Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala

2 Answers

No odometer light, circuit?

My odometer is no longer visible, nor are the "R N D..." lights that let me know what is going on with my transmission. The rest of the dash lights are fine.

They quit working recently (3 weeks ago), and I've only seen them illuminate one time since they quit working (2 weeks ago). When they were briefly illuminated 2 weeks ago, they were only on while the key was turned in the ignition prior to actually firing up the engine.

Should I suspect a burnt fuse or bulb? Which fuse (the manual seemed unclear to me on this)? How do I get to the bulb? what should my first step be?

Thanks,
- New Daddy

I own a 2000 impala ls and encountered the same problem.My solution to my problem was buy a new light switch and it worked.The circuits on the old one seemed to be burned so thats why they would come on sometimes.To install the new switch you need to remove the faceplate on the dash board and behind it you will find two screws holding it in place remove the screws and unplug the switch and replace.

Odometer


if your refering to the odometer lights going out this happens alot I see. one of the circuits on the back of your cluster shorts and actually gets pretty hot then some times tapping your odometer reset gets it back on usually only a temp fix :O( I read a few years back that odometers are warranteed for life by buick. dont quote me on this as it was about 8 years ago and may no longer pattain. I had mine go out. bought a new one on ebay and 2 years later say thing.

My nissan Almera S reg has no side lights or dash lights.All fuses seem ok.


This solution will be of great help to you,even in the case of future or other dashboard problems;
Instrument cluster consists of electronic analog gauges, various warning lights, and optional tachometer. Vehicles equipped with tachometer have an electronic vacuum fluorescent transmission range indicator (PRND3L),odometer and trip odometer display. Vehicles without tachometer are equipped with a cable-operated transmission range indicator.
Instrument cluster is equipped with the following warning lights:
Battery voltage.
Cruise (speed control).
Door ajar.
Fasten seat belt.
Lift gate ajar.
Low fuel level.
Low windshield and washer level.
Traction Control.
The Body Control Module (BCM), which receives input from various sensors, sends display information to instrument cluster and operates gauges. Instrument cluster incorporates a self-test diagnostic feature to identify electronic problems. BCM, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), and Transmission Control Module (TCM) are continuously monitored by the diagnostic system.

SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
With ignition off, press and hold TRIP and RESET buttons while turning ignition switch to ON position. Continue to hold TRIP and RESET buttons until odometer window displays CODE (approximately 5 seconds). If problem exists, system will display diagnostic trouble codes. See DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART table. If no problem exists, Code 999 (end test) will be displayed.
DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART
CodeDescription
110.......Cluster Memory Fault
111.......Cluster Calibration Fault
905.......No CCD Bus Message From TCM
921.......Odometer Fault From BCM
940.......No CCD Bus Message From PCM

After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:
Dim test.
Calibration test.
Odometer segment test.
Electronic Transmission Range indicator segment test.
Dim Test
CHEC-0 will be displayed in odometer window. Instrument cluster will dim Vacuum Florescent (VF) display. If VF displays do not dim, a problem in instrument cluster exists. See BODY CONTROL COMPUTER TESTS in BODY CONTROL COMPUTER article.
Calibration Test
CHEC-1 will be displayed in odometer window. Each of instrument cluster gauges will move sequentially through each calibration point. See GAUGE CALIBRATIONS table. If gauge needle is not calibrated properly, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

Odometer Segment Test
CHEC-2 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of odometer will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.
Electronic Transmission Range Indicator Segment Test
CHEC-3 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.

Message center and transmission gear shift display, totally disappear and go black shortly after start up or will not illuminate at all.


{: ) You may wish to record the latest odometer and engine hours reading while still visible, just for future purposes. The problem is an internal circuit failure on the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC). Sooner or later the two message screens on your IPC will totally go blank and goodbye, so be prepared.
A replacement IPC will be that of later models, it will be programmed to your vehicle, and the trip odometer (total mileage) will be reset to zero.

Auto trans looses it under light acceleration uphill starting off. fluid/filter changed 90 lariat 4x4 150k on odometer since new


Try going to nearest auto parts store and get a product called "TransX". Sounds like you may have to rebuild the transmission...but this stuff will keep it going for a while longer - I use it and it really works!
