Question about 1994 Nissan Cefiro

1 Answer

The instrument dial needles in my Cefiro have become very hard to see. They're dark red and thin and just don't show up (day or night). This has become progressively worse over the years. Is there a way to make thewm visible?

If you can get the Perspex face off the dash panel and you use a very fine paint brush you may be able to paint the pointers with a anti collision orange paint > this tends to reflect any light and would be visible with dash lights on. IF you cannot get to the pointers easily then a replacement dash unit may be the answer.

Insturment panel is not working


An instrument cluster is the collection of gauges, dials and lights right above the steering wheel that tell you what's going on in your vehicle.
Generally, your car's instrument cluster will last the lifetime of the car and you'll never have a problem with any of them. However, when one of them fail, you'll have a problem that ranges from mildly annoying (the engine lights up and doesn't turn off) to inconvenient (the gas gauge doesn't register) to dangerous (the oil indicator doesn't work). Some of the more common failures include:
  • Erratic or non-functional gauges & inaccurate readings.
  • LCD not Stuck or fluttering needles on gauges
  • Burned out indicator lights
  • Burned out/dark spot backlighting
  • Loss of LCD display or erratic operation (number 8 showing as 0

Gluster gauge won't illuminate


Hello hayeizmyhome...Very low mileage for a 1990 model. However... this is usually around the mileage interval the dreaded instrument cluster, panel and dash light failures start...lights will flicker, then go out, gauges will start going up and down, lcd's will become hazey and hard to read....etc.
The instruments are illuminated both day and night while the ignition is on.
When the ignition is off, the panel goes dark and you can’t see the gauges at all.
The lexus has an electronic circuit board behind the inst. cluster that has been the problem. Very expensive repair if done by dealer.
*TIP* This circuit board can be repaired if you know a good electrical technician much cheaper.
The recommended timing belt replacement interval on the LS is 120k...water pump should be replaced also, the timing belt runs the water pump. The LS has a non-interference engine, meaning if the belt breaks, no damage will be done to the engine...
Hope this answers your questions..and your lexus runs for many more miles...with proper care and maintainnace, it will.

Replace the ignition cables, check if you have any water around any of the electrical components, or fuse boxes.
