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.

it is not the same.
if you are changing the cluster because some functions are intermittent,check the solders on the pc board...

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.

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.
