My temperature gauge don't move and my check engine light does not come on


Bulb is possibly out behind the instrument cluster for the check engine light. As far as the temperature guage not working it sounds like your temperature sending unit is not working if it doesn't move at all. If your thermostat is stuck open it would come up some. If not your temperature sending unit is bad.

Mazda temperature gauge


When the gauge doesn't work, you have to determine, is it the gauge on the dash or the temperature sending unit on the engine or a wiring problem. Try this: find the sending unit on the engine and pull the wire off it. With the ignition key on, touch the wire to a metal ground on the engine. Does the temp. gauge move? If it does, replace the sending unit. If it doesn't move, replace the temperature gauge on the instrument panel.

Guages not working,


If all voltages checked ok,then most probably its faulty instrument cluster board on which gauges are connected.Yes if cluster circuit board looks ok,then also it can be faulty.Somewhere there is minute short or burn on board then such prolem arises.
Also check the fuse box.One under hood and other under dash.Inspect each and every fuse and see if all are fine or not.

Just bought a used 1995 Honda Prelude and the Tach and speedometer work along with the clock but I can't see any other gauges. (Gas, oil, temp and whatever else might be there. What is the problem?


Since you just bought the car, I thought that you might not be aware of the instrument lighting control. I apologize if you know this:
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness.
To reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness. Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
Hope it's that simple.

Back lights are dim on speedometer, odometer


You probably checked this, but sometimes we forget.
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness. Also, to reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness.
Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
I hope helps and it's that simple for you.

Temperature gauge


For electrically operated temp gauge, check the power supplying it. Most often, this is connected
to either the accessory fuse or front dashboard
instrument panel, check for busted fuse at the
fusebox. If every fuse is okey, then your temp
gauge needs replacement.
