SOURCE: 91s-15 digital dash speedo odo yes gauges no

no tsbs on that but if you can take out the circuit board and clsely look at the conections to the board(at the ppoint where the plug goes in to the board) see if there are any cracks in the soldering,i have seen this problem before and that was the cause of it.

SOURCE: hi i have a peugeot 405 diesel and the speedo

I had a similar problem with my old peugeot 405 diesel, something electrical was shorting and actually sparking in the engine compartment which in my case the garage fixed very easily. Same symptoms, the speedo flickered at low speeds but stopped at higher speed.

SOURCE: What do you mean cluster contacts bad !Whats the solution?

Remove the speedometer head unit, and check the soldered joints on the back. It's a common problem with these and some Chrysler products. "Randomly" is when the crack closes and makes contact, like if you hit the top of the dash and it starts working again. The speedometer head cluster.

SOURCE: the trip computer, mileage, and compass died on

I have the same thing happen to my '03 super duty F-350 6.0 and fixed it. Grab the entire console unit, lights and all and just pull straight down. Start with the side opposite the front windshield. It is a bit hard, but there are clips holding it. Pull the one plug off that is powering the console. On the back there is a large black plate with a black plug on it and a smaller black plate with a red plug on it. You will be working with the larger one. Pull off a white plug that is on the side of this larger black plate also remove the black plug on this one as well. Next unscrew the black plate and open it up by gently pulling on the clips. Be careful as there are a few resistors that might fall out. These are the problem. Once you open it up, you will see four resistors that all look the same. These come desoldered and cause this problem. Get a soldering iron and just hold it on one side of the resistor. If you look at it closely, you should see that one side of the resistor is no longer touching the circuit board. Do this to all the resistor sides that are not touching the circuit board. Hold the iron on this point for around 4 seconds or so. After removing the iron, check to see if the resistor stayed down. If it did, move on to the next one. DO NOT push on the resistor to see if it is good, just look to see if it is touching the board. Put it all back together and you are done. I did this to repair mine and it worked great.

SOURCE: over head outside temperature gauge and compass has quit.

The overhead console is quite prone to internal failure. Dim, intermittent, or dead displays are a common symptom of an internal failure. We offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee. Check it out:

Didital Instrument cluster; all guages work except

You might try to find another cluster from a wrecking yard and install it yourself. Otherwise, it sounds like they have you just where they want you. Good luck!

My mileage meter stopped working

If the speedo work and the odometer doenst you'll have to get a new instrument cluster. If speedo and odo both dont work, its likely the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission.

The oddometer works but the speedometer doesn't in my 1992 Dodge Ram pickup. The gear that sits inside the transmission is not stripped and engages fine. Can the problem be somewhere other than the...

Could be a bad cluster. If one is cable driven, and the other electric. You could have a bad speed sensor in the transmission which will make the speedo not work.
