These gauge sets are notorious for having connection problems. Remove the gauge cluster and thoroughly clean the electrical contacts where they plug in with electrical contact cleaner. It may also help to SLIGHTLY bend the metal male connectors on the rear of the cluster where they plug into the female plug. Remember they still have to connect to the plug, so a SLIGHT bend, just enough to get a better connector. You can also clean the contacts with rubbing alcohol and Q Tips if you dont have contact cleaner.

Impossible to tell without knowing what fuse number is blowing, along with some basic electrical troubleshooting.
Common suspects include:
altered factory stereo
Aftermarket alarm system
chafed wiring
defective instrument lamp
defective instrument panel

Dashboard lights and gauges are blank nothing comes on, car starts fine and drives fine but no dashboard or gauges, I'v not checked the fuse yet, have u got a diagram of which 1 I'm looking for, ie diagram...


hey there since you cant find diagram for the fuses i suggest getting a test light find a good ground spot near your fuse box or boxes and take the needle point of your tester and touch the metal tabs on top of each fuse if you get power on one side and not the other replace that fuse if power on both sides that fuse is a good one.. make sure you check all fuse boxes since you didn't specify what type of vehicle you have i can't give you any location points.good luck !

Gauges on dashboard quit working


I would suggest you remove the dash light dimmer control rheostat (In most cases part of the main headlight switch) and test it for continuity, I think it may be defective, please perform the testing before replacing any parts.

Gauges jump around from nothing to working right


It isn't fun but; try pulling and re-plugging any connectors you find, especially under the dashboard. Your description sounds a lot like a 'flaky' connector. Also, if your owner's guide or the cover for your fuses has a description of fuse functions, pull and replace the fuse for 'accessories,' If this supplies the dash with power, it may just be a crusty fuse holder.

Air conditioner, fuel gauge, and temp gauge all stopped working at the same time


Three possibilities;
All related to blown fuses,

1- Fuse blown in the engine compartment LH.
2- Fuse blown in the cabin forward LH below the dashboard (below your legs left hand).
3- Fuse blown in the harness (wire bundles) below the dashboard very easy to reach with your hands “just look underneath steering wheel ".

U said " The air conditioner blows, but the air is not cold.
" Yes only the fan working which might receiving power independent all from those other mentioned things.
If all fuses OK. Then look for broken wires.

Dashboard gauges


Sounds like you have a broken wire. Check the wires under the fuse panel under the hood. Its a problem with Chrysler mini vans and it might be the same here.
