Question about 2004 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Speedometer, RPM, and Gas gauges out of whack

My 2004 Pontiac Sunfire gauges like the speedometer, rpm and gas gauges are all improperly positioned. Like it says when im stopped its at 30mph, The RPM goes to 7 when im only doing 3, or the gas gauge is all the way to the left beyond full when i know i only have half a tank.

This has been happening for a while and now all the gauges will not go back to where they should be. Please help! Is there any way to reprogram them back??

    when it is warmer outside and i drive the car for a long period of time, the tach will slowly progress to spin all the way to the right. Now the speedo is doing the same. It is stuck at 40km.

    My daughter's 2004 Pontiac Sunfire is doing the same thing. It is so aggravating. All the gauges on the dash have quit working, the light in the radio has quit, the driver's window won't go down, etc... It was working fine and then well you know the rest. I am so disgusted and so is my daughter. She is a new driver and was so excited to have a car and.... If anyone can help, please notify with a solution.

On the 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters this is a common problem, it's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board. It can be repaired though, check out this site for more on how to get it fixed - Cavalier instrument cluster repair

Go to the fuse box and change the fuse for "Gauges". I think this might solve the problem.
