ABS and Brake light on dashboard is on. Speedometer is not working too


You have too many too many things going on to give a good diagnoses. It really needs to go on a scanner. My best guess, is the instrument panel is bad.

When i start, the fuel gauge darts around the quarter marker then settles on empty no matter the amount of fuel.


in the dash, there is a small step down transformer, from 12 volts to about 3. Seems to not be working have it checked out.

Fuel guage always shows empty


It sounds as if the fuel tank sending unit is faulty. This is a small float connected to a variable resistor on the fuel pump/sending unit assembly. Unfortunately this assembly is fairly expensive (over $300) and the fuel tank may need to be removed to replace it.

My fuel gage shows empty with the light on all the time and i just replaced the fuel pump with a brand new one and it still shows empty with the light on. What could be the problem now?


Check out the fuel level sensor, and or the guage itself. These guages do tend to out, can replace the little stepper motor on the back of it for cheap.

The dashboard


You may have a couple separate concerns. The fuel gauge if it is on empty may have a hole in the float. The speedometer odometer and trip meter is probably a broken gear in the speedo assembly. If the speedometer itself works it is getting a signal from the speed sensor.

New Century - DashBoard Problems


My 1999 Buick Regal was doing the same sort of thing. Randomly the gauges would go crazy and then the engine would shut down. I ended up replacing the ignition switch. Not exactly where the key goes in, but the switch box behind it on the inside of the column. I had to take off the steering wheel, air bag and everything, but it hasn't had any problems like that since.

Dashbord instrumentation Non functional for Japan imported FB14 Sentra


VOLTAGE REGULATOR
Located behind the instrument cluster
It is attached to the rear panel of the cluster.
input from battery is 10Volts, it regulates down to 5Volts
Any higher voltage inputed will overload the capacitors and resistors will burn,
Also check power distribution center, under hood upper motor area in drivers corner, check all relays and fuses.
Before you rip in to the dash check all ground wires, battery to ground, harness grounds, driver/passenger mid fram rail, Fuel sender is also ground to top of gas tank. IF ALL gauges do not work, that just leaves voltage regulator and/or cluster is malfunction,
