The color stripes on the resistor should tell you.
If it does not have colored stripes, it is a diode or something, and not a resistor. Find another the same color, and measure it with an ohmmeter. Trial and error works if you start with one having greater resistance.

Why did my 1999 dodge stratus odometer, speedometer, and gas guage quit working?

Check your fuses first, or could be a burnt resistor on the gauges circuit board.

Speedometer on my 1997 rav 4 is not working does it run off a fuess

It is digital, no fuse! Does the odometer work? If not a lose connection on the back then faulty resistor on the circuit board!

The blower motor on 1987 camry works intermit. is this a bad resistor?

Find the blower resister board that is attached to the air manifold just behind the glove box. It will have a plug attached to it. remove this board from the plastic or cardboard air plunum and check for any coils that are broken. The air traveling through the plunum serves to cool the coils. When the coils break, you loose a motor speed. If the motor is intermittant at any or all speeds, then motor is going bad. JC Witney!

2005 Avalanche blower not working on any speed,checked fuse seems to be ok. Removed glove box ,not sure what to check. Thanks James,

get a circuit tester and attach it to 12 volt battery circuit.then find the blower motor resistor and probe the wires going to it. the test light should come on if the resistor is good because it is suppling ground to the blower motor. each wire is for a different blwer setting so you will have to check them all on different levels of the blower switch.

Where is speedo cable attached?

It is not a cable it should be an electrical sensor located on the left side of the transmission next to the driveaxle flange. This information is directly from a Haynes repair book covering 1983-1989.

Speedometer doesn't work after pulling dashboard apart

Check behind the dash to see if the speedometer drive cable was reattached. (mechanical, not electronic drive)

2006 toyota tacoma copmas/temp out.

My '05 Tacoma had the same problem, and the display was all dark.

Take the assembly down (unplug the connectors, etc, of course). Remove the PC board which has the circuitry for temp and compass. Mine had a surface-mount resistor "lifted" from its spot on the board (making an open circuit). I thought too much current probably made it too hot, and the thing broke loose and it was ready for the electronic graveyard. I carefully pushed it back to the board and re-soldered the end. Once reassembled and installed it worked again ... and still does 3 months later.

Good luck!

1997 SAAB 900s speedometer and tachometer not working

Remove the instrument panel form the dash. Pull the back off and resolder resistor R13 on the back circuit board. This is a fairly delicate job and requires a fine pointed soldering iron. This fixed the Tach, Odometer readout, and fuel guage but not the speedometer in my 85 900 s.

Any ideas on the speedometer?
