Need help correcting needles on dials

I have recently replaced my dial faces on the instrument cluster and the dials such as the fuel, engine temp, and speedo seem to be out the fuel shoots up to full when its less than half a tank the engine temp shoots up to 90 when i start it up from cold and the speedo seems slow to react or possibly not showing the correct speed i would be so great full for any help to get them back to correct working order. thanks

SOURCE: 1995 Honda Civic fuel gauge always shows full.

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!

Temp gauge says hot. anti-freeze is leaking head gasket and motor stays cold after running

Bad step motor in the instrument cluster that controls the temp gauge . The best way to check it would be with a professional type scan tool that can view sensor data parameters . You first need to know how that gauge gets the info to set the correct temp . There is a coolant temp sensor located in a coolant passage on the engine . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM needs this info fuel managment , the PCM also sends this info. to the instrument cluster over the Class 2 data network ! There is a microprocessor inside the I/C that deciphers these message bits an uses the step motor to control the gauge needle ! Aren't computers great ?

Temperature indicator

You may have a problem with the coolant temperature sending unit and or the fuel level sending unit or an issue with the instrument cluster.

Instruments not working on 1997 Jimmy, after replaceing the heater core

Check, you may have a connection to the cluster not fully plugged in. It's got to be at the cluster-the instrument panel.

Instrument cluster

Have you had it plugged into a diagnostic machine (PIWIS). First to read out fault codes and then to monitor live data from ecu to see if its sending rpm, speed, temp and fuel signals from sensors. If all this is been send to instrument cluster then looks like a cluster fault. Do the lights still work and do the rest of the illuminations come on when the lights are switched on?

Speedometer is stuck at the bottom. Moves in opposite direction.

Many speedo dials on many American models seem to suffer an early demise. It usually turns out to be the dial itself which is faulty, so I'd recommend checking and changing this first

Electronic gas gauge Gives wrong reading, after replacing fuel pump and floater.

instrument cluster is just for monitoring. but on modern cars there can be integrated circuits to calculate the actual amount of fuel inside tank. so sender sends signals and dashboard decodes it and show the amount on gauge.

which car do you have? if it is a later model with such system you may need to reset related software to match with new sender unit on pump or floater. (dealer can do this for you)

for example if you have a new daylight driving lights(LKM) controller on new BMW's if you replace it with a new one you need to code it to match with your car. if not it wont operate correctly.,

But there is an exeption. when sockets are broken or connections are wrong, fuel and temp gauges act erratic. they jump, pulsate or dont work at all. before replacing anything more be sure that sender unit or whole asembly is the correct part for your car. second be sure that connection has been done correctly.

Hello, we replaced the instrument cluster light bulbs on my 1997 Ford F150. As part of the operation we removed the dials on the instrument panel (didn't need to do that!) now all of the dials read...

no there isnt a way to reset the the instrument cluster back to zero if your talking about how many miles the vehicle has travelled in its will have to remove the dials and reposition them again...either tht or take it to ford and get some proffesional assistance...

Fuel gauge needle way past full, holding temp needle down so I cannot read temp either! 2005 with no low beams. Could problem be related?

Most likely this is the common 03-05 Cavalier instrument cluster problem where the stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board go out. It can be fixed, check this page for more on how to get it taken care of - Cavalier fuel gauge broken
