Hi,

Begin sitting in the front passenger seat. Open the glove box. Find the screw attached to the dash board (on the left). Remove that screw. Move to the driver’s seat. Remove the narrow panel that holds the light bulb below the steering wheel. There are two plastic clips that hold that piece on the car. Removing that panel reveals a few Phillips head screws. Remove those screws. With the driver’s door open, locate the fuse panel. Remove that panel. You will see a few screws there, remove the lower screw. Next, tilt the steering wheel as low as you can get it. Slowly (using your hands only) pry the panel just above the steering wheel outward toward yourself. Slowly move toward the radio pulling the panel toward you. Once you have freed the large panel, fish your hand in behind it to disconnect the hazard button.Once that has been disconnected, pull up on the panel to move it past the steering wheel (it is a tight fit).
Let us know if you want something else please accept the solution.
Thank You for contacting fixya.com

2004 chevy montecarlo SS, speedometer not working. Replaced the speed sensor and it's still not working. What could be wrong


Lots of problems with instrument clusters on those cars. Go on line and you will find that you can have the complete cluster refurbushied for $200-250 dollars. If you have a graphing multi memter or lab scope you can check the signal from the sensor to the cluster or pay a mechanic to do it. Based on the large number I replace as a professional tech I would send the cluster out.

This job requires the complete removal of the dash from the car and dis-assembly of the duct work to replace the blend door. You must have a factory manual to have any chance of not messing this up completely.

How to change gas guage light on 1998 monte carlo?


Unfortunately the light is soldered into the circuit board of the speedometer cluster. Even after you pull the speedo cluster, you'll have a difficult time removing the bulb and finding a replacement. I see speedometer cluster techs on ebay that will do a rebuild for $100+shipping. Seems like a lot for a $0.25 bulb but . . . .
