Gas guage, tach problems

My gas guage hasn't worked for months. Now my tach needle is pegged and in the way of my speedometer. Could these problems be related? My instrument cluster fuse looks okay. What should I check now?

I have been having the same problem. My gas gauge reads empty when full, never moves. My RPM will go hay wire when in hot weather. Like if i'm going 50MPH the needle will go to the RPM 5. And sometimes even go past that intrupting my MPH. So they'll be intwind. So, I would not now how much gas I got, how fast I am going.

Gas gauge and tach do not read proper readings! What will cause this? The gas guage will peg past full when there is only quarter tank and tach reads 4500 RPM at idle


The gas tank sounds like a bad ground usually located under the car at the gas tank. I do not know but maybe they both tach and fuel gague get their ground from the same place.

I have a 1997 Dodge Voyager Ralleye and the speedometer needle fell off because the instrument panel shorts out once in a while and my wife smacked the top of the dash and it fell off...so I pulled apart...


with the needles off and the scanner set to calibrate the speedometer and all the rest of the needles need to be installed at 1/2 full range with the system on unless otherwise noticed by the scanner.

My speedometer,Tach, Gas guage, temp guage, windows all lost.


That smoke came from some wires that shorted and melted. Take the car immediately to a shop and fix the wiring loom, it can burst into flames at any minute now.

Temp guage rolled over under tach chngd thermo no change. Not overheating. dis con guage @1st reset, now no chng.


this happens to alot of gm cars. the only way to fix it is take off the bezel for the guages and manually turn the needle back. some times you can get a wire in and hook the needle to flip it over. i have had this happen on buicks, pontiacs and chevys. this is the only way i have found to fix it. it may happen again. gm may have an updated instrument panel with a peg to stop it from doing it again.
