SOURCE: gauge cluster lights

You should have a dimmer switch that increases or decreases the amount of light that the dash produces. This should be located to the right of the steering wheel. It is a wheel that goes up or down. I believe on your model you can slide the switch all the way up, and you will feel a click, and that should be the brightest setting.

Let me know what you find out!

SOURCE: the gauges don't work

The instrument cluster operates independantly of the lighting for them. You could possibly have a fuse somewhere that has blown causing all gauges to stop, or it could potentially be that the cluster itself is bad and needs replaced or this could be a sign of a wireing harness failure of the instrument cluster. I'm afraid your best bet is to take it in and have it looked at by someone trained in dealing with those parts of the system.

SOURCE: dash gauges not working

Check the large multi-pin connector in the electronics bay in the engine compartment. The bay is a fairly large black plastic box on the driver's side. Open it and disconnect the largest connector inside (one screw). Spray electrical contact cleaner on the pins and re-mate the connector. This worked on my '99 with the exact same problem. You can find other examples of this with a Google search. It may not solve your problem (could also be a wiring harness problem), but it is incredibly simple and worth a shot.

SOURCE: 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager instrument cluster problem

There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble.
As I fore mentioned I had the exact same issue as you are describing, our is a 99. The most tricky part is the dash, take your time with it.
I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

Changed the battery in my 03 tahoe, now none of the guags work


Your best bet have the instrument cluster tested . Hooking it up to a factory scanner is the best first diagnostic step . Checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Checking cluster data , all gauge info. come's from the BCM or PCM over the class 2 serial data network . Class2 data is a communication network for the control modules . Are their any light's lit on the instrument cluster ? Check engine , ABS , Air bag etc..... GM also had instrument cluster problems from 2003 to 2006 , stepper motor's that drive the gauge needls , silver migration -google that one.

1997 Volvo 850 no abs light


The abs light bulb has burned out (just like a regular light bulb). These bulbs can be replaced easily, you just remove the upper portion of the dashboard by removing the retaining screws and then you will see the gauge cluster underneath. The gauge cluster will unclip and unplug and then you can replace the bulbs which are burned out. It is very common for older cars to have dash bulbs burn out.

Any quick fix to get the abs and TC light to go off on a H2 Hummer


Unfortunately the cluster that displays the lights is not serviceable. Meaning you can't pop the cluster and remove the bulbs. Removing fuses or relays for your TC and ABS system will disable them, but the lights will stay lit.

Have the various systems scanned and see if they show a fault code, I suspect they will. As far as the gauges go that sounds like the rebuilder screwed up.

It can be several things. Te simple one is that the connector behind the cluster is loose. The other is the circut board that makes up the cluster is going bad. Try disconnecting the cluster and re connecting. If this does not work, try replacing it with a sed one from a salvage yard or from ebay.

No gauges, of any kind, and no fans


The Abs light and gauge problem is a cracked circuit board in the cluster. You need to replace the circuit board or install a used cluster. But if you do this, the dealer will have to program it before it will work. If you smack the side of the dash, the gauges should come back on.
