TOYOTA LANDCRUISER SMELL PROBLEM

1998 Toyota Landcruiser • 126,000 miles

Hi, I have a 105 series landcruiser and whilst driving along the freeway.
Both the speedo and rev gauge stopped working and I could smell burning plastic. I immediately pulled over and turned the car off. I checked under the bonnet and it's seems the issue was under the the dash. Since then. Both the speedo and rev gauge have stopped working. I would really appreciate your advice. Thanks tony

Since you have burning smell, it could be a short circuit within the circuit and that could mean wires are burnt and problem has to be addressed asap.

Start with the basics, check the fuses. Remove the meter cluster and go under the dash to check wireharnesses for signs of burning.
