I just switch from an 89 nissan maxima to a 96 ford ranger, so I'm glad to say that ranger-forums.com is my new home because it looks like a pretty decent site.
When i got the ranger i noticed quite a few problems with the combination meter (speed, odo, fuel, etc.). First of all the oil needle just falls to the bottom unless I keep revving the engine then it stays where it should be. Next, the odometer doesn't work (it seems to not work when its really hot outside, usually when the door chime stays on for no reason). Next, the fuel guage doesn't work, it just stays on empty. Last of all, at night, the whole thing doesn't light up (just the fuel, which is useless because it doesn't work). I guess my question is, should I replace that whole combination meter or are they all related to the same problem that I can fix. And if I do replace it, what are the chance of those problems returning.
Thanks in advance everyone.
