04 trailblazer Why did the instrument panel gauges suddenly just stopped working causing battery to run down Jumped started and was working again Now not working?
You may have an electrical problem. need a professional tech to look at it. I just found out that it is a gauge cluster problem. This is not the first time I heard this as I did call the dealership and explained to the mechanic what was happening, he said and the same thing. It is not uncommon for this problem in trailblazers. If the gauges are not working, then your battery is not getting charged up.

What could cause all the gauges and most lights in the instrument panel of a 1998 Jeep Wrangler not to work if changing the fuses did not solve the problem?
Are the gauges mechanical or electrical? (LED DISPLAY) If it's both the gauges and the lighting, i'd use a voltmeter and probe the circuit where the fuse is that you replaced. Check to see if voltage is flowing thru. If it isn't, then there's a break in the circuit somewhere... and the hard part sta…rts. USUALLY, it's a lose ground that's either poorly bolted to the chassis, or is rusted or something that prevents it from providing the proper ground. I have the same problem in my 98 wrangler. My gages go on and off intermitantly. The dealer said it was the molex wire connector from the computer to the gage panel. They wanted $900. so im trying to find the part online. I am not a mechanic, but there is a TSB on this for my 1999 Jeep Cherokee. I was at the point I was going to replace the entire dash module, around $900 when I found the TSB. The fix is a $7 plug that plugs into the back of the module. All that needs to be done is to cut out the old plug and splice in the new one. I haven't had this problem in about 4 months, it was an every day, all day occurence. Find the TSB for the exact name of the part etc. Just ask your local dealerships service manager about it. He may not want to tell you, but he will. One my 93, the back of the instrument cluster is basically a circuit board with "ribbons" of connectors going from the main wire harness/plug. Check to see if you have appropriate signals coming from the plug itself and/or there are no breaks in these "ribbons" My dash does the same thing. I normally bump the top left front of the dash in a forward motion. That normally fixes it for a while anyways. I was told by a technision that it was to many keys on my key ring. I think dealerships just like to take you money. So unless you brother or sister is the technision don't listen to them. $900 for a new cluster is just insane. My Wrangler is a 98 almost 10 years old. who wants to spend that much to get it fixed? I have a 99 Jeep Wrangler that this happened to. I took the instrument cluster off, used compressed air to blow out the plug and reinstalled. It hasn't happen since. I think the connection gets loose over time. It's not difficult to take off the instrument cluster. Use a flat head screw driver to pry the cover off the top of the dash (over the defrost vents) and remove the screws on either side below of the steering wheel. The panel is attached on the top and bottom w/ Phillip's head screws. I haver had this problem on a Jeep that I have been working on and finaly found a bad Airbag Control Module. I replaced the module and everything started working again. (MORE)
Answer . the three possible problems to this question are . your temperature sending unit is defective ,you could have problems in your wiring harness, or your temperature gauge is inoperative. I am a licensed mechanic and i have found your best place to start is to make sure you have input power… to the sender and sensor and output to the gauge and or light in the system .If you have no output but you have input chances are your wirings fine and the sending unit or temperature sensors bad , you'll have to refer to the proper manual and check resistance.If you have output to the gauge and you have the proper voltage reference at the gauge ,chances are the gauge could be defective. \nThe most common problem is a defective sensor though. (MORE)
Answer . Battery dead or corroded battery connectors.. Also you should check the ignition module located behind steering column... you'll need to pull off the wheel in order to get to it.. requires some star bits for plastic shroud and a little muscle to remove the wheel.
Answer . Check conections located aft of dash. Check fuse block. If you can'y find it sale it. ;)
What would cause daytime running lights and check engine light and power windows and instrument gauges and lights to quit working as working?
All of these parts run on electricity, and for all of them to failwould be bad. Bad or burnt wiring could cause them not to work, ora alternator going bad could cause them not to work as well.
Why would the speedometer suddenly stop working and then the check engine light would come on then the speedometer starts working again and the engine goes off in a 91 Cavalier?

Why did your 2000 Town Car blower stop working again you jumped the blower motor from the battery it started working fine for a few months but now it stopped again?
Best guess, is that the unit should be run through a fuse panel not direct current all the time from the battery. Believe you probably burned out the motor because it was getting full current all the time from the battery

What could cause the instrument panel gauges not to work and the car not to come out of park after replacing the battery in a 2001 Saturn L200?
Not certain on the instrument cluster, could be a fuse. But as for the shifter, I'm pretty sure it IS a fuse. Same thing happened to a friend of mine with the "won't come out of park" issue, when he replaced his battery. After everything we tried it finally came down to the relays and fuse box, wher…e yes, there is a fuse for the elctronically shifted transmission. Hope this helps. (MORE)
Just replaced the battery in 2003 Trailblazer now the AC Dash vents do not work Everything else works fine Any suggestions Has anyone else had this problem?
Same Troubles I have an 04 Trailblazer and just had my battery replaced as well and a 125 amp fuse. The mechanic at the dealership told me we blew the fuse because when we jump started the suv, we crossed polarity. I told him we didn't but he wouldn't check the dash vent fuses without another labo…r charge so i am stuck with frozen feet and frosted windows for a few weeks! I was hoping to find an answer! The same problem happened to me when I replaced the battery. I too have an 03 Trailblazer. The AC works great through the defrost and the floor, but no vent! I'll keep looking for the answer. I hope someone posts the solution fast. It gets hot in Texas. Same here...'03 therr are two answeres to this problem posted on this site my best solution is to pay a dealer. You need to replace the HVAC mode actuator. This is found under the dash. Trailvoy.com has additional details on how to replace this. Do a search in their forums. They have answers to almost anything dealing with Trailblazers and Envoys. (MORE)

You have dodge neon 1998 4 doors with 151 k on it you were returning from the work when problems started odometer stopped working fuel gauge was going up and down service engine soon and battery light?
Answer . Sounds like it could be a bad instrument cluster. I've had the fuel gauge bounce up and down and the speedo stop working. Might cause the other lights to come on too.

Remote car starter stopped working after a new battery was installed How do you get it to work again?
If the remote car starter stopped working after a new battery wasinstalled in the remote, the remote needs to be reprogrammed. Ifthe remote starter stopped working after a new battery wasinstalled in the vehicle, the computer might need to be reset bydisconnecting the battery for a few minutes.
The fuse for the cluster may have popped.. Please realize that the 1999 Blazer is a totally different Platform from the 2002 + TrailBlazer/Envoy/Bravada/Rendezvous/Saab97X GMT360 pl;atform trucks.
I,ve had the same trouble. take off the negative cable, once the battery is charged enough, and then re-connect. This should correct the trouble. .

The speedometer stopped working on your 1992 dodge 150 you couldn't find a cable for the gauge just wires is it electric how do you get it working again?
there is a speed sensor on the side of the trans, where the cable used to be. unplug the wires and replace the speed sensor. pretty simple to do.
\nI saw on another blog that each speaker has their own amp, so each speaker works independently from each other.

I have not taken the time to take mine apa…rt to validate, just thought I would pass along what I had read from someone else. (MORE)
It may be the fuel sensor going bad. I had an '05 with only 40k miles, and the fuel gauge wouldn't come off of E. They had to replace the fuel sensor and it went back to working normally. Not a particularly cheap repair since the gas tank must be removed to get to the sensor.

Why is my 92 Mercury Villager just stop running occasionally this can be at any speed I just shift to neutral and start it again and works like a dream but eventually it happens again any ideas?
It could be dirt in the carborator or the timing chain is starting to go, but that usually just dies and the car will not start again. It also could be a problem within the exhaust system. I have had the alternator changered with no results.

Your battery was dead so you jumped the battery off and when you started it now your gauges dont work only the digital part whats wrong?
have you checked the battery output? it should show right at 13.4 volts, if not, check your alternator output.
I'm not sure either. I have the same problem. I'm sending mine to a gauge repair shop in MN.
F100 runs but when shut off it will not start again. Alternator light works when I try to start again. If I jump battery truck will run fine until I turn it off and try to start again.?
Try having the alternator checked at a local parts house, off the truck and on. If it tests good on a bench tester, then bad on truck, then you might have a bad voltage regulator or wiring problem. If it's an older ford, (should be if it's a 100), then the regulator should be separate from the alter…nator. (MORE)
Jumped started my 04 pt cruiser and accidentally crossed the cables on battery for 1 sec and now i have no radio and auto door locks dont work and odometer is flashing no fuse 'but checked all fuses?
I recently had the original battery on my 2003 PT Cruiser GT finally go bad and I replaced it. In the process of it dying (and me having to jump it a couple times before I could get to the store to buy a new one), I lost my interior lights, the memory on the trip odometer, my power locks, my remote …key fob capability, my radio/CD player, and the odometer display showed a "NO FUSE" message alternating with the overall mileage reading. The car still ran fine, but it was obvious I had blown a fuse or fuses. I did some checking online to see if anyone had experienced this set of outages before (and the "NO FUSE" message) and there were several references to the IOD fuse, but no clear definitive answer on a) what it truly affected and b) how to replace it (since it's in a protective clip you pull up). Since I just did that and everything is restored, thought I'd share the info for those who might lose power to the above items and keep them from wasting a lot of money at the dealer for a simple repair. Here's the scoop: 1) I bought a fuse tester/puller at a local auto parts store, which enabled me to individually pull all the fuses that were labled as having anything to do with the interior lights, radio, or locks. This included those in the fuse box by the driver's left knee inside the car and a 40 amp fuse up in the power distribution box under the hood. All checked out good, so I strongly suspected the IOD was the culprit. 2) I never did find anything in the manual or online that said exactly what that fuse affects, other than it is used during initial transport from the factory to dealers to minimize the drain on the battery by pulling it up. To reiterate what I mentioned at the beginning of this book, I know it affects at least the following systems: - Interior dome/reading lights (the dash lights, head- and tail-lights still work) - Power locks (both the door switches and the remote fob capability) - Radio/CD/Cassette player (though the unit will still show trim lighting) - The trip odometer memory (which would reset each time the car was shut down) 3) I crossed my fingers that the IOD fuse was the cause, as I really didn't want to take it to the shop and pay big bucks. The yellow 20-amp IOD fuse is in the fuse box (power distribution center) under the hood and just behind the air filter housing. It stands out because it is encased in a protective clip that allows you to pull it up to break the circuit, but leave it in place for transport and not get lost. The challenge is getting it out of that clip. To make it a bit easier to access, I removed the housing top to the air filter, which is simple (disengage the clips on the left side and the right front side, and then the screw holding the retaining ring on the rubber hose on the back left side). 4) I found that taking a very small, thin screwdriver that I use for glasses screws worked well. You'll see a small rectangle opening in the top (where you'll be able to read the "20" on the fuse). I think a small curved tip screwdriver would work, too. Take the tip of your screwdriver and insert it in the opening, with the pressure up under the left side of the opening (the top is actually hinged, with the left side being where it clips down in place and the plastic hinges on the right). It takes a little effort, and I used my left hand to try and help unclip the left side of the clip while I applied the out/lifting pressure with the screwdriver. After a while I got it, and the top opened up to allow access to the fuse. 5) Took out the fuse, tested it--sure enough, it was bad. Popped in a new yellow 20 amp mini fuse, closed the top of the clip, reinserted the fuse into the fuse box by gently pushing down, and then checked things in the car. Voila! I had everything restored. Yeah, baby! That was probably $100+ saved and it only cost me some time and one little fuse. I know this was long, but hopefully it will help someone who is trying to figure out what the heck is going on with their electrical stuff. I suspect this probably happens fairly often to folks and they just end up bringing the car in, especially when they've check all the other fuses properly labled for those accessories. Thanks much, and now it's time to get back to cruisin' in my PT GT! (MORE)
Your car suddenly stopped while you were at a stop At first attempt you could not start is again you retry again and it started you kept your car overnight without driving it and now It works What mig?
You probably have a 2000 Grand Am. My daughter had the same problem. She had the fuel system checked, and the diagnostic did not reveal a problem. Whatt she does is turn on the ignition and then off, three times before trying to start it. The car starts up every time. I believe the electronic fuel… pump is probably bad even though it doesn't show up after a diagnostic. (MORE)

What is the problem when all a car's instruments - speedometer odometer etc stop working all at the same time occasionally and then start working again later on while driving down the road?
If all the instruments behave erratically like that it could be caused either by the main plug onto the circuit board just being loose - it needs pushing back on tight - or maybe it has a worn-out connector pin? Or it could be just one loose wire such as a chassis bonding wire. (Also called a ground…ing wire.) If you don't know where to look yourself it would be best to get an electrician to check your dashboard display wiring for an intermittent circuit fault.. Note: it is unlikely to be caused by a "short" in your electrical system because a chafed hot wire shorting to the chassis frame of the vehicle somewhere - from excessive vibration or whatever - or two wires touching which shouldn't be touching (because of their insulation has gotten chafed) - would usually cause a fuse to keep blowing...

Why would my1999 Town and Country gauges stop working but it you hit the dash they start working again?
I had the same problem...it was the "computer". I had to hit the dash for about a year, then it just stopped working. It was around 800.00 to fix. You need to do at a Chrysler dealer as they have to input the codes that your local mechanic will not have.
if no gauges at all work, i would say that u need new instrument cluster in dash . before doing this however i would check the fuses . a bad alternator will also do this if engine is running and battery is low,as there is not enuff power to run everything,this tho is generally only at night when …lights,etc are on (MORE)
Why won't my 2003 Chevy trailblazer crank The battery is not dead We had jumped it off a few times before but that won't even work now?
First thing is, is the car cranking but not starting? IE engine turns but no start?

1995 corolla suddenly went dead won't start no instrument lights jumping didn't work Is it just a dead battery or something worse?
That's what I would check first. If the battery checks good, make sure battery cables are tight. Also check the fuse.
the lights are out on my dash, climate control and radiobuttons, but are ok (but very dim) on the odometer and radioclock/display. it's like someone turned the dimmer all the waydown. could the dimmer be bad? all my interior lights and automaticheadlights work.
well maybe the batteries dead (even thought that wouldn't happen) or the things totally buggerd
this recently happened to my 2005 Monte Carol. The MECHANIC had to readjust BEHIND the dashboard. It seems all 3 gauges are connected.
The "bus" is the communication system that the computers use. "no bus" means that the system is not working and no communication is happening. A scan tool and a wiring diagram are required to diagnose.
If the instrument panel is not working than its most likely to be a loose connection. This was the case with my corsa. also poor running due to the sensors which i had to change and air flow meter was faulty.
I would check the Body Control Module (BCM) this fixed my problem on an old Caravan I had
It is possible, especially if the battery is old. It is more likely however to blow something else electrical in your car. Before jump starting read the manufacturers recommendations on how to do it for your particular vehicle.
The stepper motors behind the gauges. Cheaper to get the motors on Ebay than a whole new cluster

The fuel gauge and the fuel pump are in the tank. This suggests that the fuse for this line may be blown. If not the wire may have been severed. The worst possibility is the pump/gauge must be replaced which requires the tank to be lowered.
The year, make and model would help but with some vehicles all the dash cluster gauges are protected with one fuse.
A battery jump starter works by taking the charge from another battery, such as in another car, and passing it to the dead battery. When the charge is sufficient in starting the dead battery, it should then start charging itself as the engine runs.
