All the warning lights work but the gauges ,revcounter and speedo dont work all the fuses are working


Year/make/model??? Try slapping on the top of the dash area to see if it starts working again. If so, suspect an internal instrument cluster problem. Known problems for GMC

Our 99 Cadillac Sevilles instrument panel is burnt out... Is this a fuse?... Or something major?


There should be a fuse for the gauges if that is what is not working. When you say burnt out.... do you mean nothing is functioning or there is no back lighting. If you are reffering to back lighting, the dash lights work in series with the park lights. Check for park lights working on the vehicle. If no park light, check fuses. If nothing working, try slapping on top of the dash area above the instrument panel to see if it starts working again

When I turn on my headlights the dash board goes black. The dimmer switch is not the issue


The dash lights are connected to the park lights. Check to see if the park lights come on. If no park lights, suspect a fuse or wiring issue. If park lights are ok, try slapping your hand on the dash area above the instrument panel to see if the lights come on/flicker. If there is a change, the instrument cluster assembly/electronics are the most likely cause of this problem

2005 explorer sport trac instrument cluster and odometer intermittent failure?


Pull the instrument cluster out of the dash check all the connectors to it for loose pins and also take a look at the printed circuit on the back of the panel, look for any obvious problems. More than likely just pulling the connectors and reinserting them several times may cure this problem.

I have 2000 jeep wrangler with a 2.5 engine and 5 speed. sometimes when i am driving down the road my instruments will all drop to 0. Tach, speed, everything. Any ideas?


Here's a really high tech test...Slap the top of the dash with your hand when dash goes out...if everything comes back on, remove the dash gauge panel and clean the contacts in both plugs. sometimes slightly bending them will help make better contact.

Blower motor does not operate right


This could also be a loose/poor connection from the control unit. I have had a similar issue. I know it is not thermal overload because sometimes the blower just doesn't come on when you start the car. A slap to the top of the dash board over the temperatures controls has got it going again.
