off, then run (that's 3 runs and 2 offs). Leave the key in the run position.

The check engine light will turn on for a few seconds, then turn off, then (sometimes after 20-30 seconds) start flashing. The flashes are counting out 2-digit trouble codes. Fast flashes count up each digit, with a longer pause between digits. On TJ's with a digital odometer, the code numbers are printed on the odometer in addition to flashing the check engine light. 55 indicates the end of all codes. Once you've got your code list, consult the table below to see what they mean.

OBD-II information is more complex, so the codes for 1998 and newer Jeeps can't be displayed by flashing the check engine light. However, those vehicles which have digital odometers will display the codes on the odometer. I've verified this personally on a 1999 WJ. For those vehicles without digital odometers, or for anybody who wants an English description rather than just a numeric code, an OBD-II code scanner ($100-300) can be plugged in under the dash. OBD-II codes can be looked up online here.


These codes were taken from the '95 XJ/YJ factory service manual.

I hope help you woth this. Good luck (rated this).
