Sounds to me like you have two common failures on your car. One is the fuel sending unit in the tank (on the A4, which uses a similar design, this is a known issue, causing wrong or erratic readings on the gauge). The temp gauge is a failure of the coolant temperature sensor, another known issue with Audi. Both sensors can be bought through a dealer of course, but they're going to be ridiculously expensive. On my A4, I usually buy from www.germanautoparts.com or www.ecstuning.com - both have a lot of parts and knowledge, and their prices are very good.

Gas gauge reads 3/4 when full and temp. won't come up past the cld mark. could this be a fuse issue?


Sounds like it could be an instrument cluster fuse or a possible ground issue. fuse would be easier. Did you have anything added recently such as a stereo or remote car start system?

The gas guage and temperature guage in my 02 cavalier are not working properly. half of the time the temp guage stays below 40 and will not go up and when i fill up the car and start it the gas guage will...


Hi, take the connector off the temp sensor, turn the key on, and have someone watch the gauge while you insert a paperclip to short the terminals together inside the connector. If the gauge goes from one extreme to the other when the terminals are connected, the cluster is probably OK. It may just be that both sensors are bad.

79 c10 - guages all read low except gas guage which reasd high. Truck runs fine. Lights work, even the dash lights work good.


It sounds like you might have a poor ground connection somewhere. You can test each individual gauge for full travel by grounding the wire the goes the each gauges individual sender. In other words to check the temp gauge, ground the wire that goes to the temp sender. The temp sender is in the left cylinder head between the #1 and #2 spark plug ( looks like a brass pipe plug with a single wire coming from it) if you ground the wire with the key on (engine off) the gauge should go to the end of the scale (hot) with the wire off it should go to full cold. You can do this with the gas gauge too but not the amp gauge or volt meter. If the volt gauge is reading low (if it has one) and you know that battery voltage is good (don't guess, measure with a multi-meter) there has to be a poor connection somewhere.

Gas gage show full all the time


it could be the cluster. but first find out if the pump and the sender unit is one. you may have not disconnected the right plug if you did disconnect the right plug your instrument cluster could be bad

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

Temp gauge on dash panel goes from cold to hot without engine run


cluster or wiring problems find a good cluster and switch it out see if that works if it dosnt take to a mechanic and get your wiring checked it also might be a fuse with cross wiring

Check gauges light


Possible bad guage, bad wiring, or bad sending unit. Check each one independently of each other, start with wiring first, then sending unit.
