I had a similar problem several years ago with my 1993 Dodge intrepid. None of the instruments on the dash would work. When this would happen the transmission would not shift past second gear. My heater blower was Not running all the time. What I found was the wiring harness to the ignition switch did not have enough slack in it. This was causing the ignition switch plug to randomly lose contact with the ignition switch. The first thing you need to do is remove the steering column covers. Put the tilt steering all the way up. Look under the steering column cover. There are 2 phillips head screws and 3 recessed T-10 torx tip screws that hold the 2 halves of the cover together and to the steering column. Remove all 5 screws. The handle used to tilt the steering wheel also has to be removed. You will need a T-30 torx tip to remove it. Now carefully remove the bottom half of the cover. The ignition switch wiring harness is under the steering column. I just reached in under the column and gently pulled on the harness until it had a little slack when I left go. Make sure the ignition switch plug is plugged in all the way. You might even want to unplug it and plug it back in several times just in case a slight film of corrosion has accumulated on any of the electrical terminals. This will help clean it off. You could also look inside the plug to make sure none of the terminals are bent or pushed part way out the back. I hope this solves your problem. Mine has not reoccurred in the 8 years since I did this.

Temperature gauge shows car is running hot but it isnt what could be causing it


The gauge is bad . Replace insturment cluster maybe . Have it tested . Could be computer or data network problem . You need to know how it works . Depending on the make , model and year vehicle . Coolant temp. sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer, the PCM sends this information to the insturment cluster over a serial data network . Having the vehicle hooked up to diagnostic equipment is the way to find the problem . GM vehicles years 2003 to 2006 had insturment cluster problems .

My dash board lights flash on and off intermittently. Some times they come on fast other times it takes a long time. drew@zyntel.com


insturment clusters on these cars are known for going bad and blinking on and off. get the cluster fixed or get a used one. there is a company on ebay that will fix it for around $75.00, with a lifetime warrenty. just go to ebay and type in 93-94 lexus ls400 insturment cluster. There ad will come up and just follow the directions. Trust me this will fix the problem. It is also cheaper than buying another one that has no guarantee.

I had the same problem with my 2004 yukon. It seems all the gauges in the insturment cluster are known to go bad from 2003-2006 in GMC and Chevys. The deaerships are trying to sell you a new instrument cluster which is pretty costly if your warrenty is up. I repaired the circuit board on my insturment cluster myself and everything is working fine now. Since hearing abouth this problem I have started repairing the insturment cluster as a side business. If your vehicle is out of warrenty and your intersted shoot me an e-mail (ryanfeider@hotmial.com).
