Gauges work sporadicly

I have a 1989 jeep wrangler. The gauge cluster that has the Temp., voltage, fuel, oil and clock in it. The clock and oil pressure work, but the others work some times and some times they don't. Could this be a grounding problem?

I would first check the connector at the rear of the gauges, it might just have to be exercised (plug/unplug it a few times) to clean debris, corrosion and dust (be careful as I remember this uses a membrane circuit board).

Fuel gauge sensor


Yes, the sending unit is in the tank. If you unplug the connector at the tank and ground the gauge's sender unit wire to metal, with key on, the dash gauge should jump to full or near full. This verifies the dash gauge is working properly, and the problem is with the sender unit in the tank. If the gauge doesn't move when grounded, then the gauge or wiring from tank to gauge is not correct.
Good luck.

Hello, I just purchased a used 1989 Jeep Wrangler and the instrument panel doesn't work (speedometer, fuel gauge, etc). Is the remedy something I could do myself? And what would the remedy be?


on the older jeeps the gauge cluster with the fuel gauge, clock and temp cauge is controled ny a riboin cable on the back. when i got mine theis didnt work either, the cable was dirty. its real easy to take them out all you will need is a phillips screw driver and a q tip and some rubbing alchole. clean it up and see if that does it.

I have a 1964 mustang with a six cyl. all gauges dont work. put in a new oil pressure sending unit, has a new fuel tank with sending unit,new temp. sending unit wires are all hooked up. I need help finding...


There is a voltage regulator on the back of the instrument cluster printed circuit board. Chances are this has burned out if no gauges work. You'll need to remove the instrument cluster to get to it.

Gas guage and water temp gauge do not work clock works alt works oil works guages work just not gas and water temp ?????


On the rear of the instrument cluster there should be a resistor. This is how the fuel and temp guages are limited to a certain voltage decreasing the power to them so that they dont burn out. These (voltage limiters) resistors are available seperately from the dealership.

Gauges do not work....


Probably lost the ground from the instrument cluster. Unfortunately, it's under the dashboard and hard to get to. Possible cracked circuit board.
