I have a 1990 acura legend an my gas guage wont work along with 3 of my automatic windows wont go up or down whats the problems


Most likely, both problems are not related. Check the fuse box in the car and in the engine compartment, look for blown fuses. The windows are probably the switches, especially if they are on the drivers door. It's odd that just one window works, so that's the place to look. Check the wiring from the switches back to the connector. If you know how to use a volt meter, check each window that isn't working has power to the switch, if it does, check the power going to each window motor, if you have power to the motor when you actuate the switch, then the motor is bad. AND, yes, you can have 3 window motors go bad at the same time, especially if the car has been in water, or you had a serious voltage overload in that circuit. As far as the gas gauge, check for a blown fuse, power to the gauge itself and then, power to the connector that comes off the gas tank. It can only be the gauge itself, a broken wire, or the gas tank sender, good luck!

1996 nissan maxima wont start, windows wont roll and dashboard caution lights and icons not lighting up when i turn the key. the turn signals also arent working but they do with the hazard lights on. car...


I think your ignition switch has quit working, or it has stopped getting power. If you pull the connector apart to the ignition switch and check if there is one wire on the harness side of the connector that has power, it sure looks like a bad ignition switch. One fat wire, about 12 gauge size, going into the switch should be hot at all times. If you have it, pretty obvious that power is not going out of the switch. key on should send power out of the switch to the fuses for the windows and other accessories, and also send power to the dash for the warning lights and gauges.
Power to the switch will be either from one of your fusible links near the battery or from a maxi fuse in the fuse/relay block under the hood. The funny action of the key kind of points to the ignition switch, though. Still, check for power into the switch first.

Gas gauge quit working, now car won't start


Sounds like you dont have any power going to your fuel pump. You will have to drop your tank and with a light tester check the red wire for power. If you cant tell with one is the red wire it will be the secound wire going into the plug. If you dont have any power there then make sure your fuses are good. You will need help with this because it is very had to reach the key switch and check the wire the same time. It is on a relay switch and only stays on for 5 secounds. Good luck.

My odometer, speedometer, gas gauge, temperture gauge and rpm gauge do not work. I've checked the fuses but have not located a problem. What should I look at to evaluate this problem?


there should be a relay box under the hood on the right hand side it should say fuse/relay center under the lid is listed all the fuses and relays there should be one thats for the dash board

good luck!

My oil pressure, temperature, volt gauges, turn signals, and center console switch for rear window have stopped working. Fuse or relay?


Both? A 7.5A "Gauge" fuse provides power for the oil press, temp, volt, and the solenoid coil for the rear window relay. The actual power for the rear window comes from somewhere else probably the 30A Power CB.

2001 blazer wont start . gas gauge quit working ,fuel pump wont work will work suppling power to port in fuse panel. ecm fuse ok,relay ok


Sounds like the ignition switch has gone bad and will need to be replaced. Turn the ignition switch to the on position again and check to see if there is power to other items like the transmission and accessories. If there are a few items that are not working, good chance that the ignition switch has gone bad and is there any security light on the dash flashing???

Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

Fule gauge speedometer and rpm gauges stopped


Go to the fuse box and change the fuse for "Gauges". I think this might solve the problem.
