    I want to replace my defective instrument cluster (2005) sunfire with a used cluster. Is the true milage stored in car computer and then will transfer to the replacement odometer in cluster?

What will cause a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire to not go into the extended learn mode when replacing the ign lock assembly .


Did you clear codes ? . All codes in the theft deterrent module must be cleared for a relearn.
PASSLOCK Changing - Components Description
Important: Due to component variability, the vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system must have the learn procedure performed regardless, if the vehicle starts on the first ignition cycle after a VTD repair.
All codes in the theft deterrent module must be cleared for a relearn.
Engineers design the Passlock™ system in order to prevent theft even if the various theft deterrent parts change. The Tamper mode will engage if any of the following components change:
• The Passlock™ lock cylinder
• The instrument cluster
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
If you replace any of the above components, the system will enter the long tamper mode. If the system enters the long tamper mode, ensure that the system completes a long tamper mode cycle. During the long tamper mode cycle, the THEFT indicator will flash for the full 10 minutes. The instrument cluster and the PCM require the full 10 minutes in order to complete the learn cycle. Ensure that the ignition switch remains in RUN until the indicator stops flashing. If you turn the ignition switch before the indicator stops flashing, repeat the long tamper cycle from the beginning.
Are there any codes ?

I have a 1998 Sunfire and the odometer will not show. The digital deplay only show the trip milage. Whatdo I need to do to fix this?


on a car that old your only real choice is to buy a replacement used instrument cluster on craigslist or eBay or call around to local junkyards. it just does not make much sense to spend hundreds fixing a nonessential part on a 500 dollar car. it will not be worth one more cent with a working odometer.
you can most likely find a video of someone pulling a late 90s GM cluster on youtube.com to see how it is done.

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.

Replace instrument cluster


Is your speedometer or tachometer needle acting weird or giving wrong readings? If so it's probably the drive motors going bad, very common for sunfire instrument cluster and speedometers they all need replaced which isn't too hard if you have the parts and the equipment.

If not email me at fred@drspeedometer.com or visit my site at DrSpeedometer.com and I can fix it for you for a good price.

97 grand am, v6. replaced instrument cluster.


Call dealership and find out if it's a "PMI" system. If it has to be PMI'd at the dealership, then the old instrument cluster has all the old data in it. You have to remove all of the data from the old instrument cluster and put it in the new cluster before the car will run.
