SOURCE: instrument panel cluster gauges and odometer has stopped working

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.

All my gauges just quit working. car still runs fine. they done this 2 or 3 times but would always start again. this time have not come back on. turn signals and dash lights work just no gauges.


At the moment, your instrument cluster maybe faulty? Due the basic tests, try to be sure. Check for applicable trouble codes relating to instrument cluster--pcm--communication codes. Some of the national brand auto stores in this country may check codes for free, if there are any.
Check voltage and ground circuits for the instrument cluster. The sending units for gages are wired to pcm then the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster telling instrument cluster what to do with gages. If you want to check gage sending units, that's ok.

If you have a scanner that can communicate with instrument cluster, you can get instrument cluster to do a self-test. The self-test, the instrument cluster will turn warning lamps on and off, sweep gages w/o outside data input. The instrument is considered good, if it passes that test, if not, the instrument cluster is considered faulty.

Dash lights work but no gauges in my 1994 dodge intrepid!! i have checked every fuse i can find in the dash and under the hood but they still won't work, they don't even flicker when i turn my key....


If you have a 1993-1995 Intrepid and you have a check engine light, you can find out what the codes are by following this process:
To obtain fault codes using the MIL (Check Engine Light):

1. Cycle ignition key to ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON within 5 second (do not actually crank engine!!)

2. Count the number of times the MIL on the instrument panel flashes on and off. The number of flashes represents the trouble code. There is a slight pause between the flashes representing the first and second digits of the code. Longer pauses seperate the individual two digit trouble code.

Example:
Lamp flashes 4 times, pauses, then flashes 6 more times. This is an indicates a DTC of 46.

3. Lamp will always flash 55 at the end of the test. This signals the end of the test.

You have put the computer in diagnostic mode and it will now display any codes that have been stored in memory. Each code will refer to a symptom your car is feeling.

Here is a list of all codes that can be displayed and what they mean:

Post Back With A Code, If you get one.
I Hope this Helps,

After reading through the Article, Pop the Hood and Check out the Grounding Locations. Look for any wire that looks like it should go somewhere. Screw it down (Ground) to the Frame Rail.
First Disconnect the Negative from Battery For a couple Minutes,
If the Engine was replaced they mighta missed a couple Grounds.
One is front Driver corner by the Battery
Two is on Passenger Corner.

Just bought this car, and speedometer/lights do not work.


I had a problem similar to this on a previous car, and I had two ways to fix it. I'll give you the least expensive one first. In either case, you'll need to remove your instrument cluster. If you need help with this, I can consult you further.

The first thing to try is checking the back of the instrument panel, where the connectors are. If they look dirty, clean them and their mating area with rubbing alcohol, and allow to dry. When this is done, inspect the connectors to make sure that they are not damaged. Then it might be a good idea to check your indicator bulbs too. Now, reinsert the gauge cluster and see if it work.

If that doesn't work, then you might need to replace your gauge cluster. This will be easy, as I am personally looking for a replacement cluster for my own MX-6 on eBay, and there's a lot of them. They're decently priced, and if your vehicle is exempt from mileage requirements on the title, this makes it a LOT easier.

Rundown - Check the gauges. Clean the connectors. Check the bulbs. If all else fails, get a new cluster.

Let me know if this helps. Good luck!
