Replaced Dash Lights, Now Speedometer Is Broken!

Recommended Posts

I assume you took the cluster apart a bit, correct?

I believe the back of the motors screw into the main circuit board with 4 screws. These screws need to be tightened to make contact as these screws transmit current from the circuit board to the motors.

That'd be my first guess. Try taking some pics and i'll try to spot something that doesn't look right. I did needle and bulb modifications to many of the 92-96 ES clusters.

I took the plastic off the face of the cluster and removed the speed needle. The small white piece that connects the needle to the cluster was brittle and broken! So I took the needle inside and fit the pieces together again and super glued them, reinstalled and now the gauge works perfectly! Now to figure out my fuel gauge that is stuck on 1/2 a tank!

Had you taken the needles off before? Did that needle just break on its own?

I have tried to preparing for the dash light changes. In addition, I wanted to get some tips in how to change it properly. However, I noticed that it could be good to have changes into my dash light because of the existing factor from it.
