Check the overdrive wire coming out of the bottom of the gear shift lever. My 98 Gr Mar. had a tiny burr in the wire there. You will need to remove the whole gear shift lever cover, the ignition key ( in order to get the top piece off) and the bottom metal plate under the plastic cover on the bottom of the steering column. This is all very simple and quite easy. Just go on line to find how simple it is to remove the key.The wire had a bare spot right near the bottom of the shift lever and all I did was electric tape it up!

SOURCE: gauges on dash dont work, windows dont work,

Hello , What year is the vehical? Have you recently changed a computer or ecu on the vehical? Have you recently had keys made for it ? I ask these things because There may be a transponder system on the Jeep , and if its not sync'd up properly it will cause all these problems you have listed. It may even be as simple as a loose or faulty ground wire as well. Thank you , Quinn Texada.

Have your battery tested or first clean the terminals and cables. Check the ground cables, not just the one on the battery but frm engine to body etc etc.

95 neon dash lights work but guages dont work at all.


Lets start at the beginning. Did you check the fuse and the circuit that powers the gauges ?

Probably bad ground in the dash circuitry. You'll have to pull it out and check all the connections. Big job.

check all the fuses and replace any that are blown. also check beattery wires and make sure the positive wires are not touching anything metal.look for burnt marks or black spots on the wires too. also have the battery fuse/relay checked.

94 accord ex 5spd problems with speedo.&dash lights


there are two reasonable explanations for this:
vehicle speed sensor is faulty and speedo cable is faulty and bulbs for illumination or illumination switch is faulty but I would lean with all of those its your gauge cluster
or gauge cluster itself has gone out both of these arent that expensive heres some places where you can get cheap replacements

The gauges have stopped working ? Fuse under dash seems to be OK ?


Behind the dash is what they call a constant voltage regulator. It controls the guages. It's small and located behind the dash near speedo.
