Does the heater an A/C work ? If so the fuse isn't the problem .
Speedometer
The speedometer is a road indicator. The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is a permanent magnet generator which is located on the transaxle. The VSS sends an input to the PCM whenever the transaxle differential carrier turns. The PCM then buffers the VSS signal. The PCM transmits the VSS signal to the following components at 4000 pulses/mile through CKT 817:
• The instrument cluster
• The cruise control module
• The radio (uplevel)
The instrument cluster uses the input in order to indicate the vehicle speed on the speedometer.
Instrument Cluster Indicators
The BCM controls the instrument cluster indicators through the SPI serial data communication bus. Refer to Body Control Module System Check in Body Control System.

I have a 1999 pontiac sun fire when I am driving sometimes my speedometer works and then it drops off do you know a fix.


does the check engine light come when this happens some vehicles when the speedometer stops working then the check light comes on does the engine change in the way it runs either at cruise or accelerating then this indicates a speed sensor in the transmission has an intermintant problem if there is no check engine light or change in the way the car runs then it is possible the problem is in the speedometer head or connections at the instrument cluster for the speedometer if the light is on then you need to have the computer checked to see if a code is set for the sensor,if so then that is probably were the problem is keep in mind it can also be a poor connection at the sensor,if this not were the problem is then it probably is in the cluster for the speedometer head or the speedometer head itself

My cruise control light comes on but won't engage


The reason any cruise control will not stay engaged is cause by 2 things.

1. Brake light switch. Check to see if your brake lights are coming on when your driving.... i.e have some one follow you while driving without the brake on.

or

2. Loss of speed sensor data to the control module. The speed sensor on an automatic transission car is located on somewhere the drive train / shaft. On a vehicle with a standard transmission the engine tach signal is used. (also unsed on automatic w/Over drive) If you do not see a tach reading on the instrument cluster I would suspect a tach sensor problem.

Troubleshooting needs to be in these 2 areas. As far as a source for schematics. Clymer and Haynes are 2 of many after market repair manuals.

Just bought a used 1995 Honda Prelude and the Tach and speedometer work along with the clock but I can't see any other gauges. (Gas, oil, temp and whatever else might be there. What is the problem?


Since you just bought the car, I thought that you might not be aware of the instrument lighting control. I apologize if you know this:
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness.
To reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness. Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
Hope it's that simple.

Instrument panel not operating


You have a blown fuse. The problem is that there is a cruise control deactivation switch on the master cylinder that gets brake fluid contaminated and shorts out. You will need a new switch and maybe the the connector.
