Ignition switch and wire harness for ignition switch. My husband did both. I was losing dash gauges intermittently and overdrive. Now that is fixed and six months later looks like I need the multi function switch(turn signal, wipers, cruise lever). My husband has to take that all apart again for this problem. My turn signal blinker noise won't shut off. Driving me crazy.

2005 kia sedona dash board gauge lights wont turn on

Is it only the gauges or the all the instruments and heater controls? The first place I'd look at will be the dimmer switch. Normally the instrument lighting shares the same circuit as the parking/valet lights.

How do I stop tranny from shifting at high rpms?

Service the transmission and check the tension spring on the valve body to insure its not broken. Also on the side of the transmission there is a dash pod that is vacuum driven. Insure it works and the vacuum is hooked up. There is a shift cable that runs to the from the trans to the engine to kick down the shift on hard acceleration , this also sets your shift points. The dash pod is also adjustable with a small flat blade screw driver thru the vacuum inlet. If the RPM reeves up and then shifts, it is slipping and in need of rebuild.

2000 durango running rough at idle and higher rpms, no codes, transmission shifting out on high side, 1st gear? 5.9L R/T package

No dash lights at all? Try replacing your speed sensor on your rear differential. Its a very small sensor on the top of the diff case. They are very cheap to replace so you wont be out much money if this solution doesnt work.

If you select drive on the shifter and drive the car does the transmission shift out of 1st gear? If not. I had the same problem. Take the cover off around the steering column, on the left side there is a wire connector that pulls loose when the steering column is tilted up and down. I plugged mine back together and DONT TILT the steering column ,you wont have any problems.

In order to get the radio out on a 2004 suburban, does the dash have to come apart or will the faceplate come off?

Put the parking brake on and shift transmission(so you can have the clearance to re move the bezel) into 1st gear and pull the bezel around the radio and gauge cluster. It should unsnap and remove it. The factory radio should now easily be removed by taking out the three screws(2 on left and 1 on right).

The oddometer works but the speedometer doesn't in my 1992 Dodge Ram pickup. The gear that sits inside the transmission is not stripped and engages fine. Can the problem be somewhere other than the...

Could be a bad cluster. If one is cable driven, and the other electric. You could have a bad speed sensor in the transmission which will make the speedo not work.

The dash gauges not working

Check for bad solder joint on back of instrument cluster where the connector attaches to it. One or two of the pins are probably not properly soldered. Takes about 30 minutes to fix if it's like mine.
