Dash boar is electric. the fuses for that are on almost under the dashboard. like in fron of the drivers left leg there is a cover you have to pull off. but you may need to replace the cluster.

I take it that you only have 1 speedometer and that reads miles per hour or car speed . The left speedo? is in reality a tachometer and reads the engine revolutions per minute. When the engine is cold (before it reaches operating temperature) the CPU will keep the rpm's above 1000 (1 x1000) and when that temperature is reached the idle speed is reduced to normal operating rpm's. So yes it is normal. All you need to do is know the difference and the meaning of all the gauges.

Have the system tested for fault codes, you may have a bad vehicle speed sensor.
Here is how you can run a code test without a scanner on most Nissan cars.

How do I change my Speedometer from MPH to KPH

If it's digital there's a button somewhere I'm sure. However if it's a printed read out, then the cluster has to be changed over...however it should also read both. This is a common issue for service men bringing vehicles back from Europe as did I in 1998. Hope this helps !

Electrical equipment not working 1997 Nissan

Have you check the fuse to see if the fuse for the gauges are bad, also there is a fuse box under the hood that may contain additional fuses if one is not located in the fuse compartment under the dash.

You have an electronic speedometer (no cable); get a 'donor' instrument cluster from another (Nissan) vehicle and replace the speedo. OR If your mechanically/electronically inclined, you can replace justs the 'guts', i.e., motor and circuit board (might as well replace the odometer motor while your at it) to keep your original mileage. There is a step-by-step guide on the web how to do it.
