Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Odometer stopped working, along with SOME of lites in dash board

In my 02 pontiac sunfire, my odometer (mileage) stopped working all of a sudden, and some of the lights in my dashboard stopped working right along with it, all at the same time. In my dashboard, the lights on the right and left side IN the dashboard isn't working, but you can see there is a light still working in the middle of the dashboard. Could this have something to do with a thing called a neutral switch? If not, what could it be?

    Occasionally all the numbers light up and sometimes it's just a few.

Those bulbs may have just blown, or maybe a fuse is blown. But the odometer that is another thing, like maybe the cable but its not the neutral switch.

My 2003 ford focus speedometer stops working sometimes as does the elecyric odometer- sometimes both at same time. Other gauges work fine. The odometer goes to just dashes in place of the actual mileage...


Usually if both the odometer and speedometer stop working, the problem is the speed sensor on the transmission. You should also have a trouble code in the engine computer.
If one component works but the other does not, the problem is usually the speedometer head in the dash.

THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LITE COME ON WHEN I PUT GAS LIKE A LTTLE AFTER I START TO DRIVE WHY????


It's a "service reminder" based on your current mileage (odometer) Check your owners manual vs your odometer mileage and you'll see what's required for service.

The odometer jumps the mileage around it will show 57000 then 67000 then all 8's then 7777


If this is a digital, you may have a loose connection.Or the odometer cable may be loose at the tranny end, or behind the dash.

Have a diagnostics test done as this may determine the issue more effectively. You can have this done at a local auto parts dealer; they are usually free, and only take about 5 to 10 minutes.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Odometer stopped working


IF YOUR SPEEDO IS WORKING THEN YOUR VSS IS OKAY, BAD VSS WILL STOP SPEEDO AND USALLY CAUSE HARD SHIFTING. NORMALLY ODO IS CONTROLLED BY SERVO MOTOR WHICH MAY HAVE WENT OUT. CHECK EBAY FOR REPAIR SERVICES OR SIMPLY GET A SALVAGE CLUSTER AND HAVE MILEAGE RESET

Cluster is pretty much non serviceable. It's a circuit board problem that will have to be fixed by a cluster repair shop.

I have a 2000 pontiac sunfire and the odometer light went out. Not sure if there is a fuse for this or i have to replace the instrument panel.


There will be a fuse for you dash lights and they are just light bulbs in the back. Is it just your odometer light that went out or the whole dash cluster? In all likeliness it's probably just the bulb that burned out.
