try to figure this one out !!!!!

85.5 944. The instrument cluster has for some time on occasion stopped working. It would always start back though. No pattern to it at all. It has gone out now, and can't get it back working. I cleaned both grounds under the dash on the drivers side. Took the cluster out and replaced with a cluster that I know is good. Dosen't work either. Took the original cluster and cleaned the plugs. Still not working. One other thing. When the cluster dosen't work, the sunroof dosen't work either.
Please help!!!!!! Don't have speedo, scared of getting ticket.

All fuses checked

Wiring around fuses checked

These fuses can "look" good and be bad
?

Chect the "lifting roof relay" may be bad or a connection related to the 2. There are 2 red/white wires on the relay, one goes to the spedo head, should be pin 15 left side connector ( red/white).
also on the same relay for the "lifting roof" the black/white wire goes to the speed sensor on the spedo but my digram is faded and does not show the exact pin. I would try to locate that relay and un plug it to see if the spedo works, swap relays and back track from there.

sounds more like it is related to the black/white wire side of the circut that goes to the actual speed sensor. I believe the other is used as an ignition feed trigger.

I'll try pulling the roof relay and see if that makes a difference.

Sometimes there is no one around to pace behind. New police chief here in Nashville was shocked at how fast folks drive, decided to crack down, and boy have they.....

Keep the confines of the pcar to Goodlettsville, and drive something else when you have to go into Nashvegas? With all the parts you have lying around, maybe you could retrofit an early front left hub assembly, cable, then mount the speedo somewhere visable? Just kidding.

You are right. You would think with bits and pieces of 5 944's laying in the garage, I should be able to get a guage cluster to fire up !!!!!
