Question about 2008 Pontiac G5

Instrument panel warning lights and gauges are going crazy.

I have a 2008 Pontiac G5. The fuel, tach and speedometer gauges are going crazy. At the same time, the Power Steering, Low Fuel lights flash, sometimes losing my power steering. What should I check?

SOURCE: 1996 3.1L Pontiac Grand AM all gauges went crazy

sometimes when the battery is too low the gages will go haywire.check you battery terminals for good conductivity and current levels. sounds like a low current problem.computer runs on 12 volts not 11 or 10. low current will give poor performance and bad electrical response.
try that first then look for shorts under the dash ie naked wires or burnt wires.
good luck.

SOURCE: gas guage, tach problems

I have been having the same problem. My gas gauge reads empty when full, never moves. My RPM will go hay wire when in hot weather. Like if i'm going 50MPH the needle will go to the RPM 5. And sometimes even go past that intrupting my MPH. So they'll be intwind. So, I would not now how much gas I got, how fast I am going.

SOURCE: I cant get the door panel off of my 2008 pontiac

Check for hidden access covers for mounting hardware if not the pannel is secured either lock-pins released by a plastic weidge or needs to be lifted upward of weidge hooks mounted on the pannel itself. A cheep service manual like haynes at the local autoparts store should have this info in it.

The battery light came on and then lost most of the instrument panel including the speedometer, tach, fuel gauge.


The battery light comes on when the charging voltage gets too low. Individual modules will start shutting down due to the low voltage. Suspect an alternator issue. Have the charging system tested to determine the source of the light coming on

Tranmission and instrument cluster


The speed sensor on your trans sends a signal to the electronics telling it when to shift, this will be where you fault is.

Gauges and Warning Lights Are Going Crazy


Hi there! I am having the same issue. It seems like every time that it rains a lot this happens. Check the battery though, the ground connection of my battery is wet every time this happen's. Check if the battery is damp or wet, that is usually what causes it for me. I am in the process of getting a cover for it, or putting electrical tape over it.

Just bought a used 1995 Honda Prelude and the Tach and speedometer work along with the clock but I can't see any other gauges. (Gas, oil, temp and whatever else might be there. What is the problem?


Since you just bought the car, I thought that you might not be aware of the instrument lighting control. I apologize if you know this:
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness.
To reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness. Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
Hope it's that simple.

1999 Cherokee, Changing out instrument cluster?


Unfortunately I believe this can not be done because the sensor for idiot lights are different from the sensors for gauges. I don't know this for an absolute fact but in most instances this is true.
