YOU HAVE A BAD INSTRUMENT CLUSTER, i OWN AND OPERATE A REPAIR FACILITY THAT SERVICES A LOT OF VW`S AND THIS IS AN INHERENT TRAIT.

Answer2:

I have a 1997 Jetta TD. The cluster went down also. For me I had to resolder each pin out of the 20 or 24 pin connector on the Electronic board of the cluster. Hope it can help.

The speedometer and odometer are electrically operated. There is no mechanical connection to the drivetrain. If there is no power, they don't work.


CHECK THE SPEED SENSOR TO MAKE SURE IT IS HOOKED UP AND DO AN OHMS TEST ON IT TO MAKE SURE IT ISNT BAD


A Vehicle Speed Sensor(VSS) can fail gradually or suddenly. At a minimum the speedometer and odometer will cease to function. But most newer cars rely on the speed sensor for a lot of other systems and will activate a 'limp home mode' if the speed sensor fails and could affect things like the ABS system and the transmission.


My lexus speedoment does'nt work no running at all....I do not why it happened suddenly?


It really depends upon the type of car (year, brand, model, etc.). I had the same issue on a 90 Honda Accord. This particular car had a sending unit on the transaxle (transmission) that failed. The connection from the sending unit to the speedometer is electrical. I replaced the sending unit and all was well. Other cars have a cable that connects from the transmission to the speedometer. If you have this type of car, the problem could be the cable, the gear at the end of the cable that runs off of the transmission or the speedometer itself. More information is needed to provide further details. What type of car do you have? Do you have a manual?


The temperature suddenly dropped and the room got cold, very cold.


Suddenly the temperature dropped and then the room got really cold.


Lakes, and to a lesser degree, rivers, freeze as the ambient temperature reduces below Zero. This never happens "suddenly" and it takes time for the water to assume the surrounding temperature.


Yes, it can. When a cold front moves in, the temperature can drop suddenly and dramatically. This is the sort of temperature change that can precipitate storms and tornadoes.


Check conections located aft of dash. Check fuse block. If you can'y find it sale it. ;)




The changein temperature , Food Or newplants , added fish , decorations


yes you can because of the fluctuation of the temperature plays a huge factor


It will melt at anything over 32 degrees it will not happen suddenly but little by little.


check the fuses. Same thing with my 96 corsica, along with a few other instruments.


I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AND IT STARTED TODAY I NOTICED IN MINE THERE IS NO FIRE IN MY #2 AND #3 PLUGS DID YOU GET THAT ANSWERED IF SO PLEASE HELP ME I CAN NOT START MINE ANYMORE AND I GET TOLD IT IS 1 OUT OF A MILLION THINGS


No, but you can make a sentence with the word suddenly. Suddenly it started to rain.



It is most suddenly and most suddenly


check the blower fuse, temperature sensor on the radiator,switch on the dashboard and the blower relay switch.


Sometimes Cichlids change color when the temperature of the tank drops or rises suddenly. From my experience. -Alan Armour



you replace it its unlawful to tamper with such things but hey knowledge is power remove two screws and reset the teeth on the main gear good to go


The temperature of water affects living organisms because they have to adjust to one temperature to survive. For example; some fish live only in cold water, and then oneday if the water temperature suddenly rose and became warm/hot, this would pose a problem for the fish!
