SOURCE: Generic Electronic module.

The gem is behind the dash in the center, behind the radio. It controls whipers, anti theft, 4x4, cargo lamp, insterment cluster, plus a few other things. Hope this helps.

2005 chevy equinox. The needle on the temp gauge is normally steady but from time to time swings back and forth from hot to cold and then normal, it also shows a code of p1245. What could be wrong??


The code P1245 is for the Intake Plenum Switchover Valve.

This probably has nothing to do with the gauge fluctuations. The gauge problem is probably one of three possibilities:

  1. Low coolant level in the system. When coolant levels get low, air moves thru the system and when it reaches the temp sensor, will cause fluctuations.
  2. Defective coolant sensor. These can fail over time as do all sensors.
  3. Defective gauge in the dashboard.

1999 Silverado has an engine surge of 200-500 RPM at 45 to 55 MPH


sounds a little like a cruise control problem.
they used to have a centering adjustment that kept the speed within a range. If the range somehow shifted to the high end this would cause your surge. it would be a screwdriver slot on the outside of the case.cw increase ccw decrease. yours is set too high or cw.
I work the screw back and forth several times in case dirt entered the cruise module.

Try taking the gauge cluster out and cleaning the connectors then apply some dielectric grease. this may help with the speedometer. to remove the gauge cluster, pop off the top vent cover (3 clips), then remove the knee guard under the steering wheel. After that you will see two screws holding down the bottom part of the gauge cluster and 2 more on the top. Hopes this helps!

When driving, Speedodometer drops to zero.


I thought this year of Santa Fe had a 100k Warranty? If so, take it to the dealer and get it fixed. Even if it's not under warranty, take it and get it fixed! This is dangerous to use with the cruise control!! Do not use the Cruise Control until you get this fixed. It sounds like a bad speedomoter sensor, and that is confusing the Cruise Control. Either your speedometer is going to stop working altogether, or your going to RAM someone from behind going at a DANGEROUS rate of speed. Take it and get it fixed, and do not use the Cruise Control until it is fixed.

Gas gauge, cruise control quit after front end collision.


THEY ARE SEPARATE PROBLEMS, YOUR GAS GAUGE PROBLEM COULD BE ELECTRICAL OR THAT YOU NEED TO REPLACE YOUR FUEL PUMP WHICH IS INSIDE THE GAS TANK. AS FOR THE CRUISE CONTROL PROBLEM, IT COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS THE SWITCH BEING BROKEN.

Cruisecontroldoesn'twork


check for a fuse,i believe its by the drivers side door in the dash,then check if there is vacumm going to the cruise control,check to make sure the brake light isnt staying on,check to see if the linkage is still hooked up,and try wiggling the on\off switch back and forth(slide switch)..it could be a bad switch which the turn signal switch is on the same setup,or the cruise unit under the hood.

Engine light stay on and off 1995 VW Jetta GLS


It's just bad timing. Aftermarket radios have nothing to do with cruise control. Cruise control is attached to your cable line for your pedal near your throttle. It'a normally a box attached next to it. That is running on the battery separately and maybe a sensor to warn if it's not working properly.
The radio factory radio, is attached to many sensors in cars. If you have one that worked with volume contols on steering wheel than you might of sparked a problem. If that is the case (where you could control factory radio on steering wheel), than all you need is to go to the dealer and ask them to reset your gauges and warning lights. let them know whats up. Might cost you nothing. Also when replacing certain parts, the cruise control might have been tampered with and doesnt work.Or has been detached. normally you will have a blinking light steady, blink and it disappears. But check with dealer for the reset.

After they have done this, check to see if it occurs again. If it does, than it might be a shorted out wire connecting one of the sensors from the large important parts you had replaced earlier and it was just result of coincidental timing.

especially when replacing timing belt and water pumps. Even mechanics make mistakes!
Good luck.
