Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
None of the above instruments are working on a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2.4 DOHC....have looked at the all the fuses (inside and under hood) and can't find anything labeled instrument cluster or panel...any suggestions as to what might be causing this??? read somewhere that it could be as simple as undoing the battery cables and resetting computer to a speed sensor??? does any of this sound right????

I remove two panel underneath the steering column. The first panel is removed using a 10 mm socket. The second panel is removed using a torx socket (can't remember the size). Removing these two panels gives you room to get to the clip on speedomter. Looking at the speedometer, you should see two rectangular holes on each side of the speedometer cover. I use a awl to push in the clip (you could use a screwdriver). Looking underneath the dash, you should be able to see the clip you are pushing on with the awl. I take my 2nd awl and put it behind the clip. I get the left side to release. One the speedometer cover releases, you can see the speedometer. You will see the 4 torx screws (t20) and two smaller clips holding the speedometer. All that is left is the wiring. (I take a sharpie pen and mark one of my wire locations on the speedometer. I am not sure what it does. It is a single wire.)

have you got a dimmer switch on your model to dim the dash lights. if you have it may be faulty. link the cables together if the lights work the switch is faulty. if you have not got a dimmer switch
your printed circuit on the back of the dash may be faulty or the plug in the back of the dash is not pushed all the way in. hope this helps

it is not the same.
if you are changing the cluster because some functions are intermittent,check the solders on the pc board...
