1st check the #4 fuse (10A) and #10 fuse (7.5A) on the 'under-dash' fuse block.
then #9 fuse (10A) on the 'engine bay' fuse block.

if the fuses are good, the gauge assembly has has "self-diagnostic" feature.

Self-diagnostic Procedure

The gauge assembly has a self-diagnosis function.
. The beeper drive circuit check
. The indicator drive circuit check
. The LCD segments check
. The gauges drive circuit check (speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, coolant temperature gauge)
. The communication line check (the coolant temperature signal line between the gauge and ECM/PCM)


Entering the Self-diagnosis Function:
1. Push and hold the trip/reset button.
2. Turn the lighting switch ON.
3. Turn the ignition switch ON (ll).
4. Within 5 sec., turn the lighting switch OFF, then ON and OFF again.
5. Within 5 sec., release the trip/reset button, then push and release the button four times repeatedly.

NOTE:
. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the dash lights brightness controller operates normally.
. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the trip/reset button is used to start the beeper drive circuit test and the gauge drive circuit check.
. lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1.2 mph (2 km/h) or the ignition switch is turned OFF, the self-diagnosis mode ends.

The Beeper Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the beeper sounds five times.

The Indicator Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode. the indicators lights (such as: Seat belt indicator light, Door/hatch indicator light, Brake system light. Charging system light, Low fuel indicator light, maintenance required light) blink.

The LCD Segment Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the odo/trip segment blinks five times.

The Gauge Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the speedometer, the tachometer, the fuel gauge, and the coolant
temperature gauge needles go from the minimum position to maximum position, then return to the minimum position.
NOTE:
After the beeper stops sounding and the gauge needles return to the minimum position, pushing the trip/reset button, starts the beeper drive circuit check {one beep), and the gauge drive circuit check again.
The check cannot be started until the gauge needles return to the minimum position.

The Communication Line Gheck:
In the seif-diagnosis mode, after the odo/trip LCD segments check, the self-diagnosis starts the communication line check.
lf all segments comes on, the communication line is OK.
lf the word" Error" is indicated, there is a malfunction in the communication line between the gauge assembly, the multiplex control unit, and the ECM/PCM,

Ending the Self-diagnosis Function:
Turn the ignition switch OFF.

Note: lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1 .2 mph (2 km/h), the self-diagnosis function ends.
-----------------------

If everything works correctly during the check, check your VSS (vehicle speed sensor)

Hi i have a 97 hyundai tiburon,my car lose power after4300rpm on dyno run graph,what could be the cause? And i cant plug a diagnosis machine it doesnt pick up machine


Sort of depends on what you mean by "lose power". It is quite normal for most engines to have lower torque at high revs than at lower revs. Air intake isn't as efficient, each cylinder charge is smaller, etc.
You might want to put in a new air cleaner, check fuel filter and pressure...

What is the best economical car to buy to be used fro family as well as tourist? If i want to buy a car ranging from 3 to 5 lakhs and i want to use it for family outings


buy a car ranging from 3 to 5 lakhs and i want to use it for family outings
You can consider the Indica, you can check some motor ranges on the link. I work as a marketing manager in automobile industry. The Indica is low on investment and does look good as a family car and as a rental car too. It runs low on fuel too and is inexpensive to maintain. I think what you need for that price is a car which can be reliable and friendly enough with the family and can also return profits when run as a 'tourist' vehicle. Your only option is the new Tata Indigo CS LS BSIII. It falls into the sub 5 lakh car category. It has a boot for luggage. It is a sedan, technically. It is safe and reliable. It has almost miserly maintenance and running costs. Fuel efficiency is excellent; If possible buy the DiCOR for better fuel efficiency.

Engine hestitation at speed of 35mph


35 is right around the shift point from 2nd to 3rd gear so keep in mind that your dropping around 3 to 4 hundred RPM or more. Worn plugs don't like to go from lean to rich as much as they did when they were new. Putting in new plugs is a good idea anyway and its relatively cheap. I would say the odds are in your favor. The 4.6L with auto trans have proven to be quite reliable, however you really won't know untill you do it and drive it.
