On the back of the instrument panel is a voltage stabilizer, so the charge rate does not affect the gauges, if all gauges have stopped functioning it is possible the stabilizer has lost its power supply or the unit has gone open circuit.

I would check and see if you need to replace a blown fuse. You could disconnect the battery temporarily to reset the radio. You may have to have your radio repaired or replaced by a professional.

Temp. gauge not moving. replaced sender, sensor, and gauge. PLEASE HELP


My info shows the temp sender is not the coolant temp sensor, if wiring is correct. The temp sender is a one wire connector, I believe yellow wire. Take that wire loose from temp gage sender, key on, use a digital multimeter, any voltage on the wire? If not not have to check proper wire colors to and from instrument cluster. The voltage comes from meter fuse. I wouldn't think the fuse is the issue or you would have more than one problem.

No guages working


If all voltages checked ok, then most probably its faulty instrument cluster board on which gauges are connected. Yes if cluster circuit board looks ok, then also it can be faulty. Somewhere there is minute short or burn on board then such problem arises.


Also check the fuse box. One under hood and other under dash.

Inspect each and every fuse and see if all are fine or not.

The instrument cluster on my 2003 Chevy Cavalier has been gradualy going out over the past year. first the temp gauge stopped working, then the speedo would read higher than actual speed and now it is dead...


I can't understand how the bad cluster would prevent you from fueling. The instrument cluster can be repaired. Look up specmo.com . I had mine repaired there. Quick turnaround. Previous to using Specmo, I tried Two parts from salvage yard and both turned out to be bad. Dealer wanted about $500 to do the repair. I did removal and install, Specmo repaired my cluster for around $125.
