Cluster gauges not working, remove fuse and they work ?

10

Asked by Jan 19, 2015 at 05:52 PM about the 2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I installed an after market radio and a
few weeks after my dash lights all
went out. I found out and replaced the
fuse and everything was OK. A few
days later my cluster gauges stopped
working and I checked my fuses and I
removed one and suddenly the
gauges began to work but it would not
allow me to start the car. I put the
fuse back in and the gauges went
back to not working. Can someone
please help me ?

Double check which fuse you removed. Typically, these two systems are not connected.

i would use the manual for your car if you have one. it will show where all of the fuses are in your car. you have 3 fuse boxes. one on the drivers side. one n the passenger side and one under the hood. go thru all of the fuses and look and see if they are burnt. of the ones you cant physically see to check get a volt meter and check to see if they have any voltage.

also these cars have fusible links and sometimes one shorts out . in that case you need a mechanic to look at it. i repair cars but thgt s- -- i wont mess with. i just cut the link and hook the wires together and put electrical tape on it. lol
