SOURCE: INSTRUMENT CLUSTER

The red electrial connector on the main circuit board (of instrument cluster panel) has one and/or several soldered pins that have broken away or become loose at the soldered area. The soldered connections may look o.k., however, under a magnifying glass you can see a circular crack all around the protruding soldered pin. Fire up the soldering iron- use a fine point, add a tad of new rosin core solder and fix the crack. There may be trouble codes associated with this condition: P1695 and/or P1698; when you go to pull the Instument cluster out of the dash, jiggle to wire connector at the back of the IC with key 'on', and look at the odometer; if it flashes on/off, this is most likely the problem

SOURCE: instrument panel cluster gauges and odometer has stopped working

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.

Does the 98 Ford F-150 5.4 triton have two coolant sending units? I found the one on the intake and replaced it and still no gauge.


Has CHT - cylinder head temp. sensor . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM sends engine temp info on serial data network to the instrument cluster . I/C has a microprocessor inside . Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not OBD2 codes , B - body codes . The gauge could be the problem , which means replacing the instrument cluster .
Engine coolant temperature information is received by the instrument cluster from the PCM over the SCP network. Temperatures over 121°C (275°F) will display hot (H). If the engine coolant temperature data is missing or invalid for five seconds, the instrument cluster will move the engine coolant temperature gauge below the cold (C) position.
The best way to diagnose this is with a scan tool , factory or a professional type . Know how the system works and not replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose .
U1073 D073 SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Engine Coolant PCM CARRY OUT the PCM self-test.
  • A single gauge does not return to zero with the ignition switch off
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . TEST the system for normal operation.

  • Incorrect temperature gauge indication
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • PCM.
  • Engine coolant temperature sensor.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test F .

I should also point out that if the temp sensor were bad the vehicle may not run right .
Using the factory scan tool
Trigger instrument cluster active command ENGCOOLNT. Monitor the engine coolant temperature gauge while adjusting the ENGCOOLNT active command to read 50% and 100%.
  • Does the temperature gauge start at cold, move to half at 50%, and full hot at 100%?
Yes REFER to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

No INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . REPAIR the circuit. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop !

Where is speedo head for 1997 pathfinder


Do you mean by the speedo head the VSS or vehicle speed sensor that is on the tail shaft end of the gearbox with two wires coming out of a connector and which sends an electronic signal to the instrument cluster which displays a reading onthe speedo?

Can i change out the mph instrument cluster to kph cluster in a 2005 nissan pathfinder


if the speed range between the two are different then along with the instrument cluster you will have to change the VSS "vehicle speed sensor" in the transmission as it will read incorrectly if you do not.

Tachometer 1997 pathfinder erratic RPM


I just solved this problem on my 1997 with 183K miles . First I checked all of the following:1) sensor on distributor; 2) wires from distributor to back of instrument cluster; 3) connections of wires to instrument cluster; 4) 4 screens going through the soft circuit board to tachometer; 5) the SOLUTION- I removed the tachometer from the instrument cluster and looked at the hard circuit board of the tachometer. On one side there is a plastic square housing about 1/4 x 3/8" soldered to the circuit board that has a plastic screw facing out. it was lose, so I tighten it and now my tachometer is OK. A simple test to check for this type of an error is hit your dash when the tachometer is erratic. if you see a fluctuation based on the tap on the dash you either have a lose connection of some type like this one. Fix is easy, once you have the instrument cluster out you only have to remove the four screws on the back of the cluster holding the tachometer in place. Remove the tachometer carefully and tighten the plastic screw being careful not to over tighten.

P1698. This code is what caused my 98 caravan to fail emissions. What does this code mean?


Remove your instrument cluster and check the solder joints on the back of the cluster main board. You may have to flex the board to see the cracks in the solder.

98 Nissan Pathfinder with gauge glitches


Its very common on a lot of cars, the instrument cluster has a number of connectors soldered onto the circuit board, the solder joints get loose or are bad to begin with and you will get these kinds of intermittent display issues. They are a pain to fix because the entire cluster has to be removed, just to solder the joints! The soldering is the easy part, re/re of the unit is the real pain. If you go through the trouble make sure you also inspect every solder joint on the board while its out..you don't want to do it a second time!
