Just want to let it be known. I did post looking for a cluster. No responses except one that didn't work either. This is why I decided to get the reman. No you dont have to buy the reman if you choose not to, but after dealing with the cluster freaking out the way mine did it was well worth the money. I also have a lot more into my car and I plan on keeping this one for a long time. You also dont know how long a used one will last once you put it in. Remember that this is a common problem and you never know when it'* going to strike.

That is very true. My gauges are not freaking out. They have only worked twice since I bought the car.

I just pulled the dash, checked, cleaned and replaced to no avail. I rechecked the grd. bussed on each side. I have a little moisture on both of them. Can this be rewired and moved from that location?

I have asked this question several times but got no answer.
Is there a fuse for the cluster under the dash or under the hood?

Hey there,
Yes, there is a fuse.
There is a fuse panel under the drivers side of the dash, and there is one on the passenger side.
The label is usually affixed to the fuse panel door. I take it yours is missing?

A cheaper route: go to the local wreckers and grab an operators manual for the car. The fuses are detailed there.

Maybe some one will chime in with exact fuse #

I forgot to mention you have to remove a panel to access the passenger side one.
You'll see some screws directly under the dash. The panel will pop off, and you'll see 12 or so fuses. Maybe a fuse is loose??

I would imagine you looked, but on my car I have a label attached to the door of the fuse panel which tells you what is what.
Is yours missing??

I'll look in my O/M tonight and give you the fuse number to check.

It'* position number 11 on the drivers side. 15amp.
It'* shared by the radio, by the looks of things.

Because yours were working, on and off, makes me wonder if it'* a bad ground to the cluster??

Well I ran out to Wal-Mart this morning and the gauges worked(except the OP gauge). I came out and got back in, started the car and of course NO GAUGES. Now what do we make of that?
