Just a thought , your ignition barrel may be faulty , sometime's the things that are hung of key rings aid to this fault and regular starting of course.

this has happed to me on other vehicles , in your case it may be the problem ..

also check your start relay this may be faulty !
hope this helps

2003 sentra Nissan. Trouble starting, engine has died while I was driving, it did start back up. Today speedometer, engine temp,etc showed nothing? Battery is 5 months old? What could be wrong?


Nothing working on the instrument cluster ? Shouldn't be a battery problem with being only five months old. Turn on the headlamps , do they shine bright ? Does the check engine light come on when you turn the key to the on position ? Do all warning lights come on with the key on , then some go off after a few seconds ? Checking for diagnostic trouble codes in the instrument cluster would be a good thing to do also . The Instrument cluster could be the problem .

Need 2000 dodge grand caravan manuel. The dash instrument panel stopped working after a battery replacement. The light work. The tach and speedometer are pinned all the way to the right. ?


Digital Odometer??
Try this procedure and let me know if this worked for you. I have done this several dozen times and it helped reset the Instrument Cluster.
1. With the Key IN the Ignition and in the OFF (not On or Start)Position
2. Push in and hold-in the Trip Odometer Reset button.
3. When "sof 4.0" appears: release the Button and WAIT.
4. There maybe some "E" Codes that may appear.
5. Continue to let the System run its course. There should be a great light show on the dash along with the Tach and Speedometer needles dancing all over the place.
6. In about 30-seconds it will complete it's reset cycle.

Again let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions REPLY in the Comments Section of this Post.

Just bought a used 1995 Honda Prelude and the Tach and speedometer work along with the clock but I can't see any other gauges. (Gas, oil, temp and whatever else might be there. What is the problem?


Since you just bought the car, I thought that you might not be aware of the instrument lighting control. I apologize if you know this:
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness.
To reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness. Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
Hope it's that simple.

Back lights are dim on speedometer, odometer


You probably checked this, but sometimes we forget.
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness. Also, to reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness.
Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
I hope helps and it's that simple for you.

The Radio don't work and speedometer needles stater


Unfortunately my instrument panel did the same then the tach stopped working and gas needle became stuck...I had to get a new instrument cluster which set me back $700.00 including labor(Miami, FL)...NOTE...the odometer's computer is on the cluster and the odometer's reading has to be downloaded to the new instrument cluster.

2003 chrysler town & country speedometer stuck


sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster) into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then further diagnostic will be needed.
