When the lights are on and i turn the dash panel lights on all of my gauges ground out fuel gauge goes to full, blinker signal lights glow temp, and oil gauges go to high some times just turning the ignition off helps restore every thing, but sometimes the veh. has to be shut down for awhile.

1989 silverado gas gauge shows full even when cluster removed from dash.


The sending unit in the tank provides a ground to the gauge depending on the float level. The gauge can "rest" anywhere if the power and ground circuits are not connected.
You would need to know if the gauge has power and is getting a ground signal from the tank.

Guages not 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 prolem 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.
---------------For more troubleshooting on these cluster gauges i suggest you to refer the list of help links mentioned below.Its step by step instructions will help you to confirm the exact cause of problem in these conditions:---------

The word stop illuminates on the dashboard and the temperature gauge goes full scale deflection then everything returns to normal any ideas please and is it a big job to fix ?


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BULB MONITOR MODULE IS GROUNDING OUT OR GETTING A CONNECTION TO GROUND THROUGH EITHER THE MODULE FROM GETTING WET POSSIBLY,OR FROM THE TEMP GAGE CIRCUIT CAUSING BOTH TO GET "FULL SIGNAL". TEMP GAGE AND "STOP" LIGHT WARNING ON THE DASH ARE BOTH TURNED ON OR FULL SWEEP OF GAGE WHEN WIRE TO IT IS GROUNDED OUT OR HAS CONTINUITY TO GROUND.

79 c10 - guages all read low except gas guage which reasd high. Truck runs fine. Lights work, even the dash lights work good.


It sounds like you might have a poor ground connection somewhere. You can test each individual gauge for full travel by grounding the wire the goes the each gauges individual sender. In other words to check the temp gauge, ground the wire that goes to the temp sender. The temp sender is in the left cylinder head between the #1 and #2 spark plug ( looks like a brass pipe plug with a single wire coming from it) if you ground the wire with the key on (engine off) the gauge should go to the end of the scale (hot) with the wire off it should go to full cold. You can do this with the gas gauge too but not the amp gauge or volt meter. If the volt gauge is reading low (if it has one) and you know that battery voltage is good (don't guess, measure with a multi-meter) there has to be a poor connection somewhere.

2003 malibu, replace fuel pump with a bosch lifetime warranty , intake head gasket, and battery now after five days my fuel gauge dont work, the temp gauge dont work, and the bright light turn on the high...


Sounds like the body control module for the light issues,the fuel gauge works off of the fuel pump , sound like maby the wire come loose at the pump . temp gauge make shure after you replaced the intake gasket that you didnt get a wire to the temp sensor pinched or next to something that could have melted the wire,If the wire gets hot and melts it will go to ground and cause alot of the probs your having in the dash, cause the wire will ground out and send signal to the body control module which in return cause all kinds of beeps and lights to malfunction.If there is no short it is the body control mdule has gone bad and if replaced should fix your problem.

How to test fuel gauge in dash 89 chev 2500 so I can tell if the gauge or tank unit is bad. The dash fuel gauge will change 1/4-1/2 tank overnight even if the truck has not been run.


To test the gauge,unplug the connector at the tank,the fuel gauge will go to full,then ground the wire to the fuel gauge,and the gauge should go to empty,I use a test light for grounding the circuit,to keep from grounding the wrong connector,when doing so,the test light will glow dim,and the gauge will go to empty slow.

The fuel gauge is'nt working.I tryed to ground it


When testing a fuel guage you should disconnect the wires to it,guage should read over full,ground the float wire,turn off key then turn back on should read empty.You have to cycle the key for guage to move.If still inop the wire is broken in the harness between the tank and the dash.Voltage on the float wire is low.When tested with a test light it will barely light the light and pulsate.This test indicates the wiring is good.
