01 2x4 sportage
all of this went at once today

loss speedometer, tackometer, temp guage, odomater but have all dash illumination.
blast the heat and it blows cold air (themostat stuck?)
transmission seems to be stuck in high gear (auto tranny), but shifts smoothly from L to 2 to D manually and through park and neutral all smoothly.
Checked fuses.

any thought all?

There is a ground screw by the fuse panel under the dash. You'll have to pull back the plastic to see it. Check that ground. It's for the gage cluster. That could also account for the tranny shifting weird. The TCM (Transmission Control Unit) is also grounded at that point.

Dunno if that's why you don't have heat. Fix the electrical problem first and take it from there.

It was the wire running to the ground for the gage cluster that caused all problems. All good now.

Thanx!
