have a problem with the gauges the tach quits when the lites are on, the temp is mostly off (after the ipd deal ), the gas gauge is about half on and half the time off.. .. is it the insrument cluster or something else?

Welcome to Swedespeed, Mark.<p>Probably dirty pins in the back of the cluster.<p>Also, check ALL fuses and electrical grounds.<p>George Dill<br>

Re: '86 245 dash gauges (gdill2)

thanks will give that a go..<br>was wondering about a ralley cluster ..had a '79 245 with one . but heard it would not fit the hole ...would a cluster from a '90's work w/ the wireing? was also thinking abuout doing the auxilery gauge deal w/ all of them saw that IPD had a 'A' post setup..for them..and just wire straight into the sending units? also the speedo stays between 30 and 65?

The combined instrument cluster in your '86 245 is matched to the speed sensor in the differential (or v-v).<p>You may find a paper tag attached to the back of the cluster. A replacement cluster not matching the tag may not function properly with the speedo sensor and other instruments.<p>George Dill<p>
