The car, and all of its parts, is over 20 years old. all mechanical things wear out. i would look on ebay or call around to junk yards and find a used instrument cluster and pay someone to put it in if it is a big deal. a new one will cost more than the value of the car if you can even find one. there may be a video on youtube of someone installing a cluster on this model if you are inclined to try it yourself.
some clusters are easy and some are difficult to remove.

A/c doesn't work, temp gauge doesn't work, speedometer doesn't work until it gets to 30 mph, and rough idle in the mornings. could all this be the result of a bad computer?


Very unlikely that it would be a computer problem, it does not control the A/C, or temp gauge. Sounds like multiple problems. A/C could be just low on Freon, if pressure is low, it will not turn on. Temp gauge and rough idle may be related, if temp sensor is bad, the computer wont know the engine temperature and thus not mix the fuel correctly. But there are many things that can cause rough cold engine idle, like dirty throttle plate, or bad idle air control valve. You did not say what engine you have, so this is just general information.

Starts and stalls, abs, odometer & speedometer out


Check for coolant temp sensor fault, It will affect cold start and idle. It controls open loop mode in the ECU (cold, high idle, open loop) Perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history. Also make sure coolant level is correct.

the O2 sensor works on one volt .5 is around the running voltage, i would refit the air hose as it will run the converter hotter at idle.

Transmission screwed??


You will have to give a little bit of time on this one. The over heating coming up through the vents, sounds like your heater core. Now the temp gauge not working may be a sending unit (which one I am not sure there is three of them). The sports light I have never heard of that before. Now the car stalling and not turning back on could be a few things like, clogged or catalitic converter, or crank shaft sensor just to name a couple. The speedometer working only part of the time is usually the speedometer gauge in the dash but if it don't work at all it's probably a snapped speedometer cable or even a loose one.

Low idle speed problem!


You probably disturbed the timing between the crankshaft and the camshaft if you loosened the timing belt.

1989 honda prelude enigne idles high then low irratic


I had the same problem on a Rover. There was a leak in inlet manifold that was caussing the problem.
To verify, spray some sealant to temporarily seal the inlet manifold .and the eratic idling should disappear for some time.
If it does, you know there is leak in inlet manifold which you can take of and refit with a new gasket.
