Question about Kia Spectra

1 Answer

My 2004 Kia Spectra EX cluster lights went out. I've changed the fuse and they still don't work. I'm wondering if there's a quick fix before I rip out my entire dash.

Yes, there is a common fix.

Often the dash light goes off because of a broken dimmer switch.

Check the dimmer switch on the dash, that is often causing the problem. The dimmer switch can be tested removing it and pointing an Ohm meter at its contacts.

Where is the fuse for the speedometer on a 2002 kia spectra

there is not a specific fuse just for the speedometer. The instrument cluster is fed by two fuses. The one that would power the speedo (meter fuse in the interior fuse block) also supplies power to the fuel gauge and the transmission range switch. If it where blown several things would not work.

If you have any question let me know and I'll be happy to answer them. Thank you for using!

2004 kia spectra the third break light works but the others don't

I assume you hav checked the fuse boxes for blown fuses.
Also have switched the bad bulbs to the good light fixture to check if they are ok.
If so, If you have a volt/ohm meter you can check for power at the bad bulb locations Be sure to also check the grounds using the ohmmeter...that is a more likely problem.

Hope this helps you...good luck

Speedometer Quit working, odometer also. Don't

What sounds like happened is that the instrument cluster fuse sounds like its burnt out. Otherwise the wires on the back of them both may have been knocked out. Very simple fix if its the fuse, if not, pull the cluster out and check the wiring. Hope this helps!
