SOURCE: instrument panel is not working

Found the problem! The main cable going to the under-hood fuse box was rubbing against the metal bracket that the fuse box mounts on. Can we say poor electrical layout?? It had rubbed the sheathing off the cable and had broken one wire (the one supplying power to the instrument panel.) So I fixed that and cut a section of rubber hose and put it over the bracket to help prevent such events from occurring in the future.

SOURCE: 1996 3.1L Pontiac Grand AM all gauges went crazy

sometimes when the battery is too low the gages will go haywire.check you battery terminals for good conductivity and current levels. sounds like a low current problem.computer runs on 12 volts not 11 or 10. low current will give poor performance and bad electrical response.
try that first then look for shorts under the dash ie naked wires or burnt wires.
good luck.

SOURCE: pontiac 2003 aztec cluster panel not working

GM has a problem with clusters but the government nor GM will do a recall on the clusters. Check ur local yellow pages for a Speedometer fix company , if u cant find one hit me back and I can find one for you.. In Houston we pay $250 for the service.

SOURCE: 99 Pontiac Sunfire

I have a 1999 Sunfire and the fuel pump fuse kept blowing. I noticed it happened during accelerations only. After tracing this son of gun down by placing a jumper fuse between the fuel pump and the fuse box and also one from the fuse box to the relay that goes under the hood; i found the problem kept coming between the fuse box and engine. Make long story short I found the problem with a corroted positive battery cable (the main red cable). I could not tell before because it is insulated; but once i cut it, the problem was obvious when i saw all the green **** on the wires. I replaced the cable with a new one and the fuse blowing stopped. Hops this helps...........It drove me crazy for 5 months.

My 2000 Chevy s15 Rpm and Gas Gauge is not working


I didn't see an s15 in that model year, in my database?
If the speedometer works but the tach doesn't, I think something is wrong with instrument cluster?
GM has had a problem with fuel gage sending units. The sending units are not hard wired to instrument cluster, they send signal to pcm, the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster, telling the cluster the gage settings.
It may be possible to use different size resistors in place of the fuel level sending unit, to see if fuel gage reacts properly to different resistors, if the gage reacts properly, then I think the problem is the fuel gage sending unit.

The speedometer on my 2004 Pontiac Montana quit working. Is there a fuse for that?


Nope. The speedometer needs a signal from the vehicle speed sensor to operate. Is the check engine light on? If so, scan for any codes that may indicate a VSS problem. If no codes, possible internal cluster issue with the speedometer head

On the 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters this is a common problem, it's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board. It can be repaired though, check out this site for more on how to get it fixed - Cavalier instrument cluster repair
