In the engine compartment, to the rear of the engine, there is a little braided strap that goes from an engine bolt too the firewall. Since the body is best ground to the engine because of it's connection to the battery this little grd strap is important if the body mounting has a poor ground.Check for the securement of this strap. Now when you say A/C quits that would be the blower fans? The other possibility would be a primary power supply, which would only be the battery. If that connection is lost that everything goes haywire or quits working altogether.Do me a favor and let me know the findings, please. If need be we will go further on the issue. Good Luck, -Ned-.

Replaced the idler pulley on my 01 Altima, so therefore i had to raise the engine up to get to the pulley, after putting everything back together & starting the car I noticed the guages didn't work on...

check the area around the engine where you raise the motor it sounds like you may have pulled a power wire out of its location, take a good look around,

your gage has just gone out and needs to be replace. the computer control the fan. so as long as the temp sensor is connected to the engine it will work fine but you will not know the temp of your vehicle.

My 2001 Saturn will not shift from park

When my 2001 L200 did this it was the body control module. There is a button under the shifter boot that will allow you to put the car in gear. It did not effect the engine so you can drive it but it will do all kind of weird things with the lights, door locks, and gauges.

You need to find an authorized Saturn repair center or a good Chevy dealer. Some independents can fix it as well.
