Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad

I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

1993 chrysler Fifth Avenue with digital speedometer. The red neon needles for ALL my gauges in the dashboard are not lighted. The needles are either all there or they all go away at the same time. The...

This is a common problem with this vintage Chrysler gauge cluster. To DIY repair yourself... it's easy, don;t worry: You need a low watt soldering iron... 25-35 watt. Do NOT use a high powered soldering gun or you will ruin the electronics!!! Remove the gauge cluster from the instrument panel. There will be several philips head screws you will need to take out. Be gentle on the plastic as it become brittle with age! After you get the entire cluster out... you will note it has one or perhaps 2 electrical connectors on the back side. Carefully disconnect those. Take the gauge cluster to the place where you'll be soldering and have some small screwdrivers to remove the circuit board from the gauge housing. Hold the circuit board by the edges. On the front side on the board, locate the corresponding soldering pins to the main connector in the center of the gauge assembly. Heat up your soldering iron and touch to the iron to each pin connection on the front side of the circuit board to reflow the solder. (DO NOT TRY TO DO this from the plastic connector side on the gauge assembly, as you will melt the plastic connector ruining it. and it may not melt the solder all the way through to the connection on the front side (inside the gauge). Reinstall the gauge and it will work fine for you.

I have a 1997 Dodge Voyager Ralleye and the speedometer needle fell off because the instrument panel shorts out once in a while and my wife smacked the top of the dash and it fell I pulled apart...

with the needles off and the scanner set to calibrate the speedometer and all the rest of the needles need to be installed at 1/2 full range with the system on unless otherwise noticed by the scanner.

2004 ford taurus occasionaly wont start right up.

Can you tell me if it was in fact the starter? I have an 04 Ford Taurus with 99K miles on it. This week when I started it up, not everytime but often the abs, brake, tire and traction control lights will stay on. Also the computer display will read either park brake engaged or passenger door ajar. I turn it off and start it again and the issue goes away. This morning it acted as though it had a dead battery and I had the clicking sound behind the dash as well as the vibrating needles. Thanks!

Will not start. Makes loud clicking noise. Instrument Panel goes crazy. All needles go to far right.

sounds like your battery is very low. that clicking is your starter trying to work. but without enough power the pinion on the starter can't activate to crank the engine over. have the battery and alternator checked if possible.
