2005 Cavalier- Issue with all gauges

I bought mine in 2006 the problem did not begin until 2007. First to peg out was the Temp gauge, the Gas, RPM, and Speedometer; is this a common issue? I live in Sacramento, and it can get up to the triple digit degrees in the summers. It is really just a heat issue? I had a mechanic tell me there is bulletin out regarding this specific issue regarding 2003-2005 Chevy Cavaliers- can anyone substantiate this- and does that mean the dealer will fix the issue for free?

A bulletin is only to help a mechanic with a known problem a safty campaign would be a free fix,But if you could confirm this bulletin applies to your problem and ypu would call GM customer assitance(phone # in your owners manual) I am sure they would help you defer the cost.

My gas and temp gauge doesnt work. When i turn on the car they spin all the way around. i never know how much gas i have.


This is common on the 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters, it's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and can be fixed. Check out this site for more on how to get it repaired - Cavalier gas gauge broken

Temp gauge/Tach gauge question


Make sure your battery is charged fully and the terminals are very clean. Get a free stress test at a parts store. If you have a charger, connect it up and see if that solves the problem. Voltage levels that might allow the car to start and run fine may be low enough to cause electronics problems with radios, gauges and locking mechanisms.

Im having problems with my gauges on a 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo. The lights will flash on and off for all the functions such as low gas, tow haul mode, the fuel gauge, speedometer, rpm guage, and...


I've had my 2005 Grand Cherokee into the dealer 5 times for the same issue and they've replaced a bunch of stuff, but have not found the problem yet. A quick fix, I've found, is to jiggle the key in the ignition. Doesn't fix the problem, but it does stop everything from going crazy! Let me know if anyone has the actual fix.
