Gauges gone haywire

My RPM and SPEEDO gauges quit working...sometimes they move a little but they are just not working as they should.

My temp and oil gauges don't work either...temp just stays at "C" and oil pres pegs way past the "H".

The fuel and volt gauges work fine.

I could sure use some help and info on how to fix this problem.

Re: Gauges gone haywire

Sounds like dash cluster fault .

" FORD MUSTANG 2005 - 2007 CLUSTER REPAIR SERVICE

Is the instrument cluster in you vehicle giving you problems? Does the speedometer reads 65 mph when is parked in the driveway? If you are having problems with the Gauges (Speedometer, Tach, Gas, Temp, Battery, Oil, Tranny temp) in your 2004 - 2007 Mustang where they are fluttering, sticking, reading incorrectly (120 MPH), or just refusing to work. We replace old defective motors with new OEM motors that never fail.

Dealers charge over $650 dollars to repair this issue. We can make all your cluster related problems disappear in no time and for a fraction of that dealer cost and take care of that for you for life of the vechicle. "

Re: Gauges gone haywire

Before doing anything, I'd pull the instrument cluster and check the connections.

Re: Gauges gone haywire

A couple of notes on this excellent video (mucho thanks to R.S. for finding it!) that I wish I had seen last year:

Try not to touch the front of the gauge cluster with bare hands, your prints will show.

I had help from my daughter when I (also) had trouble unsoldering the tachometer motor. I had her GENTLY pry the front of the motor with a toothpick (no foolin') while I heated and pushed the pins with a small scribe, while holding the circuit board vertically. Be patient and do not overheat the board.

Lay your gauge cluster on a clean soft cloth when working.

"Index" the needles prior to reassembling the entire cluster.

Ensure that the connection pins (at plug) are clean prior to reassembly.
