Does the 98 Ford F-150 5.4 triton have two coolant sending units? I found the one on the intake and replaced it and still no gauge.


Has CHT - cylinder head temp. sensor . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM sends engine temp info on serial data network to the instrument cluster . I/C has a microprocessor inside . Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not OBD2 codes , B - body codes . The gauge could be the problem , which means replacing the instrument cluster .
Engine coolant temperature information is received by the instrument cluster from the PCM over the SCP network. Temperatures over 121°C (275°F) will display hot (H). If the engine coolant temperature data is missing or invalid for five seconds, the instrument cluster will move the engine coolant temperature gauge below the cold (C) position.
The best way to diagnose this is with a scan tool , factory or a professional type . Know how the system works and not replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose .
U1073 D073 SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Engine Coolant PCM CARRY OUT the PCM self-test.
  • A single gauge does not return to zero with the ignition switch off
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . TEST the system for normal operation.

  • Incorrect temperature gauge indication
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • PCM.
  • Engine coolant temperature sensor.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test F .

I should also point out that if the temp sensor were bad the vehicle may not run right .
Using the factory scan tool
Trigger instrument cluster active command ENGCOOLNT. Monitor the engine coolant temperature gauge while adjusting the ENGCOOLNT active command to read 50% and 100%.
  • Does the temperature gauge start at cold, move to half at 50%, and full hot at 100%?
Yes REFER to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

No INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . REPAIR the circuit. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop !

Temp gauge says hot. anti-freeze is full.no leaking head gasket and motor stays cold after running


Bad step motor in the instrument cluster that controls the temp gauge . The best way to check it would be with a professional type scan tool that can view sensor data parameters . You first need to know how that gauge gets the info to set the correct temp . There is a coolant temp sensor located in a coolant passage on the engine . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM needs this info fuel managment , the PCM also sends this info. to the instrument cluster over the Class 2 data network ! There is a microprocessor inside the I/C that deciphers these message bits an uses the step motor to control the gauge needle ! Aren't computers great ?

This guy says 03 to 06 , i have seen gauge's on earlier models go out too . You could by a used cluster on eBay or at a automotive salvage yard or junk yard , what ever you know them by . $20 buck's at salvage yard , more on eBay .

Looking for wire for heater gage temperature


Depending on the year there isn't any . All done by computer on serial data bus communication network. The coolant temp. is supplied to the engine computer By a ETC - engine coolant temp sensor . All the modules on the vehicle ( ABS , air bags , BCM , instrument cluster , RKE module etc... ) Share info on this data bus network . If the gauge isn't working probably bad ,If a communication network problem the gauge will default to fixed temp degree . This is for a 1999 Buick , out of factory service repair manual . But all vehicles are pretty much the same .
Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) via the class II serial data line to the instrument cluster, broadcasts the coolant temperature. The instrument cluster compares the temperature data using a 16 point look-up table in order to determine the needle deflection. A smooth filter is used in order to secure a continuous response. The instrument cluster drives the temperature gauge to C (cold) under the following conditions:
• The temperature data is lost.
• The PCM is in a state of health fault.

How do I check and replace engine oil sensor.


Knowing how these gauges work , I'd say you have an instrument cluster problem not oil sender unit. 2003 - 2006 GM had bad stepper motors in the instrument cluster . If there was a problem with the oil sender the gauge would default to zero .
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.

?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

If you don't know what class 2 serial data communications are ,google it. How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

Instruments not working on 1997 Jimmy, after replaceing the heater core


Check, you may have a connection to the cluster not fully plugged in. It's got to be at the cluster-the instrument panel.

Gas gauage,temp.& oil gauage quit working..now what


Well you have a car that is worth at best 500 dollars, with a working instrument cluster and gauges it is still worth 500 dollars. How much are you going to spend to fix it? Not much. Look on eBay and craigslist for someone selling a 91 voyager off part by part and buy a replacement cluster for 10 bucks.
Junkyards, aka auto recyclers, also sell old car parts, look in the phone book and call around and ask if they have one of those sitting in their lot. Go buy the part and look around for someone who can replace yours with the one you bought. Would not hurt to buy a 5 dollar CD repair manual on eBay and see how difficult it is to pull the cluster out yourself, could be something is disconnected that you could see and fix yourself. Every part on every car ever made is going to fail due to age or use, yours has already made it 10 years past its design lifetime.

I have a 1999 Plymouth Voyager mini-van - 4 cylinder, 2.4 engine. It drives good but the gauges are not work sometimes. The temperature gauge stays at zero; the odometer/speedometer either stays at zero or...


There have been several issues with the instrument clusters in the Voyagers and Caravans. The circuit board can have cold solders at the plug connection causing an intermittent failure of the instruments. The fix is to remove the trim under the dash, around the steering wheel and in front of the cluster. This can be done with just a phillips screwdriver and some patience. Once this is out of the way there are 4 screws that hold in the cluster. Remove the cluster, and with a low temp solder gun, heat the solder points where the plug connects until they are liquid and reset themselves. Reassemble the cluster and check them before you put the dash assembly back together.

The indicator light that give miliage/temp/ will not come on. 2002 dodge intrepid


Are you trying to say that the light that illuminates the temp gauage and the speedometer gauge don't come on? If so you need to replace the bulbs from behind the instrument cluster. If help needed reply on this post.

There is a recall on the dash cluster for your truck. Check with dealer but don't let them give you the run around.
