Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

My RPM is sometimes way too high on my 2000 Grand Am GT V6

Sometimes when i drive my car for a long distance away from the house my RPM gage will go up, and when i let off the gas petal the car will pull of kind of fast as if im on the gas petal, and when i get to a parking lot to turn the car off soon as i place it in park the hand will go up between the 3000 and 4000. What could be the problem??

There are a couple possibilities for this. One, the IAC (Idle Air Control) motor may be bad. But Ive also seen this happen when the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) goes bad. However, when the TPS goes bad there is usually some changes in the way the car shifts (automatic tranny), delayed shifts, hard shifts, etc.

My rpm gage is not working, my speedometer is not working, my gas gage is not working, and my oil gage is not working, and my temperature gage is not working pretty much when i start up my car and drive it...


I'd wager that the fuse that controls the gauges is shot, or one of the internal connectors got unplugged (Fuse sounds more likely). Radio, Lights, and Turn Lamps are usually on seperate circuits.

You need to pull the dash and check the guages look for any burning or melting. You may just need to replace the pannel in your dash, pretty easy work. If not start checking the wires and cables that come out of your faulty guages.
