Hi, I have a 91 Voyger that the speedo, tac, gas, oil, and charge gauges
do not work. The check gauges light is on.
It just stopped working, then worked sometimes, now it doesn't work at
I have change the gauges fuse, that didn't help. The warning lights seem
to work ok.
Since none of the gauges work, I figure it must be a broken instrument
panel board. Could I get one from a junk yard and put it in. If so, what
do I do about the speedo milage not being the same? here in Fla it is
recorded every time you buy a new plate.
Thanks for any help that you can give. email replies are welcomed ~Dan~

You'd think with computers they would be able to deal with it more
efficiently, but what happens is the title gets marked TMU (Total Mileage
Unknown) and that's it. I take an engraver and a brass plate and engrave
Odometer replaced, vehicle mileage 121,123, odometer mileage 92,572 and
the date. That way I can keep trak of what's going on.
On one car I took the odometer apart and adjust it (you can usually do
this easily from behind) and changed the mileage to the correct figure. I
had a LOT of time on my hands that day!

Dan, the panel that is under the steering wheel at your knees, remove it and
you will see the BCM (Body Control Module) disconnect both connectors and
reconnect them, now see if your gauges work.
My 92 did a similar sounding thing once...one by one pulled the fuses,
waited a few seconds, put them back in...took care of it. Did it a couple
of times to me, but hasn't done it in years now...? Never did figure out
I removed and them put back what I thought might be the connectors to
Body control module, one is off white the other is blue. This did not
make the gauges work. I also removed and replaced all the fused and that
did not fix it. I did a voltage check from the gauges fuse to ground and
it was near 12 volts.
I posted a jpg of what I thought was the module that you were talking
about. The jpg did appear in our webtv newsgroup reader, but may not
appear to you PC people. Anyhow, do you feel that I should find a body
control module in a junk yard, or look for a used instrument panel ~
