It’s important for drivers to have access to a wide range of information while behind the wheel. This includes vehicle speed, RPM, fuel level, coolant temperature and much more. The information needed is displayed for the driver on gauges – the fuel gauge, the speedometer, the tachometer, etc. This is the instrument cluster. Like many other elements of your vehicle, the modern instrument cluster is electronic, and requires voltage in order to operate. The instrument cluster consumes less power than batteries do (Batteries use around six volts).
The instrument cluster voltage regulator ensures that the right amount of voltage is supplied. Voltage regulator failure is relatively rare, but not unheard of.
Given the fact that you must have access to the information provided by your instrument cluster, failure of the voltage regulator is undesirable. Without an operational instrument cluster, you will not know the fuel level, vehicle speed, or the temperature of your engine coolant. We recommend having the problem diagnosed by our expert mechanics immediately.
Replacing your failed instrument cluster voltage regulator is very important. Have your vehicle diagnosed expediently as other problems can cause the same symptoms as instrument cluster voltage regulator failure.
