Dead instrument cluster + P0500 + P0462

Postby DLan » Thu Jul 08, 2021 2:09 pm

If somebody had similar problems or know where to start, please help.
I have 2006 pathfinder off road SE
Instrument cluster shows nothing when vehicle is running. When I have ignition ON, several lights goes on - Seat belt + 4WD + Parking Brake + Air Bag + Battery. When it starts - nothing. No speed, no rpm, no mileage, etc - it just looks like its off.
I pulled these codes:
P0500 and P0462

I took the instrument cluster out, checked main connection, it looks fine.

This is how it looks while driving:
It runs pretty much fine. Maybe cooling fan goes on earlier.

Any ideas?

Check your fuses and fusible links. It's possible the cluster, itself, has gone bad (which often is due to cracked or broken solder joints). There should be some trouble diagnostic steps, or at least wiring diagrams, located in the factory service manual, which you can access via the "service manuals" tab at the top of the page.
