Customer Question

My truck is doing the same thing. It did have a qualcomm at on time and the gauges stopped working when the qualcomm cable fell on the ground and drug. Checked both fuse locations and the truck has all circuit breakers not fuses. Not sure if maybe there is another fuse for the datalink somewhere else?

The antenna is no longer on the truck. The cable that drug is the cable that would have gone to the antenna.

Did you unplug the qualcomm or is it removed as well?

Did you check the terminating resistor? Best way to check is wit ha ohm gauge on the data port. If the resistance is off, it will inform there is an issue in the data link and not in the cluster itself.

Check between pins C and D with the batteries disconnected. See that you are reading between 59 and 61 ohms. If you are reading any different, then you'll know there is an issue in the datalink cause by the qualcomm cabling or the terminating resistor.

If you are reading 60 ohms, the issue is at the cluster. This will narrow down the issue tremendously.
