1989 chevy s10 ignition/gages fuse keeps blowing


If you think there is a problem with instrument cluster, unplug the instrument cluster, see if it still blows the fuse. Could be a wiring circuit problem, somewhere? Maybe fuse box issue?
Sometimes, I use a test light in place of the fuse, to keep from blowing all my fuses. If the test light comes on, the circuit is going to ground, somewhere. If the instrument cluster is unplugged, then hopefully, that is ruled out.

If possible check all running lights,they are usually on the same circuit. You may want to put a circuit breaker in place of fuse for testing

I have a 2003 gmc envoy. The gauges light up but the needles don't work. Is there a fuse to check?


Take out the instrument cluster and spray both the connector and the socket with electronics contact cleaner. Plug them back together and see if it works for you. You may also check the underdash fuse box, but it is doubtful it's a fuse issue as you are getting power.

Instrument Panel keeps blowing fuses


It isn't the ground; if you lost the ground, it wouldn't be blowing fuses-it wouldn't be doing anything.
There may be a short in the panel, or in the wiring to it. You will need to pull the instrument cluster out to investigate. If the wiring and connectors look good, probably need a new cluster.

Hi.

The Meter fuse controls the circuit energizing the odometer in the instrument cluster. If the fuse blow there is usually a short in the circuit powering the instrument panel or in the connections at the back of the instrument panel.

Instrument panel keeps shorting out. Sometimes it comes on and then shuts off. I looked at the fuses no prblems, had the battery replaced and it is still happening. Any ideas? GMC 2004 Envoy


You need a new instrument cluster. GM has had many problems concerning this, and haas released a TSB for it. The only repair is to replace it with a new one.

Insturmentation panel lights fuse blows when i start car


Try to remove the instrument panel and disconnect the harness to see if doing that gets rid of the blown fuse when starting the car. If it does, then the instrument panel should be replaced with another. If the fuse still blows when starting, then there is a wire shorted to ground somewhere.

My truck keeps blowing the instrument panel fuse.


My 2002 F350 keeps blowing fuse 45. I lose the instrument cluster (all gauges) and there is no throttle response. Sounds like a wire for the od button is shorting out in the steering column. Remove the ignition switch and column shroud and look for a bare wire. be sure and look by where the boot sits. I am just looking for more info before I try it myself. Hope this works for others.
