Question about Peugeot 206
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
Turn every thing off and set them to the bottom mark ,if this doesnt work then try a new head from the scrap yard

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!
