    My problem is I can't find 2 of the 4 screws that hold the gauge panel. Must I remove the air vents to get to them? Where will I get a diagram or repair manual for the KZJ78? Thanks so far.

There
are six screws that hold the dashboard cover that goes over the instruments,
then four screws that hold the gauge panel itself. Unplug the three wire
harnesses on back of panel, then unclip the speedometer cable by pressing
the two spring tabs around the round plug (release the speedo cable from the
clip inside the engine bay on the firewall will give extra slack in the
cable which will help a lot when trying
to reconnect).

Dash board odometer/speedometer squeaking. How to remove dashboard? Cable loose or need grease?


Somewhat depends on the make/year. Older cars/trucks had a cable from the transmission to the speedo/odo. These can wear out and/or need grease, and can squeak. Newer cars/trucks replace the cable with electronics, and aren't likely to squeak...
If you have a cable, greasing can be messy. The one time I saw this done was on a '60s car, and the mechanic removed the cable from the back of the speedo, pulled the center almost all the way out of the outer covering, and applied white grease all along the center while pushing it back in. Never squeaked again.

Odometer not working


Could be that speedo cable has become disconnected or that the inner shaft has broken. The speed cable is connected between the back of the instrument cluster and the left side of the transmission. Check under the car that the cable is securely fitted to the side of the transmission. Disconnect it and and check on the condition of the square drive flexible shaft. The spinning of this inner shaft is what conveys the output shaft speed of the transmission to the instruments. The instrument cluster can be removed but pushing a length of coat hanger wire with right angle turn on its end between the the cluster and the dashboard surround. Turn the coat hanger to hook behind the cluster and pull forward to remove it. Try several points around the cluster. It is best to disconnect the speedo drive cable to withdraw the cluster (after electrical connections have been disconnected. check that the speedo cable is secure to the back of the instruments. If you remove the cluster completely follow the path of the speedo cable. If you have to replace the cable, tying a length of string to the speedo cable end first and posting the string down the cable path will help the re-installation enormously. Simply pull the string whilst reinstalling the instrument cluster until the end of the speedo can be got hold of. Refit the speedo cable to the transmission only after the instrument cluster is back in place.

Half the light is out on the information console in my 2006 Toyota 4runner. Can I fix that?


Blown bulbs , easy!.
Remove the shroud under the steering column , ( the one where the fuse box and bonnet release is situated)
This will give you access to the bottom screws of the binacle around the speedo ( other screws up from underneath above the speedo)
Once binacle removed you will see the screws holding the speedo in, remove them and ( with the steering tilted fully down) remove the speedo head, there should be 3 or 4 electrical plugs in the back of the speedo ( don't worry they only fit one way and can't be muddled up )
In the back of the speedo are twist clips retaining the bulbs, remove and replace blown bulbs.
Reverse procedure to reinstall speedo.
A magnetic phillips head screwdriver is handy to get the screws back in without loosing them into the back of the dashboard.

Speedo does not work, replaced the speed sensor and still not working


You will have to inspect the speedo cable that goes from the back of the meter through the car's firewall and unto the transmission. There could be a break between the transmission and the firewall or at the back of the dashboard.

Speedometer Cable replacement


A universal kit will work for your application. Most of the time the center cable is what is damaged.

1. Remove speedometer cable from transmission
2. Remove speedo gear retainer and remove speedo gear.
3. Pull out cable from sheath - If broken you will only get part of it
4. Remove instrument panel and pull out section of cable still trapped in cable sheath if applicable.

For re install follow directions on package.

Pointers

1. Cable appears un-damaged: Check to make sure the speedo gear is not damaged where the cable enters it. Then also check the back of the speedo head cable hole for damage.
2. You can measure you two broken pieces to arrive at an appropriate length for ordering purposes.
3. Make sure this is well lubricated on install otherwise the speedo can jump up and down or damage the new cable.

Speedo is going haywire. needle goes all over the place. 2005 chevy 1500hd.


Check first the status of the cable that connects the transmission and the speedometer through the back of the dashboard. You should be able to see it under the hood at the driver side. Check if the cable is loose or needs replacement. If that checks out ok you may want to check the back of the dashboard if the connection there is still OK.
