SOURCE: I have a 1995 Dodge

Okay...I've answered this question about 100 times. And anyone that's listened to me has fixed their problem. I know it sounds unconventional...but trust me because you have nothing to lose at this point. Go out to the vehicle...turn the key on the run position...hit the dashboard above the steering wheel hard. Not hard enough to break it or you...but hard. A couple times if necessary. Everything should spring to life. What usually happens is the instrument cluster plug (contact) becomes corroded and loses contact. Either that or the solder joints have become compromised and lost contact. It'll mean that you'll have to replace the instrument cluster. Are the lights by the heater control flashing? I suggest this as a diagnostic application only. Try it and then get back to me. If it works, which it should...PLEASE leave a comment and rate my assistance. Had someone done it in the past, you would know that it works and fixed it already. You can check my comments from waaaaaaay back. One of the Fixya experts tried it and left a comment. It works (a day, week, month, year it depends). It's not a new vehicle and money in your pocket is found money. Thanks.

SOURCE: what coulda caused my fuel gauge to quit working on my 1995 jeep cherokee sport?

Dear Josh Wambles,

Some of these units suffer with stuck floats in fuel tanks, so the best thing you can do is drain out your fuel tank properly, then fill it with water and then try and get a reading, as the tank is filled, the float rises, electrical resistance is altered and as a result, you get a reading on your guage. If filling with water and cleaning out the tank doesnt work, then im afraid you are going to be dismantling the device that is attached to the tank and you will be checking that; but just before you do, try removing the guage itself and putting a multimeter to the wires and see if you have a reading, if you do, your guage is trashed, get a new one. If not, then as said, you will be busy with the float and other components that are probably fitted inside the tank.

What can cause this?

Corrosion, running your car too low on fuel, busted electrical connections, water, sediment in the tank, rubbish fuel, bad maintenance.

I hope this is the fixya for you and I look forward to hearing how you get on, in the meantime, if you have any further questions, then do let me know and I will respond as quickly as I can.

Yours Sincerely

SOURCE: fuel pump in 96 Chevy Blazer replaced by mechanic, gas gauge didn't work after, took back, gas gauge only goes halfway now. What is causing this and what is remedy?

incorrectly and half assed installed. putting a fuel pump in a chevy is very difficult and takes patients. most mechanics dont have that so go to another shop and make sure they fix the problem before you pay.

I have a 94 audi 80 and the rpm gauge just stopped working and the check engine light came on. The car runs fine no issues, oul levels are fine but just the rpm gauge suddenly stopped working

Not sure what is causing it, but it sounds like you're running on 3 cyllinders. Check plugs, wires, timing . timing belt may have jumped, bad injector, low fuel pressure.

99 mercury cougar v6 2.5L, temp gauge is reading hot after thermostat change why? is it a air bubble or is it a bad temp. sending unit? any other ideas? please help

May be a defective thermostat or place in the wrong direction. If it's properly installed, might want to check the fan operation which may be producing the overheating.
If fan is good, one way to remove air in the coolant system is to run vehicle while all heaters on. take extra coolant and stop along the way to top off if needed. While driving, keep listening for the fan to begin running when vehicle reaches high temperatures.
If you continue to experience overheating, may want to take to a local known repair shop for further troubleshooting.

2001 chevy suburban fuel gauge stoped working

If the sending unit was connected and grounded, I would guess the gauge in the cluster is faulty.

Fuel gauge doesn't work. checked fuses, didn't help

The issue may be the the in tank fuel gauge float. Over time these can corrode and/or get gummed up which would cause it to get stuck. Another issue maybe the wires running from the in-tank pump to the gauge cluster, if one of the wires has become loose or broken, this would cause the issue as well.

Gas gauge works intermittently-1996 Hyundai Accent

Two things here.Its either theres a bad ground from the tank to the frame or the fuel sending unit in the tank is not working properly...Give all the ground wires from the fuel pump harness up to the motor..Make sure not corroded.If all the wires are good than its the fuel sender in the tank..Hope this helps you find your problem and have a great day...
