Ive had this problem its the fuse in the compartment. its for the AC, its a little 5 or 10 amp fuse. does the AC (not the fan) in your car still work???
cant remember which fuse it is under the hood but its because your AC compressor clutch is going.. so keep replacing fuses or get a new compressor for a grand

I think you're going to need a new cluster. I don't have your wiring diagram, but my 2000 camaro wiring diagram is below. It has a logic device built in that controls the temp and fuel gages.
The same chip also runs the bulb test at startup. I found a used cluster online here for 70 bucks: http://instrumentclusterstore.com/I852-3662-P1152C4337.aspx

A new one from GM is about $240.

2000 acura tl coolant fan after fluid change


New thermostat, installed, saw, new coolant made a little mess filling reservoir, (normal) checked fan fuse for some reason, and condenser fan fuse (xxx ?:), and temp guage, is slightly lower on gauge (than normal?) (disconnected xxxx? quit? a bit? to get to thermosta?.t no dash warning lights have a feeling I popped a relay.

Answer:

ok, you did a coolant service with STAT,

and it failed.

tell us what works right and wrong, symptoms only.

over heating? parked, (fan never comes on)? as it hits 225F?

under heating? ( fan stuck on , up North can cause huge cold engine)

dash gauge stuck low. (thermostat wrong heat range 180f is best. see FSM for spec. on this temp. spec..

Dash guage varies.? oddly (air in system)?

Dash gauge too high.? (Stat put in upside-down or bleed hole (jiggle) not UP side. higher side of mount , trapping air.)

Does something wrong happen only driving?

leaks?

does cap on rad hold 12-14psi pressure, hot.?

if car has fan belts, are they tight? (for sure water pump does)

Where is the check engene light located


Most check engine lights are built in the instrument cluster with your water temp guage,fuel guage oil light or guage and all of the other warning lights.The check engine light will come on when you turn the key on and immediately go out unless there is a problem then the light will flash telling you a problem is detected and then stay on when the problem has to be corrected.Hope that helps and have a good night.

My brother has leant me his 1993 Ford fairmont EB11. A red light is flashing intermiitanly it looks like a fan in some kind of cylinder. Could someone tell me what it is?


  • Full instrumentation pack (four ancillary guages plus tachometer) - with volt meter & oil pressure guage.
  • Speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, fuel guage & water temperature guage standard in addition to the above.
  • WARNING LIGHTS: High beam, rear window demist on, turn signal / hazard light, alternator fail, lights on, park-brake on, washer fluid low, radiator coolant low, cruise control indicator and low oil pressure.
  • AUDIBLE WARNING CHIMES: low fuel, lights on, low alternator charge, low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and brake failure.
  • Trip Computer standard featuring fuel consumption figures, distance to empty, average speed & time display.
I found this site, no mention of the fan in a cylinder, but I'll let you figure it out. Hope this helps.

Fuel guage, temp. gauge , or speedometer do not work. Only happens when the ABS light comes on. If ABS light goes out the gauges all come back on


Could your ignition key be sticking to far forward and staying there when released? I have had cars and trucks do this and it messes up stuff. If it is sticking and not coming back to the on position when starting the vehicle then get out the WD 40 and give ita shot.
I hope this helps, The Raz

Coolant is leaking around intake manifold and temp gauge is not working on my 2000 chevy malibu 3.4 litre


the manifold gasket must be shot on the manifold. usually when the gasket goes bad it puts oil into the coolant, as far as the guage not working. it must be the thermostat is bad, it probably went bad because of the manifold gasket. I have a 3.1 and the gasket went bad, so I changed it and the thermostat at the time I had it torn down. check to see if the coolant has oil in it. the best thing to do is go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your specific vehicle, this is based on a complete teardown of vehicle, the book will describe the procedure to change manifold gasket. but if you change the gasket do not forget to replace thermostat and coolant when done. best of luck Toolman,

2000 Chevy Malibu- check engine light


Have the DIS module checked and the coil pack for cyl 3. If either/both of those need replaced, have it done and have the codes cleared. Then see if it clears the others.

You may need a TPS (throttle position sensor) as well.
