Question about 2004 Pontiac Sunfire
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?
From 2003 to 2006 GM - chevy , pontiac , buick , cadillac , had bad step motors inside the instrument clusters , causing gauges to no work or sporadically . Happened to my 2005 chevy cavalier , went to automotive salvage yard ,got a used one for $20.00 buck's . That was two year's ago , now problems !

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.
