Speedometer works sometimes and sometimes does not. Also the temp gauge does the same thing.

    I have a 2004 Impala and recently the speedometer has started to act up as the other person has said, it works most of the time but it has stopped working for me about 3 times in the last 6 months, the first time it got tired and each time I came to a stop at a light and then accelerated it would only reach a certain speed and the speed would be less each time until it finally just slowly dropped and stopped, I had to stop for something and when I restarted the car it worked fine. This last time,about halfway through my 90 minute trip, it basically only read about 60K per hour even though I was going at least 80k per hour at the time. I brought it in to get coded but since it was fine at the time, the machine showed no codes.

This is a very common problem. The instrument cluster is faulty and need to be replaced. Expect to pay approx.$250 for the dash cluster, and 1 hour labor to install it.

A/c doesn't work, temp gauge doesn't work, speedometer doesn't work until it gets to 30 mph, and rough idle in the mornings. could all this be the result of a bad computer?


Very unlikely that it would be a computer problem, it does not control the A/C, or temp gauge. Sounds like multiple problems. A/C could be just low on Freon, if pressure is low, it will not turn on. Temp gauge and rough idle may be related, if temp sensor is bad, the computer wont know the engine temperature and thus not mix the fuel correctly. But there are many things that can cause rough cold engine idle, like dirty throttle plate, or bad idle air control valve. You did not say what engine you have, so this is just general information.

Transmission screwed??


You will have to give a little bit of time on this one. The over heating coming up through the vents, sounds like your heater core. Now the temp gauge not working may be a sending unit (which one I am not sure there is three of them). The sports light I have never heard of that before. Now the car stalling and not turning back on could be a few things like, clogged or catalitic converter, or crank shaft sensor just to name a couple. The speedometer working only part of the time is usually the speedometer gauge in the dash but if it don't work at all it's probably a snapped speedometer cable or even a loose one.

Fuel and Temp Gauge go on and off intermitently


faulty wiring for the lights, and blinkers....

broken gears for the fuel and temp gauge...

just get rid of the damn car, get a Civic of the same year.

I was given a 323 once, unsiezed the rear brakes (the idiot left the thing parked with the e-brake on all winter), then sold it for beer money.

I have the same problem.. i installed a toggle switch for the fuse so at least I can reset it while driving.. its still a pain so Im thinking my next step will be to drill a hole through the plastic and put in a small metal post to stop the tach from going past 7

has anyone taken theirs into a shop?
