I am experiancing problems with the right side of my gauge cluster. My Gas level and Speedo work fine, but my Tachometer, fuel economy gauge, and my temp gauge are all not working. I looked at the fuse box just to see if anything was blown but all my fuses are working. So I am curious on why it is that it would only be one side.
Yea I took a look where the cluster is and im not seeing it there are these two wires that are connected to each side other than that noting was loose.
i'm scratching my head on this one... there are at least 20 wires connected to the instrument cluster; divided into 2-3 wire socket connectors...
you'll realize diagnostics by description relies solely on how well you can describe what you see, feel , and do... thus, your description of "two wires connected to each side... just doesn't make sense...."
