It is cable driven, simply replace the cable.....

it is not hard to do just time consuming...

How to replace:

remove the dash cover, there is about 8 screws on top under neath, u have to pretty much put your head in the steering wheel to see them, then there is one at the glove box, and 2 under the coin tray above the ash tray.

then you need to remove the instrument cluster, there is 4-5 bolts holding it in, not the itty ***** ones, but the normal sized ones, on the outside of the cluster.

reach to the back of the cluster and in the center you will feel the cable, you have to pull the plastic retaining clip off then slide the cable out.

then go under the car, to the transmission on the drivers side, about 3/4 way back you will see the cable, it goes into the side of the trans, it has one bolt holding it in, take it out and you can then pull the cable right out.

to get it out of the car, simply pull the cable from underneath and it should slide right out.

slide your new cable in the same way you took the old one out.

Make sure to put all screws back in or you will end up with clanking and squeeking from the dash.


8mm socket, ratchet and long extension or nut driver will work too.

It sounds like you have a wire shorting out.also on most newer models,there are sensors and relays that run everything.check owners manual for wiring diagram.and when its NOT working use test light on all components i.e. relay,sensor,wiper motor. this should help pin point your problem

I got a 05 monte carlo and sometimes the wipers dont turn on i kno they work but sometimes they dont even work

Check the owner's manual or a Haynes manual for the location of the wiper relay and replace it as it sounds like it's sticking at times.

The odometer, fuel gage and tac do not work on my 2004 gmc 3500. oil and others OK

your cluster gauge is broken or has a loose connection. if your gauges sometimes work and sometimes dont then it is a loose connection. and if they dont work at all then it is broken. i would also check fuses and electrical supply to gauges. if you dont find any errors or bad grounds then i recommend taking the cluster gauge out and replacing it.

Yeah my Trajet won't start,Battery seems fine plenty of power,however when I turn the ignition key there is nothing ,all the dash lights come on by half power sometimes strong sometimes they fade out,all...

Check and possibly clean all connections to the battery(bat clamps/posts)...check to be sure the ground on the block and the body are clean and well connected

Dash lights and tail lights work when they want

the occasional not working leads me to believe it's loose wiring or a short in the wire somewhere
