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

I bought a 1994 Toyota 4x4 truck with manual transmission. The person I bought it off of said that the speedo did not work. When I crawled under the truck I noticed it has an electonic plug at the transfer case where the speedometer cable normally attaches. The problem is there was no wires to attach to the plug. I have searched for the wires and even traced and stripped the cable harness up in the engine compartment looking for wires for speedo with no luck. (I went to junk yard and cut plug an

How do you replace the dashboard light bulbs in a 1986 Ford Crown Vic? I removed front facia+panel, and unbolted the speedometer unit (plastic cover, etc) but cannot get the panel out to get to the bulbs. Doesn't appear to be any access from under dash. I suspect the speedo cable is keeping the dash unit from coming out and I am afraid to pull to hard on the panel for fear of dislodging the speedo cable and not being able to get it back in. Help would be appreciated
