    all warning lights light up then turn off as they should, but tach and speedo will not move. Temperature gauge appears to be working, not sure about the fuel gauge.

    In my 96 Grand Am the gas gauges, tach, speedometer and idiot lights bounced around and flickered around a bit before they completely stopped working. However the odometer and lights on the gauge cluster seems to work fine.

What would cause temperature gauge bouncing ?


Sounds like the sending unit has an intermittent short to ground. Unhook the the wire from the sending unit, and see if the needle stops jumping around. If it quits jumping around, replace the sending unit. If it still jumps around, you have a bare spot somewhere on the wire and it is hitting ground which will cause the needle to jump. Cut out the bad part of the wire and splice in a new section. That should fix it.

Hi, i have a grand cherokee 5,7 from 2006. The lights in the instrument panel, and the exterior lights keep flashing when the engine in turned on. I cannot adjust the lights in the instument panel neither....


I have a similar problem - every once in a while all of my dash lights flash on like the car is trying to conk out/stall (I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee) - the car has no loss of power and runs fine, just all of the dashboard lights and warnings come on like its going to stall. Happens on dry days, wet days, cold days, warm days - at least 3 times a month. trouble is, because its intermittent no one can find the problem.

1997 mustang instument cluster problems


If the warning lights work we will assume the fuse for "cluster" or "gauges" is good, so the problem may be in the printed circuit board inside the cluster. I can't tell if there is more than one power wire for the cluster from the fuse box.

Sounds strange,look in your manual this may be a warning code if it bounces to the same rpm range. if not check your ecu black box ,if water or damp getting inside it may be causing the problem untill the engine heat dryes it out.

If you've just had the instument changed then its probable that the connector has come loose and will have to be re-connected. It could also be that the instument has failed. Take it back to the mechanic who changed the old one. This assumes that the car drives ok and all the fluids are topped up and ok.

Light on instrument panel


That is an Airbag Warning Light. You will need to have the Dealership or a Qualified Mechanic Reset this Light. If you try and mess around with the Air Bag System The airbags could go off resulting in Major Repairs to the Dash and other Components.
