Indeed a fun one..i suspect a floating ground (poor ground) near instrument cluster causing the anomalies.....headlight circuit and signals are different so this makes sense .... if not fixed the instrument cluster will finally smoke and need replaced i think ...good luck

Oil pressure gauge flickers all over then goes to zero shut engine light comes on oil has 1000 miles on it 5w30 control cold or warm may return to normal 60/70 then 0


Problem could be a bad oil pressure sensor or the oil pump is failing. A mechanical oil pressure gauge needs to be hooked up to verify actual oil pressure. Problem could also be a bad stepper motor in the instrument cluster that drives the gauge.

After warming engine during sub degree weather,I drive 4blocks and dash gauges flicker off then back on, and engines dies and cannot be restarted with battery boost.


check your door controls, they are known to short out. When you try to boost it after it has died, have you disconnected the battery for a few minutes first? Had this problem with an 02 envoy when the temp dropped below -20

Intermitant temperature


Check to make sure your thermostat works right by monitoring the warming up of your engine. With a completely cold engine, start and run the engine for a few minutes, then put your hand on the top radiator hose to monitor if and when it gets warm as the thermostat opens more and more and note the gauge reading( if it works) the top radiator hose should be unbearably hot within 5-8 minutes. If the therm. opens right it should close right aswell, staying open a little while eventhough the radiator may have cooled may be what you are experiencing causing the rapid cooling and is nothing to worry about. The Hose should not get warm very soon after starting the engine. Regarding you gauge, lets take one step at a time, verify proper op. or the therm.

The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.


I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps
