You may have low coolant due to a leaking cooling system. Check the fluid level. You may have a faulty radiator fan. The fan should kick on an run from electric current when you are in traffic and if it does not then the thermostat for the fan may be bad. You may also have a blocked radiator so water may not be circulating properly. I don't know of the gauges, but the expense would be pricey due to the labor to remove the portion of the dash to get the instrument cluster out and the repair to the cluster would probably run around $150 if it is an average electronics failure.

The car is an automatic.


When you say the speedometer does not work, do you mean the needle is stuck at certain speed or is at zero all the time.. If it is at zero all the time, replace your meter. If it's stuck at certain speed, give it a knock with your fingers. And if that do not work, drill a pin hole with a fine drill just above the position where the needle is stuck and using a fine thin wire, push the needle back to zero position.

Red temperature on toyota ist what does it mean?


most temp guages use color coding instead of numbers because its less confusing to most drivers..red generally means operating temps are higher than is reccomended by the manufacturer to run safely.. this should tell you to check the overall systen for issues like low coolant or malfunctioning parts in the system...most guages I have ever seen run close to halfway up most of the time..(except my 92 dodge which stays under a quarter way over unless its parked in heavy traffic then it goes way up and I am forced to turn on the heater in extweme cases..) just to be sure , look over the system or have someone who knows look at it to insure it is fine. otherwise you will need to idle the car in a parked spot and just observe it for about a half hour and see if it overheats or anything...good luck..

Well I would start there.
The computer takes the engine and air temp and regulates the amount of on time for the injectors among other things.
Make sure the coolant level is full, the thermostat is opening, and see if the code comes back. Could be a faulty sensor.

What does it mean when my temperature gage is cooler than normal?


In most cases nothing, but have your antifreeze tested to see if maybe to much concntrate, otherwise, just keep eye on it and fluids to make don't go the other way.

you may have to take a magnet and put it over the speedometer needle and move the needle back to zero,this some times happens when a battery is connected as the voltage surge causes the needle to bounce some times to far and its not able to return to zero.you may need to have the system checked for proper charging,the voltage could be borderline causing the light to come on.you can try disconnecting the battery as it may reset the light.

First thing is the that the coolant temperature sensor is quite different to the temperature sender that is monitored on your dash board. Assuming everything is working fine the thermostat may be stuck open. This would cause coolant to be circulated without restriction and so remaining cooler than usual even when the engine is at running temperature.

a scanner that gets into the instrument cluster computer can reset the needles. or take the dash apart and manually turn dash cluster upsidedown, then the needles will move so rotate untill the needles are reset.

Speedometer needle is stuck behind the pin


Here is how it happens, The positive battery cable was loose, after adjusting the battery cable the speedometer needle went under the retention ping.
How to fix it:
1- remove the positive battery cable
2- have a person to look at the speedometer needle
3- Make the battery cable to touch the positive terminal of the battery (this will make the needle to jump over the retention pin)
4- Tight cable again.

Shifting problems My car is a 2006 Hyundai Tiburon, Automatic, 2.0L 4 Cylinder I've had the car two years I don't know what's related and what isn't so here is the story. Bought car, (cruise control did not work) but everything else seemed fine, engine light came on code read Vehicle Speed Sensor so I bought an input and an out transmission speed sensor and had them installed, Motor blew 2 heads had motor replaced with an almost new motor. Cruise control now works, three days later car would not come out of park shifter moved but car stayed in park felt like shifting cable let loose, I called a backyard mechanic friend and he moved the shifter hard and it went into drive said probably buddy who changed motor forgot to unhook cable and stretched it (made sense to me) it did this everytime car was put into park had to yank on the shifter to get it to shift so I started parking her in neutral and it never messed up, after 3 weeks my new shift cable came in so I went to show my mechanic what car was doing it wouldn't do it worked fine, told him I'd call him next time it messed up this is a year and a half later hasn't messed up like that again! I had already bought the cable so I decided to have it installed anyways even though problem seemed fixed went to a shop they told me nothing is wrong with my cable..... Approx 6 months ago put car into drive and started driving the car reved out (I call it) motor got really loud and RPM gage went to 4K and car jerked really bad and made a really loud snap noise so I pulled over and roughley shift car into park and back into drive and drove this fixed the issue for that drive anyways.... my car one day over heated to red line in a 5 minute drive in the winter my mechanic said must be an air lock so he drained my fluid and replaced ect, next day car wouldn't start, blew starter, replaced that, next day driving car and in a 5 minute drive it overheated to red line took car to shop he said gage is reading wrong car is barely even warm so I decided to take the car home and worry about this issue pay day well the next day car wouldn't start, blew alternator, at this time my mechanic looked over car more closley turns out I had a bad ground so he put on new alternator and new ground, this was a month ago and no more issues with overheating or not starting. However I still have this issue (copy and paste) "put car into drive and started driving the car reved out (I call it) motor got really loud and RPM gage went to 4K and car jerked really bad and made a really loud snap noise so I pulled over and roughley shift car into park and back into drive and drove this fixed the issue for that drive anyways...." After having ground put on and shifting issue still there I took my car directly to Hyundai they ran all their computer tests and transmission tests and took car for a test drive car worked fine and only code that came up was Vehicle Speed Sensor. So here is where I stand first question how many speed sensors does my car have is a transmission input/output speed sensor different then a vehicle speed sensor? I looked on parts sites and only speed sensors I find are ABS speed sensor and Vehicle Speed Transmisson Sensor, so maybe sensors I bought are no good but they were bought new or maybe the connector for the sensors are bad? I don't know any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
