Question about 2006 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

Fuel guage and Temperature guage

I have an 2006 Ford XLT Ranger . The fuel gauge, temperature gauge , rev counter, speedometer,odometer, have all stopped working. I have checked all the fuses all are OK. The fuses were checked with an AVO not just a visual check. The problem is intermittent, It will be fine for a few days and then fail. I suspect a faulty relay but lack a wiring diagram, any advise is appreciated.

    speedometer, tachometer, powerlocks (remote) work fine. Car was working fine, shut off to go shopping then problem started without warning when restarting a few minutes later. Fuses seem to be ok.

    2003 C180 Kompressor Elegance w/low mileage. Over the past few days the radio cut in and out and has now stopped completely, on/off switch does not activate/deactivate radio. I checked the fuse which seems to be ok but could still be faulty. What else may have cause this malfunction?

My 06 ranger is a 4 cyl model and I also am looking for a wiring diagram. Have you checked bulkhead connectors on the firewall for security, corrosion etc.? If you find the schematic on line please post the link. Good luck.

Where do I find the fuses for temperature and fuel gauges for a 1990 ford ranger XLT 2wheel drive 2.9

The gages do not have a separate fuse, all of the cluster is supplied from just one fuse.

2002 ford escape back lights for the speedometer, fuel guage, engine temperature, and revs won't light up. All other lights work. I've checked the fuses.

tough one.
Check for any possible loose connections behind/under the gauge cluster.
Could be a burnt bulb too.

1 bought a used ford ranger xlt but the gas gauge and tempature needles aren't moving is there a fuse for them

most likely problem for the fuel guage is the sending unit. The temperature sending unit should be easy to get to. depending on the motor, it is going to be a one wire connector going to it, most likely on the lower intake manifold. Once you find it. connect a jumper wire to it from the NEG battery terminal. It should peg out on hot, which would mean a faulty temp sending unit.

My temperature gauge and my fuel gauge arent working and the fuse is is good .... also how hard is it to replace the speedometer cable ?

On replacing the speedometer cable, on a scale of 1 to 10, probably 3 or 4.
Hooking to the transmission, " baby play ", connecting the other end to the speedometer, well that represents the 4.

My brother has leant me his 1993 Ford fairmont EB11. A red light is flashing intermiitanly it looks like a fan in some kind of cylinder. Could someone tell me what it is?

  • Full instrumentation pack (four ancillary guages plus tachometer) - with volt meter & oil pressure guage.
  • Speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, fuel guage & water temperature guage standard in addition to the above.
  • WARNING LIGHTS: High beam, rear window demist on, turn signal / hazard light, alternator fail, lights on, park-brake on, washer fluid low, radiator coolant low, cruise control indicator and low oil pressure.
  • AUDIBLE WARNING CHIMES: low fuel, lights on, low alternator charge, low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and brake failure.
  • Trip Computer standard featuring fuel consumption figures, distance to empty, average speed & time display.
I found this site, no mention of the fan in a cylinder, but I'll let you figure it out. Hope this helps.

My fuel gauge rev counter speedometer and temperature gauge needles are not workin

I'm dealing with the same issues on mine: check the speedo cable is properly hooked up on the back of the instrument panel and at the sender on the transmission. Check your electrical connections and fuses are ok for all the other instruments.

The dashboard

You may have a couple separate concerns. The fuel gauge if it is on empty may have a hole in the float. The speedometer odometer and trip meter is probably a broken gear in the speedo assembly. If the speedometer itself works it is getting a signal from the speed sensor.
