    MY IMPALA HAS THE SAME PROBLEM AND I DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY TO FIX SO IF ANYBODY KNOWS





    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

  • Joy R Feb 01, 2009

    I bought a 05 impala from a used car dealer & the first day I freaked out because I thought the engine was overheating, but when I checked under the trunk everything was fine. I was afraid to drive it though. So I was glad to find that the problem is just a faulty gauge connection & not something more serious.

    I have the same problem. It seemed the temperature gauge are not replacement. I don't know how it is working. I just turn on and off the sometimes the ignition, making the temperature gauge to get replacement. Maybe the problem is going to come back after somedays. Anyway the engine is working well.

    I have the same problem with my 02 Impala. I replace the thermstatic. When I start the car in the morning, The gauge goes to hot until heat comes out. I am not losing any antifreeze. Whats wrong??

  • Anonymous Mar 20, 2009

    Gauge says car is overheating, took it to chevy, they could not get it to overheat. Finally told me gauge is not working properly. They need to take off dashboard and try to trace problem, they think it may be a faulty wire, and want to charge 100.00 per hour to try and figure it out, no guarantee that they will. I don't have that kind of money.

    my temp guage has been acting real stupid about a year already. I always just click the key on and off really fast about 15 to 30 times and watch the guage gradually go back to normal. I'm tired of it so I'm gonna try the stepper motor dealio. thanks

There is a temperature sensor likely to be on your radiator. Make sure the connection is plugged in. Sometimes un-plugging and plugging it back will correct the issue. If not, you'll have to have some check if the sensor is faultly or if the electric wire is fault. You can check your fuse box. I don't think it's a fuse because other things on your instrument cluster would also not work.

I had the same problem and I got it fixed by going to http://www.instrumentclusters.com/. It cost $235 for EVERYTHING. I just need to get the electrical system fixed. I'll start by replacing the fuses, and hopefully that alone should do it!

Temperature gauge shows car is running hot but it isnt what could be causing it


The gauge is bad . Replace insturment cluster maybe . Have it tested . Could be computer or data network problem . You need to know how it works . Depending on the make , model and year vehicle . Coolant temp. sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer, the PCM sends this information to the insturment cluster over a serial data network . Having the vehicle hooked up to diagnostic equipment is the way to find the problem . GM vehicles years 2003 to 2006 had insturment cluster problems .

My 2001 buick century blows warm air on drivers side and cold air on passenger side could the problem be that the flapper is stuck.


The electric control actuator more then likely ! Do you hear any clicking come from behind the instrument panel . These actuators have plastic gears inside and they break , strip etc... Can also set DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes to set in the HVAC - control panel (module ) A scan tool used to check engine codes can't read these codes . Need a factory scan tool or professional grade .
DTC B0361
The HVAC control module receives a left air temperature actuator position signal from the left air temperature actuator. The left air temperature actuator position sensor is a potentiometer that is tied to a 5 volt reference source. The variable output from the potentiometer feeds back a position signal to a pull-up resistor located in the HVAC control module. This signal is used to determine the necessary drive signal to the left air temperature actuator motor to provide the proper air mix door position. This value is stored in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM) portion of the HVAC control module.
DTC B0363
Left air temperature actuator signal circuit stays at 4.5 volts or higher.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Temperature Valve Actuator Replacement - Left Side
Remove the left instrument panel insulator. Refer to Instrument Panel Insulator Replacement in Instrument Panel, Gauges and Console.
Remove the knee bolster. Refer to Knee Bolster Replacement in Instrument Panel, Gauges and Console
Disconnect the electrical connector from the left air temperature actuator.
Remove the mounting screws from the left air temperature actuator.
Remove the left air temperature actuator.

I have a 2005 impala v6 and the fuel and temperature gauges show the needles all over the place. Don't even know where to start. Any ideas? The speedometer works just fine.


The ground connection to your instrument cluster has failed. Try running a separate ground connection to a different chassis ground point.

Why did this happen all of a sudden, Overheating (maybe) and RPM Sensor Pointing down?


If the noise was coming from the cooling system, first try to replace the radiator or expansion bottle pressure cap. The RPM needle probably is unrelate to the cooling system problem.

Temperature gauge not working


Common problem with 2000-2005 Impalas. Stepper motors (motor that controls pointer needle) on cluster circuit board were a defective design. Find a gauge repair service locally or on the web. Repair can be done at a reasonable price. Avoid dealership if possible. They will charge in the $450-550 range. Good luck. Ron @ Speed-O-Repair.

Guages not working,


If all voltages checked ok,then most probably its faulty instrument cluster board on which gauges are connected.Yes if cluster circuit board looks ok,then also it can be faulty.Somewhere there is minute short or burn on board then such prolem arises.
Also check the fuse box.One under hood and other under dash.Inspect each and every fuse and see if all are fine or not.
