    Speedometer, tach, fuel, and temp gauge don't work. All the idiot lights go off when the car is started but the low coolant level light stays on even though the overflow is full. Also, the low fuel light stays on maybe because the fuel gauge dosen't work.

    No instrument panel, nothing works except check engine light, low fuel.
    I have changed the ignition cluster, and computer. Neither solved problem.

Found the problem! The main cable going to the under-hood fuse box was rubbing against the metal bracket that the fuse box mounts on. Can we say poor electrical layout?? It had rubbed the sheathing off the cable and had broken one wire (the one supplying power to the instrument panel.) So I fixed that and cut a section of rubber hose and put it over the bracket to help prevent such events from occurring in the future.

There is likely a bad electrical connection at the back of the instrument panel. Remove the instrument panel, unplug the connectors, clean the contacts on the plugs and the panel with rubbing alcohol and q tip, and reinstall.

Rpm gauge and speedometer stoped working


It sounds like you have a faulty Instrument panel Cluster (IPC) Your local dealer will have to confirm this as independant shops don't have the scanner capabilities for this diagnostic procedure.
I hope this helps.
Thank You,

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it

Speedometer, RPM, and Gas gauges out of whack


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
