I have seen this before and found the Dash insert is defective, Go to address 17 and carry out a final control segment test for the dash when the fault occurs also make sure there are no battery management fault codes.

Restriction of functions
The following are deactivated in the event of
active load intervention by the battery and
energy management system:
- Interior lighting
- Sunroof
- Light/humidity sensor
- Interior mirror

Check you ambient in car lighting settings in the mmi user functions for current settings

Park brake uses 58d terminal and the rest use 58s terminal from memory

THESE ARE POSSIBLE CAUSES TO YOUR PROBLEM. CLASS 2 CIRCUIT IS OPEN SHORTED TO GROUND OR TO B+. THE PCM IGNITION POWER CIRCUITS HAS A HIGH RESISTANCE CONDITION. THE PCM MAIN GROUND CIRCUITS HAS A HIGH RESISTANCE CONDITION. THE SDM MODULE COULD BE SHORTED PULLING THE VOLTAGE LOW. THIS MORE LIKELY DEALERSHIP FIX.

Does the 98 Ford F-150 5.4 triton have two coolant sending units? I found the one on the intake and replaced it and still no gauge.


Has CHT - cylinder head temp. sensor . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM sends engine temp info on serial data network to the instrument cluster . I/C has a microprocessor inside . Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not OBD2 codes , B - body codes . The gauge could be the problem , which means replacing the instrument cluster .
Engine coolant temperature information is received by the instrument cluster from the PCM over the SCP network. Temperatures over 121°C (275°F) will display hot (H). If the engine coolant temperature data is missing or invalid for five seconds, the instrument cluster will move the engine coolant temperature gauge below the cold (C) position.
The best way to diagnose this is with a scan tool , factory or a professional type . Know how the system works and not replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose .
U1073 D073 SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Engine Coolant PCM CARRY OUT the PCM self-test.
  • A single gauge does not return to zero with the ignition switch off
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . TEST the system for normal operation.

  • Incorrect temperature gauge indication
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • PCM.
  • Engine coolant temperature sensor.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test F .

I should also point out that if the temp sensor were bad the vehicle may not run right .
Using the factory scan tool
Trigger instrument cluster active command ENGCOOLNT. Monitor the engine coolant temperature gauge while adjusting the ENGCOOLNT active command to read 50% and 100%.
  • Does the temperature gauge start at cold, move to half at 50%, and full hot at 100%?
Yes REFER to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

No INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . REPAIR the circuit. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop !

GM instrument clusters 2003 - 2006 had problems with gauge stepper motors . Having the vehicle hooked up to a professional grade or factory scan tool that can view this kind of data would be necessary ! This information comes from the PCM/ECM - engine computer over the class 2 serial data bus or network communications .

My speedometer works but my digital odometer does not work on my 2003 old alero


This is one guy's advice: Replace the speedo head, that should take care of the problem."

This site is also interesting because the guy said
General Motors cars had instrument cluster problems from 2003 through 2006. When I researched instrument cluster problems on the Internet what I found raised concerns in me. Many of those vehicles had problems that began with the instrument cluster, but eventually led to the engine refusing to start.
(an electronic instrument cluster, digital instrument panel or digital dash for short, is a set of instrumentation, including the speedometer, that is displayed with a digital readout rather than with the traditional analog gauges. Many refer to it simply as a digital speedometer.)

How do I check and replace engine oil sensor.


Knowing how these gauges work , I'd say you have an instrument cluster problem not oil sender unit. 2003 - 2006 GM had bad stepper motors in the instrument cluster . If there was a problem with the oil sender the gauge would default to zero .
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.

?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

If you don't know what class 2 serial data communications are ,google it. How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

You need the sensors of those functions, which you don't have installed. I would go back to the correct part.

MAKE SURE COOLANT NOT LOW.IF ALL IS GOOD.THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO FIX SOUND LIKE PROBLEMS IN THE AUXILIARY HVAC CONTROL MODULE.IT CONTROLS THE HEATER AND AIR DOORS ACTUATOR.THAT COULD BE WHY YOU ARE NOT GETTING HEAT. YOU HAVE A FAULTY CLUSTER IF YOU HAVING SPEEDOMETER AND FUEL GAUGE PROBLEMS.BUT CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE IT SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS WITH ENGINE OFF.13.5 VOLTS TO 14.5 VOLTS WITH ENGINE RUNNING.I HAVE SEEN A BAD AND WEAK BATTERY CAUSE DASH GAUGE PROBLEMS AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO COME ON.IF CAR FAILS THE VOLTS TEST.IF YOU USE A DIGITAL VOLT METER BATTERY WAS NOT 12.5 VOLTS.YOU NEED TO HAVE THE ALTERNATOR AND BATTERY TESTED.YOU CAN GO TO ADVANCE AUTO OR AUTO ZONE.AND SEARS THEY WILL CHECK TO MAKE SURE BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR IS WORKING.THEY WILL DO IT FOR FREE.

Gauges act funny, rpm pegs out and so does speed odometer


There is a recall on the instrument cluster for erratic gauge problems.If you didn`t get a letter then call your dealership and give them your vehicle identification number and ask them if there are any open recalls on it.What they do is type in your V.I.N.to their computer and they will tell you if your truck is involved.The problem is the instrument cluster.The cluster has to be programmed to your V.I.N.when it is replaced.Your V.I.N.has all the information that your vehicle is equipt with.Good luck.

it sounds like you are getting a surge of voltage from your alternator/generator. Very strange.

the dealer can run a diagnostic test & pull fault codes or you can try this. If this helps, please report back & rate as fixya. Thanks. I am curious what you find as root cause. Good luck.

Instrument Cluster Self-Diagnostic Mode
To enter the instrument cluster self diagnostic mode with the engine off, depress and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position and hold until the gauges sweep (within five to eight seconds). Depress the reset button once to advance to each stage of the self-test.
Turn the ignition to the OFF position to exit the instrument cluster self-diagnostic mode. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.


Instrument Cluster Self-Diagnostic Mode Odometer display Description GAGE Carries out gauge sweep of all gauges, then displays the present gauge values. Also carries out the check sum test on ROM and EEPROM. All segments illuminated. Illuminates all odometer segments. bulb Illuminates all micro-controlled lamps and LEDs. r #### Returns to normal operation of all micro-controlled lamps and LEDs and displays hexadecimal value for ROM level (used when requesting assistance from the hotline). nr#### Displays hexidecimal ROM level and type as stored in non-volatile memory (NVM). EE ## Displays hexadecimal value for EE level (used when requesting assistance from the hotline). dt #### Displays hexadecimal code for the final manufacturing date. ###C Gas engines display last temperature gauge input value from SCP, temperature gauge will indicate present temperature. Diesel engine displays present temperature analog/digital input in decimal as a ratio, temperature gauge will indicate present temperature. dtc #### Displays a 16 bit DTC in hexidecimal format. DTCs displayed are those detected in continuous operation not during self-test. EnG Displays English speed value being input, speedometer will indicate present speed. m Displays metric speed value being input, speedometer will indicate present speed. tAc Displays the tachometer value being input to the instrument cluster. Tachometer will indicate present rpm. FUEL Displays the present analog/digital fuel level being input to the instrument cluster as a ratio.
