First go to the bank. Usually the instrument cluster is controlled by a circuit board that is replaced by removing the dash, steering column and air bags which are dangerous to fool with. Any yellow wiring is air bag related so watch out.

Tranmission and instrument cluster


The speed sensor on your trans sends a signal to the electronics telling it when to shift, this will be where you fault is.

I have a 1999 pontiac sun fire when I am driving sometimes my speedometer works and then it drops off do you know a fix.


does the check engine light come when this happens some vehicles when the speedometer stops working then the check light comes on does the engine change in the way it runs either at cruise or accelerating then this indicates a speed sensor in the transmission has an intermintant problem if there is no check engine light or change in the way the car runs then it is possible the problem is in the speedometer head or connections at the instrument cluster for the speedometer if the light is on then you need to have the computer checked to see if a code is set for the sensor,if so then that is probably were the problem is keep in mind it can also be a poor connection at the sensor,if this not were the problem is then it probably is in the cluster for the speedometer head or the speedometer head itself

No check engine lite on 91 olds it never comes on stuck at work


the 3.5 to 5 volt signal is a reference signal generated by the ECM. I believe the current runs through the check engine bulb before it comes to that particular connector. what you need to do is perform a instrument cluster bulb test by turning the ignition switch in between run and start. in other words you pretend like you're going to crank the motor but you don't turn the ignition switch all the way to where it actually starts cranking in the engine. just before the switch engages the starter of your instrument balls should light including the check engine light bulb. it does not light you need to pull the instrument cluster in replace the bulb, it is probably burned out. good luck .

1999 Oldsmobile Alero Gauge problem


Could be lose connection on the back of the instrument cluster ,which means you would need to pull it out of the vehicle . Check pin fit to instrument cluster . for the B+ voltage suppy an ground connection's .
You said autozone - Tried to have auto zone diagnose from inside the car, came up with no codes. That's in the PCM - engine computer . There scan tool will not communicate with the instrument cluster ,which is also a computer in it's self. Need a factory scan tool to check instrument cluster.
