I have an '89 too and the only warning light I've seen is the Check Engine. It's not listed as one of the features

On my 93 Chevy caprice the dash lights and cluster won't work. Gas gauge went so far up that I can no longer see it.

First check and see if the dash light dimmer control on the headlight switch is turned down all the way, which shuts off the dash lights. As far as the gas gage goes that is more then likely a defective gas tank fuel level sending unit.

My 89 chevy caprice won't turn over tested battery and starter all good dash lights or radio won't come on headlights and interior lights work

Sounds like a problem with the key switch since the lights are not on a circuit controlled by the key.
You may want to check the main power feed into the key switch from the starter post. There should be two or three fuseable link wires coming off the starter post going to the key switch and the fuse box.

How do I remove opera light off of 89 chevy caprice

I am guessing you mean the ceiling light. most of the covers just pop on and with a few seconds looking at it. you should be able to figure out how it pops off. most I would think you can grab with your hand and tug on it and it should come off. if not. do a little prying and see what moves and what does not.

I have a 1995 chevy caprice classic and the low level light for the radiator stays on also the temp meter on the dash stays beyond the cold I've flushed it best i can and refilled it after changin

Find your low level sensor on the overflow bottle. Sometimes they come embedded and molded into the bottle and you just change the overflow bottle, sensor and all. Should be same as most Caprices.

The hoses that are "cut" are silicone and better quality if properly cut. They withstand more heat, but Molded hoses have advantages too.

What I do not see here is any mention of a Thermostat. Lack of one would explain low temp readings. Also if you saying "Beyond the cold" is below the cold mark, then the water temp sensor(sends info to dash) may not work or the dash gauge is broke. When the car engine runs, it should move higher than cold.

You will need proper operating temperature for all the engine controls to work normally and will get better gas mileage.

Probably bad ground in the dash circuitry. You'll have to pull it out and check all the connections. Big job.

My dash board lights went out in my 1987 chevy caprice what should i do

The first thing to check is the fuse. It should be roughly in the middle or lower left marked "inst panel". If the fuse is good check the tail lights. If they are out too you need a new headlight switch. Hope this helps.

The only way to repair thes is to pull them out and send them to an authorized GM electronics repair center, there is nothing the consumer can do to fix it, they do not sell parts other than rebuilt units in some cases.
