Center read out on Dash cluster not working

Well it works for a while but then it slowly dissapears. I would seem as if there is a bad solder or connection. is there a fix for this or do I need to just buy a new cluster.

This is a regular problem with the Audi displays. Audi will do nothing about it, but feel free to call Audi of America to complain, maybe if enough people complain, they will recall it.

Why won't my gauges in my dash all of a sudden

This is a common problem amongst Chrysler vehicles in your year range. It's an easy fix, once you take the instrument cluster outside the car and unplug the wiring harness, dead center in the back of the cluster. Tool needed: 25 watt soldering iron. (Do not use a high powered electrician's soldering gun as it will ruin the circuit board.) Take the circuit card off the instrument cluster and flip it over. Note the location of the connector on the other side and touch the soldering iron carefully to each solder joint to re-solder them using the existing solder already on them. Plug it back in and viola, it's good to go!

I have a 1995 VW Jetta III Gls 2.0 my speedometer and odometer work intermittently. I can tap on the dash and the needle will jump up and down. This doesn't always make it work though. My fuel gau

This is a result of either a bad solder job at the factory or just bad solder. You can remove your gage cluster and remove and resolder the joints at the back of the 2 indicators. there are several sites on the internet that have specific instructions.

All gauges stopped working -- 99 Plymouth Voyager. This happened for brief time about a month ago and then started working again. Today, the probel has persisted for several hours.

smack the center of the dash right above the instrument cluster several times with the vehicle running. If the instrument cluster starts working you more than likley have a bad solder joint in the main connector on the circuit board.

You will need to pull the instrument cluster, partially disassemble it, checked for cracked solder joints, and then using a soldering iron re-flow those joints.

I have repaired many of these including my wife's town and country. I have photos of the bad joints let me know if you would like to see them an I'll get them posted.

If you have any other questions I will be happy to help.

Nothing works on my dashboard and i dont know where the fuses are for this

You can check fuses 28, 18, and 5 in the power distribution center under the hood.

I would suspect that you have bad solder joints in the main instrument cluster connector. It's a very common problem with a fairly easy fix.

The first thing you should try is start the vehicle and then firmly smack the top of the dash right above the instrument cluster with your hand. Do this a couple of times. If the dash comes to life or shows signs of coming to life than you probably have the bad solder joints.

Repairing is fairly easy as long as you have some basic mechanical skills and have some experience with a soldering iron. If you would like more info I would be happy to share it with you.

Dash lights for speedometer and tach don't work. All fuses are good. 95 Jetta

You have a bad electrical cluster. Replace the cluster and your dash lights speedometer and tach should work just fine.

Dash lights out for the odometer

You have to remove the dash and re-solder some resisters that go bad. I did it for my 99 Regal GS and it worked perfectly. Not that hard. Saw a youtube video

Can someone tell me why my cluster goes on and off in my 1997 plymouth grand voyager

It's a common problem on the Caravans, the problem is the wire harness at the back of the Instrument Cluster has a bad or cracked solder on the circuit board. If your remove the cluster from the dash and disconnect the wire harness, the clip on the circuit board at the center of the cluster that the wire harness connects to is the culprit. With a solder gun and some solder, you can fix this problem by re-soldering the terminals to the wire harness clip on the circuit board. Good luck and hope this helps, if your cluster goes off and does not come back on, give the top of the dash a good thump with your hand and the cluster should come back to life.

Speedo dont work on audi 200 89

It's one of three things. The sensor in the transmission is bad. The wiring from the sensor to the speedometer is bad. Or the speedometer itself is bad.

My spedometer goes on and off in my 1995 dodge neon

Pull trim panel off around cluster, remove screws holding cluster in, unplug harness from rear of cluster, and remove cluster. Now with tweezers, or needle nose pliers, slightly twist or bend, ends of spade pins in cluster, where it mates with connector to allow for better contact with harness connector. Spray electrical, or contact cleaner in connector & on cluster pins before re-assembly. re-install & make sure connector tight to cluster. Not real difficult, you'll be fine. let me know how you make out.

It could have a short behind the dash where you pushed the tripometer. Check all your fuses and you will find one for your gauges thats bad replace if and see if it works, Hope so Take care
