1 Answer

I have a 1997 Plymouth Neon. The car runs great. The lights all come on but the gauges suddenly stopped working. It was fine yesterday..could it be a fuse?

    Thanks for your help!! The previous owner is going to fix it for me.
    For a temporary fix, he pulled off the dash cover and made some adjustment. That told me that this was an issue with the car. However, he's a pretty honest guy and is going to go ahead and take care of the repairs.

    Thanks again!!

    I AM ALSO HAVING TROUBLES WITH MY GAUGES STOP WORKING WHILE DRIVING. SOMETIMES IT IS JUST THE SPEEDOMETER. IS THIS JUST A FACTORY SENSOR AND HOW DO I REPLACE IT AND/OR FIX THE PROBLEM?

Try a couple of good thumps with fist above dash (don't laugh) where cluster gauges are, and see if it comes back on, or may when you hit a bump. I had a 95 that did it all the time until I fixed it. If a bump or thump gets it back on, let me know, I'll give you details on fixing.

    Yah, All I did with mine was twist the little spade pins, with tweezers,on cluster itself, that mates with plug in dash,one at a time, to allow for a better connection, worked like a charm.

Gauges in my 1998 plymouth neon stopped working when i hit a bump


Sounds like an intermittent loss of power to the instrument cluster to me. Remove the instrument cluster and inspect the electrical connectors on the back of the cluster.

If my 1997 Plymouth Neon needed a fuel filter or a fuel pump what kind of problems would my car have? The gas gauage only works half the time and when it doesnt work my car doesnt run, when put into gear...


Your symptoms sound like a fuel pump, not the filter. The gas gauge is controlled by a sending unit that is mounted on the pump in the tank. If the gauge is sometimes not working, chances are, neither is the pump, which would cause the car not to start. The pump not only provides fuel, but also pressurizes the fuel system for the injectors and throttle body. The fuel filter would cause poor mileage and hesitation when accelerating. A completely blocked filter would cause the car not to run, but your gas gauge would still work since it's reading the level of fuel in the tank, not whether it's coming through the line to the engine.
