I would bet the farm it's somehow related to the "illumination" wire. This wire is tied to the dash lights so that the factory (and aftermarket, if so equipped) radio will dim it's display when you cut the headlights on. As a side note, YOU ALSO DO NOT HAVE TAIL LIGHTS!! On your vehicle, as well as MANY others, the tail lights are tied into the dash lights. It's on purpose so that people will know their tail lights are out. Anyway, if you short the "illumination" wire, or otherwise hook it up in a way it doesn't like, it will pop the fuse in the fuse box. And for people who rely on the pre-fab harnesses, I have had one where all the colors were stuck into the wrong positions on the plug and it caused all kinds of craziness. This is rare I admit, but do not discount it when troubleshooting because I promise you, it absolutely can happen....

first the flashing light means that it is trying to go into 4wd. as far as i know there is no adjustment. The shift motor may be bad, If the transfer case is shifting it could be the silinod in the front differantal.

SOURCE: My dash lights don't work.

this got easy after a while 2 ways, i had friends who would not take the time to spend 8dollars to buy a harness connector for a new cd player and would splice everything together like takeing the red and yellow wires and connecting them all together as one. this drains ur battery unless ur cd player can completly power down by the power button not all do... but keep this in mind on GM cars the 2 wires of the same wires like purple the one with a black stripe is ground they go together stripe on stripe also there is 2 extra wires one is ORANGE and BROWN u dont need these dont even mess with them even if u have a connector block them off THESE TWO COLORS IS FOR FACTORY STEREO IF SO THESE WIRES CAN AND WILL MAKE IT SO U DONT HAVE DASH LIGHTS so always buy a connector ond dont mess with these wires block them off and dont ground them out.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

Good day
You have to look in under the dash and make sure the connections at the back of the cluster is in place. If that is all good then check the fuse box and make sure all fuses are in place and working correctly.
Good luck.

My friend has a 2000 s10 pickup and his dash lights went out, but the abs brake lights, check engine and oil lights turn signals t=etc. works. weve searched everything and no blown fuses but there was a...


The lights are powered by the dimmer switch in the headlight switch box. Power goes from there thru a 10amp fuse number 12 marked ILLUM in the interior fuse box.
Then it goes out to the lights.
You would need to know if you have power at that fuse.

something is completely draining your system at start-up, I believe that your starter is bad ( take it out and have it checked) or you have a real bad short or grounded wire that could possibly start a fire. A low, or almost dead battery can also cause this...take your battery cables off battery and clean anyway to insure good contact ( if aftermarket , even reassemble and clean cable to clamp connections) corrosion/resistance can be a thin film somethimes
