Computer failed, or the connector has come out of the speedo head.

you have to replace the bottom board on your dash panel a new part runs about 300$

and repaired one with a lifetime warranty is about 60$

Speedo unit died then Fuel gauge went to max


the dash control board is the controler for the boards in the dash, fuel temp etc. inside the dash itself, a board on the rev counter controls voltage to feed the the fuel gauge etc. the back of the speedo burnt,there is the 3 pin voltage control chip on the board. you can replace the boards. you can remove them from another dash and place them into yours but if you say the board burnt out on the speedo . then i would just change the dash as it would be easier as you would need to replace the speedo as well. you will also need to inform dvla that the speedo has been changed as for mots its recorded. or have the speedo rectified to the right mileage. not informing dvla can affect your insurance.

Speedometer doesn't work in my 98 Mits Galant and only warm air.


Well the speedo problem could well be behind the actual speedo gauge. Theres a long square shapped plastic piece on the end of the cable the fits in to the back of the gauge, as it turns it makes the hand on the dial read the speed, In most cases the plastic bit breaks away from the cable which will make the speedo read zero.You will have to get another speedo cable and replace it the same route as your original one.You have to take off the dash surround to get the gauge cluster out for a start to see if its broken at that end.

First thing i would check is every ground source I could find . Ground connections at battery, fuse blocks etc. & also check to see if you can find any ground straps running from engine to firewall under hood, or frame to firewall, and make sure all are clean& in good shape, making good contact, and tight.

Speed-o-meter and RPM gauge do not work


if the engine is running fine and no limp mode no engine lights. abs is working then the only other thing could be the dash may need replacing as putting the battery on wrong can blow the electronics in the dash as they are both linked. i ask is there any other problems as the rev counter work to ecu in line with speedo and the abs unit to determine timing etc. speedo works of the abs system the connection between them both is the board in the dash board. you can replace the boards in the dash but you will need replacement dash parts to do this but remember if you change the dash you need to log the miles as new dash will have different miles and uk mot log your miles to dvla. USA i dont know you would need to look into this.

The gauges have stopped working ? Fuse under dash seems to be OK ?


Behind the dash is what they call a constant voltage regulator. It controls the guages. It's small and located behind the dash near speedo.
