Question about Cars & Trucks
I have recently replaced my dial faces on the instrument cluster in my 206 and followed the instructions given but i plugged it all back in and the fuel gauge shot right up to full when really it was nearly empty engine temp is showing 90 when its cold the rev counter works fine but not sure on the speedometer as it seems slow to react or not sure if the speed shown is in correct does any one know how to rectify this i would be gratefully thankful for any help to get it back to correct working order

Check VSS Vehicule Speed Sensor wire may be corroted, bad connection or faulty; if 2wd the adaptor is located on the extension housing of the transmission (left side)
if 4wd look on transfer case extension (left side)

one thing you can try is to get one of those magnetic pick up tools at a parts store.......prefferably one with a large magnet...and put a cloth around the end of it so you dont scratch the plastic on you gauges and try to pull it back to where it belongs,i have done this a few times with good results,hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thanks for the tip. A strong magnet to the right side of the instrument cluster was used to reset the needle clockwise to its proper position."
Well, theres a sending unit/float in the tank that sends a signal thru
wires to your instrument cluster's fuel gauge. You should have an auto
electric repairperson determine where your problem lies. It's not often
the needle's just 'stuck' to where you could dislodge it. More often,
it's pegged overfull or underempty-signaling a shorted component
upstream of the gauge.
Similar problem and found the solution:
In the back of the gauge, where the 2 coils are located, there are very tiny copper wires which connect all the resistors/diodes. they each travel from within the coil and are soldered to 3 out of the 4 mounting pins. if any of these wires are shorting out or disconnected, the gauge will malfunction.
- take the gauge and flip upside down
- temp gauge has 1 resistor (blue) and 1 diode (copper)
- fuel gauge has 2 resistors, no diodes
- 1 wire should be attached to bottom mounting pin (letter E for EMPTY)
- 1 wire should be attached to pin holding both resistors (half tank)
- 1 wire should be attached to the stand-alone ground pin (no mounting bracket)
Hope that helps!
