but i have one problem theres no reading coming from the temp guage or petrol one either !

but all the other guages on the speedo are working fine.

any clues to what might be wrong ?

thanks yvonne

 

 

have you damaged the plug or ribbon circuit/push connections on the rear?

 

walk us through what you did when fitting the dials so we can spot any potential causes.

well basically i bought these, off someone off here and they was already complete and done.

but upon delivery the front plastic to the speedo was cracked , so i have no choice to take

the back half off that one to put together with my origanal front .

then just fitted them in the normal way with plugs that clip into the back along with speedo cable

and everything worked apart from the right hand side , it lights up but doesnt register :(

hope this helps u out

thanks yvonne

ok a few questions that might help

 

1. are the dials identical to the type you took out? (rev counter/crap picture of car variety)

2. how serious was the damage to the face plexi? (would it indicate a serious blow)

3. if the dial are turned upside down do the gauge hands move?

4. has the circuit ribbon been creased or torn in anyway? (also has it been pulled away from the female slot connector)

5. Can the seller be 100% trusted and confirm the dials were functional before postage?

6. Can you confirm the cars wiring is 100% still (may have been damaged during original instrument removal, can be tested by replacing originals)

7. Were the ribbon circuit connects to the offending dials are the connectors firmly pushed into place?

if the originals suffer the same fault you now know the problem lies outside the dails even tho they cant be ruled out as the original cause of the problem.

 

Check wires for signs of stress , stretching, kinks and wether theyve been pulled away from their terminals.

 

beyond that you'll need to check appropriate fuses and relays related to the gauge cluster (especially if you by chance neglected to disconnect the battery before attempting to disconnect or fit anything).

 

once you've corrected your current problem retry fitting the cluster with the battery off and check to see if it nukes the new relay/fuse again which would indicate somethings naffed on in the new cluster.
