My brake light on dash comes on, all the odometer readings stop working and the gas gage goes down and the gas light comes on and the air stops working. What is wrong? it does this only sometimes then


You have an unusual electrical problem. There could be a loose ground wire from the dash gauges or a power wire intermittently opening. It may be cut or resting on a sharp metal part under the dash. It will take someone who looks past the obvious to locate the exact place where the problem lies.

Hi the gauge is controlled by a 9v power supply fitted to the dash control board this is were the speedo etc is fitted. if for any reason the power supply goes funny the fuel gauge will go wrong. there are 2 capacitors in the main board these keep the volts steady. when they were out you need to change them. as for losing info with the dash out this will not happen gauges work on power no memory same for speedo electronic milometer is a chip controlled so it store last miles. with power off for years. other problems that can make the fuel gauge go wrong is the cluster connection or the signal wires from the tank. a weak earth or a feed wire connection in the wire loom in the side of the wall that all the wiring goes to-to get to the back and the front of the car. hope this helps you with your problem

My temperature gauge,Tachometer,Speedo,Fuel Tank on my 2003 Opel Astra 1.6 16v Elegance doesn't work intermittantly


connection on the back of the dash needs cleaning if you push on the dash and it all works then this is the fault. sometimes hitting it works just fine for awhile but not to hard.

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.

The dash lights went out on my 2000 Buick Lesabre Custom. It doesn't have the heads up display or remote locks, though they are power. All the other lights work fine, the computer displays work, and when...


Sounds like you have some confusion going on here.
The dash lights and tail lights have always been on different circuits and fuses. So if one set of lights fail, the other stays on unless the headlight switch blows up.
The fuse marked "instruments" is for the speedo and gas gauge, not the lights.
On your car there is an instrument panel module and a dash integraded module which both involve the dash lights.
You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures for this circuit.
Another thing - after 1998 most cars and trucks switched from having the headlight switch provide power to having them provide the ground connection.

89 VETTE. ALL GAUGES IN DASH NOT WORKING . THE DASH LIGHTS DO WORK . RADIO HAS NO SOUND . INTENA DOES GO UP AND DOWN . SPEDO GAUGE NOT WORKING , FUEL GAUGE NOT WORKING , TACK NOT ...


Do you know that all this stuff was working when it was parked? Lets assume it was. Most of this stuff works with the key on or in the acc. position. You are going to need something to check for voltage. At least a test light better yet, multimeter. The dash lights however, come off the headlight switch. Start by checking for power at the fuse for the gauges it's marked "inst" for instruments it protects all the gauges including the tach and speedo. With the key on you should have power on both sides of the fuse. The antenna won't come up until you get the radio to come on. If you have power at the fuse, Your going to have to start taking the dash apart to see where the "open" in the circuit. If you have no power at the fuse, it comes from the ignition switch, it's down low on the steering column. ( I hope you're skinny)

As for the brakes, since it's been sitting that long I would be pulling the wheels off and looking for a seized caliper.

If your going to do your on work on this car I recommend investing in a good manual, try to find a factory book on ebay. or Craig's list.

This is a way cool car, have fun with it!!!

Speedo unit died then Fuel gauge went to max


the dash control board is the controler for the boards in the dash, fuel temp etc. inside the dash itself, a board on the rev counter controls voltage to feed the the fuel gauge etc. the back of the speedo burnt,there is the 3 pin voltage control chip on the board. you can replace the boards. you can remove them from another dash and place them into yours but if you say the board burnt out on the speedo . then i would just change the dash as it would be easier as you would need to replace the speedo as well. you will also need to inform dvla that the speedo has been changed as for mots its recorded. or have the speedo rectified to the right mileage. not informing dvla can affect your insurance.
