Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier
My temperature gauage has broke and is laying on my 10 mph speedometer so now when I'm driving 40mph it says I'm going 50 mph because the stupid temp. gauge is in its way and even when my car is off my speedometer has to just lay on the 10 mph mark because the other arrow is in the way. What do I do? Is it the cluster? And how much am I looking at paying for that if so? Can I just take the plastic off and move it by hand out of the way for now? I know I have alot of questions but hey I'm a girl and dont know to much about this kinda stuff. Help
I first filed a complaint with the BBB Autoline. After getting this on record and printing numerous problems with this vehicle and this issue off the internet, I approached my dealership in Memphis where I have my car serviced. Talk ONLY to the service manager.
He was very kind and agreed this should not be happening to a car just out of a warranty. They did a diagnostics test, made sure it was the cluster, and ordered this part. They replaced it for me for only $100 and this included the diagnostics and all labor. Press this issue, they will work with you.

It must be a manufacturing problem, bc the same thing has happened to me. I have a 2005 Chevy Cavalier and the temp gauge has gone so far past the red that it rest on the 20 mph mark on the speedometer. It eventually went back down, but now it is doing it again. Idk what to do, but obviously if this is happened to others it should be the manufacturers place to fix.
