It's possible but unlikely. Still sounds like your battery is shot, and if so, jumping it may not work. First I would take it out and get it tested. If OK, your next step would be to check error codes (DTCs) with a code reader to see what's going on.

Haywire gauges


The instrument cluster in this van is really a computer display and it has malfunctioned. This is a common complaint on this van and you must remove the cluster and have it rebuilt to cure the problems. Check the WEB for repair sources. They can also provide complete instructions on removal free of charge.

Envoy ignition switches are known for having intermittent problems and causing strange indications in the truck. Have the ignition switch changed and I'm pretty sure your problems will be solved.

Sometimes a bad battery connection will cause gauges go hay wired. Turn your switch on but not over and see if your gauges do the same without the car running. try loosening the battery cables and reposition the post.

This may sound silly, but pull the cables off the battery and clean the posts and terminals really well with a wire brush or post/terminal cleaning tool. (these are REALLY cheap at the parts store and work wonders!) This may be your problem. Corrosion = poor connection. If not that, try new battery. Good luck.

hope your not have the same problem that i had. i had to replace the ecu. my gauges wouldnt read and my odometer just flash and that would be it and the gas light would come on even though it had a full tank. but there one thing that you could try. replace the auto shut down relay first before you go and replace the ecu. the auto shut down shuts the computer off when you turn the key off. and if thats not working right then the computer wouldnt come on and the truck will not start and the fuel pump will not come on and the spark plugs will not fire.
