The brake light can stay on if the master cylinder is low on brake fluid or if the emergency brake is on. The switch that turns the brake light on could be stuck on by the emergency brake pedal or handle. The check engine light is on because the cars computer senses a fault in the cars system. Have a mechanic shop scope the cars computer

SOURCE: 97 grand am, v6. replaced instrument cluster.

Call dealership and find out if it's a "PMI" system. If it has to be PMI'd at the dealership, then the old instrument cluster has all the old data in it. You have to remove all of the data from the old instrument cluster and put it in the new cluster before the car will run.

SOURCE: instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

There is no module under the dash on your vehicle .
P0463 - Fuel Level Sensor A Circuit High Description: The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the fuel level input (FLI) circuit for electrical failure. The test fails when the signal moves above the maximum allowable calibrated parameter for a specified fuel fill percentage in the fuel tank. Possible Causes:
  • Fuel pump (FP) module concern
  • Incorrectly installed fuel gauge
  • Damaged instrument cluster
  • FLI shorted to VPWR
  • CASE GND circuit open
  • Overfilled fuel tank
  • Damaged fuel gauge
Diagnostic Aids: See the diagnostic aids for DTC P0460. Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory Ranger GO to Pinpoint Test HX . All others Refer to the Workshop Manual Section 413-01, Instrument Cluster for fuel level indicator diagnosis.
You start by taking to Dealer or someother qualified repair shop .

They may stay on if your headlights stay on. Try turning your headlights off and see if the break light goes off.

Abs light, brake light, engine light stay on but do not flash


Well, that sucks, for sure. The only commonality I can see between the engine, abs, brake light and speedometer is possibly a bad vehicle speed sensor. But when you throw in the codes for lost comm and cluster error, that muddied the water a bit. I am sure that there are separate fuses for the trailer wiring harness (my 04 chevy has separate fuses, surely an 09 dodge does) so I doubt trailer wiring could have done all this. A lost comm could be caused by a blown fuse. I would inspect every single fuse I could find in the entire vehicle, also, I have researched your problem a bit and have found a couple possible fixes. One is that the abs sensor on the rear differential is known to be sketchy and needs to be changed. The other is cleaning any ground cables that are connected to the fuse box on the front left fender. I hope this helps!

Has this car ever had a trailer harness added to it? Sounds like you have some wires crossed somewhere.

1995 Toyota V6 Battery light on instrument cluster stays on


The battery light comes on if the battery voltage is too low. Check you battery voltage. It should be above 12V with the engine running. If not, the alternator is not working. Next, check if there is power on the FIELD terminal of the alternator. Again, you should have 12+V. Check if the Alternator fuse is blown.
