I had a similar problem, it was my fuel and spedometer though. If you turn the car on and off a few times, they needles should go back to zero. The problem seems to be that they are physically worn and are getting stuck. I eventually had the instrument panel replaced for about $600 at a dealership because having to remember what speed it started at was too much of a pain. The car thinks that where ever it starts frmo is zero, so if I turned the car on and needle was stuck at 20mph then when it showed 65 I was really going 45. You may be able to live with those to gauges not resetting, I couldn't do it with the spedometer.

Temp guage is not reading


I don't think the 2 have been synchronized, i.e. the thermostat and the temp gauge as if they for different manufacturers products. As a result your fan is always running no matter what the engine temp is, so I guess the thermostat is either faulty or it has not been installed properly.....sodeep

My 1990 gmc sierra 1500 temp. guage stuck after new thermostat.


Hi

Does your temp guage needle drop to Zero when you switch off ignition ?

If not, your temperature transmitter is faulty, or the wire running to it is earthing out somewhere.

Hope this is of help.

Good Luck !

Fuel guage reads 1/4 at all times even when full. How do I repair


1.If the needle on the guage is stuck. you can try tapping the guage to see if the needle moves or turn the ignition on and off a few times to see if you can get it to move. If the guage drops to empty when you turn off the ignition you know that its not the guage. (note that the guage does not drop to zero when ignition is off with all cars of this age).

2. The problem could be with the sensor in the fuel tank itself. Rocking the vehicle up and down from the rear (you will need help doing this) may free the sensor level indicator ball in the tank.
