    I have the same issue inmy 2002 Camry. We have checked the fuses also. We are completely lost.

    Hi, Were you able to figure out a solution to your instrument panel issue?

    Checked fuse, looks fine. I believe there are several that could be blown associated with this problem, but I can't seem to pull it out. Guess I'll be heading to a mechanic or see if AutoZone will help.

My mph, gas, and temp gauges are not working


That's why you don't let you husband work on your car ! Unless he does it for a living .. For MPH there is a VSS - vehicle speed sensor , for the gas there is a sending unit in the fuel tank, for the temp. gauge there is a temp. sensor located in coolant stream on the engine .You more then likely need to have you instrument cluster repaired . GM had a problem with step motors inside the instrument cluster . A step motor is what controls the individual gauge. The sensors are all inputs to the PCM - powertrain control module (engine computer ) .
Engine Coolant Temperature Gage
The IPC displays the engine coolant temperature as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine coolant temperature. The engine coolant temperature gage defaults to C or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Fuel Gage
The IPC displays the fuel level as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the fuel level percent. The fuel gage defaults to empty if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

When the fuel level is less than 14% (84ohms), the low fuel indicator illuminates.
Odometer
The IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. Momentarily press the trip select/reset switch in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip select/reset switch for greater than 1.5 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer. The IPC displays the vehicle mileage and trip mileage as determined by the IPC. The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed information from the PCM. The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected.
PRNDL Display
The IPC displays the selected gear position as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display shall flash all gear positions if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Speedometer
The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses per mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 mph (0 kph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit exists.
Tachometer
The IPC displays the engine speed as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine speed. The tachometer will default to 0 rpm if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine speed sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

How to Replace the planetary gear in an Odometer of car?


The procedure is follows:--
1) First of all disconnect the negative cable from the battery of car.
2) With flat head screwdriver, pry the gasket around the edge of the face of speedometer gauge away from the dash and remove the gasket.
3) You will have to pull the entire speedometer gauge out of the dash;
NOTE:-- do not to disconnect the connecting electrical wires when you pull speedometer.
4) Then remove the speedometer needle by turning the needle clockwise.
5) Then remove the two screws in the face of the gauge with screwdrivers.
6) Remove the motor casing for the odometer out from the dial after the screws are removed.you will need to pull the motor casing a bit to remove it out.
7) In the motor casing you will see the gear pod at the top of the motor casing. Slightly with bit force remove the gear pod. The gear pod is attached to the "lid" of the casing .
8) You will see the odometer planetary gear in the gear pod which you removed.Remove the planetary gear from the gear pod with the help of mini flat head screwdriver.
9) Insert new gear into position and reassemble the gauge by reversing the procedure.
this will help.Thanks.

The speedometer bounces and sometimes does'nt work at all, and odometer hasn't changed sametime


Right off the bat it sounds like a broken speedometer cable. As the cable spins from the gearing of the transmission it is clicking against the broken part of the cable running to the speedometer gauge. The frictional clicking is what's causing your needle to bounce around. Since the cable is probably broken and cannot spin long enough to move the odometer numbers. Raise your vehicle safely and disconnect the speedometer from the transmission. then see if you can pull the cable out of the housing. If only a portion of the cable comes out, then that should answer your question. Be careful when you disconnect the speedometer cable from the transmission as not to lose any small pieces that cause the drive mechanism to work.

Why does the the odometer on my 1997 volvo 850 not work but the speedometer does? any ideas


This is a common problem with 850s. The speedometer is driven electrically, while the odometer is mechanical.

There's a tiny little gear inside the odometer that runs it from a motor; it's no longer tied directly to a speedometer cable like older models. What happens is the gear gets old and brittle and loses teeth, at which point it can no longer turn the odometer.

My wife's '96 850 had the same issue when I got it, and a little internet research turned up the answer above. There are companies that make replacement gears you can buy fairly cheaply, but it does require a fair amount of mechanical aptitude to pull the instrument panel and disassemble the speedometer assembly.

One note of caution that I learned the hard way: you have to take the front cover off the instrument panel, exposing all of the gauges. Be very careful not to disturb the position of those little needles; I ended up messing up the gas gauge, speedometer and temperature gauge, and it took a lot of trial and error to get them put back in so they showed the right readings.

If I recall correctly, I found instructions for doing the gear replacement online, but it's been so long that I don't have the web page(s) I found any more. A lot of times the manufacturer of the replacement gears have instructions on their web sites.

IPD USA sells them and has instructions.

Check the fuse panel first. Has anyone been under the dash recently, sounds like a harness plug is not quite home.

2001 dodge grand caravan sport speedometer not working, gear selector has all lights lit and does not change when changing gears. My husband says that is seems to be in low gear when driving. odometer, gas...


The speedometer is operated by a cable to the transmission. The gear selector is also a manual linkage. Neither are electronic. There may be something stuck underneath inferring with them directly.
