All of my gages- fuel, speedometer not working

All of my gages- fuel, tachometer, temp, and speedometer stopped working. Other lights, like gear shift indicator light, work OK. "Maintenance Required" light is on.

    This morning everything is working- did not change anything. Is there a wire that could be loose?

My mph, gas, and temp gauges are not working


That's why you don't let you husband work on your car ! Unless he does it for a living .. For MPH there is a VSS - vehicle speed sensor , for the gas there is a sending unit in the fuel tank, for the temp. gauge there is a temp. sensor located in coolant stream on the engine .You more then likely need to have you instrument cluster repaired . GM had a problem with step motors inside the instrument cluster . A step motor is what controls the individual gauge. The sensors are all inputs to the PCM - powertrain control module (engine computer ) .
Engine Coolant Temperature Gage
The IPC displays the engine coolant temperature as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine coolant temperature. The engine coolant temperature gage defaults to C or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.


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

Fuel Gage
The IPC displays the fuel level as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the fuel level percent. The fuel gage defaults to empty if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit.


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

When the fuel level is less than 14% (84ohms), the low fuel indicator illuminates.
Odometer
The IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. Momentarily press the trip select/reset switch in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip select/reset switch for greater than 1.5 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer. The IPC displays the vehicle mileage and trip mileage as determined by the IPC. The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed information from the PCM. The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected.
PRNDL Display
The IPC displays the selected gear position as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display shall flash all gear positions if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.


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

Speedometer
The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses per mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 mph (0 kph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit exists.
Tachometer
The IPC displays the engine speed as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine speed. The tachometer will default to 0 rpm if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine speed sensor circuit.


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

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic. My Tachometer, Fuel Gage, and Speedometer quit working a few months ago. The Oil pressure,and Temperature gages work fine. All fuses are fine. I suspect a grounging...


have you tried working on one problem at a time?
have you check the body computer for any codes?
and to also verify the bus line is ok.
if you find nothing wrong with BCM or bus,
try checking the speed sensor for an output signal or if the gear is bad.

I can start my car and all my gages work fine. speedometer,RPM,s ,Fuel, and temp. I can turn on my lights or heater and the gages start jumping all over. The indicator lights and shift indicator lights...


This problem drove me crazy for 2 weeks. Then the car just stopped running. It would turn over but it would not fire. I replaced the crank and camshaft sensors. That did nothing. I replaced the ignition switch and the car started right up. So if your dash indicator lights start doing a light show for you and your gages jump around or just stop working. Try replacing the ignition switch.

Speedometer stopped workin and transmission wont shift out of first


The tachometer acts as the trigger for auto shifting the gears. Since the speedometer has conked out, it will assume your car speed to be in that range and therefore not shifting up as usual. Replace the speedometer and after doing that check the response on their computerized diagnostics to check the correct response is read by the chip which triggers the gear change.........................sodeep

Gauges don't work, Fuse panel is a pain to get at


I have a '97 Chevy 1500 with an automatic trans. This morning i started it up and the speedometer and tachometer needles sit at zero. Also the gear selector fails to light up. Upon accelerating from a stop, it starts in third gear. I can manually downshift to second but not to first. It will not upshift automatically. Only manually. Also, it will not shift into overdrive when up to speed. The check gauges light comes on but only intermittently.
Additionally, the service engine light came on however I suspect that this is a separate problem as the 262 engine does not run well on this horrible new 10% ethanol fuel and it makes it throw an O2 sensor code. Does anybody have a clue here? I changed the 10amp fuse for the gauges but it hasn't fixed the issue. I didn't think it would resolve it because the rest of the instrument panel works (oil pressure, temp, voltage, fuel). Please, any advice.

ANTI-LOCK AND PARKING BRAKE LIGHT


Any code's stored in the ABS ? The VSS - vehicle speed sensor is an input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM sends this info. on the class 2 serial data network to the instrument cluster . The Instrument cluster has a microprocessor that deciphers all relevant data , speedometer , tach , fuel level , temp. etc... an through the use of stepper motors controls the gauges . Do you know what a module serial data network is ? Do you know what computer controlled systems on a automobile are ? The ABS - anti lock brakes need speed info. also , as does the transmission for shifting point's . The parking brake light is more then just to let you know the parking brake is set . ABS problems , low fluid level in the master cylinder will also turn on this light . Having the vehicle hooked up to a professional type scanner should be the first step in the diagnostic process . Check DTC'S , view sensor data parameters .

Engine Coolant Temperature Gage
The IPC displays the engine coolant temperature as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine coolant temperature. The engine coolant temperature gage defaults to 100°F (40°C) or below if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

PRNDL Display
The IPC displays the selected gear position as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL displays blank if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.
• The IPC receives a class 2 message indicating the park position and the column park switch indicates a position other than park such as an open input.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.
Speedometer
The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses/mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 km/h (0 mph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed signal circuit exists.

Tachometer
The IPC displays the engine speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the engine speed sensor to a 2 pulses/engine revolution signal. The IPC uses the engine speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the engine speed. The tachometer defaults to 0 rpm if a malfunction in the engine speed signal circuit exists.

You could have any one of a number of different thing's causing your problem . Hooking up a scanner probably would point to the gremlin .
