"Instrument Cluster Self Test"
The Self Test can be initiated manually by depressing and holding the Trip Reset button while turning the ignition on.
Observe the gauge in question while the Instrument Cluster performs the Self Test.
The gauges should position at the following calibrations points:
Speedometer MPH: 0, 20, 60, 90
Tachometer Gas: 0, 1000, 3000, 6000
Fuel: E, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, F
Coolant: Cold, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, HI
Volts: 6, 9, 12, 15, 17
.... if it fails the test, you could have a bad sending unit in the tank which is real bad news. The fuel gauge sending unit, fuel pump, and fuel filter are all one assembly. Check fuses, wires, and everything else you can think of because I believe the assembly is pretty costly.
If you start a thread, be responsible and post the final outcome.
