    Angry speedometer dont work plus more? please help

    OK, blinkers, speedometer, trans. temp don't work. Airbag light is on also seat belt light is on when wearing it. The blinkers work on the outside when i turn them on but not in the control panel. Some one told me it might be the control panel cluster? If you think you might know what it is, how much am i talking here? Help not a good day. Thanks.......
    To top it off city did some taring and did not put up cones. Now my front rt tire is loaded w/tar. Still working on that

    I seem to suggest this quite often, but I am going to have to suggest a bad or lifted ground to the cluster. It could be other things as well, but the easiest and cheapest thing to do is to start by making sure it has a good connection to ground.

    The first thing to do is to pull the cluster out and inspect the contacts where they mate to the connector in the dash. Make sure the cluster contacts and the dash connector are clean and free of any corrosion. Spray a dab of electrical contact cleaner in the connector. Figure out which wire in the harness is the ground and test the resistance to the chassis with a meter. If you have a shake ground at the connector, trace the wire backwards to check it on the other end... You might need a factory service manual for tracking down wiring.
