Need to know mileage and what year explorer is...Is it an electronic odometer..?..It is relatively easy to remove cluster to gain access to the component you want to inspect ..It may be wise to take to a Ford dealership to have it scanned..They can tell you the reason it is inoperable...Then you can get a complete cluster from eBay cheap if needed...However if it is gear driven by cable from trans it could be a stripped pin that fits inside end of cable where it is mounted to the trans,a broken cable internally or in a lot of cases I have seen cable vibrate loose from the back of odometer behind instrument cluster and also vibrate loose where it connects to trans...If it is gear driven check areas that I have described...Hope this helps...send more info if you can.....If not Good luck..Thanks ofof

Instument pannel keeps going out speedo rev counter fuel gauge


The cluster is really a computer module, so what needs is first make sure the signal for this gages are reaching the cluster if they are then the cluster needs repair, if not you may have a defective fuel level sensor and a problem with the vehicle speed sensor. Flip a coin, the sensor issues will be the most costly as the fuel tank must come out for replacement of the level sensor, that runs many hours of labor.

Why is my 07 Mitsubishi triton speedo not working?


check the signal at the sensor with a multimeter. Most have three wires, one is a 12volt feed, one is a ground and the third is the signal wire. This wire is usually only 5volts and is grounded and ungrounded by the sensor in precise timing intervals as the sensor rotates. This means that to check its operation, make sure it has the 12volt feed and the ground, then, Jack up one rear wheel and chock the rest. Select neutral and release the parking brake.
Turn the ignition on BUT DONT START THE ENGINE. Reconnect ALL the wires to the sensor and then backprobe the signal wire you found earlier with a multimeter. Once you have the wire probed, slowly rotate the wheel by hand. The meter should show the 5 volt drop to nothing, then back to 5volts, then nothing, then 5volts and on and on as long as you rotate the wheel. If this 5volt is not present, check the instrument cluster as this 5volts comes from the speedo head. If the 12 volts is not present, check all fuses WITH A TEST PROBE - looking at the fuse is not enough and check the wiring to the sensor. If the ground is missing, check the earth point on the chassis under the rear of the cab and under the bonnet and repair and issues found.If all these tests show good and you have the alternating 5volt voltage, check the same signal wire at the cluster, if it still alternates when you turn the wheel by hand, repair the speedo head. If the 5volt signal feed from the speedo head is missing, check the wiring to the speedo head, if the signal is not present at the speedo head, repair the speedo head.

Speedo not working


the cable has snapped
or the gear drive at bottom end bad or fell loose?
the top end of cable fell off.
usually the speedo head is good if both odometer and speedo fail at same time (its 2 differnent meters in sided cluster)

Won't turn over. The instrument cluster won't work


ok iif the instrument cluster does not work.. before i give a solution can you tell me if it have atach and temp gage not a temp gage witha idiot light but a actual temp gage.. because if temp gage and fule gage hands are not in their proper place like if yo uhave a 1/4 tank of gas and it reads way past full and the temp gage is gone out of site way past say 240 degrees then it is your speedo head .. have this trouble the other day on a chevy 2002 cavalier.. replaced the head and wahla the car started. it seems the speedo head is tied in with the computer system on these cars.. and if the tach is not working you need not worry if you cannot find a head with a built in tach.. a normal speedo head with out the tach part will also work.. just when you change the head count the pins on the old one and compare it to the new one if they match then just plug it in and car should start..

I have a 1997 buick le sabre with only 70k original miles... the speedometer works intermitently... now less and less... do I need to replace the whole instrument cluster? or is it a loose wire?? any...


you might want to check the speedo drive gears at the transmission and make sure they are in good shape and the gear that drives the electrical portion is spinning freely as any damage here will cause intermittent speedo operation.also if this is an electrically sent speedo from the tranny check the electrical connections.there is also a speedo buffer in the dash that rarely goes bad but is still a possibility.and lastly it could be the speedometer head thats the problem.when the speedo stops working does the odometer still work.if so then the problem is in the speedo head.i don`t remember which ones or what year they changed them but some you could just replace the speedo head and not the whole cluster assembly.

1997 Ford Mustang Speedo not working


I think that there may be a component inside the instrument cluster that wears out. Call you local ford shop and ask if there is a replacement piece for speedo in cluster. We have a ford junkey that fixes all of our used car one's.
