volt guage not working #931639 02/17/09 09:49 PM

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I replaced my instrument cluster with one from a SR5 pickup. The voltage guage is stuck at 18V. I'm reading 14.6 volts at the battery with the truck running. The FSM trouleshooting say to check the inline fuse or replace the guage. Where would I find this inline fuse? Or or they just talking about the fuse to the instrument panel? My truck is an 88 4x4 with 22 REI motor and 5-speed. I do have a correct five speed instrument panel. Any help on this? Thanks, Roy

Body Damage is Cool
The Voltmeter, as well as the other gauges and idiot lights work off of the ENGINE fuse.

Does it go to zero volts when the key is off, and ~12V when the key is ON but engine is off ?

If the answer is yes, you're OK, the gauge isn't too accurate.

Depending on what year your truck is and the year of the SR5 cluster, some wires need to be switched around.

The gauge is at zero with the ignition off. When the key is on it goes to about 14V. When you start the engine it goes to 18V. Sorry about the slow reply, I've been away. I do appreciate any help I can get here. As I stated earlier I have checked the voltage across the battery at 14+ volts with the engine running. I'd really like to get this thing working correctly.

Sound like an inaccurate gauge. What does your external VOM read with the key on but not running?
