I just bought a 03 cavalier today. here's what happened, let the car run as I looked it over, I let the car run, no over heating. I bought it, put 10$ of gas it was 1/8 the ten brought it to 3/4, little...

Hi Vanessa; It appears that your problem is a very common complaint with MANY Cavalier and Sunfire models (2001-2005).

Many remedies or solutions include doing the following:
  • Check for a bad ground connection
    • check the existing ground strap for any oxidation (green stuff)
    • partially broken or fully broken ground strap
      • ground strap from the battery to engine block
      • ground strap from the engine block to the frame or firewall
    Replace the strap(s)

  • Check the cluster gauges for poor or missing solder connections; or some that may have loosened.
Re-solder the connections or replace the instrument cluster with either a new, rebuilt, or used instrument cluster from either the OEM, third party vendor, or junk yard.

  • Check the fuse panel for blown fuses; service manual notes (depending upon style model) that there are either 1 or 2 fuses that controls the instrument gauge cluster; (maybe marked CLUSTER or CLS/PCM; or BCMCL).
  • In the event the fuse(s) are not blown:
    • Disconnect the battery ground cable from the battery
    • Remove the fuse(s); turn ignition key cylinder to AUX position (not "start" or "run" positions), wait about 30 seconds, to fully discharge remaining capacitor voltage to any of the car's electronic control modules.
    • Reconnect the ground cable to the battery
    • and re-insert the fuses that were removed
Hopefully this will resolve the problem. Unfortunatley, I have read where some car owners have replaced their instrument gauge clusters 3 times; which leads me to believe one of two things; either there is a serious defect in the manufacture of these instruments (but I have not seen any mandatory or voluntary recall by NHTSA or GM) or because of some sort of owner related improper battery jumping procedures- causing a voltage spike, etc.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1986 chevy truck, the gauge/idle fuse blowes when you turn the key. The gas gauge and other gauges dont work but runs good. Any suggestions

It could be a short in the instrument cluster-maybe one of the non-working gauges. You could pull the cluster out and try to find it, or just try another cluster from a salvage yard.

Radiator fan not working in 93 Dodge Spirit V-6. Temp gauge in instrument cluster inside works fine. Is there a separate or dedicated coolant temp sensor for rad fan, different than the temp sensor...

in fuse box there should be a relay marked "fan" swap it for another relay say from heater and see if this fixes problem, also check if fan spins freely, it may be causing fuse to blow if it is a bit old& seized

Why does my lexus es300 keep blowing the gauges fuse

I don't know if you've fixed it yet but check the shifter position switch (usually located below the shifter). Just unplug it, replace the fuse and see what happens. The problem is either in that switch or in the wiring between that switch and the gauge cluster.

If that doesn't work you'll need to get a wiring diagram for the gauge cluster, pull the cluster out, and clip the wires for the shifter position switch one at a time until you clip the one and the fuse doesn't blow anymore.

That should solve the problem for you.

Belief it or not your problem may be at one off your electric fans, also a possibility your a/c compressor coil shorted, so disconnect your a/c condenser fan and your a/c compressor check them for short and replace has needed, here is the logic every time you turn your heater on defrost it will cycle your a/c and it will blow your fuse, there is a circuit breaker on fuse box by left kick panel way up make sure it is in good condition push on it and you will feel it click if trigger, is not spring back it may be at fault to, replace it. good luck
