Question about 2002 Lexus IS 300

Open Question

Lights, RPM, MPG All not working on instrument panel after swap

I have an 2002 IS300 that I'm trying to put back together. I lost my original cluster and had to buy a replacement. I've tried 3 different clusters, 2 from 2001, 1 from 2005, all with the same exact problem. The tac for RPM isn't working, Not sure if the GAUGE for MPG is working since I really haven't taken the car around the block yet, but all other gauges seem to be functioning. Also, the Lights for the whole instrument panel are not working. The lights for the air bag, check engine, oil, signal, tail lights, etc. work, just the main lights to light the cluster are not working. Would it have anything to do with it not being the same year? Need help!!!

SOURCE: instrument panel cluster gauges and odometer has stopped working

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.

Same as 2 dr, or a stick.
There are bezel screws that hold the plastic trim (pointing up towards the windshield), you nee to remove these 2 screws. The bottom section is clipped in. Tilt the steering wheel down as far as it will go.
Once you have the bezel off, there are 4 screws holding the cluster to the dash. Remove them and gently pull the cluster forward. Reach around (expect to get scraped knuckles) and unclip the speedo cable, and two large multipin connectors. Don't force anything.
Getting the cluster out after this point is a test of your patience. It only seems to come out one particular way.

SOURCE: instrument cluster inoperative, transmission shifting problems

These vans have had issues with the PIN connections to the instrument clusters. With time the solder on the main PIN connection will begin to fail. The good news this may be repaired at home. First you'll need to remove the instruments. To do so remove the dash components from around the instruments then the (4) screws) that hold the instruments in place. Carefully detach the wire connection from the back of it; take to a well lit area. Look for a PIN with a failed solder joint (this will appear as a slight black or grey circle. If found apply heat and let solder begin to flow; the allow to cool and reassemble. If you look at my history you'll see I've helped others with this issue. The attached link may help: http://dodgeforum.com/forum/dodge-caravan/197192-99-grand-caravan-intermittent-dead-dashboard.html

As for the transmission I expect this a seperate issue, possibly the BCM but I'd like to review further.
Please let me know if this assisted you,
Tom

Can a 2004 S60 instrument cluster work in a 2002 S60?


You can't swap clusters from car to car. They are a software driven unit called the Drivers Information Module and are programmed to the car they originated in.

I have a 2002 Saturn sc2 coupe, none of the interior instrument cluster/dash lights work. I am havinf a heck of a time finding a fuse box diagram, which fuse controls those lights? The panel doesn't h


The fuse panel is on the side of the dash where the drivers door opens up. The cover is right there. The diagram is on the back of the fuse panel cover. It will say cluster or dash Lts. If fuse is good try turning dimmer dial on left side of dash, it may be turned down just below gas guage

Take the cables off the battery. Touch the two cables together (away from battery) and them together for 15 seconds. PUT POS CABLE BACK ON FIRST. Then neg cable. If this does work, cluster will need to be replaced.
