Dash Gauge Repair?

Has anybody had their Borg Warner Dash Gauges repaired, found a place to buy replacements, or found alternates that are suitable?

These were used on Alpine Coach Limiteds, 97-2004, and other diesel rigs. Part #'s are reputed to be:
Speedo w/fuel & oil pressure: 7754-00010-01
Tach w/volts & engine temp: 7754-01010-01

Front side of Borg Warner gauges, ~4" diameter


Rear side.

Note the gauges & idiot lights were (at least partially) fed info via the Vehicle Data Computer or VDC, now manufactured by Medallion.

Mike, the gauges in your picture are not from a 98 or 99 model, maybe 2000 onward. I had my speedometer repaired and calibrated at Speedometer Repair Services, Custom Cables - Powl's Lancaster PA
but I think any of the repair shops advertising online would be OK.

Several Years ago I had used University Speedometer Riverside CA, (951) 742-7117to repair a factory Tack on my Toyota Truck and was happy with there work. A couple of other shops in So CA are Auto Gauge Repair, San Diego California 760-622-3519and the one mentioned in the previous post Redline Gauge Works, Santa Clarita, CA 661-259-8891.

I have tried several, most recently United Speedometer in Texas, without success. I'm ready to buy a new set -- Actia?

Actia might work. Your existing setup uses the VDC on the rear side of rear bulkhead of the battery box to translate engine/tranny/etc. signals to something readable by the Borg's. Actia's don't need the translation, they get a twisted pair J1939 connection & read the chassis data buss directly. You'd have to work out a few things- e.g. low air alarm comes off somehting on your rig, not sure what, while there is an air nipple on the lower of two Actia warning light sets that reads air pressure & enables alarm directly.
Not sure what else would need "figuring out."

I was sorta thinking that just installing a pair of Actia round-face gauges should be good enough; apparently the speedometer is the master, generates a proprietary bus of its own, to which the (hopefully 3-in-1) tach is attached. I'd just leave the rest of the system as-is, since the VDC seems to be working okay.

Are there any updates to this thread?

I have a 2002 and have been having issues with the needles sticking or suddenly the speedometer will drop to zero and I have to physically stop the MH to get it to work again. I have exactly the set of gauges shown in the top post. Have tried every avenue to buy replacements. To my dismay, it looks like BW is out of the gauge biz and I cannot find direct replacements anywhere.

HELP

Oh now my fuel gauge is stuck on full now also. It is not stuck, when I power off the needle drops to Empty and when I power up the needle goes to full and stays there.

Thank you

I don't know if there are any current posts.
I live in in Portland Or where ISSPRO is located. Their whole business is quality gauges and are also used in OEM. Over the years when I had my trucks and equipment, they were the only gauges I ever used and never had a problem. They are famous for their fuel senders. Give their factory a call at 800-888- 8065 and maybe they have an idea to help you out.

Until you get your fuel gauge fixed, you can reset your trip odometer, every time you fuel up, divide by about 10 mpg and should give you a close estimate of your fuel tank.

I'd recommend you divide the miles traveled by 8 if you don't want to end up stranded on the side of the road waiting for fuel. Factor in head winds, terrain and generator use as well. Try to have at least 20 gallons remaining. On a 100 gallon tank, 650 miles should be the maximum distance traveled between fuel stops.
