You need to have a scanner hooked up to read the system for faults, this is a special tool. All the items you mentioned are computer module controlled.

    Three different areas to look at YADA. Care how to explain how to do it?

    The are all networked together, you need a factory scanner or a high end aftermarket tool like a Snap-On or MAC tools makes to read the system info and spot problems like these. I know this because I am a Ford and GM factory certified electronic diagnostic technician. All modern vehicles from about the mid to late 1990's use this networking of electronic modules. The all talk to each other through a twisted wire communication network. Thanks for asking.

Gas gauge doesnt work


Yes the gauges are on a fuse marked gauges.
I think that fuse is in the interior box, could be in the glove compartment, under the instrument panel, or on either end of the dash where the door closes. Your owner's manual should help you there.

After changing fuel pump the gas guage dont work


Then you bought or were given the wrong pump

Did that not occur to you?

That is probably why you have no gas gauge

Speedometer quit, Drive 4 light started flashing, check engine light now on, slight power loss when accelerating


check your wheel speed sensors. and vehicle speed sensor on the transmission

drive 4 uses it to sense slip in the front/rear wheels.

check engine light on because it needs to know vehicle speed to shift properly.

no speedometer because it turns the voltage into a signal to the gauge

All of a sudden my speedometer and my gas gauge quit working


If it would of been only your speedometer I would of tell you to replace your speed sensor. But in this case you gas gauge stopped working as well so I would recommend taking your whole cluster to a mechanic he will try to fix those two items, otherwise you will need to replace the whole cluster, same thing happened to me. Good luck

Toyota rav 4


I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:

The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.

There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.
