Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

Gauges stopped working, car is now dead

It started with the gauges going haywire (first the gas, then the others followed). Now the car won't start, turn over, etc but the battery is fully charged and good.

SOURCE: Car won't start

Check the lever for putting the car in park/drive.
If the switch/sensor that detects where it is at (i.e. P, R, N, D, 2, 1) is broken or loose, it may think the car is not in Park and cars with automatic transmissions will not start unless they are in Park.
It might also be the starter is bad.

SOURCE: check gauges light

Possible bad guage, bad wiring, or bad sending unit. Check each one independently of each other, start with wiring first, then sending unit.

Gauges stop working, engine won't idle


See the YouTube video on how to repair broken solder joints on your instrument cluster connector. This takes about an hour and solves a number of intermittent problems. I think it may be under "no start" problems.

2007 Crysler 300 pulled in to get gas turned car off. now car won't start. got a jump car started. took it to auto zone. he said battery fine alternater was at 14 it was fine. gauges going haywi


The alternator may be charging at 14v but if the battery cannot hold charge, then a low voltage issue may be present. If a jumpt start worked to get the vehicle going, then I'm assuming your battery is close to dead.

When I try to start car, it won't start and security light blinks. I'v e had to ignition switches put on before and I had a new key made. Car still won,t start.


If any of the gauges are blinking and going haywire and the security light flashing then the instument cluster is faulty.But if it is just the security light flashing then its in the switch.If you only had the switch replaced then you need a new ignition lock cylinder because its worn out.

Car wouldn't start...


The alternator is bad. Your accessories like that are driven mostly on alternator power, and as soon as it goes out, everything goes haywire. You should pull the alternator off, and have it tested at your autozone, and when they tell you it's bad, then you can go ahead and get the new or remanufactured one to replace it with. The alternators on these vehicles usually go out around 60-70000 miles almost like clockwork, so if it's original, I would definitely expect it.
