Question about 2004 Cadillac Escalade

2 Answers

Dashboard is dead

All indicator lights on dashboard periodically came on and off. For a few months it happened when first started car, then would come on while driving (speedometer, gauges, etc). A week ago they all went dead and have not come back on. I have no speedometer, oil, battery, temperature gauges. Any ideas?

Hello Sylvia i think you have had your dash board taken out at some
stage previous to your owning it, there is a big electrical connector
that hooks up to the printed circuit board behind your dash. you will
need to get a techy to pull off the plastic masks around your dash
and unscrew the speedo console. we used to get alot of this fault
here in New Zealand when sellers of vehicles were clocking the
speedo's to show a lower mileage reading on the odometer, very
nasty.
cheers bucky

SOURCE: dashboard lights wont come on,cant visually see

The problem could be a failed light sensor for the twilight sentinel, it is located in the defrost vent, could also use more info on the symptoms. try putting the sentinel to the on position with vehicle out side during the day time and then placed something over the light sensor and see if the lights come on by watching the tail lights if they come on then it is working, if not replaced the light sensor.

The car is not reading the key and thinks someone is trying to steal it. Try another key or see a dealer.

Air bag light showing at the dashboard. It's intermittent happening. The air bag light dissapeared for a month then iy\t's back again. It usually appears for a couple of days. What could be causing t


The airbag light on the dashboard comes for few reasons, either there is a bad connection or connection came loose but than the light would stay on at all times, if it comes periodically than I would look up to the owner's manual and also find the airbag check label inside the car as it might be faulty or in need of replacement. The danger is that if it is faulty it can blow up by itself or in case of accident (hope none happens) it will malfunction.

You have some wiring problems shorting out that is coming from the dash board so if you or anyone you know how to use a multimeter to check the wireing harnesses plus check any connectors that might be just very touching the connector of dashboard which means a bad connection to dashboard.

I have a 2001 VW Polo 1.6 classic. My speedometer would often cut out and stop working, now my entire dashboard is dead, (including the digital odometer which is stuck) even my indicator lights don't work....


Sometimes when the spark plug cables are dying (or are from a lousy manufacturer) it affects the dashboard. Happened to me when i had a 97 Polo, check that, it could be the same problem.

Light indicator problems


I would say try and REPLACE the turn signal fuse/relay. It should be a square, black fuse/relay on your fuse panel. They run about $10.00.

AIR BAG FAULT WARNING LIGHT KEEPS COMEING WHEN CAR IS STARTED


I had the same problem. My 2008 Passat had to get a faulty rotator that controls the electrical part of the dashboard on the car.First the Air Fault light came on then my whole dashboard went out the next day. I had no horn, no radio, no lights on at all on the dashboard. It was that rotator part that controls the electrics. I was told they are faulty after a few months, they ordered a new one, installed and my car is good as new.
