If you start the engine cold you will drive around 2-3 miles or about 5 minutes before you will see the temp gauge rise . It takes a short time before the water in the engine is hot enough to register on the gauge.As to the speedo check the unit on the tranny for broken wires or faulty unit or a code ion the cpu

SOURCE: Speedometer and gas gauge are giving false readings!

IT SURE SOUND TO ME LIKE YOU ARE MISSING A GROUND TO THESE GAUGES. THIS WILL BE TOUGH TO LOCATE WITHOUT A SCHEMATIC DRAWING TO HELP YOU. YOU MAY BE ABLE TO LOOK UNDER THE DASH FOR A LOOSE WIRE. YOU CAN ALSO CHECK THE FUSE PANEL FOR THE FUSE MARKED GAUGES TO SEE IF IT IS MAKING GOOD CONTACT. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. LET ME KNOW PLEASE. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: The oil pressure gauge keeps dropping down to 0 while i am driving

If you don't hear any ticking or knocking while the pressure gauge drops, the problem is probably a failing "oil pressure sensor". If you do hear a ticking or knocking, the problem is probably a failing "oil pump".

SOURCE: Gas gauge temp gauge and speedometer all went past

Scan the PCM (power train control module) Most auto supply stores will do it free (Auto Zone ect.) write down the codes and check a repair manual, or search the codes on line. More than likely the PCM module went bad or the connector is loose. Call your local junk yard get a price for that model. They are not cheap should solve your problem. Hope this helps?

SOURCE: my 93 jeep wrangler 4 cylinder temp gauge doesnt

depending on how fast, this happens, could be an air lock in cooling syste, or a bad head gasket, or head. does the gauge ever go too high? can you hear gurgling in the rad, and does it ever push out coolant?

Whats wrong with Helen?


The speed sensor might be bad. I used to own a 99 Mitsubishi Eclipse with the same symptons. The car will start, but will not pass the 1st or 2nd gear, the speedometer will be at 0. I replaced the speed sensor and all the problems went away.

Speedometer, odometer,and gas gauge not working


Sounds like you have a bad Instrument Cluster (Also called a Speedometer) and the easiest thing to do is to go to a Salvage Yard and replace it. You can also go to EBAY or www.car-part.com and there is a locator for cars by Price/Distance and you can get a used one. I just checked and there are 12 between the price of $15 - $40 on Car-Part.com.

I have a 2002 ford ranger that got a lot of water in the gas. I have drained the tank and added heat as well as replaced the filter. When I try to start it the battery gauge goes down to 0 and all I hear...


I think your on the right path with your shorting thought. Is the distance you can travel always different or always the same? If it is always the same then it may not be a short or how long can it sit and idle when you get it running?

The rpm gauge is not reading how it should.. how can i fix this?


In order to calculate your speed by the RPM gauge, you need to know your car's gear ratio, the diameter of your tires and what gear you are in. It would be safer to take your car into the shop and have the speedometer repaired. It is a relatively inexpensive repair and much better than a speeding ticket. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

In July, I got caught in a flash flood with my 2002 vw beetle and had trouble with my speedometer (stayed on 0), odometer, fuel, and RPM gauge on the dashboard. Speed Sensor was replaced 2 weeks ago, but...


I would start by checking the connections on the cluster, water is the worst thing for electrical components, now a flash flood did the water fill in the car? if so then you may what to have computerr checked also, this sounds like the connections may be bad at times.

1997 Geo Metro speedometer and odometer do not work


Let me guess, it goes up to about 30, stays there, and if you go faster (past what would be the halfway point of your speedometer) it starts dropping below 30. It sounds like the type of speedometer that uses two magnetic cores at 90 degrees to each other, and one has gone out.

Troubleshooting and repair should be similar to this: http://www.fieros.de/en/articles/speedo.html
