This missing instrument cluster, which is sometimes accompanied by a clicking relay from under the hood, is often a cause of a dirty battery connection. Remove your battery connection and clean the terminals and try again.
Always remove the negative first and reconnect it last.

2003 sentra Nissan. Trouble starting, engine has died while I was driving, it did start back up. Today speedometer, engine temp,etc showed nothing? Battery is 5 months old? What could be wrong?


Nothing working on the instrument cluster ? Shouldn't be a battery problem with being only five months old. Turn on the headlamps , do they shine bright ? Does the check engine light come on when you turn the key to the on position ? Do all warning lights come on with the key on , then some go off after a few seconds ? Checking for diagnostic trouble codes in the instrument cluster would be a good thing to do also . The Instrument cluster could be the problem .

Replacing a fuse engine wont start 2005 hummer h2


Is the anti-theft light lit on the instrument cluster ? Won't start how ? When you turn the key to start , what happens ? Nothing ? This would be a No crank - no start condition . Now if you turn the key to start and the starter engages and spins the engine and it doesn't start an run , this is a engine cranks no start condition ! Now which is your problem ?

There are two fuse's IGN A fuse 40amp and IGN E fuse 10amp ,both are located in the under hood fuse/relay box . Also there is starter relay located in the same under hood fuse /relay box . There also is a crank fuse 10amp in the under hood fuse box . Besides the fuse's and relay ,the ignition switch or the PNP - park neutral position switch could be bad . Testing the whole starter circuit should be done ! How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

Citroen xantia electrics are shorting out


If it's an automatic, check if the lever is at P or N. Check if your car has immobilizer that needs you to enter codes before it will start. Gauges moving full scale usually indicates that the instruments cluster is 'missing' an additional IGN supply. When you turn your key to the ON position, all lights in the cluster will light up. This position will make the ignition switch supply 2 IGN power to most electrical systems. If one is missing, the car may not start. Check all fuses under the fascia and in the engine bay. Be on the look out for fuses that have melted 'seats'. They may give intermittent power. Xantia's fuse slots gets melted with age, so the fuse becomes loose and supply gets disconnected.

Toyota tundra 2007 cranks but wont start. no instrument lights come on when key is turned on


Could be a problem with the key switch or a main fuse.
I would check for power at the fuse for the cluster then the key switch circuits.

NO START


This problem can be three things. The ignition switch is a good place to start but its under a recall and you should not spend any money on this repair. The passlock system next to ignition switch should probably be changed at the same time and is also under a recall. The instrument cluster is the most probable in your case. The reason i say that is because the key is the headlights not turning on you may also have some lights on the instrument cluster flickering on and off at weird times.The speedometer or other gauges are probably not working all the time. if you are handy you can remove the cluster and send it out for repair. The tech who repairs this might even tell you that the instrument cluster has nothing to do with non start issue but it does. the passlock anti theft reads the ignition key when you insert it into ignition cylinder. Once you turn the key the ignition sends a signal through the instrument cluster to the pcm. the pcm will allow the car to start if the correct signal is recieved. If the pcm recieves no signal it allows the car to start for a second and then kills the car.
