Gauges stopped working on my 2000 Pontiac Grand am

Asked by Dec 03, 2016 at 11:43 PM about the 2000 Pontiac Grand Am

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While parked in front of my house at idle, my
gauges just stopped working. Tac and temp are
maxed out and speedometer and fuel are at 0. Is
there a fuel I should be looking for or what? Dash
lights are working and everything else seems to be
functioning properly except that and something
with the ignition pass lock, but the recall (4350 D)
online says replace the entire ignition, but the
dealership tried to tell me that recall with my vin
says only insert some plastic inserts in the key, so
not exactly sure about that, but it starts. Can
anyone tell me or point me in the direction of
where the gauge cluster fuse or relay is? Even the
odometer is off.

Sounds like a bad instrument cluster ground. If you recently installed an aftermarket stereo, I'd look there first. HTH. -Jim

Some times a hard hit on the dash will do it with your hand might have to find the right spot on my minivan all the going.
