    he had just put a cd player in, put it all back together and they did not work. so this may be a dumb question, do you mean being the gauges or behind the radio?

These vehicles seem to have a problematic short, my grandfather has the same vehicle with the same problem, i found the short under the carpet on the driver side of the vehicle, under the gas pedal, sometimes wires can crack and break.

SOURCE: fuel gauge, temp gauge, and auto door locks stopped working while in transit. checked obvious fuses, found no problems. did not check all fuses. Ideas

I had a similar problem with a 2001 Saturn. We checked every fuse and they were all fine. We finally did a 'reset' on the car's computer by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it a few minutes later. Everything was back to normal after that.

If you are sure about your fuses,
  • Check the fuel gauge sensor and temp. sensor
  • check its supply.
  • check the display lamps

possibly a bad temperature sending unit causing the engine temp gauge not to work. did both gauges stop working at the same time?

My temp gauge and fuel gauge stopped working on my 1988 toyota pickup all of a sudden, what do you think?


Check all fuses with a test light. If all good, you will need to diagnose each circuit. Look for the temperature sensor, disconnect connector, ground test light and touch wire. Check to see if the gauge move. If it does, you will need a new sensor. Basically the test is the same for fuel gauge. Disconnect connector at the fuel tank and touch contact and see if gauge move. If it does, the sending more than likely is at fault. Make sure you test each wire as there will be a few. Use proper jack stands anytime you work under a car! Let me know your progress.
