While driving all dash gages randomly drop to zero for 1-2 seconds and makes warning beep, gages return to normal but airbag light stays on for 4-5 seconds. Any ideas on why this is happening?


Hi Scott, Im glad to help!

Normally when the gauges drop to zero its because something is bringing down the BUS Circuit. To understand whats going on we need to find out if there are any codes in the system. Have the codes checked and repost here so I can help you further. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Scott.

The check gages light comes on and off while driving, at the same time, the oil pressure gage drops and then bounces back up after hitting zero


There a couple of possibilities; you could have an intermittent oil pressure switch or an intermittent stepper motor in the instrument cluster. The stepper motor drives the gauge.

Temp gage dropped below szero


Is there coolant in the cooling system? If there is not enough coolant the sensor won't pick up a signal because it's not sumerged. It could be the thermostat is stuck open. Are you in a cold climate, is your anti-freeze stong enough? Your cooling system could be froze. If my calculations are correct 70 km is a little over 4 miles. I'm thinking frozen radiator.

1996 3.1L Pontiac Grand AM all gauges went crazy


sometimes when the battery is too low the gages will go haywire.check you battery terminals for good conductivity and current levels. sounds like a low current problem.computer runs on 12 volts not 11 or 10. low current will give poor performance and bad electrical response.
try that first then look for shorts under the dash ie naked wires or burnt wires.
good luck.
