2005. Why have gauges ceased to function?

Gauges have their own fuse. Under dash fuse panel. If it keeps blowing, you have a short to the power wire.

Hi, I have a 2004 Corola and I recently had my flasher fuse replaced 3 times in one day. When I tuen the flasher on it will work fine until I stop and the fuse causes the car to turn off. Do you know

no my answer, dont buy that $500 PCM yet.
the Gauge fuse , see bottom left, above. runs lots of things,
the FSM covers this, fully 100%
it runs the Flasher module, the ECM, the integration module (BCM like) that runs interior lighting and many things off the IM.
if the fuse only blows, while blinking , id inspect all 4 corner lamps
id check the wires there and then replace all 4 lamps. if you
dont know how to bench test a lamp. then just replace them.
Gauge , (funny huh) runs the Alternator, if it shorts, boom the Gauge fuse blows. as you can see finding a short is not easy,
you never said how soon it blows. so,,,,, if quicky, id run it
with no alt connected. rear plug IG Plug pulled. do so for no more
that about 15minutes, the battery will drain fast (no head lights please,or fans for heater, no electrical things on, flashers on for sure.)
there are 30 pages, to see all IG1 power feed wires.
i didnt try to find them all.
but that is my point, if you dont have the book or login
then all this is pure wild speculation and guessing.
I did this for a living, so ,know the ropes.
once I have this information, i then use my ammeter to find it.
see a area MASTER here, do that.

and chris.

in your case you know what fuse blows. (stated wrong)
and with that , fact i can attach my ammeter, and the pull
modules to find which one has the active short.
in the case if the blinker module is passing excessive current
I then drop off the lamps loads from the flasher module
if that shows that my short is gone then the lamps are shorted.
i can even measure all 4 lamp wire feed to read this short with my ammeter and my CB.
using this.
this the red fuse below is GAUGE. the module on the right is the Flasher module.

Odometer cluster fuse keeps blowing

If it's the GAUGE fuse than there are a lot of components on this wire. The smarter thing to do before you replaced all that stuff would have been to unplug those items, install a fuse, turn the key on and see if it blows. Obviously at this point we know it would have. Since the rear defrost, DRL, audio alarm, ac relay, 4x4 system and keyless entry module shape this fuse it may be a good idea to to get yourself a good wiring diagram and a good volt meter to track down the shorted component or wire.

The gauges won't move and the fuse is not blowed and turn signal will not come on

double check fuses there is a fuse for the instrument cluster ,also if none of the blinkers work most likely the multi function switch is bad which is the blinker stick assy

I have a 1986 chevy truck, the gauge/idle fuse blowes when you turn the key. The gas gauge and other gauges dont work but runs good. Any suggestions

It could be a short in the instrument cluster-maybe one of the non-working gauges. You could pull the cluster out and try to find it, or just try another cluster from a salvage yard.

Why does my lexus es300 keep blowing the gauges fuse

I don't know if you've fixed it yet but check the shifter position switch (usually located below the shifter). Just unplug it, replace the fuse and see what happens. The problem is either in that switch or in the wiring between that switch and the gauge cluster.

If that doesn't work you'll need to get a wiring diagram for the gauge cluster, pull the cluster out, and clip the wires for the shifter position switch one at a time until you clip the one and the fuse doesn't blow anymore.

That should solve the problem for you.

Hi, I recommend you try disconnecting the speed sensor on the transmission output shaft and drive the car to see if the the fuse blows. If it doesn't, replace the sensor and reconnect. If the fuse blows, there may be a problem with the instrument cluster.
