SOURCE: 1991 toyota pickup fuel and temp gauges dont work

You might have a bad ground. According to my Haynes manual's wiring diagram, both gauges share the same ground and typically that is "located on the left side of the instrument panel", wherever that is. Sorry I can't be more specific about the location. While it may not be true on your vehicle (the wiring diagram states "typical late model" in its description), my wiring diagram says that the ground wire is Brown (BR). You might try locating that wire and track it to its attachment point. You also might try tapping into it and using a continuity tester and ground out the wire to metal (there's plenty of grounding points under there). Make sure the ignition key is off!! There might be a bad ground wire closer to the meters than the attachment point. Hope this is helpful. Allow plenty of time if you're going to investigate this yourself. Do you have other gauges? Do they work? I think that all of the gauges are ganged through the same fuse (but not through the same ground wire). You might consider checking the fuse to ensure that it's OK. Your owners manual that came with the truck will tell you which fuse is it. If there are other things on the same fuse and they work, it's not the fuse. I hope that this is helpful.

SOURCE: my 1991 mr2 toyota temp gauge dont work i install

Temp Gauge wire may be open circuit. Operation can be checked by Shorting connection to Temp Sender to engine. If the circuit is OK the Gauge should go up to Max.

Guages not working,


If all voltages checked ok,then most probably its faulty instrument cluster board on which gauges are connected.Yes if cluster circuit board looks ok,then also it can be faulty.Somewhere there is minute short or burn on board then such prolem arises.
Also check the fuse box.One under hood and other under dash.Inspect each and every fuse and see if all are fine or not.

How do you fix a code#P0125 on a 1998 toyota 4 runner?insufficient coolent temp. for closed loop control?


first check radiator level if it is full and the heater is working good make sure temp gauge is functioning c orrectly it is most likely the coolant temp sensor but if this is a high milage vehicle and you have owned long time and never changed i would also replace thermostat and check plug to temp sensor forr good conections and good wires

Temp gauge is bouncing up and down on my 99 toyota 4runner.I think its a loose connection but i dont know where the wires are for the gauge. can u help?


Look under the hood. I think it is unlikely to have something loose under the dash, unless some work has been done under there lately. Get a helper to watch the gauge, while you wiggle wires......The wire involved in the temp circuit is small gauge.... push and pull on all wiring that you see, while the helper watched the gauge...

Hi, i have 1999 4runner and my temp gauge is still on the cold position all the time.


There are two differant tempature sensors one is the ECT sensor that is for the computer control system has 3 to 4 wires thats not it there is another sensor that has 1 wire that controls the temp gauge its near the thromostst you most likely have a bad connection from this wire unplug it and clean the problem should go away
