Answers :

Ignition switch and wire harness for ignition switch. My husband did both. I was losing dash gauges intermittently and overdrive. Now that is fixed and six months later looks like I need the multi function switch(turn signal, wipers, cruise lever). My husband has to take that all apart again for this problem. My turn signal blinker noise won't shut off. Driving me crazy.

Just replaced a transmission on our f150 and now the gauges(oil and temp) on the dash will not work and the transmission is shifting hard. Also the abs plug on the master cylander burnt when we put the battery on. Is this a sign there is a short in the brake wiring causing the rest of the problems?

The tach and speedometer in my 95 Cheyenne work intermittently. This is causing my transmission to go into ''limp'' mode. The check gauges light comes on and the light for my gear selection is also out. The gear light will come on with the ignition on but will go out after the truck starts.Any ideas, dash problem or wiring?

5 to 10 minutes after the sensor triggers my headlights on, my headlights go out and my gauges on my dash begin to jump up every couple seconds. There is a clicking sound when it happens and my lights dim (radio display, dash lighting and ceiling lights). The battery gauge dips down as the other gauges tick up. I never have any problems driving when the headlights are not on, what could the problem be and how is it fixed?

92 honda Transmission problems I recently bought a 92 honda accord with an automatic transmission. the car runs fine in drive, i have driven it through town and at highway speeds. however, it will not shift into reverse. also, the speedometer and rpm gauges are not working. i was wondering if these two problems are coincidental, or if maybe there is a wiring problem that is causing the tranny not to shift into reverse and also making the speedometer and rpm gauge not work.


The speedometer and rpm are another problem infact those two maybe seperate from each other, You will have to have the trans removed and repaired or replaced with a used unit.Older vehicles like that usually can match up computer wise that is. Speedo ... Honda Accord

Pontiac sunfire 2004. With the key off, the speedometer indicates 25 km/h, the tachometer indicates 2500 rpm, and the temerature gauge is pretty hight. When we turn the key on everything seems to go back to normal exept for the temperature gauge sometimes it stays hight and sometimes it does not. Is that a common problem on these model? Oh and by the way the owner of the car did a little tap test on the dash bord and everything went back to normal. Please tell me what is the problem?

1993 GMC Safari wiring transmission problem. After a couple minutes of driving (this could be anywhere from 3 minutes up to maybe 2 hours), my van will be unable to shift beyond second gear. I had a local mechanic take a look, and they supposedly spent quite a bit of time diagnosing the problem. They eventually concluded that it was a wiring issue somewhere beneath the dash, and quoted me roughly $1000 to fix it, which seems pretty astronomical (even if I understand that dismantling the dash

No. It is not the NSS. If that were the case it would have lights. I would say it is the ECU (Engine Control Unit) or the cars computer. The NSS may have shorted and caused the ECU to go out. So I think that you are looking at more than one problem. ... Chevrolet Malibu

Strange Transmission Downshift That's Preventable I just purchased my 2004 Nissan Maxima and have 68K miles. I am having a problem where the RPM gauge drops down to idle speed (i.e. 750rpm) and then returns back to a "normal" RPM speed when the transmission is performing its downshift from 5th to 4th gear. (i.e. It appears that the engine loses speed and then jumps back up). The problem does not happen all of the time and only happens during the 5th to 4th transition. Ultimately, when I let my f

1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 5 speed manual, non-turbo. Speedo and odometer stopped working. Replaced the sensor and it did not fix problem. Replaced the gauge and it did not fix the problem. Was told that whatever drives the sensor in the trans must not be working. Car needed a new transmission, anyway, so we replaced the transmission. Speedo still is not working. Mechanic is very good with Mitsubishi but says he is stumped. Odd thing is that there is actually some movement in the Odometer

I have a 69 chevelle SS. I just replaced the original wiring in the dash with a new wiring harness for factory gauges. I can't get the tach, oil pressure, alt or blinkers to work. The wiring harness in the engine compartment was replaced a couple of years ago and I went with the harness for factory gauges and tach. When I plug the pink wire into the distributer, the car won't start. Once I unplug, the car will start. Has anyone had this problem? What was the problem?
