SOURCE: Car started jumping but had 1/2 tank and battery light came on.

Not at all, this could be many different problems, from the coil pack to a sensor, take it to autozone and have them do a trouble code on it, it will tell them exactly what is going on.

A low voltage issue will cause all these symptoms. You should have the alternator checked as well as the battery. Good Luck

SOURCE: 97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30

I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

I have a 2007 3.2 DI-D GLS SWB Auto 4x4 and have a problem which started suddenly 2 days ago. None of the instruments come on when switching the ignition key. I have checked the fuse #2 and it is not

Your problem may be in the ignition switch. There is a lot of stuff going on when you turn the key. There is an actuator in the ignition. Normally the car won't turn over when they go bad, but I can't know everything!!!!

Speedometer bounces from current speed down to zero (where it sometimes sticks)

It won't be a cable, as it's impossible for a cable driven speedo to perform this way.
It's an electronic speedo.

Check and/or replace the speedo sensor in the gearbox housing.

I was sriving my 2003 chevy trailblazer and the gauges went crazy and died now it wont start and no power to the gauges and wont come out of park

First check the battery and its cable connections, second, try working the ignition switch several times. After that, you will need a mechanic to check it out.

Check the starter selenoid, check for corrosion on batt, terminals and inside the cables, tap the starter with a metalic object and try to start the car, if it starts change the starter.
