    My wife's 2001 pontiac aztek just started to do what you were talking about. She'll be driving down the road then all of the sudden the lights turn off and come back on a little later along with the radio and the instrument lights, gear shifter lights and window and door lock lights. Any info what can fix this problem?

    We have the same problem, driving down the road and the lights go off or flash on and off , the windows and dorrs lock, and it will read "Locked" on the radio display. We have discovered that if we turn the light switch from auto to manual, that alleviates the headlight issue, but it's like the display is possessed. What causes this?

1998 chevy cavalier where is the BCM (body control module) located?


You have no idea what your messing with . Theft light on , DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored . Before you start replacing BCM an making matters worse ,do yourself a favor an take it to a qualified repair shop .
The powertrain control module (PCM) communicates with the instrument cluster using serial data over the UART serial data bus, CKT 800. When the instrument cluster determines a Pass Theft condition, the instrument cluster sends a coded password to the PCM. When the instrument cluster receives the correct password, the PCM enables the fuel injection system in order to allow the vehicle to operate normally. The PCM may allow the vehicle to start and stall quickly during a failed theft condition.

The Passlock™ lock cylinder is a locking cylinder that turns a rotating magnet past a stationary hall effect sensor. The rotating magnet creates a resistance code (R-Code) that the cylinder sends to the instrument cluster. The Passlock™ lock cylinder interfaces with the instrument cluster through a 3 wire connection. The 3 wires have the following functions:
• Power
• Ground
• Data
The THEFT SYSTEM indicator will not light under any circumstances.
Replace the instrument cluster.
For Chevrolet vehicles, refer to Instrument Cluster Replacement .
For Pontiac vehicles, refer to Instrument Cluster Replacement .
Multiple indicators light continuously.
Test for a loss of serial data. Refer to Data Link Communications System Check .
Instrument cluster DTC B1021 sets.
The DTC indicates a loss of powertrain control module (PCM) serial data. Refer to Data Link Communications System Check .
Instrument cluster DTC B1022 sets.
The DTC indicates a loss of SIR serial data. Refer to Data Link Communications System Check .

WHY is MY INSTUMENT panel not working?


Try slapping your hand on the dash above the instrument cluster a couple of times to see if it comes back. If not, there may be a fuse that you have overlooked

2003 1500HD 4x4 instument cluster not working


you may want to trace the fuse for the instrument panel check the voltage on it ,take juice from some other fuse and help it ,for more options you may want to trace both ground and power to the back of the instrument cluster,if fuse has no power relay or bad wire may be the fault

95 saab 900 turb0 gauge cluster works intermetanly


I have this problem too and my new Saab mechanic told me that I would probably need a new instrument cluster. He said a brand new one costs $2500 but that he would order me a used one from a car that had fewer miles than mine as you can set them back but not forward. He both diagnosed and temporarily "fixed" the problem by slamming his hand really hard on the dash over the panel and all the lights and gauges immediately started working fine....for now. I haven't had the work done yet (I have a 1998 Saab 900S with 130K) so if anyone has any other ideas about this I would love to know what they are. This issue with the gauges and dash lights has been happening on and off for over a YEAR and this is the first time someone has had any idea what it is. I already had my ignition switched replaced so we know that's not what it was. THANKS

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it
