Question about 1993 Mazda MX-6
I just bought this car this weekend, and neither the speedometer nor any of the dash/indicator lights work. The gas guage and tach work just fine though. What is the problem, and is it something I could fix myself?
I had a problem similar to this on a previous car, and I had two ways to fix it. I'll give you the least expensive one first. In either case, you'll need to remove your instrument cluster. If you need help with this, I can consult you further.
The first thing to try is checking the back of the instrument panel, where the connectors are. If they look dirty, clean them and their mating area with rubbing alcohol, and allow to dry. When this is done, inspect the connectors to make sure that they are not damaged. Then it might be a good idea to check your indicator bulbs too. Now, reinsert the gauge cluster and see if it work.
If that doesn't work, then you might need to replace your gauge cluster. This will be easy, as I am personally looking for a replacement cluster for my own MX-6 on eBay, and there's a lot of them. They're decently priced, and if your vehicle is exempt from mileage requirements on the title, this makes it a LOT easier.
Rundown - Check the gauges. Clean the connectors. Check the bulbs. If all else fails, get a new cluster.
Let me know if this helps. Good luck!
