You need to find a code book or someone who can get their hands on one. Usually a parts house can tell you what a code stands for.

Gage problems can be caused by low battery or computer malfunction. Is the engine light on?

Where is chime module located on 2005 ford taurus


There is no chime module ,there is a speaker inside the instrument cluster.
Door Ajar Chime
The door ajar chime feature is controlled by the smart junction box (SJB). The driver and passenger door ajar switches, and the liftgate are hardwired to the SJB. If any door or liftgate is sensed as being open, and the ignition switch is in RUN/START position, the SJB will process the input and sends a chime request to the instrument cluster over the controller area network (CAN).
Safety Belt Warning Chime
The safety belt chime feature is controlled by the restraints control module (RCM). The driver safety belt switch is hardwired to the RCM. The RCM communicates with the instrument cluster over a hardwire connection. If at any time during the first 6 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in RUN the driver safety belt is sensed as being unfastened, the RCM will process the input, and in turn, sends a chime request to the instrument cluster.
Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ,not OBD 2 codes , the check engine light has nothing to do with this .

Which pins or wires do i test on a 2005 silverado instrument cluster for a faulty voltmter and speedometer


You haven't a clue what your messing with , no wires to check , The stepper motors in the cluster . GM had problems with them 2003 to 2006 . All the information for the instrument cluster comes from the PCM on class two serial data bus . Control module communication network . How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper The only way to check signal to instrument cluster is with a GM Tech 2 factory scan tool .There is a computer chip inside the cluster.
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed on the analog speedometer based on the vehicle speed signal from the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4,000 pulses/mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed.

Tachamererter intermit dont work


Tachometer failures are very common on this brand. The tach will tend to hop around first and then just stop.
The most common failure for this concern is a faulty tach in the instrument cluster. This can be checked by using a scan tool to observe the instrument cluster data for the r.p.m. signal, if the scan tool shows a tach signal (RPM) signal then the instrument cluster isn't displaying this signal and is faulty and needs replaced or repaired.

Hope helps.

Fuel gauge needle way past full, holding temp needle down so I cannot read temp either! 2005 with no low beams. Could problem be related?


Most likely this is the common 03-05 Cavalier instrument cluster problem where the stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board go out. It can be fixed, check this page for more on how to get it taken care of - Cavalier fuel gauge broken
