Wonder about your stoplight, taillight? Most of that stuff runs off the accessories fuse. Check that fuse to see if it is blown. If it is, replace it and see what happens. If it blows immediatly, you've got a dead short somewhere. If it stays there, you may have an intermittent short. The intermittant short is a bear to find because it's tough to fix a problem when it ain't there. Electrical problems are always difficult and this about the best information I can give you. It's a starting point.

Good Luck
Steve

I suggest you check the location in the vehicle handbook of the fuel pump inertia switch which is designed to trip out in a collision. A large bump in the road could have caused the switch to trip.

My speedometer stopped working


If the speedo and odometer are both dead, you should have shifting problems and a check engine light. The speed sensor in the transmission has probably died.
If the speedo does not work but the odometer does, chances are the problem is in the speedometer head.

Hi I'm Rick! I'm afraid you have a cluster problem, the cluster houses the gauge package you see in front of you.. all your gauges operate from the printed circuit board to which they are attached and a portion of that board has failed.. The fix is to replace the cluster.

My check engine light comes on and my speedometer and odometer stop working until I hit a bump and then they start working


Hi, I can tell you that I was having a simular problem with my 2001 Chevy Silverado. The check engine light would come on and I lost both the speedometer and odometer. I also lost gas gauge, and oil pressure gauge.I would hit a bump and they would start working, but light would stay on. I bought the obd-2 meter to read codes and erase them so the light went off. This continued for 8 months. Finally, I started moving wires around under dash when gauges stopped and they would come on and off? Took me right to the circuit board on the ignition switch. I mean I tried everything possable to solve this and told a G.M. mechanic. He said I was right that it would be the switch and that most of you're wires that go to gauges and speedometer come from the ignition switch. I changed it and it has been fine since. You might try what I did see if you can do this while driving, i don't no, but if so be carful on the road. You may need to take it in also.There is something loose a ground wire or hot doing this. I would bet it is in the ignition switch. Best of luck,

The dash, tail and front side lights are all on the same fuse, and possibly the ignition supply to the stereo. check fuses to see if it has blown.

One of my driving lights went out after hitting a bump on a dirt road, how do I replace the bulb? It's not the headlight, it's the driving light or fog light.

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.

Sounds like your car doesn't like bumps!

The abs control modules on these fail regularly due to breaks in the circuit board solder joints. It could be that hitting the bump make the fault occur. There are places that will repair them, however you will need to remove it, or have it removed and send it to them to fix it, or you can replace it.

Either way, you'll need to get the problem diagnosed first., starting by reading out the faults in all the systems. The transmission, cruise control and speedometer all rely on a vehicle speed sensor signal from the abs module, so that is why so many systems are affected.
