Start with the easiest solution and check the ground cable and the battery cable at the battery, don't just gently wiggle it try to move it with a little force. Also may try to just replace both cables if both are factory after being on the truck for that long they lose continuity especially the ground cable

    I found that the fuse for the gauges was blown, replaced and the gauges now work and truck starts and stays running, so far the fuse has held, so maybe i bumped something when the dash bezel was off.

Sounds like a "ground harness" issue. Most likely a common ground for the cluster and TCM.

My gauges just stop working,and they are frozen in one spot,the temp gauge still moves a little but not like its supposed to.and the dummy lights wont work but the turn signal lights work,also the light...


The gauges have a memory. They will stay where the last read was when you turn the key off and don't move until you turn the key back on. If something happened between the time you turned the key off and back on then they could be stuck in that last position.
Sounds like you may have a ground issue. The cluster uses a common ground. Maybe start by checking the ground wire under the dash that uses one of its mounting bolts in the corner.

My car was driving just fine when I was driving on the highway. Then my car stop running and it won't start now. But I cant hear my fuel pump when I turn the key to on. Do u think it could be a fuel...


If you don't hear the fuel pump when you turn the key on, and usually this can be heard, then the fuel pump may be frozen or bad.

Check this by putting a pressure gauge on the fuel rail of the fuel injectors and seeing if it goes up to say 40 psi or so.

If you don't have a pressure gauge for the fuel line, then spray some starting fluid into the intake of the engine at the throttle body, and if the car starts for a few seconds, then dies, the problem is a fuel delivery problem.

Good luck on this repair.

Fule gauge speedometer and rpm gauges stopped


Go to the fuse box and change the fuse for "Gauges". I think this might solve the problem.

Gas gauge on 2004 pontiac montana sticks


Before you start your van, and the key's are on accesory. Does your needle move? If it does, your gage is good and you have a bad ground or wire harness. Worst you could have a bad  sending unit and that is in the gas tank it self. Start with checking all the wire connection. Good luck.
