This problems accure in the Tribeca, some Acuras, honda Odessey, all those clusters use the same memory chip 93c66, if you mess up the programming, usually it happens when you trying to adjuste the mileage. You need to find a file from exact the same vehicle and load it into your chip. If your car is under the factory warranty and you try to take the car to the dealer and try to replace the cluster under the warranty they might install a new cluster with 0 miles on it, and put the stiker saying that the real mileage is what ever is on odo+ whatever you had before. That might affect your car value in a negative way
Check the instrument cluster fuse if its good change the instrument cluster.

I've got a 1991 BMW 525i which has done 253,000 km. It's been a good car but, the instrument panel on the dashboard has gone silly over the past couple of weeks. When I first start the car in the morning, nothing works - i.e. no fuel gauge, temperature gauge, no vacuum gauge, no speedo, no tach. I drive for about 1 km and the euel, temperature and vacuum gauges start to flicker like crazy. Affter about 1 to 2 km they all start to work properly. Then at about 2-3 km the speedo and tach go crazy.


This is just a rough guess, but i think it would be the battery or the alternator. Some part store have testers that they will check both for free. ... BMW 525

2000 Sunfire The vehicle starts and runs fine, but intermittenly the dash warning lights come on, the speedo, tach,fuel gauge,heat guage, a/c all stop working. It's as if the vehicle is sitting with the ignition on, but not started. However, the car continues to run fine, does not stall out and if I pull over and shut it down, it restarts no problem. The above problem may or not be there but again intermittently it will reoccur.


This sounds like you may have a bad connection at the battery. Inspect and clean all connections going to the battery with baking soda and water. Once rinsed, use a wire brush to make sure it is clean and reattatched snuggly. These have side post bat ... 2000 Pontiac Sunfire

The instrument cluster on my 2003 Chevy Cavalier has been gradualy going out over the past year. first the temp gauge stopped working, then the speedo would read higher than actual speed and now it is dead and now the tac is dead too. The fuel gauge was the only thing working for the longest time and now it is dead too. Now that the fuel gauge is dead, i cannot put gas in the car even when it is empty. it spits it back out like it's full. The gass backflow problem should be caused by the vent va
