Sometimes when your hazard light flasher goes bad this might be part of the problem. I have the same kind of car and i'm on my third one in two years. As for the other problems it almost sounds like theres a loose electrical harness inside the dashboard some where.............I Hope this information was helpful Thank You For Using Fixya.com!

I have a 2003 pontiac sunfire that runs hot and then is fine for a couple weeks . have put it in the shop several time .Any ideas?


Difficult...

Running hot would come down to a blocked radiator, a collapsed hose, a faulty temperature sensor or a cylinder head/gasket problem.

it could also be the gauge or even a bad earth on a temperature sensor.

Does your car exhibit any signs of overheating .. steam .. boiling radiator ... rough running?

It's strange that it runs fine for a couple of weeks and then runs hot. To me that suggests a temperature sensor/thermostat problem coupled with the outside air temperature.

What did the workshop suggest?

Makes noise for a few seconds before starting . Radio cannot keep time anymore if car is not running


The radio has 2 power supply's. One is always on for the clock and radio memory. And the other is switched by the ignition. You need to check fuses. And possibly remove radio to check your power supply. I there is no constant power clock will only work with key on.

2003 Pontiac Sunfire - When I turn the ignition on the dash buzzes, kind of like an alarm or a loud whirring noise. The gauges do not come up right away. If I leave it for a second or 2 it will sputter...


The problem could be a power supply module that supplies various voltages to the instrument panel (IPC). If it is acting up, it can make this buzzing noise. If that is it, it will eventually fail and the IPC gauges will stop working.

Where is the DRL Module on a 2003 Sunfire?


Fuse panel left side of dash. It's not a typical module it's only a relay. Your instrument cluster has a microprocessor which energizes the relay. In another post someone said there is a resistor behind right headlamp that could be your problem, I haven't as of yet checked the schematics to confirm but sounds right.

2003 Sundifre won't STAY running


The gauge problem sounds like the common issue on the 03-05 Sunfire instrument clusters where the stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board fail over time. It can be fixed, check out this page for more on how to get it repaired - Sunfire instrument cluster fix
