How much are you going to spend to fix two minor problems on a 500 dollar car. First you answer that question, then you look on www.youtube.com for a video of someone pulling an instrument cluster on a 91-95 Saturn. If you cannot find one then look for a repair manual on CD over on eBay for about 5 bucks. If pulling the cluster seems to be within your ability, then go looking for a used cluster at junkyards, craigslist, and ebay. Also keep your eye out for a Saturn odometer repair kit on eBay. Either you are going to buy a used cluster, repair it and install it or you are going to pull yours out fix the odometer and reinstall it. The broken odometer is a common Saturn fault and you may still find folks selling odometer repaired clusters for the early 90s Saturns on eBay. The gas gauge is problematic in that you are going to have to drop the gas tank and replace the fuel level sender, while you are in there do the pump as well and save duplicating the labor next year. I think there are folks out there selling the pump and sender combined for about 200 dollars. When you have spent a lot of time and money fixing these minor problems, you will still have a 500 dollar car. I think you could buy a good later model for less money, I had 4 Saturns and I think the 99 was the best year, stay with a manual transmission.
SOUND LIKE LIGHTNING SHORT OUT THE INSRUMENT GAUGES.CHECK GAUGES FUSE.IF ALL IS GOOD.YOUR DASH CLUSTER OR GAUGE PROBABLY DAMAGE BY LIGHTINING.NEED TO BE REPLACE.TAKE IT TO DEALERSHIP.LET THEM CHECK IT OUT FIRST.BECAUSE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER IS NOT CHEAP.
erique000, on Feb 06, 2009 you posted a comment about your odometer and gas gauge stopped working. Did you ever find the problem. I have a 2001 sl1 and the same thing occured but also the rpm gauge and the speedometer registered nothing. They all just sit at e or 0. Approx 20 miles later the car died. It will still turn over, but won't start. If you have a chance, please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org
