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.

1999 Nissan Maxima gauge lights won't work and sound wont come out of speakers but radio works.

get into the fuse box and check the fuses are ok. If they are then check the wiring connection under the dash to the various gauges and at the speakers. Also check for frayed wires touching metal or other bare wires.

Dash gauges not working. I have lost all the gauges in my dash and the cruise control. Also, the O/D off light stays on. I have lights, but no gauges, they are all bottomed out.

You really should not list your email and phone number online.

Someone will need to get a wiring diagram for the dash and check the circuits with a meter or a test light. By your husband making the instruments work by moving the fuses, it could be a problem with one of the contacts in the fuse box.

All my lights tcs abs slip and brake are on and the brakes feel like the hand brakes are on smells like it what can I do.....

Another thing to check is that the climate control module/a/c auto amp part number 27760 7y01a (later 2006) or 27760-7Y000 or 27500-7Y000 (2004-2006) can also affect the CAN/OBD2 system and produce a code of U1000 as well as affecting the dash gauges (will trip the SLIP,TCS,ABS and cause the dash gauges to not function) and cause a no start issue with headlights turning on regardless of switch position and cooling fans will run as soon as key turned to "on position". it is located under the center dash above the radio. This is a PAIN IN THE *** to diagnose without someone letting you know of it. Problem usually caused by coins (or other small metal objects) falling through dash assembly an going through slot that looks like it belongs on a piggy bank on the climate control box... then shorting it out. This greatly upsets the CAN system. If you are replacing or have easy access to this component suggest mesh tape over that hole to preclude future issue.

Tachometer, fuel gauge, temp gauge, speedometer not working on my 2004 Nissan spec-v

Check the fuse for the gauges, either around the dash, or under the hood.

Car: Nissan Maxima SE 1997 tachometer broken

the dash voltage egulator probably went bad. First,check the battery & make sure you have 12 volts,not running. Check it again running & you should see about 14.5 volts. If that's good,I'd replace the guage assembly.

Issues with gauges, ac doesnt work

You have a serious problem. However, with this limited info, I can't tell you much. Try the fuel pressure & volume. Have it checked for any trouble codes.Write back.

buy yourself a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze and add them to the gas tank for the misfire when it is cold. and locate all the relays you can find that control the issues you are having and replace them. don't forget the fuse/relay panel under the hood near the battery.
