Good day
You have to look in under the dash and make sure the connections at the back of the cluster is in place. If that is all good then check the fuse box and make sure all fuses are in place and working correctly.
Good luck.

The dash gauges,speedometer,tach,fuel,oil,battery and coolent will stop working but will come back sometime later,


i would 1st check the power distribution black box, located under the hood, on drivers side, there inside is several relays and fuses, look onto the inside of the cover ,once it is removed, most of thes would give you a basic description of the fuses and relays, i would check the one that controls instrument panel uses, hope that this was helpful to you.

My check engine light is on, and today my temperature gauge stopped working and we have replaced the engine coolant sensor and the connector and temperature gauge still not working. PLEASE HELP


Could be the thermostat. I know nothing about cars but I noticed my 2000 Grand Prix temp gauge was not going to the normal level. My wife drives this car so I didn't notice it for a month or so. Eventually the Engine light came on. Took it to Autozone and the code came back as P0180... (1) low coolant (2) bad thermostat (3) enginge fuel temp sensor. They used a code reader that was about the size of an Ipod nano.

Coolant was okay, so took it to my mechanic. His netbook sized computer showed it was the Thermostat. He reset the codes and the temp guage went back to normal. Was short on $40 for the fix at the time, so I parked the car and promised to bring it back in 3 days. Went out and checked the car a day later at 25 degrees outside without starting the car... gauge still sitting at the normal level. No question it's the thermostat. That car will not be driven again until T.stat is fixed in 2 days.

Dash lights, rpm's/speedometer/fuel gauge etc. go out. They turn back on stay on most of the time but will go out sometimes by themselves or when I hit a bump. How do I fix the connection?


Sounds like an intermittent Earth connection. Check for a loose Earth wire bolt either behind the Dash or near the Fuse Panel.

I've got a 1991 BMW 525i which has done 253,000 km. It's been a good car but, the instrument panel on the dashboard has gone silly over the past couple of weeks. When I first start the car in the morning,...


this is just a rough guess, but i think it would be the battery or the alternator. Some part store have testers that they will check both for free.

Fuel gauge inaccurate & warning light always on.


Hi. the inaccurate fuel gauge is easily fixed by replacing the fuel guage sending unit that is located in the fuel tank. this sending unit sends the appropriate signal the the gauge on the dash. all calculations are configured by the sending unit and if this device is malfunctioning, it will not send an accurate reading to the fuel gauge. simply replacing this device will fix the fuel guage issue you are having at this time.

Concerning the Amp drain after two days. this is caused by some sort of energy drain that can be in a faulty vacuum pump that isn't shutting off or, some sort of defect in the ECM. you could also have a faulty fuel pump relay that isn't shutting of and this will slowly drain energy from the battery within a two day period as well.

You can narrow down the battery drain by using a volt meter(needle) or multimeter. open the fuse box located on the drivers side below the dash. pull the fuse box door and expose the entire fuse box. you will need to pull each individual fuse independently to test if the actual slot is being used with the ignition switch in the off position.

Use the fuse slots contact prongs for testing the current level if any. with the ignition switch off, test all slots for live current feed. each slot that is dead is not affected and you may reinsert the respective fuse but, if you run across a live slot that is receiving a current while the ignition switch is in the off position, this specific slot will be the affected device that is draining the battery.

Test all fuse box slot accordingly. you will find the drain with this procedure.

Please rate and god bless:)

Temperature gauge not working 2005 chevrolet impala


There is a temperature sensor likely to be on your radiator. Make sure the connection is plugged in. Sometimes un-plugging and plugging it back will correct the issue. If not, you'll have to have some check if the sensor is faultly or if the electric wire is fault. You can check your fuse box. I don't think it's a fuse because other things on your instrument cluster would also not work.

Some cars have a second fuse box under the hood near the battery. See if your car doesn't have one of those.
