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.

THANKS, STEV

    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.

2003. Why won't it start?


Is the security light lit on the instrument cluster ? Let's clear up some of your info ! Won't start as in the engine cranks over an won't start or engine will not crank over no start ? The starter has to crank over the engine for it to start an run ! An depending on which it is , it changes the whole diagnostic routine !

I HAVE A 2003 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX I REMOVED THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER TO REPLACE A BURNT OUT BULB UPON RE INSTALLING IT NONE OF THE GAUGES WORK AND THE PRELIMINARY LIGHTS SUCH AS THE AIRBAG ABS CHECK ENGINE...


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.

Hello, Im a US Marine and dont know alot about automotive but Im not completly numb... My father in-laws 2003 4x4 dodge pick has been blowing fuse #18 which when blown or removed the dash lights go out......


That fuse also supplies illumination to the radio, hvac controller, cup holder and cigarette tray. I think the best thing to do is start unplugging each one of these until the fuse stops blowing. Then plug the last think in that you unplugged to make sure that makes the fuse blow. If you suspect the instrument cluster start with that first.
