Mitsubishi Lancer dashboard instruments

Fail when weather is hot and resume operating when a/c runs for approx 15 minutes

  • Anonymous May 01, 2009

    I have a Mitsubishi Lancer 2000. Dashboard works when weather is very cold, but when the surrounding environment heats up enough, dashboard does not work. Suspect that there is a loose connection to car and dashboard as when the dashboard does not work, the odometer does not clock..

    i have the same problem, i disassemble the dashboard and take a look at the pcb to check whether its just a component mulfunction and no luck, pcb is ok ( sometimes its running smoothly) maybe its the power supply that is powering up the board.

YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE DASH HAVE A LOOK AT THE BACK OF IT AND YOU WILL SEE SIX SCREWS AT THE REAR OF THE FUEL GAUGE AND TEMP GAUGE, NOW THE THIRD ONE FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE DASH IS THE ONE THAT YOU NEED TO PUT ABOUT 18 INCH PIECE OF WIRE ONTO THEN RUN IT TO AN IGNITION POWER SUPPLY! THIS WILL POWER THE DASH AS I HAVE REPAIRED MY SISTERS LANCER THIS WAY

    I have the exact same problem, it doesn't work when heats up. I have removed the dash and could not find any problems. Had tried to solder the joints on the circuitry and check wiring for loose connections but to no avail. Can you please email me a circuit diagram. Thanks,

I own a 2001 lancer and at the moment I've found that the dash is working in the morning (cold weather) and as the day warms up its stops working. Also I have found that the cd player cuts out every now and then. I am going to try trickymicky6's advice and also going to try the solution of turning the a/c on for 15 or so minutes. Auto mechanic said he couldn't help without looking it over and wreckers won't let you try a spedometer because they don't want it broken due to the fact that the fault might be in the car wiring itself. Hope this prevents an unecessary trip. Let you know how it all works out :)

Hi guys, i have mitsubishi lancer 2006 1.3 every time i start my car from cool engine, there a sound same as pouring water in my left dashboard near in steering and after a few second (around 10-30 sec)...


Hi,
I you believe the air trapped on your cooling system, just do this hints. Run your engine for awhile ( about 3-5 minutes) . then turn off your engine, open your radiator cap ( please wait foe awhile if it is too hot). Top up the coolant on your radiator. Repeat above step. It will be OK! now.

I want to change the dashboard on my 02 lancer es to one that says it can get to 180 mph


It should be possible. I would get the donor instrument panel and then remove yours and see if all the plugs are the same. If so you should be ok.

Electric fans operate continuously after initial warmup. Temp gauge shows ok - about half way. Fans turn off about 10-15 sec after ignition off. This occurs in cool weather, regardless of whether car has...


It's probably a bad fan switch. There are two sensors in your cooling system. One is the one that your dashboard reads, the other is the one that turns your fan on and off. If your fan switch is bad, it will make your fan stay on too long or when it doesn't need to be on. Good luck.

Car runs cold. had new thermostat replaced and system flush. still runs cold gage is just above c


Are you getting hot air when you turn the heat on (after car has been running for at least 30 minutes)? If you do get hot air, I would say your car is probably running at the normal operating temp. and you have a bad gauge or temperature sender.
