Nissan Pathfinder with gauge glitches

I've got a 98 Nissan Pathfinder that has intermittent gauge problems. It is usually a combination of Fuel (full), Speedodometer (0-20), Odometer (999,999), Tach (flutters), and Temp (H) gauge. On occasion it is just one or two gauges. We've found that sometimes restarting will correct the issue. However, none of the gauge glitches affect performance. Any ideas?

SOURCE: 2001 Nissan Altima - Instrument panels gauges stop working

I'm going to offer you real good advice, obviously your not a technician, this job is not for your weekend mechanic, diagnostics is the key to your electrical problem, you need to know about using a DVOM so you can find where the short is, I've seen this problem before in a nissan, it turned out after chasing wires for 5 hours that a key wire in back of the fuse box was loose, causing an intermitent vehicle stalling and shutting down-horrible problem to have I know. FIX??? Yeah you can get a manual and look up the wiring schematics for your vehicle, then perform an ohms test on every wire that could possibly effect your problem, check your computer, see if it smells internally like electrical burning, But I recomend a trained mechanic- job cost?? well the problem is we dont know how many hours its gonna take to find that short, then how to repair the problem is another problem, this can be a costly repair, or it could be very simple unless I was actually on the vehicle I could give you an exact price, pick a mechanic thats trust worthy and known hope it helps

SOURCE: 2001 Nissan Altima - Instrument panels gauges stop working

My 2001 Altima's instrument gauges die out after high-speed driving for 40-50 miles. Engen also loses power. Everything is back to normal when the car cools down. It turned out the ingition relay was bad. I could duplicate the problem right away by removing the relay. Actually, it is very easy to find the relay which is located above the fuse panel. The ignition relay is the bottom left one among the five relays there. It costs only $20.

SOURCE: I have a 92 Nissan pathfinder manual 4x4. Where

All Nissan have the fuel pump relay near de ECU. But you must hear when starting working, and falow the click. The ECU is mounted under the pasanger seat.
About the Gauges, in the circuit of the front panel, it have a transistor that suply more or less 8volts to the gauges (gas and temp). Is possibly broken. You must replace it. But first, clean it with a contact cleaner; if the problem continue, replace it. Good Luck.

98 pathfinder has intermittent spark issue. start and drive for an hour+-, quits, at slow speed -25mph. sits for 30 min, then restarts and drive.replaced ignition coil, no help. waiting on ignition control...


Was there only one ignition coil to be replaced or did you replace all of them? How do you know its due to intermittent spark and not a fuel delivery issue? The ignition control module is a good next step if you have changed all of the coils and confirmed it is not a fuel issue.

Fuel air mixture too rich on a 98 nissan pathfinder


My guess would be a fuel injector or fuel pressure regulator problem, or a Mass air flow sensor.
The O2 sensor does not come into play until the engine has run for a couple of minutes.
Is the check engine light on ?

I ve nissan pathfinder 2005 model, service engine soon light on. we used a consul and got fault code PO463 fuel level sensor high input. right now car will not start. advice


failure rate of these sensors is very high .nissan extended the warranty period on these rather than issuing a recall.contact local dealer replacement would almost certainly be under warranty.as for no start there is currently a campaign to replace ecm relays for this issue but since obviously your fuel gauge isnt accurate you may just be out of gas.

I have a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder. 3.0 Manual Transmission with an intermittant starting glitch. Starter/solonoid and ignition switch have both been replaced with no effect. I cannot seem to find the clutch...


The Clutch/Starter relay has a Blue Top and is located on the right inner fender near two other relays. It has quite large wires (12Ga.) and is often the culprit.

The gas gauge is not registering when gas is put in the van


I don`t know this particular car but I don`t think the dissy has anything to do with the fuel gauge. Did the fuel gauge work perfectly before?? If so, you`ll probably find that you`ve disturbed a connector which goes to the sender unit. It`s very easy to do, I`ve done it myself and it`s VERY annoying to find you`ve sorted one fault only to find that you`ve caused another fault. Just go over everything that you`ve touched and done to the car. Did you short something out when you were replacing the cap, if so, you`ll probably find that a fuse has failed and it`s not just the gauge that doesn`t work. All the best, Ian

98 Nissan Pathfinder with gauge glitches


Its very common on a lot of cars, the instrument cluster has a number of connectors soldered onto the circuit board, the solder joints get loose or are bad to begin with and you will get these kinds of intermittent display issues. They are a pain to fix because the entire cluster has to be removed, just to solder the joints! The soldering is the easy part, re/re of the unit is the real pain. If you go through the trouble make sure you also inspect every solder joint on the board while its out..you don't want to do it a second time!
