Won't start turn ignition on does not crank gauges work battery is good already cleaned battery post and checked all fuses the voltage gauge in dash shows to be a little weak and the heater blower is not real strong but the battery is fully charged battery light in dash lights up also?
The best bet is to go to the started and check to see the signal wire is getting current when you try to crank it, if not you locate the signal wire on the starter which is the small wire and jump it with power, if it is not doing anything then your ... 2000 GMC Sierra

The check gauges light came on our 2003 Dodge Durango then shortly after that when my husband punched the gas to pass someone, the engine shut down. The battery was still working-dash lights still on and heater was on. When trying to restart would just get click for the starter engaging but nothing would happen. Checked battery voltage and it was showing about 460V for a 600V battery. Wouldn't start with a charger hooked to the battery.
The correct scale is CCA (Cold Cranking Amp).460cca out of 600cca is not good.Check the tag / label on the battery. The two digits follow by the GROUP number is the XX month rating.24488 ... Dodge Durango
My 7.3 L diesel ford f-250 shows the battery light (check charge system) on in the dash. I tried to drive it and the voltage gauge started dropping into the 10-11 v range. I replaced the alternator with a re-manufactured one and then charged the batteries and started the truck. Now the red battery light is still on but when I rev the motor to around 3200 RPM it dims to ALMOST off but comes back on bright when I let off the pedal. The alternator is showing on my hand held volt meter with

How do you remove the dash board around the gauges etc. I am trying to get at the circuit board that controls the tact and the odometer read out. One of the sites says there is just a loose solder joint on the board and to resolder it and that should solve the problem. It is a 1997 chrylster sebring convertible.
Not 100% sure on that but normally the trim that surrounds the cluster will pull off, if no screws or buttons covering screws are obvious, then you 'll have access to screws holding cluster in. ... 1997 Chrysler Sebring

I have a 1990 Lincoln Mark VII, the air ride was removed and now there is a short somewhere causing voltage regs to fry and draining the battery. We found a connection under the hood (passenger side) and once we disconnected it the problem went away but car dash lights do not cycle at ignition, climate control lights flash contsant but system works, no heat, but control wise. The turn signals do not flash on the dash panel. I am stuck. Please help/
After replacing the air system on your Mark, you should have turned the switch off in the trunk and left the air pump intact.....that way the system does not know that anything has been done....you can then just remove the bags and tape off the lines ... 1990 Lincoln Mark VII
Dash My battery ran out after leaving my trunk light on accidentally (my trunk won't close because of a recent accident) I jump started my car and removed the light bulb to make sure it didn't happen again. When I restarted my car, the speedometer, tachometer and gas gauge won't work. I didn't know if this was a fuse issue or a larger problem. I tried reinstalling the trunk bulb but now that won't work either..Please help Thanks

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country 4.0. I've had good luck until now. Recently, the check gauges light came on and the voltage meter on my dash flatlined and the Jeep died on the side of the road.

This lasted for about a week then th

I just bought a 98' Tahoe and the gas/fuel gauge does not work. Checked the fuses and tried a new one for the gauges fuse and the gauge worked but then went back to empty. When I removed the fuse the battery gauge quit working but works fine when the fuse is in. Why would replacing the fuse cause the fuel gauge to work then quit?

My 1998 plymouth neon expresso - dash board cluster gauges: the speedometor, gas gauge, and rpm gauge sometimes work and other times do not.

300zx dash re-installation I had enough trouble getting the dash board out myself. I've had a few people tell me that I had to place the cluster in first, and then try and put the dash board back in, so I decided to try that and now, when I go to screw in the bottom bolts on the dash board the cluster pops back up. Is there something I missing? Maybe the cluster needs to go back farther? Only diagram I had found was for the removal process and trying to do it backwards didn't work. Plllleaaase
