Question about 1991 Lincoln Continental

Why does my instrument cluster black out a lot? The digital cluster often goes black while driving. I have no idea of the mileage, gas, or anything else when it blacks out. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. 1991 Lincoln Continental Exec. Series.

Having the same problem with my 2001 Merc Cougar, When does it black out? While reving or randomly? Mine is while heavy accelerating. Could be over voltage at the charging system (alternator or regulator) or internal in the cluster. Get the alternator and batt tested first, ask for a load test, then try the cluster next.

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.)

You will have to have the cluster repaired. If you are handy, you can take the cluster out yourself. There a number of vendors on Ebay who repair clusters.

This may be hard to believe, but it is the circuitry in the instrument cluster. I have (2) 1997 Camry's and one of them had this problem. I swapped instrument clusters with the other camry, then the other camry had the problem.


Buy a used instrument cluster from a junkyard with a 30 day warranty and you should be good to go (though your mileage will be incorrect).

1990 HONDA CIVIC DX ENGINE LIGHT ON


More info needed. Is this a hatch back, sedan, or CRX? Is the odometer mechanical [old style] or digital [LCD numbers] The vehicle speed sensor [located behind the speedometer in the instrument cluster] drives both the speedometer and the odometer [mileage meter]. It sounds like an electric problem in the instrument cluster. Remove the instrument cluster and take it to your local speedometer repair shop. Look in the yellow pages for them. Or simply buy and install a used instrument cluster from a junk yard.

There are bulbs in the instrument cluster and they are probably bad. You will have to take the instrument cluster out of the dash and take each bulb out individually to see which one is bad then replace it/them and reinstall the instrument cluster back in the dash. It sounds a lot harder than it really is.

In the instrument cluster the only needle that registers is the gas. The Speedometer, tach, nor temp registers. The trip gauge doesn't work, the mileage does't increase. I've done the diagonstic test,...


Maybe the cluster but try checking fuses first. My Aerostar does this when one particular fuse goes out. Also, make sure NOTHING so much as comes near the back of instrument cluster. Even a little scrap of paper touching changes the electrical values fed back.

Odometer and fuel guage not working


on many buicks and impalas there is a problem with the wire resistors falling off the circuit board! You will see four resistors upper right if any of these has fallen off they need to be replaced, Good news is you can replace them yourself ! go to your electronic supply store and buy 151 surface resistors and replace them ! These are 50 ohm and don't get hot and fall off. use a 15 watt soldering iorn. Don't want it to hot! Repace all 4 and wala it should lifgt back up! Douglas Noack texasinstrumentcluster.com

S70 instrument cluster not working


Hi,

I had a similar problem. The speedometer didn't work. This is going to sound a little strange, but, at some point the battery died. When the new battery was put in, all of a sudden the speedometer worked again. Can't explain it, but it's true. Maybe just disconnecting and re-connecting the battery would help you, BUT BE CAREFUL about the radio. When the battery is disconnected (or dies) you have to put the radio code in again to use your radio. Make sure you have the 4-digit radio code before you disconnect the battery. If you enter it 3 times and fail, google what to do then.
