Hello, this is my first post so bear with me! I have read a lot about digital gauge problems and I have one too on my 88. The engine heat gauge fades in and out and now it's mostly out! Anyone know a fix for this and is it possible to replace that gauge with an aftermarket analogue gauge?

Dont know about aftermarket gauges but you can easily install the stock analog gauges which is what most people do who have the digital one. They're prone to crapping out.

Thanks 85zx, do you mean the whole digital dash or just the engine temp. gauge? Also, actually I still would like a fix for the digi gauge so if anyone knows about a fix for that......Thanks

He means people usually replace the whole digital dash with the analog.

I fixed my digital dash by pulling out the power supply and resoldering all the wires on the plug with a low power soldering iron. The speedometer smoothed out instead of jumping around, the gas gauge began working, and all the other functions. I believe those solder joints are really stressed by the tight installation under the dash.
