    Default Fuego instrument cluster

    Hi, is there a common problem with fuego instrument cluster. Only thing working is fuel gauge and speedo. I have checked the fuse. As well can you still get instrument needles anywhere.
    Thanks. Peter

    Had my needles replaced by Ringwood Speedos.
    Wasn't overly expensive.

    The other problem with dash means (more than likely) you have to drop down the fuse panel and remove and refit electrical connectors a couple of times (or use contact cleaner or the old style ink rubber).
    They tend to get dusty and removing/refitting them exposes fresh contact surface restoring electrical connections.
    If that doesn't work we'll have to investigate power supply to cluster.

    Hop this is a start.

    Hi R1173

    I have used R16 speedo needles (these are white but they slip straight on).

    Like 85Fuego said most likely you will have some bad connections somewhere, just beware with some contact cleaners that they will melt some plastics so before you go crazy with the contact cleaner test on the plastics first.

    VK & VL Commodore needles also used to be a replacement for the warped Fuego needles.
