Why would the gauges in your Astro still not work after changing the fuses?

There is a voltage regulator 4 the guages in back of the dash.there is another name 4 it but I'm not sure of it.One of your Parts experts will know the name of it :->

AnswerI have a 1990 Astro, the coolant gauge and speedometer lights stopped working, i took it apart and noticed the bad design of the electrical harness. This plugs into the back of the dash and disconnects or shorts somehow. I'm thinking from gravity and vibration. It wasnt obvious it was loose, I plugged it back in and it worked for a couple of hundred miles, then not. Meanwhile I used a flashlight for the speedometer. My van overheated on the freeway and I would have known sooner had my gauge worked.My fault, their bad design.

The Houston Astros no longer play on Astro Turf. The only teams that still play on Astro Turf are Toronto, Tampa Bay and Minnesota. The Astros do currently play on astro turf. They got their name because of being close to NASA.

I was having this problem, gauges out, lights still working. Found I could get the gauges back by flicking the trip odometer reset. Went into the instrument cluster and found 2 fuses next to trip reset. Larger cylinder shaped upper, small brown rectangular below it. Lower fuse was loose, gauges would come on and off as I moved it around. I wedged it in place with gauges working, and all is well. I think this fuse is replaceable, but pulled on it pretty good and it didn't want to come. Trip to dealer parts desk in order. gt

Yes it did. I own (still) a 1990 Astro camper-conversion van with crank up windows.

cause when you shut off the van the power to the gauges is cut off completely, so the gauges will stay wherever they were at until the next time you start the vehicle.

History is still going and changing for many reasons. The main reason it is still going is because there is still life on earth that change.

I had the same problem. It's the headlight switch. It needs to be replaced. You have to remove the dash for that, which is easy. The switch rins from $107.00 on the internet, to about $140.00 at the Chevy dealer.
