None of my gauges on the dash work after I changed the battery?

Asked by Mar 07, 2017 at 07:41 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car died while my girlfriend was at work. when she went to leave it would
not start.  We had to use a jump pack to get it to start and we bought a new
battery.  Now none of the gauges work? Gas meter, speedometer, temp
gauge, nothing!! I checked the fuses and they seemed fine but still nothing?
The new battery works great everything works but the gauges.

Check the fuses again. Sometime a bad fuse can look good.

From what I know the BCM/CLU fuse is the one that should have fixed the problem. Is there another fuse I should look at closer?

I would check them all, even under hood and of course under dash.

is there a chance you mis matched the jumper cables ?

I checked all the fuses the only one that needed replaced was the cigarette lighter fuse. And no I didn't cross the jumper cables....... I've done that before on my old car and didn't work out

did the cig lighter work before ? those are hot all times , maybe that jump pack sent a surge and toasted your gauges , a wiring diagram would help if you're into that . Or take a close look up behind the gauges ,

what does the differing light min?
