Instrument panel gages not working

In the beginning, the instrument panel gages would not work when the car was started but would work after i started down the road, now all of a sudden they dont work at all, the speedometer, tachometer and the odometer doesn't work or the fuel gage. i checked the clear fuses i could see thru, they all seem to be good.

SOURCE: 2001 grand caravan sport speedometer and tachometer not working

My van did the same thing. Actually the gauge had spun all the way around to the back side of the little peg that the needle rest on. To fix it I took the face of the dach board apart with a screw driver and rotated the needle by hand back to zero and its worked fine ever since..

SOURCE: 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. Whenever

Reports say that this can be caused by cold solder connections in the centre instrument panel where the A/C controls are. Electrical system issue here manifests itself in instrument cluster. Fix is to remove 4 screws to access A/C stuff. Look for burnt or loose wiring / terminals on connectors in this area.. Re-solder or obtain used replacemnt terminal if needed, from junk yard. Mine is 1999 Grand Caravan. Intermittent failures then permanent with instrument cluster.

I have 2002 trailblazer and the instrument panel keeps saying xheck gauges.then everything starts working again


Check gages means that one of the gages is reading an abnormal reading, like hot engine oil pressure issues, charging system voltage, pay attention next time it happens to the readings on the gages for something out of the normal

Gas gage not working


Maybe a problem with instrument cluster?
Usually the circuit works off resistance to ground. The sending unit in gas tank provides resistance to ground. The signal wire for fuel gage is a purple wire, if goes to fuel pump wiring connector. With key on, use digital multimeter, check for voltage. If no voltage, either problem with wiring circuit or instrument cluster. W/0 looking at instrument cluster, I don't know if you can replace gage itself w/o replacing instrument cluster?

If voltage on the purple wire, ground it, while a helper watches the gage, if the gage starts reacting, then check the grounds for fuel pump wiring connector, if that checks ok, suspect the fuel pump sending unit has a problem.

Instrument panel on 2003 Honda CRV starts flashing when headlights are on


Have had a similar experience with my 2000 Ford Windstar. The extra load added by turning on the headlights affects the instrumentation power feed. The illumination flickers and the gages go crazy. Your 2003 CRV may have its original battery which is near death. It took me four batteries to stabilize things and I still get the flickers at night sometimes

Won't turn over. The instrument cluster won't work


ok iif the instrument cluster does not work.. before i give a solution can you tell me if it have atach and temp gage not a temp gage witha idiot light but a actual temp gage.. because if temp gage and fule gage hands are not in their proper place like if yo uhave a 1/4 tank of gas and it reads way past full and the temp gage is gone out of site way past say 240 degrees then it is your speedo head .. have this trouble the other day on a chevy 2002 cavalier.. replaced the head and wahla the car started. it seems the speedo head is tied in with the computer system on these cars.. and if the tach is not working you need not worry if you cannot find a head with a built in tach.. a normal speedo head with out the tach part will also work.. just when you change the head count the pins on the old one and compare it to the new one if they match then just plug it in and car should start..

All gages dont work


I had the same problem and noticed when I went on a bumpy road that the gauges started working again. It is a short in the wiring because if you hit on the instrument panel with your hand the gauges will work again.
