I just replaced the battery on my 2000 Ford Focus SE Sedan and now the speedometer does not work. The speedometer needle is stuck past the '140' mark and has not budged at all. I checked the fuse for the instrument panel and that is ok. The fuel and temperature gauges are still working.

I have a 1991 Dodge B350 van that is having gauge issues. Neither the fuel gauge nor the temperature gauge is working, the spedometer is not working either. I have power getting to the board that these are all connected to, and I can get the fuel gauge needle to drop with no resistance, but do not know how to test the temperature gauge or the spedometer. Any hints on why these gauges are not working or how to test them? Grounding issues? The fuse is good & all power to the units is shut down whe

Faulty speedometer I had my 2000 VW Golf steam cleaned a month ago and since then I have had an intermittent fault with the speedo and fuel gauge. The speedo worked for a while and then just cuts out and the fuel gauge returns to empty and the re-fuel light and buzzer comes on. After one month the speedo has given up and the fuel gauge now fluctuates when I go round corners. Can anyone suggest a cure?
