The only way is to buy the manual for the truck, or take off the main pannel and have a look yourself and write them on a bit of paper
This is simple to do.

SOURCE: 1989 Ford F150 Instrument Cluster Problem

Some of the gauges are on the same fuse as the dome light; check the fuses. The other main source of gauge problems for this vintage F150 is the sending units and I don't use the term sending unit lightly, so when you go to the parts store make sure you say you are looking for sending units not sensors (sensors hook to the computer) sending units are of 2 types for this vintage F150, lights and guages you need the ones for gauges, the oil sending unit is about 4 dollars and the coolant temp sending unit for a guage is about the same.

I have 4 fords and you will come to understand that the wiring is a jury rig, all this come out when they are the age of your 1989 PU.

If everything keeps going like that then it sounds like its a problem with the onboard computer. The computer controls all the guages and would explain why they all fail at the same time.

SOURCE: Install aftermarket tachometer

I'll take a stab at this, there's better than a 50-50 chance, and you can do no damage if the first try is wrong. Red is +12 volts and Black is chassis ground. that's a given. I would try Blue to coil pack "Tach" terminal, and Green for the dashlight. If I am right about the Blue and Green, a 9-volt battery from Green to Black will light the light if it's not burned out. If the Green doesn't light it, try the Blue, but my bets on the Green. If the Blue doesn't light it either, the bulb is toast.

My guages stoped working and transmition seems to be slipping in my 2001 shevy silverado 4.8


Well ronnie do you know how to do automotive electrical testing with a volt meter ? How to read an understand a wiring diagram ? Would think not to be a relay problem because other thing's would not work as well ! More then likely a loose ground or something on that order ! Plus you must mean Ignition . 1 relay , because there isn't a eng.1 relay . Ign. 1 relay powers the PCM - engine computer , fuel injectors , the TAC - electronic throttle control module . Do the instrument cluster lights still work when the gauges quit ? Looking at power distribution diagram I see a engine 1 fuse but has nothing to do with the instrument cluster . Supply's B+ voltage to the maf sensor , EVAP system , CAM sensor , IAT sensor , fuel pump relay ! Could be a communication problem on class 2 data bus . All the modules on the vehicle share information on the class 2 bus . The gauges get thier info from the PCM over this data network !
Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge
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 gauge defaults to 75°C (160°F) or below when:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communication with the PCM.

Fuel Gauge
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 gauge 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 a pre-determined value, the low fuel indicator illuminates.
Reviewing the fuel system description will further explain how the system functions. Refer to:

Speedometer
The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the vehicle speed signal from the PCM. The IPC receives the vehicle speed signal via a discreet wire. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit (4000 pulses/mile) 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 (4000 pulses/mile) exists.

Tachometer
The IPC displays the engine speed based on the engine speed signal from the PCM. The IPC receives the engine speed signal from the PCM via a discreet wire. The IPC uses the engine speed signal circuit (2 pulses/engine revolution) 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 (2 pulses/engine revolution) exists.
Transmission Temperature Gauge
The IPC displays the transmission temperature as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the transmission temperature. The transmission temperature gauge will default to 40°C (100°F) or below if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission temperature sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.
Voltmeter
The IPC displays the system voltage as detected at the ignition 1 input of the IPC. When the engine is ON, the gauge should be between 10 and 16 volts.

The only one that has a hard wired sensor is the oil pressure gauge.
Engine Oil Pressure Gauge
The IPC uses the engine oil sensor signal to determine the engine oil pressure. The oil pressure sensor signal circuit is hard-wired to the IPC. The engine oil pressure sensor signal to the IPC is a variable resistance ranging from 0-90 ohms. A sensor resistance of 1 ohms will display as 0 psi (0 kPa) and a resistance of 88 ohms will display as 80 psi (550 kPa). The Check Engine Oil Pressure indicator will be displayed in the message center if the IPC detects a low engine oil pressure.

Does this one drop out also ? quit working

I would suggest that you take an have the IPC checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , NOT OBD 2 engine codes , these are different an need a professional type scan tool .
You could check G103 for being loose . G103
On the left rear of the engine block . Also pull the instrument cluster out an check connection at the back of IPC . Check power an ground circuits at the PCM as well . You can fine wiring diagrams here
http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter the vehicle info . year , make , model an engine . under system click body an acc. then under subsystem click on instrumentation .Click the search button , then click the blue link . At the top of the diagram it shows B+ power supply , The connectors on the back of IPC , A,B , plus the pin # an color wire .

I have a 2010 Chevy impala LS instrument cluster and it has a 20 pin plug I'm trying to figure out which wire's on the back of the cluster are for the speed sensor, rpm, gas, and temp wires.


Boy your way off base . All the gauges are inputs from the ECM - engine computer . The VSS - vehicle speed sensor , ETC - engine coolant temp sensor , sending unit in the fuel tank , All this sensors input the engine computer . The PCM then sends this info on the GMLAN serial data bus ,communications network . The Instrument cluster has a microprocessor inside that translates this info an controls the gauges. You probably have an instrument cluster problem or a communication network problem . Your best bet is to take your vehicle to the dealer or some other qualified repair shop. Need to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes.

What wire go where for temperature gauge on a 1998 Buick park avenue


Sir ,what are you trying to do ? Your Temp gauge isn't working ? Before you attempt to fix something you need to know how it works. What wire are you talking about ? Coolant Temperature
The PCM sends engine coolant temperature data to the instrument cluster through the class 2 serial data line. The instrument cluster uses a look up table in order to determine needle deflection. The instrument cluster uses a smoothing filter in order to secure a continuous response.
The coolant temp. sensor is an input to the engine computer .

1997 pontiac grand prix 3800, when i plug in the temp sensor the fuel and temp guage max's out? why


Could be a shorted sensor , have you replaced it ? Shorted wiring , A problem with in the instrument cluster . Would need to do some testing to find out what causes this . I would tell you to check power an ground of both circuits involved ,could you do that ? You would need pin out charts of the connectors that go to the instrument cluster . find the wire for coolant sensor , then find that same wire color at the coolant sensor an with ohm meter check to see if wires are shorted to ground etc...

The engine coolant temperature is operated by two coils. The battery voltage is applied to both of the coils. One of the coils is grounded directly and the other coil is grounded through the engine coolant temperature sender. The engine coolant temperature sender has a resistance of 44 ohms at 125?° C (260?° F). The resistance increases at lower temperatures. The resistance is approximately 1365 ohms at 37?° C (100?° F), causing the current through the engine coolant temperature sender at one of the coils to increase, as the coolant temperature decreases and moves the pointer.
Fuel Gauge
The magnetic fields of the two coils moves the fuel gauge pointer. The two coils are at right angles to each other. The battery voltage is applied to the E coil and the circuit divides at the opposite end of the E coil. One voltage path continues to ground through the F coil, as the other goes to ground through the variable resistor of the fuel level sender.
The resistance of the fuel level sender is low when the fuel tank is low. A large flow of current passes through the E coil and the fuel level sender resistor. The current pulls the pointer towards the E on the scale.
The fuel level resistance is high when the fuel tank is full. The increased current flowing though the F coil moves the pointer to the F on the scale. With the two coils operating the pointer, the fuel gauge is not affected by the any changes in the voltage of the system.
Without being able to test the electrical circuits , I would say there is a problem inside the instrument cluster. You could take it out an have it tested or you could get a used one from a auto salvage yard for $15.00 an see if the problem goes away .

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine temg gauge not working


If you changed the coolant temperature sensor and it had a 5 volt ref signal to it then you replaced the wrong part. You need to replace the coolant temperature sending unit.  The coolant temp "sensor" is an input to the ECM for your fuel injection system. The coolant temp "sending unit" is for coolant temp reading at the gauge, It is an NTC switch (negative temperature coefficient) which means as temp increases/resistance decreases.
