OK, I have a 2005 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan with a 5 speed manual Transmission, Standard everything, no power windows, A/C, plain basic setup. So the other day suddenly my Gauge cluster stops working, it still lights up and all other lights work as well like the turn signal indicators, but the gauges themselves are dead and parked in the "zero" position, also my intermittent wipers don't work, but the regular speed and fast speed work. This all happened a few days ago. My question is this ... is there a controller unit that operates these functions? That maybe could be "flashed", or does the gauge cluster unit have control of this? I tried to check for a ground wire or something loose, but couldn't see anything. Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.
OK, So Thank you to those that tried to answer my question. I did find the problem, I've had this car for only 1 year and never had any issues so when this came up I was forced to look at the systems etc, thanks to Ben's answer I didn't even know that this car had 2 separate fuse panels one under the hood and one hidden nicely under the front dash, under the steering wheel, behind a wiring harness. But there it is. A simple fuse. It controls the Gauges on the cluster but not the lights on the cluster, it is also for the intermittent wiper timer, but not for the wipers themselves. Whew, some intense wiring going on in this vehicle. But it appears that Honda has a fuse for almost EVERYTHING.
PROBLEM SOLVED !!
