I have seen this before and found the Dash insert is defective, Go to address 17 and carry out a final control segment test for the dash when the fault occurs also make sure there are no battery management fault codes.

Restriction of functions
The following are deactivated in the event of
active load intervention by the battery and
energy management system:
- Interior lighting
- Sunroof
- Light/humidity sensor
- Interior mirror

Check you ambient in car lighting settings in the mmi user functions for current settings

Park brake uses 58d terminal and the rest use 58s terminal from memory

THESE ARE POSSIBLE CAUSES TO YOUR PROBLEM. CLASS 2 CIRCUIT IS OPEN SHORTED TO GROUND OR TO B+. THE PCM IGNITION POWER CIRCUITS HAS A HIGH RESISTANCE CONDITION. THE PCM MAIN GROUND CIRCUITS HAS A HIGH RESISTANCE CONDITION. THE SDM MODULE COULD BE SHORTED PULLING THE VOLTAGE LOW. THIS MORE LIKELY DEALERSHIP FIX.

Changed the battery in my 03 tahoe, now none of the guags work


Your best bet have the instrument cluster tested . Hooking it up to a factory scanner is the best first diagnostic step . Checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Checking cluster data , all gauge info. come's from the BCM or PCM over the class 2 serial data network . Class2 data is a communication network for the control modules . Are their any light's lit on the instrument cluster ? Check engine , ABS , Air bag etc..... GM also had instrument cluster problems from 2003 to 2006 , stepper motor's that drive the gauge needls , silver migration -google that one.

Speedometer fuse 2003 buick regal


No fuse just for the speedometer , fuse for whole instrument cluster . No reset either , hooking up a factory scan tool to check for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes in the instrument cluster or BCM - body control module . Could be a bad stepper motor in the instrument cluster . GM vehicles from 2003 to 2006 had bad stepper motors .

Does the 98 Ford F-150 5.4 triton have two coolant sending units? I found the one on the intake and replaced it and still no gauge.


Has CHT - cylinder head temp. sensor . This sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM sends engine temp info on serial data network to the instrument cluster . I/C has a microprocessor inside . Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not OBD2 codes , B - body codes . The gauge could be the problem , which means replacing the instrument cluster .
Engine coolant temperature information is received by the instrument cluster from the PCM over the SCP network. Temperatures over 121°C (275°F) will display hot (H). If the engine coolant temperature data is missing or invalid for five seconds, the instrument cluster will move the engine coolant temperature gauge below the cold (C) position.
The best way to diagnose this is with a scan tool , factory or a professional type . Know how the system works and not replacing parts is the proper way to diagnose .
U1073 D073 SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Engine Coolant PCM CARRY OUT the PCM self-test.
  • A single gauge does not return to zero with the ignition switch off
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . TEST the system for normal operation.

  • Incorrect temperature gauge indication
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • PCM.
  • Engine coolant temperature sensor.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test F .

I should also point out that if the temp sensor were bad the vehicle may not run right .
Using the factory scan tool
Trigger instrument cluster active command ENGCOOLNT. Monitor the engine coolant temperature gauge while adjusting the ENGCOOLNT active command to read 50% and 100%.
  • Does the temperature gauge start at cold, move to half at 50%, and full hot at 100%?
Yes REFER to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

No INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . REPAIR the circuit. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop !

GM instrument clusters 2003 - 2006 had problems with gauge stepper motors . Having the vehicle hooked up to a professional grade or factory scan tool that can view this kind of data would be necessary ! This information comes from the PCM/ECM - engine computer over the class 2 serial data bus or network communications .

My speedometer works but my digital odometer does not work on my 2003 old alero


This is one guy's advice: Replace the speedo head, that should take care of the problem."

This site is also interesting because the guy said
General Motors cars had instrument cluster problems from 2003 through 2006. When I researched instrument cluster problems on the Internet what I found raised concerns in me. Many of those vehicles had problems that began with the instrument cluster, but eventually led to the engine refusing to start.
(an electronic instrument cluster, digital instrument panel or digital dash for short, is a set of instrumentation, including the speedometer, that is displayed with a digital readout rather than with the traditional analog gauges. Many refer to it simply as a digital speedometer.)

How do I check and replace engine oil sensor.


Knowing how these gauges work , I'd say you have an instrument cluster problem not oil sender unit. 2003 - 2006 GM had bad stepper motors in the instrument cluster . If there was a problem with the oil sender the gauge would default to zero .
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.

?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

If you don't know what class 2 serial data communications are ,google it. How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

I need to know how to fix my electrical issue,the cluster,door locks and power windows don't work


GM had bad stepper motors inside the instrument cluster,2003 to 2006 . These stepper motors control the gauge needles . Sounds like you have a few different problems . Instrument cluster has nothing to do with the A/C , radio , windows , locks . One possibility mite be that they all share a common ground . Do you know what wiring diagrams are ? How to read an use one ,along with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test automotive electrical circuit's ?

Ignition switch??? temperature guage not working- sending unit keeps blowing, also dash lights will sometimes go out. and when car is running, tilt the wheel down semi hard and will shut car off!! also...


Do you have a professional scanner ,do a scan of the whole vehicle . Instrument cluster , BCM , etc... Not OBD2 scan from autozone or advance etc.... thier tool can't check the whole vehicle network . The control module's on your vehicle all share information on what is called a serial data bus ,or communication network. ( temperature guage not working- sending unit keeps blowing, ) I don't think the sending unit is the problem , an it's not a sending unit . It's a engine coolant temperature sensor ,an it's a input to the PCM/ECM - engine computer . The engine computer send's this info. to the instrument cluster on the GMLAN data network . GM had problem's with stepper motors in the instrument clusters . The stepper motor control's the gauge needle.2003 to 2006

Also sounds like you have wiring harness issue's ,finding an viewing wiring diagrams an using a DMM - digital multi-meter to test affected circuit's is the way to a fix. Not guessing !
