Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1997 Chevrolet cavalier just went through some weird stuff. First it had the abs light on while the battery light flick on as you accelerated and when you came to a stop it flicked off. Than my radio went off and the above actions in the video is what happen. Everything started flashing my speedometer was even going to zero . Help!
I beleive that it is a loose ground on the dash board cluster it is very dificult to ppinpoint but everything is happening because off a loose wire causing the dash to loose power and thats why it goes dead and the speedomiters and tac go dead. I wouldnt suggest doing it urself i would take it to a mechanic to have it fixed

It's not the fuse. You need to jump start the diagnostic cable. First you need a battery of 9v and short the + and - terminal to the diagnostic cable. Then you will see smoke. After that it should work fine.
