Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

2003 Pontiac Grand Am

Start the car fine, the A/C will not blow, the instrument cluster does not work, and the radio will not play. Always comes on in a few seconds to one minute. Seems it would be the ignition switch or the BCM.

    2003 Grand Am 2.2L won't start. No instrument cluster or crank action, but radio,int/ext lights,wipers,pdls, and turn sigs all work. No power windows either. I've checked the fuse link near the starter and replaced the ignition module with no results. Also the flasher above the radio would just click irradically for no reason while the car was running.

All my gauges just quit working. car still runs fine. they done this 2 or 3 times but would always start again. this time have not come back on. turn signals and dash lights work just no gauges.

At the moment, your instrument cluster maybe faulty? Due the basic tests, try to be sure. Check for applicable trouble codes relating to instrument cluster--pcm--communication codes. Some of the national brand auto stores in this country may check codes for free, if there are any.
Check voltage and ground circuits for the instrument cluster. The sending units for gages are wired to pcm then the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster telling instrument cluster what to do with gages. If you want to check gage sending units, that's ok.

If you have a scanner that can communicate with instrument cluster, you can get instrument cluster to do a self-test. The self-test, the instrument cluster will turn warning lamps on and off, sweep gages w/o outside data input. The instrument is considered good, if it passes that test, if not, the instrument cluster is considered faulty.

How do i remove the instrument cluster in my 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

this may sound a little funny, but hands on experience is the best. go to a junk yard and experiment as to how to get it apart. Manuals do not always give you the little details you need to know. I have done this some times and it works out great when it comes to working on my own. You may also fine a good cluster that works at a good price.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix, I had a remote starter installed a few years ago. it has always worked fine until this year. now it starts the car just fine but the car does not stay running. it stalls...

Maybe it's the anti-theft system an not the remote start . Is the SECURITY light lit on the instrument cluster ? GM anti-theft systems will disable the fuel injectors if there is a problem .

did you turn your key on with the instrument cluster removed? the instrument cluster is a computer that has to be in sink with all the other computers in the car if not the security system will shut down the car. one thing you can do is make sure the plug ins are all the way in the cluster. if they are good the you will have to have the cars computer system re flashed.

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.
