Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

The car will start but nothing on the instrument panel works

After starting the car, nothing on the instrument panel works, including the radio and air conditioning. After a few minutes (times will vary) everything comes on and does the self check, even if driving at the time. I checked all the fuses and they were all fine.

Hi there
i know that u said u have checked out all of the fuses but have you checked the fuses under the hood there should be a master fuse block under the hood refer to your owners manual for the location and the different fuses they go to ok if not you can take the car to autozone or carquest and they will do a FREE diagnostics for you ok hope this helps

Truck start but nothing else work inside

What do you mean nothing else works ? interior lights , radio instrument cluster lights etc. The alarm light flashes while truck is running ? Let's be a little bit more specific if you can !

The accessory delay relay supplies power (B+) to the driver master window switch . This relay is located in the central junction box ,under dash panel right side . An this powers the windows , the instrument cluster energizes the relay .
Interior Illumination is controlled by same relay .

Why are all of my dash lights on and speedometer doesn't work

Could be the fuse for instrument panel lights or the connector for the instrument panel at the back of the cash cluster as they are easily dislodged.. If there has ever been any under cash work done or stereo wiring. Etc. If you bought the car used I suspect the harness connection. If the vehicle starts and runs I suspect one of the two.
