Nissan 300ZX Z32 Gauge Cluster Repair and modification Service
I am currently the only repair service in the USA for the Nissan 300ZX Z32 gauge cluster. I have many years experience with repairing the gauge clusters and also provide modifications for the gauge cluster. If you are interested in having a gauge cluster repaired or would like to talk about a possible problem with a gauge cluster, please contact me at any of the emails below.
Examples of common problems related to a bad gauge cluster.
* Inaccurate or nonoperational gauges.
* The speedometer gauge function is intermittent or does not work.
* The power steering is hard to turn (caused by a bad speedometer gauge).
* The RPM gauge function is intermittent or does not work.
* The temp, boost, oil PSI, or fuel gauge is either sticky or only reads half way.
* Lamps are intermittent or do not work.
* Odometer is intermittent or does not work.
* Gauge needles were removed to install aftermarket gauge faces and after replacement the gauges are now out of calibration.
Repair and Test
After all work is completed I connect the gauge cluster to a test fixture and run a sequence of test to insure all gauges function properly. I run simulated drive signals to the gauge cluster speedometer gauge using a sweep function generator which simulates accelerating and decelerating at different speeds and connect the RPM gauge to an ECU which is dedicated for the testing. The "run test" last approximately 2 to 4 hours. The run test is to eliminate intermittent problems and insure the gauges function correctly during a simulation of real world environment. Intermittent problems can appear after circuitry has had a chance to normalize under load. I have found that the lamps in the gauge cluster cause a significant rise in temperature within the gauge cluster and these changes in temperature can cause intermittent problems to show themselves. The problems are usually due to poor connections in the gauge circuitry or component breakdown which can become more apparent during changes in temperature.
Flat Rate Service
I now have a flat rate service for all gauge cluster related problems. I inspect the complete gauge cluster, repair any gauge that isn't functioning correctly, repair things where needed such as resoldering bad solder connections, clean all electrical contacts both inside and outside the gauge cluster, insure all lamps function properly, check the function of all gauges, calibrate any gauge that needs calibrating and remove any minor scratches from the gauge cluster lens.
The flat rate is $150 plus $20 for shipping. The rate covers the replacement of one gauge if needed. The cost for any additional gauge which may need replacing is $25 per gauge. I make every effort possible to repair any gauge which does not function correctly. To me, replacing a gauge is a last resort because if I do not have one on hand I will have to source a gauge for replacement. I insure the gauge cluster is well packed for shipment and include tracking information. I guarantee my work and return a gauge cluster which will provide trouble free operation.
Gauge Cluster Modifications
I currently offer a few modifications to the gauge cluster. These modifications include changing the speedometer gauge face to read 200 MPH, relocating the fuel gauge to either the boost location or the oil PSI location. This frees up the fuel gauge location for aftermarket gauges. I also perform LED conversion for the gauge cluster and the instrument control pods which are to the left and right of the gauge cluster. If you have an interest in any of these modifications please contact me for more information at any of the email addresses below. Examples of some of these modifications can be found at my car website at www.mytwinturbo.com.
