Question about 1995 Pontiac Bonneville
My son has a 1992 Olds Toronado Trofeo, and his dash lights are out. The park break light and engine lights come on but that is it. I replaced all the bulbs and checked the fuses (just looked at them) didn't put a meter to them. Some people are telling me he may need a twilight sentinel switch (not mechanics) . Also I noticed his heater fan is not going on (it was working previously but it would be turned on then later come on) now it is not coming on at all . Are any of these related to one sensor or item..please help--thanks alot.
The Speedometers go bad, the digital ones and need rebuilt or replaced

Ok, you have three sensors on this engine that work together to manage the temperature reading that are sent to the gauge. i recommend checking all three to be safe. i will list the sensors and, locations below.
1. Coolant temperature sensor- Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, above transmission bell housing, mounted in driver side end of intake manifold.
2. Engine Temperature sensor- Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, mounted on rear cylinder head
3. Temperature switch.- Under hood, center, lower engine area, above oil filter, rear of coolant temperature sensor, mounted in engine block

A short is likely to blow a fuse or burn something. Most likely you have a loose or cracked printed circuit board behind the dash. If you can get the panel out intact, turn the key on, bend and push/pull various areas in the board while watching the display. You won't get shocked by doing this, but if the printed wiring touches any body metal, it can damage the printed wiring permanently. Check around any socket areas particularly. Good luck!!
