I just bought a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville and now the system monitor light is on why and what does that mean?


No other messages in the driver info center ?
This section provides an overview of the instrument cluster operation as well as a detailed diagnosis. The instrument cluster serves as the primary interface for the vehicle's driver.
The instrument cluster contains a microprocessor as part of the instrument panel assembly. The instrument cluster performs the following functions:
• Recognizes operational malfunctions
• Alerts the driver through indicators
• Stores DTCs which identify malfunction areas
In order to perform all of these functions, the instrument cluster microprocessor has its own inputs, outputs and program software. The instrument cluster has the capability to diagnose malfunctions in the following components:
• The sensors
• The input switches
• The components
• The systems the instrument cluster communicates with or controls
When the instrument cluster or another microprocessor-controlled module detects a malfunction, the instrument cluster may turn on an instrument cluster indicator in order to alert the driver that a malfunction has occurred. Some indicator lamps have dual controls. Your best bet is have it checked for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes !

Can i change out the mph instrument cluster to kph cluster in a 2005 nissan pathfinder


if the speed range between the two are different then along with the instrument cluster you will have to change the VSS "vehicle speed sensor" in the transmission as it will read incorrectly if you do not.

Where are the bulbs for the intrument cluster in a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue. Half the instrument cluster lights are out, so I think that one of the bulbs has blown. I dont know where the bulbs are located.


When you remove the instrument cluster, the back side will have a printed circuit board that the bulbs and bulbs holders twist into.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.
