    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.

My left side of the dashboard light went out. How do I fix it


you need to find proper bulb type to replace burned one. in general you need t10 or t5 type bulbs.

before removing dashboard, you need to remove battery cable from (-) terminal.
removal of dashboards differ from car model to car model. basically there are upper screws and you need to remove dash board bezel/trims first.if you remove bezel and screws, there will be several screws holding dash board in its place. try no to drop screws when removing them. and be gentle while moving the dashboard. there are two or three sockets at back. you may need to remove them by releasing their clips. and you will see bulb holders holding bulbs in dashboard in general 4 or 5 bulbs are used to illuminate gauges. remove them by turning covers and put new bulbs in it. intallation is the reverse order. do not forget to clip sockets back.

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.

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.

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.
