Hi everyone, 

I hope everyone is having a good day as a skyline owner ( or enthusiast)

I am having a very difficult time with my cluster at the moment. Here are a list of sections to my predicament:

- None of the gauges work (except the turbo gauge I think)

- The lights on the cluster will light up (handbrake light, check engine, battery etc. when I stall) but are not on regularly

- I have sent the cluster to a specialist in the Eastern Melbourne suburbs. He took it all apart and said he could not see any issues with it

- I have sent the car to the Auto Electricians in the Eastern Melbourne suburbs too, they had a look at the wiring and said they could not find anything wrong either

- The car does not have a Speed Transducer in the car at the moment. I have bought one but have not yet fitted it. 

This leads to my questions. 

If I replace the speed transducer, will this fix the rest of the issues on the cluster? I was hoping that it maybe completed some form of a circuit for everything?

Could it be the ECU? as far as I know I am still running the stock ECU

So the auto electrician says the wiring is ok ? Yes ?

That was their exact words ?

 And the "cluster specialist" said that all the instruments were working ? Yes ?

Again exact words ?

Then my money is on the flexible plastic circuit board sheet on the back of the cluster.

It may well have some breaks in it.

Can you change out the entire cluster ?

Hi @PLYNX

They did, they both said they could not see any issues with either the wiring or the cluster. The Cluster guy took it all apart and had no issues with it. The Auto Elecs tested the wiring and said they couldn't find any issues. 

That is a good option, I hopefully can find one to buy in Melbourne. Have you heard of this issue before or just an educated guess?

Thank you regardless mate it is much appreciated

Yep had something similar happen to my R33 but not to the extent of problem with yours.

Changed it out, to test it, and it worked fine and then went over to a Veilside cluster and had a instrument repair place change the kms to the same as my original one( had to sign paper work for them )

Only other time I've seen a similar thing is a NISMO 300km/h cluster fitted to a manual that came out of a auto. 

Fitted up It wouldn't work properly on the manual and when re-fitted to the auto worked fine again

That's great news and at the same time very worrying from the point of view for the amount of money you laid out for the cluster specialist and the electrician not to diagnose the problem !
