SOURCE: Speedometer and Tachometer

common problem on caravans bad solder joints on circuit board of instrument cluster.(known problem dodge refuses to acknowledge) remove cluster from dash use a cheap $12.00 Low Power soldering iron from radio shack and reheat solder joints on cluster. can be very hard to notice broken solder joints to the untrained eye. trust me on 90% of all weird electrical problems this model is known for this cures it. not bcm or ecm modules like some mechanics would have you believe.

Gmc problems


If you replaced the cluster, the tach was replaced. So its probably not a problem with both the old and new tach. Its probably a problem in the wiring to the tach. Put a multimeter across the tach signal wires on AC setting, rev the car, does the meter reading change?

Tachamererter intermit dont work


Tachometer failures are very common on this brand. The tach will tend to hop around first and then just stop.
The most common failure for this concern is a faulty tach in the instrument cluster. This can be checked by using a scan tool to observe the instrument cluster data for the r.p.m. signal, if the scan tool shows a tach signal (RPM) signal then the instrument cluster isn't displaying this signal and is faulty and needs replaced or repaired.

Hope helps.

The front door speakers are not working, but from time to time they come on for a brief moment. also, the door chime only works if the front door speakers are working. weirdest thing i've ever seen....


The door chime is played over the speaker. I had the same issue the speaker was junk. The circuit resistance was correct but no tunes. Replaced the speaker with one from the junk yard and sounds great all the time.
