Depending on whether your speedo is mechanical (uses a cable), or electronic (uses an electrical wire to carry the signal from the sender), I would look it (what's in between the speedo and trans speed sender) before replacing the instrument panel. A good service manual that includes a dash wiring diagram should help trouble shoot this problem.
Good luck.

Why is there no brake fluid to bleeder screws on maqstercylinder in a 1996 buick skylark


Because you don't need them?

Have you ever bleed a master cyl & then
walked it to a car?

That is one real mess

Once you start to bleed the brakes, the air moves
to each wheel,no need to ever bleed a master

If you were to bench bleed it,then the air would be back in there,
as you hooked up the 2 brake lines

Have to experience those things & have a very perceptive
view of how things work,kind of a gift your born with.

96 buick skylark runs about 3 seconds then dies.whats wrong?


Fuel pumps don't slowly go out, they either work or they don't. I recommend replacing the mass air flow sensor, which is the square metal piece that's mounted in the middle of the big air tube that runs from the air filter housing to the intake. I replace the front head on mine and during the reassembly, I forgot to plug the wire back into the MAF sensor and had a similar problem. I would have it tested first if possible. If u have any other questions abt this car, feel free to send em to me directly, especially if yours has the 3.1 V6.

1996 buick skylark fan operatiion - How to test it?


Take out the temperture sensor switch and put it into very hot water to see if it works. Plug the hole with something to stop losing water. If the fan doesn't work put some voltage on the motor and try that. If that doesn't work it is the fan motor. If it does then it is a faulty switch.

Do you have an anti-theft system on this car. That is about the only other thing I could think of besides bad relay or fuse. Since crank sensor and module are good.

My 89 Buick Skylark speedometer reads 10 mph fast.


there is no censor for speed on a buick skylark.
i have an 88 same motor and everything
u jumped a tooth on the gear that drives the needle.
u have to pop the dash off and get to the problem behind the main gauge and the needle assembley should come right out. either that or you stripped the gear and its just going wherever it pleases.

1996 Honda Accord Speedometer


You, of coarse, have to remove the Instrument panel. There are I bellieve 3 or 4 screws to remove it. All the meters in the Intrument panel are connected electrically by the screws to the PC board. Do you have a replacement one or do you still have to purchase one? I can tell you step by step how to get the dash apart if you want. I had to do this many time with my car. I have a 96 Honda Accord EX. When you have a car like I do with about 200,000 miles on it, I get a lot of practice replacing just about everything inside the vehicle.
