Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

1996 Pontiac Grand AM Instrument Cluster same as that of 1997?

I have a V6 1996 Grand AM SE with bad Instrument Cluster that needs to be replaced. I can't seem to find any used one for the particular year. But I do see one on ebay for 97-98 grand am models that look exactly the same. On the other hand, those listed under 94-95 models look different.
Do the 97-98 instrument clusters work with 1996 Grand Am? Thanks a bunch.

I need to replace the Heater Blend Door Actuator in my wife's 2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE. Were is it and how hard is it to replace.


its hard job if first time doing mechanic work.problem could be the temperature control switch also.to get to the air door actutor you have to remove instrument panel cluster and remove lower right sound insulator and lower left sound insulator panel and knee bolster from below the steering column.first you need to disable airbag in the steering wheel and passenger side dash before working around the dash area.to disable airbags turn off radio disconnect negative battery cable wait 20 minutes let airbag discharge first before attempting to work around the dash or instrument cluster. like i said hard job if first time you have remove a lot of things to get to the heater core housing where air door actutor and defrost actutator locations.

1996 grand am instrument panel cluster is not working


Open driver side door, remove fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel and check the instrument cluster 10A fuse behind on the fuse block (third row from the top, fourth fuse position note: first two position may be empty). If fuse checks out the connector behind the instrument cluster may have worked loose. Remove steering column covers, remove bezel around the instrument panel (this is held on with push clips), remove four screws from the cluster and ease the cluster out just enough to see and correct the problem. hope this has helped.

I just replaced fuel pump on my 99 pontiac grand


Anytime when there is multiple issues, I pick one system when the problem is ongoing, check voltage and ground.
The fuses in picture is for instrument cluster, Check for voltage at the fuses when problem is ongoing. Use a test lite. As you can see, one fuse is hot all the time, the other goes hot with the key on.

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.
