From 2003-2006 GM installed faulty stepper motors for the instrument panel gauges on a lot of their models. Revised stepper motors are available. Each gauge uses one motor.
Common problem with turn signal malfunction is the 4 way hazard switch.

Engine Temperature Gage at the Instrument Panel not working


Your temp.gauge is probably bad ! Check for voltage at the coolant temp. sender ! You have to check it with the engine running . The red with white stripe should have a voltage the other wire ,yellow with red stripe is ground side ! Instrument panel fuse box fuse # 15 a 10amp fuse powers the gauges ,if your gas gauge works it's not the fuse . The dome lights get there power from an other fuse an circuit ! Did you check the bulb ? Check fuse # 8 IP fuse box , also a 10amp . Check for voltage at the dome light ,switch on !

I just bought a 1983nissan 280zx 2+2 non turbo.drivers side rear running light ot wing But drivers side turn signal is checked bulb fuses ect. also oil gage volt and clock work sometimes and sometimes


You said same socket, so it couldn't be a bad ground or then neither light would work. And you also said there is no power on the tail light wire at the socket? There should be voltage on the wire with park lights on. Find the rear tail harness. Somewhere there at the rear of the car the park light wire (the tail lights, running lights, all the same) will splice off to both sides of the car. You have passenger side lights, so you know the signal is good that far. Somewhere between the splice and the driver's side, the power is lost, maybe right at the splice. So find the harness, it will be either under the car along the frame, or inside the trunk. That's an old effin car, Howard. Are you sure you want to nurse it back to life? lol. Buy a Haynes manual for it - it will save you money in repairs. Good wiring diagrams, too.
Are those gauges in the instrument panel, and not aftermarket? If they are in the dash, I may know what it might be. I have an '87 Sentra. Fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and warning lights, and turn signals would only work intermittently. Car would start and run, but those things- sometimes not, or they would come on way after down the road. I traced it down to a faulty ignition relay in a relay block above the instrument fuse panel. The run wire out of the ignition switch trips this relay on, and it sends power to a portion of the fuse panel that has the fuses for the gauges and turn signal lights. Replacing the relay was the answer-they always work now. Your gauges may be similar, but almost as likely a loose connection somewhere.

Gages on the dash quit working is this a fuse problem


the instrument cluster has a fuse that provides power to it. look for the fuse in the fuse box on the bottom left driver side, just underneath the panel. or below the light switch behind the panel.

Dash light stopped working


check fuse first... check that the dimmer isnt turned all the way down... check the power coming from the dimmer switch... and if all else fails, pull the instrument cluster and check bulbs.

Electral the dash lights are not working


check your dash light dimmer switch. it is usually by the headlight switch, it might of gotten bumped accidently. if this doesn't fix your issue then i need to know if all dash lights are out or just the ones in the instrument cluster.

Dash Cluster, gas gage doesn't work when fuse keeps blowing 10amp


costs like $100 an hour for automotive electrician. use a curcit breaker (looks like a fuse) its silver put it in wher the blown fuse is. buy a compass. and runn the compass over the wiring . when the compas moves in the direction of wiring its in that area. a short curcit creats a magnetic feild.

My check gage light is on what do i do help!!!!!!!!!!


A "check gage light" typically indicates a faulty reading on one of the gages located on your instrument cluster. After starting your vehicle, observe your instrument cluster if one of the indicator needles on the instrument cluster remains all the way to the left or "pegs" out all the way to the right, it may be the cause of your fault. The exception is the coolant temperature gage it will take 10 to 15 minutes after which the needle should rise to a normal position. Correcting the "faulty gage light" will depend on which gage is malfunctioning. Once you have figured out which gage is causing the check gage light to illuminate, then we can proceed to correcting the problem causing it.
