    One indicator does work: the ASC which is traction control, right? Does this mean your solution is not correct?

Hi there, when you get a couple of instruments not working (temp , fuel , speedo etc) , then the problem is the connector to instrument cluster.

Pajero has a connector located behind the dash, that has four plugs/cpnnectors, and also a separate cable for the speedo.

The instrument panel connector wiring harness go through the fire wall into the engine area , where is connected to temp sender, speed sensor sender etc.

The most likely is that two or three of the connectors behind the instrument panel , or the connectors to speed sender, temp and fuel are unplugged on engine side.

You need to access the connectors behind the instrument panel, check that they are connected and test them with a car-tester or a multimeter, and plug them back properly, either on instrument panel side or on engine side.

Well there has to be a broken cord that was supposed to be leading to that part of the dash board or there may even be a blown fuse. If you can and you know how to, get a volt meter and test all of the fuses in the fuse box and make sure there is power running to the dashboard, because it is weird for all of those instruments to stop working all at the same time. If all of the fuses are working and you are sure of that, there has to be a broken cord or a short in the cord that is not allowing any power to the instrument board but will let only the one light work. If it gets any worse, it will not work at all. This is most likely with the connection since one light still works.

Dry solder joint on the printed circuit of the dash board.
you need to remove the instrument cluster and dismantle the cluster
this can be tricky if you haven't got experience in this sort of stuff. the fault is in the connection for the ribbon to the circuit board.

2003 Satria, Tacho and Fuel gauge dont work . Fuel gauge comes up now & again low fuel light works. Tacho works now & again. But speedo and temp do work all the time.


It may be that the speedo and temp are mechanical, whereas the tach and fuel are electrical. Check fuse for inst. cluster for clean and tight fitment. Check electrical connection at back of inst. cluster.

Maybe, a wire came lose. Did you hit anything? Spill any water inside? Could be a short, considering they all went out. Did they all go out at once?

What do you mean cluster contacts bad !Whats the solution?


Remove the speedometer head unit, and check the soldered joints on the back. It's a common problem with these and some Chrysler products. "Randomly" is when the crack closes and makes contact, like if you hit the top of the dash and it starts working again. The speedometer head cluster.
