My Bash on Nissan about this Problem. Join the Facebook page.

Made this page to gain some people on my facebook group, also to get some type of Understanding for all of us going through this particularly stupid problem. Here's the link to the facebook page. I have spoken with Nissan consumer affairs and they have told me that they will not commission a replacement part for their own truck, of which I now own and can not get a NY state inspection because the cluster will not communicate the proper info to complete a drivers trace for the inspection. They told me that because the truck is 13 yrs old they are not responceable for making a replacemnt part. So why is so easy to get parts for a 68 Mustang, which 43 years old. But getting this circut board for this 13 year old truck is not available. Come on Nissan are you kidding me. By the way the truck only has approx 105,000 mile on it, (Baby mileage if you ask me a person who has seen Nissan cars with over 350,000 without any problems) now thats a guess because the cluster does not work.

I just bought a 98 frontier with the basic cluster, no tach, and nothing works on mine either. Air bag, check engine and brake light are on, and the cluster lights up with the light switch, but that is it. Any suggestions??

I have a 98 frontier and I wired up an analog cluster to my truck from a 97 pickup with tach. Most of the connections are lights. My goal was to get the gas and speedo to work. The only issue I have now is the temperature gauge reads but reads low and the tach reads a little high. Speedo and fuel are accurate. All the lights work and such. The plugs do not match so I had to rewire the older wiring harness into the truck which was a task and probably for a senior level tech. If I didn't have the new cluster already I would have sent the original dash for repair.

Why would this fix the Nissan Frontier Instrument Cluster board?

It won't. Problems are in the cluster and has nothing to do with fuses. We have been repairing these units reliably for 10 years. Visit Speedometer Repair | Instrument Cluster Repair | Odometer Repair | Mr. Whizard for more info. For troubleshooting help call Tom 1-888-803-8523.

Ok let's see if this is the same problem.
My 98 Frontier starts out fine. then for some unknown reason dash goes crazy. Speedometer goes to 0, temp goes to top of chart, fuel goes empty.

If not that the speed won't go over like 40 mph. Driving me crazy. oh yes the odometer goes whacko
whole dash goes crazy then if I tap on it, it sometimes works. My Tacoma never did this crazy stuff
