Pontiac Sunfire Dashboard Guages don't Work

2004 Sunfire, 4 cylinder, automatic. Was driving down the road one day and ALL of my guages quit. My speedometer is stuck at 20mph, gas gauge is all the way over (not empty, the other side), same as the temp guage. Tach moves sometimes, but mostly stays at 2000 RPM.

I need to get my inspection done, so technically I have two questions. I live in Dallas, TX, can I pass inspection with the guages out? And: What might be the problem and what kind of ballpark estimate am I looking at?

Dashboard gauges have a wiring problem. Most Sunfires have these especially late models. It's a common defect. While the gauges will run fine most of the time, the primary instigator is heat. The more the car heats up inside the cabin, the more the gauges will stick. So keep the inside cool, and you'll be fine. Trying to replace with Chevrolet Cobalt gauges. I'll tell you if they work.

Try the simplest solution to a sunfire bad ground issue, connect a 4guage wire or a thickness comparable, connect it to the negative terminal and then unbolt one fender bolt and place the other end under that bolt, fixed my issue twice now. Sunfires need engineering updates every once in a while, good luck

I've only owned the vehicle for 2 days (2004 Hyundai Accent). Driving down the road the road the fuel gauge goes from full to empty...then after 30 mins back to full again. Can you help? Thanks,


Wandering fuel guages are associated with a bad fuel pump/sending unit in the tank. Probably one of the reasons it was for sale. will be about $200 for unit and $100 to change. Check your warranty for coverage.
Good luck

My guages are all either malfunctioning or have dropped straight down. I think it might be the guage cluster or the fuse but i have no clue really. it's a 2004 pontiac sunfire. if u could tell me what it...


A replacement instrument cluster sells for roughly $600.00 and needs to be reprogrammed for your vehicle. The cluster houses the theft deterent function in it.

Need to know where all three speed sensors are on 04 Jeep Liberty. My speedometer has quit working - all other guages on dashboard work.


It is located on the rear diff. at the top. The cable for the parking brake crosses close by and messes up the wiring.

Gauges


Well, most likely, the guages went bad, and need to be replaced. If you're up to it, pull an identical unit out of a junkyard, or order a dealer one, if you want to maintain a stock dashboard.
