Instrument Panel keeps blowing fuses

There is s burnt smell of plastic in the passenger compartment, fuse keeps blowing and speedometer, tach, fuel gauge don't work. Everything else seems to be okay, lights, radio, wipers etc. Could it be the ground for the instrument panel? If so, where do I find it?

It isn't the ground; if you lost the ground, it wouldn't be blowing fuses-it wouldn't be doing anything.
There may be a short in the panel, or in the wiring to it. You will need to pull the instrument cluster out to investigate. If the wiring and connectors look good, probably need a new cluster.

I am sure you know this already but because other people read these posts I wanted to include it. The "code" that is displayed by the odometer means there is a connection failure between the gauge cluster and the ECU. this NO BUS is often accompanied by malfuntioning gauges, the check engine light, and the airbag light, although exact gauges and lights may vary. THE SOLUTION in most cases is to remove the gauge cluster and clean the contacts of the cluster. The application of dialectric grease to the electrical contacts will also help greatly. Once the connection is passing voltage on all circuits, the gauges will imediately return to normal without needing a hard reset of the ECU. If that doesn't work you may be in need of a Pigtail, which is the link between your engine computer and the dash. The pigtail is around $35.

SOURCE: none of the gauges on the instrument panel are

It sounds like one of the communication paths between the ECU and various sensors is open. It could be caused by an open or broken wire in one of the wiring harnesses.

Everything on dash panel not working.


Fuse for the instrument panel is possibly blown. Check your owners manual for the proper location of the fuse. If you do not have a manual they are available online in PDF version.
