Why Your Instrument Cluster Is An Important Component Of Your Vehicle


The Importance Of your Instrument Cluster

The instrument cluster (dashboard or gauge cluster) contains the various gauges and indicators that drivers depend on to know important information on the current status of the vehicle. If this information wasn't accessible to drivers, potentially hazardous problems could occur and you would never know.


Many speedometers last the lifetime of the vehicle. That's not always the case, though. Sometimes gauges on the instrument panel can fail because of:

  • Vibration, which can cause connections on the circuit board(s) inside the cluster to fail.
  • Mechanical failure of the speedometer, odometer, or tachometer. There are sometimes small gears or motors in these units that can go bad.
  • Voltage spikes from a bad alternator can damage the cluster.
  • Jumping your vehicle can cause many cluster to short and then fail.
  • Burned out lighting. The cluster still works, but you can't see it at night.
