How do I fix my gauges? (Ie, gas gauge, temp gauge, speedometer, odometer)


Fuses? Blown fusible link? Most gauges work by getting 12 volts from the ignition switch when on, and getting a ground from the sender. Often the 12 volt supply wire goes to more than one so if dead, both will fail. If you have a wiring diagram, you might find which wire to cluster should be hot, and trace it backward to find the issue. Easier to check for ignition switch feed first.

Driver side Rear Brake light doesn't light up, Back lights for entire speedometer/gas meter/RPM meter/ Temp. Gauge/ etc is out, Big PORSCHE light in back doesn't work and Right Rear Signal.


You blew the MAIN BUSS Fuse, some people call it a Fusable Link. It is the part that controls the POWER to the CAR from the Alternator/Battery.

More than likely you can not even START the car....

You have to replace the Main Bus Fuse and hopefully everything will come back on.. The Reason I say Hopefully....

You could have also Fried the Main Computer and here is where it gets Expensive.

Computers control everything, Security Features, Engine, Transmission, Radio, (starting to get the picture?)

What you did was feed 12volt Power to EVERYTHING... When you touched the wires together, you put 12Volts into the GROUND system and Everything is connected to the Ground. I mean EVERYTHING....

Hopefully your Fuse did their Job and burned up BEFORE it took out anything else...

Look for the MAIN BUS Fuse and then see what other damage has occurred...

Where is cluster for speedometer lights


The "cluster" means all of the things you see under the plastic cover in front of the driver, the 'gauges'. The term is a reference to the 'instrument cluster' including speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, idiot lights, temperature gauge, everything.
Get a second independent opinion since this is very unusual. Most likely you have a blown fuse.

Honda Pilot 2004 Car battery died because we left the lights on. Jumped battery. Works great but NOW the fuel gauge and hot/cold gauge is not registering. The fuel gauge needle just stays past Empty and...


Check fuse No. 9 (10A) in the driver's side kick panel fuse box. But if your other gauges are working (speedometer, tachometer, low oil light, etc.) then it is possible that when you jumped the battery you inadvertently reversed the cables and created a reverse voltage. This will impact some of the vehicle electronics. If you feel this might be the case, you should test the cooling system temperature sender to see if it failed. If it did, you should suspect that the fuel gauge drive circuit located in the instrument cluster is also failed.

Everthing on my dash (speedometer,odometer,fuel


Blown Fuse or fried Circuit board. Take to a local AutoZone, Advance, Murray's, O'reillys or a similar part house for them to check the wiring. I'm assuming the van does not use a mechanical Speedometer or Fuel Gauge.

On the plus side, with no speedometer, your indicated odometer mileage does not increase. Just keep your speed down and your tank full. Kidding, just kidding.
