Check all the fuses and fuse-able links in the system, and also check all the connections to your fuse panels, check all engine and body grounds,
you have multiple systems that are separate from themselves, (no direct connection between those circuits) only a large fuse or fuse-able link can cause that condition, or a burned connector or wire harness that has joined the circuits together, in that case the harness must be replaced or repaired

1994 prizm speedometer eratic tried 3 used clusters and replaced sensor New schematic shows ckt runs through ECM is this a possibility


automatic or stick shift car???????
prizm = toyota corolla, (vast parts to be had and books on same)
1994
what are the symptoms, not guessing I need all facts on symptoms.
lets see. 1.6L engine or 1.8L , sorry they are not the SAME>
so what engine is there?

fuses test good?
car drives perfectly, all other electrics run ok , all lighting ok.
bad cluster , well what is bad, tacho, speedo, odometer, gauges, warning lamps. what?
say all things in the cluster that work and not work.
then and only then can any one give good advice.
ill run with only speedo needle bounces,
most 90s cars love to do that, its a fact. (high miles)
if need speedo and dead odometer that is unique.
that is correct more modern cars, all deleted that speedo cable
long long ago and is now a 10cent wire from cluster to ECU.
as did yours.
since the ECU knows speed already why not let it do the job for free. and did.
end history class but, the odd duck cars exist.

first thing to do is learn that the cars ECU has flash codes
you jumper 2 pins on a DLC, and the ECU flashes the CEL lamp with codes, if the code for VSS is set BINGO transmission VSS is dead, or erratic. code 42 tells you VSS is bad. does it flash 42?

The ECU uses speed, to calculate load and fuel better , knowing this facts.

but in your case its 1/2 true, the odd duck, the toyota way in 1994
is to have the VSS sensor drive the cluster
and the cluster speed drives the ECU.
(have book in hand from mitchells online, so can you of you look)

V3 is bad, (or as in all electrics, (laws) wires./loose/bad, there.
VSS means veh. speed sensor
my guess is you will ask where is it, like all here do not wanting
to pop 15bucks to read at mitchels.
At 55 mph:= 48 Hz ( the signal speed on it) square wave.

where it is depends on auto or stickshift
but its FWD and this sensor in on the side with axle ring gear
i guess.
the 3 wire sensor with R-Y, R-G and R-L color wires is a BINGO.

2001 1.8T a3. Why is it hard to start first thing in morning or if left for awhile? .


Does it take a long time of cranking to start?
a) if you can, check if you fuel system holds pressure; should hold pressure for a long time
b) a failed/bad coolant temperature sensor can send a wrong signal to the ECU (often telling the computer that the engine is -60 degree cold for example), which can result in poor cold starts. One way of verifying is connection with VCDS (VAGcom) and read the coolant temperature in the engine module AND in the instrument cluster (and compare with temperature shown in the insturment cluster. All 3 should be 'reasonably close' and realistic.

Fabia 1.4 MPI ECU problem?


I really doubt that the problem is the PCM (ECU), that is the least likely thing that would cause these codes. The causes will take a factory manual and good test equipment that can read live mainstream engine and sensor data.

Instrument cluster


Have you had it plugged into a diagnostic machine (PIWIS). First to read out fault codes and then to monitor live data from ecu to see if its sending rpm, speed, temp and fuel signals from sensors. If all this is been send to instrument cluster then looks like a cluster fault. Do the lights still work and do the rest of the illuminations come on when the lights are switched on?

Truck will be running fine, then all of a sudden it will completely shut off. After we wait a few minutes and pump the clutch and make sure it is all the way to the floor it will start, sometimes. S


You need the engine computer scanned for fault codes, i thank you have an ignition control problem like a module or distributor pickup coil issue. These parts whenthey fail should leave fault cdes so get them read.
Next, the check engine light will pause shortly followed by the second digit of the trouble code. For example if the check engine light blinks once and pauses followed by six blinks the trouble code number would be 16. If no code is present the check engine light will stay one constantly. To restart code gathering turn the ignition key to the "off" position, wait three minutes and turn the ignition key back "on" again without starting the engine. Remove the jumper wire once code gathering is complete. To clear code after the repairs have been made remove the negative battery cable for one minute and reconnect.

I have a 2000, 1.5lt Hyundai Accent. I have just changed the ECU, with exact part number replacement. The key warning dash light flashes for 5 seconds. There is no fuel pump noise when ignition is switched...


The ECU has to be programmed to the car. Some places do this with the ECU out you will need the VIN number and the mileage. some places have to have the car and ECU to reprogram it. The flashes are for the security system. It is not sending the correct signal to the ECU, so it shut down the car.

My 2000 Grand Prix GTP runs great. However, the gas mileage has dropped to maybe 120-130 miles per tank and at idle there is a very strong odor of gas inside and around the car..noticed no drips on...


Following list of possible faults should help:-

Coolant sensor - engine is signaled as being 'cold' all the time, not just at start up, causing ECU to set longer injection cycle

? Low coolant level can prevent sensor being able to detect coolant temperature

? Faulty 'open' thermostat allows coolant to circulate without regulation and perhaps prevents the engine from achieving normal running temperatures.


FPR - broken diaphragm allows fuel to enter the vacuum line and then into the inlet manifold. Additional source of fuel makes the fuel air mix richer causing a faster and lumpy idle.


Vacuum leak - 'high oxygen' signal from O2 sensor causes ECU to set longer injection cycle.


O2 sensor - 'high oxygen' sensor error causes ECU to set longer fuel injection cycle


MAF - 'over reads' in error the amount of air entering causing ECU to set longer fuel injection cycle


IAT - 'under reads' in error the temperature of incoming air causing ECU to set longer fuel injection cycle

it reads the zero mileage if its new but the mileage is recorded on the ECU and this cannot be changed

Electrical Alarm


TSSM or Turn Signal Security Module is more than likely the cause. Look to see if key and or eng light in instrument cluster comes back on after initial 4 second pwr up goes out. The key light coming back on for ruffley 8 seconds and then off shows historical trouble code has been logged in ECU. must take to shop to clear codes.
