If your refering to the light on the odometer and its dark there is a little resister on the back of the cluster that you cannot fix yourself unless your an electronic oriented person. this happened to me. I went on ebay and bought another one and it worked about 2 years and not its the same thing, black with no light. I read some where these are warranteed for life by buick and they have to replace them but that was around 8 years ago and not sure if it still applys.

The cluster will have to be sent out for repairs or exchange by a dealer or see Model Electronics.

SOURCE: none of the instruments in the cluster work (Gas gauge, speedomot

It is possible that the connector came off the back of the circuit board behind the speedometer. Do the lights work IN the speedometer and gauges? Could also be that the ground wire loosened up under the dash, usually on the drivers side. Just some suggestions that I thought might help. Best wishes to you.

SOURCE: The odometer in my 2000 Buick Century is not

Yes the dealer is right. there are several places that rebuild these for less than a new one. The dealer should be able to send it out or get a rebuilt cluster. If the dealer doenst want to help you, find a good repair shop, they usually have a place they get clusters from.

Remove the instrument cluster. Un-plug the attached wiring harness. Lay the cluster on its face and un snap the black plastic cover over the PC board. Carefully lift the PC board off the gauge assembly. When you turn over the board, you will see four small surface-mount resistors burned and or fallen off the board. They are grouped together on one end of the board. You will need to replace them with four 120 ohm 1/2 watt resistors.

How do I DETERMAN WHAT IS WRONG my speedometer and rpm gauges aren't working


a fuse blew.
this car has an electronic dash cluster. (with brain)
first is fuses. (check them first) (2 of them)
second is scan it. scan the PCM for DTC error !

if rpm dies, for sensors the engine dies...
The PCM runs spark and injection off 2 sensor and RPM
if they die so does spark and injection.
the cluster has self test mode, try that first?
this proves the cluster is ok.
this is covered in the FSM for your JEEP

the WJ jeep
Chapter 8J covers all this.. to great details.
page 8
fuse 17 and 22 must be good. JB box, cab.

posted now 100 of times, here it is again.
quote
The instrument cluster actuator test will put the
instrument cluster into its self-diagnostic mode. In
this mode the instrument cluster can perform a selfdiagnostic
test that will confirm that the instrument
cluster circuitry, the gauges, the PCI data bus message
controlled indicators, and the electro-luminescent
illumination lamp (if equipped) are capable of
operating as designed. During the actuator test the
instrument cluster circuitry will sweep each of the
gauge needles across the gauge faces, illuminate each
of the segments in the Vacuum-Fluorescent Display
(VFD), turn all of the PCI data bus message-controlled
indicators on and off again, and turn the electro-
luminescent illumination lamp (if equipped) on
and off again.
Successful completion of the actuator test will confirm
that the instrument cluster is operational. However,
there may still be a problem with the PCI data
bus, the Powertrain Control Module, the Airbag Control
Module (ACM), the Body Control Module (BCM),
the Controller Anti-lock Brake (CAB), the Sentry Key
Immobilizer Module (SKIM), or the inputs to one of
these electronic control modules. Use a DRBIIIt scan
tool to diagnose these components. Refer to the
appropriate diagnostic information.
If an individual indicator lamp or the electro-luminescent
illumination lamp do not illuminate during
the actuator test, the instrument cluster should be
removed. However, check that the incandescent lamp
bulb is not faulty, that the bulb holder is properly
installed on the instrument cluster electronic circuit
board, or that the electro-luminescent lamp pigtail
wire connector is properly connected to the instrument
cluster electronic circuit board before considering
instrument cluster replacement. If the bulb and
bulb holder, or the electro-luminescent lamp connection
check OK, replace the faulty instrument cluster
unit.
(1) Begin the test with the ignition switch in the
Off position.
(2) Depress the odometer/trip odometer switch button.
(3) While still holding the odometer/trip odometer
switch button depressed, turn the ignition switch to
the On position, but do not start the engine.
(4) Release the odometer/trip odometer switch button.
(5) The instrument cluster will automatically
begin the actuator test sequence, as follows:
(a) The cluster will turn on, then off again each
of the PCI data bus message controlled indicators
(except Airbag) to confirm the functionality of the
indicator and the cluster control circuitry:
(b) The cluster will sweep the needles for each of
the gauges from minimum to maximum and back
to minimum to confirm the functionality of the
gauge and the cluster control circuitry:
(c) Only on models with a premium version of
the cluster, the cluster will illuminate the electroluminescent
lamp and turn it off again to confirm
the functionality of the lamp and the cluster control
circuitry.
(d) The cluster will sequentially step the odometer/
trip odometer VFD display from all zeros
(000000) through all nines (999999) to confirm the
functionality of all VFD segments and their control
circuitry, then display the software version number,
followed by "DONE".
(6) The actuator test is now completed. The instrument
cluster will automatically exit the self-diagnostic
mode and return to normal operation at the
completion of the test, if the ignition switch is turned
to the Off position during the test, or if a vehicle
speed message indicating that the vehicle is moving
is received from the PCM over the PCI data bus during
the test.
(7) Go back to Step 1 to repeat the test, if
required
end quote.


if this passes and fuses are good
then you may have DTC errors scanned
if you scan it and you see comminications error from PCM to cluster, well that be it. ... and am not going into THAT>here.

My miles gauge stop working in my 03 Saturn vue


So does the Trip odometer work? Does the odometer work? If you answer is "sort of", does the odometer return to the same mileage every time your 2003 Saturn VUE sits overnight? The VUE has an all electronic odometer sensor that is in the transmission, so you may need to replace that. I also agree with JDCamped that those wires may need replaced, but the mice? I would think burned/shorted in a wiring harnes is far more common and you should see a "Check Engine" light. The cluster just shows the data from the sensors, if they are blank, then that is the cluster.

NONE OF THE GAUGES WORK...HOW DO I FIX THAT?


That depends if you have analog or digital gauge cluster. If they're analog (needle type) usually a blown fuse is the problem, if they're digital (LCD display) and the only thing visable is the odometer, usually means the cluster needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps you......

Instrument cluster is not working.


The odometer "error" is usually a BCM (body control module) problem, not the instrument panel. All the electrical signals you have lost all go to the BCM before going to the instrument panel.
It could be a simple connector problem.

The speed odometer is not working


If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, the problem is usually in the cluster.
If both are not working, the problem may be the speed sensor in the transmission.

The speedometer, odometer, and tac are not working. It has been determined it is not a sensor. All are working behind the scenes but not on the surface. What could possibly be the problem?


i have seen and replaced may accord 94-97 gauge clusters for problems like this. most common is the odometer stops working or works erratically. you should check ebay for a gauge cluster
