I just bought an 02 GMC Savana 3500 with 350 and I was told about 120k. Bought it cheap as heck as a known project but Im kinda stumped with electrical issues.


one point I am thinking is , the mileage for the car is too low so maybe a new dash was fitted and all the plugs at the back were not correctly fitted or ground wires were not connected
an 2002 is 15 years old
average distance covered is 20 k per year so the speedo should have over 250-300 k on it

Instrument cluster illuminates intermittently on 1990 eldorado


If this is the analog intrument cluster and the entire instrument cluster is intermittently losing illumination, remove the instrument cluster light fuse and replace it with a new fuse. It is remotely possible that the actual fuse holder wires have broken due to age and would need to be soldered back together.
If this is the digital instrument cluster and the entire display is going dead, it could be anything from the wiring harness to the BCM. If it is the digital instrument cluster, I can really only recommend taking it to a reputable shop or Cadillac dealer to service.

Hello, Im a US Marine and dont know alot about automotive but Im not completly numb... My father in-laws 2003 4x4 dodge pick has been blowing fuse #18 which when blown or removed the dash lights go out......


That fuse also supplies illumination to the radio, hvac controller, cup holder and cigarette tray. I think the best thing to do is start unplugging each one of these until the fuse stops blowing. Then plug the last think in that you unplugged to make sure that makes the fuse blow. If you suspect the instrument cluster start with that first.

My 96 Cadillac Eldo keeps overheating


Hello, look on the left (driver side) front of the engine, you will see at the end of the closest to you, on the cylinder head, a pulley. This pulley runs your water pump, by a belt connection. Check and see if that belt is on.
If you are adding water, you should have it pressure tested, as it could be the water pump(which takes a special tool to replace) or a bad head gasket.
