Some people find it hard to decipher whether they need a new gauge cluster or if there are other issues resulting in gauge reading issues. Here are a few tips to consider when deciding whether to replace your speedometer cluster:
- If all of your gauges are reading sporadically, it is a good idea to change your IVR (Instrument Cluster Voltage Regulator). This regulator is used to reduce the voltage being sent to your gauges. When it goes bad, the gauges no longer receive the proper voltage consistently. Replacing the IVR right away can often cure this problem. If the IVR is not replaced, the gauges could become "fried" due to receiving too much voltage. At that point, you will need to replace your gauges.
- If just one gauge is reading improperly, it is likely an issue with that gauge or with the sending unit associated with it. Remove the gauge and test by providing a ground and a 9 volt power to the back of the gauge temporarily (be sure to remove immediately once the needle reaches max to prevent frying of the gauge). The gauge should slowly and steadily rise to max level and steadily return back to zero when power is disconnected. If the gauge is unresponsive or jumpy, it is time to replace the gauge.
- If your speedometer is jumping around on you, it can often be a bad speedometer cable. Disconnect and inspect your speedometer cable. If it looks to be in good shape, lube the cable and reinstall. Sometimes simply lubing the cable can cure your issue. If lubing or replacing the cable doesn't stop the speedometer from jumping around on you, it's probably time to replace the speedometer gauge.
Of course, these are just some of the reasons to replace your gauges. If you are looking to improve the styling of your Bronco, these speedometer gauge clusters are a great way to clean up the look of your dash. They look just like the factory original gauges when installed. These gauges are brand new and each set undergoes a thorough quality check prior to shipment.
