Sounds like you have a cluster problem, you checked the cluster fuse in the fuse panel? If fuses are ok it may be a more serious problem right inside the instrument cluster

2003 VW jetta speedometer stopped working and the gas gauge started fluxuating as car turns etc. I replaced 2 speed sensors, one on top of trans with no pigtail just connector, Didnt solve problem. I...


The speed sensor that is under the trans. mount on the driver side sends the shift points to the computer telling it at what point to shift. The sensor that actually controls your speedometer is in the back near the firewall. It is tall and should have a silver heat shield over it. However, the problem that you have described sounds more like an electrical short or a wire grounding out somewhere. I would check for wires getting pinched under the steering column in the dash since things quit working when you are turning. Also check the wiring behind the instrument cluster. Elecrical problems can sometimes be complex and hard to find but with some due diligence they can be solved. Hope this helps.

You need another instument cluster,the thing with all the gauges. New is pretty pricey but have had good luck with them from a local salvage yard.

2006 suburban oil pressure gauge fluxuating


Most likely it's the oil sending sensor, located beside the oil filter. You can change it, just be sure to have old newspaper or rags laying around the area where you will work, because a little oil will be lost. The part isn't expensive, for mine on a Ford Expedition was around $35 and took 5 minutes to change. Just un-plug the connector going to the sensor, and a larger wrench will be needed, large (7/8, 15/16) somewhere in that range of size.
