Now No Speedometer

Might be a blown fuse. One time a fuse blew in my LX470 and the whole dash went out...no radio, no lights anywhere. I would say take it to the dealership to have it checked out.

I would just take it into the dealership, if you mess around with the wiring you always take the chance of messing things up even further. When my fuse went out they replaced it for free so it shouldn't cost you anything. :cheers:

Had a similar experience, and just to be clear, the only thing I know about the electrical system is what I read here.

I have 1998 GS300. Battery was drained while at work and when I jumped car at end of day, the alarm kicked off as soon as I attached jumper cables but the car started immediately after all jumper cables connected.

When I started to drive away, I noticed that all instruments were out on dash board. No MPH, No RPM, No Fuel or Oil. No backlight.

I checked Guage Fuse in kick box to left of brake pedal below steering wheel.

It was fine. Still no instruments.

Then I went under hood to fuse box on passenger side close to battery. I pulled a single fuse, labed MPX-B. It was fine and when I replaced it, the car alarm started.

Now when I went to start car, all the instruments and the backlight was working again.

Not sure if pulling the MPX-B fuse caused some sort of reset, but everything seems to be working fine now.

I had the same problem with my 98 GS 300. Disconect the negative battery cable, wait ten minutes and re-connect.

I agree with SeattleGS3, B)
