the light bulbs are not replacable unless you can solder, you have to replace the complete instrument cluster, get one from a junk yard 100 bucks.

SOURCE: drain the antifreeze on a oldsmobile silhouette

Under the bottom of the radiator on the there is a drain ****, you will have to raise the car and crawl under it to see it, be careful to not break it, the screw in plug is fragile, it will be hard to unscrew.

over time our starters get a flat spot on them from wear. Or the solenoid is starting to go out. The solenoid is an electric switch that mounts on the starter. In my opinion its your starter....

If problem with wiring circuit somewhere, replacing parts won't fix it. if starter motor refuses to crank, did you try cranking in neutral? Is this an automatic tranny?

When problem is ongoing do the dash lites work? Do any of your electricals work?

Won't crank


Take mass air flow sensor off and clean the inside with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and allow to dry for 15 minutes then re-install.

Car was rinning perfect. One day it would not start. there was nothing, no clicking ,bell and guages were working. Jump start was nothing. Installed a new battery there was nothing. Went bact back 2 hours...


It sounds like you have an issue with your PassLock security system. I had the same with my 2002 Impala. Key turns OK, but won't start, won't crank. Wait 20-30 minutes, and car starts normally. There is usually a clue from the Battery and Security lights.
The problem starting to happen once a month, and eventually 1-2 times a week.
There are several write-ups on this problem for several GM cars for 2000-2006(?). Search this website, and search the web.
The official solution is to replace the ignition switch. The best solution is to bypass the Pass Lock system. I went ahead and did a full bypass, which involves cutting wires and adding resistors to the ignition circuit. I have not had a problem since.

My 2000 oldsmobile silhouette premiere....doesnt change gears....i hit the gas and it makes a sound like if it was on neutral...right now it only goes 20 mph need to know wat it is so it can get fixed...


What you have now is called the Fail-Safe Mode - when the ECM detected a major failure in the transmission it locks everything in it so you can to drive as long as you need to reach the nearest repair shop.
This is a really big failure , be prepared for a stiff bill - find out if it won't be cheaper just to replace the entire transmission with a second-hand one from a scrapyard than to try to repair the present one.

2002 pt cruiser dies then fires right back up randomly going down the highway


most of the times when the car cut out it is cause by the crank angle sensor you wait for it to cool down and it will fire back up again, best way to check it is to take a bottle of water with you and try to locate (which is between the fire wall and the engine on the driver side on the engine block) where the crank angle sensor. when the car cuts out pour the water on the sensor to cool it down if the car then starts right away that is the problem.
