g6 dash problems


Asked by Jul 29, 2015 at 08:08 PM about the 2006 Pontiac G6 GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i am having a hard time figuring out the problem of my 2006 pontiac g6. my dash lights wont work (cluster,radio) they dont turn on what so ever. the needles are just stuck on 0 on everything. the radio doesnt turn on or nothing. i have checked all the fuses all the fuses seem to be good but still no lights in my dash.
At night the clusters needle barely light up so there is power to the cluster just dont know what can be causing it for it to not work properly.
could this be a problem related to my BCM? if so what would be the best way of fixing this thank you

Sounds like a bad ground at the instrument cluster. That'll cause dimly lit bulbs and gauges to stay or go to 0. HTH. -Jim

It's not easy. You'll have to remove the lower dash panels and make sure there's no screed missing or metal brackets not securely fastened to the metal "bulkhead" behind the dash. If this car has an aftermarket stereo, I'd look there first. A wiring diagram will be most helpful for locating the ground connections. See if your local repair facility will pull one up for you from alldata or visit your local GM Dealer's Service Department. Either place will probably run you off copies for free. Even a repair manual can be helpful here as most have wiring diagrams in the back of the book. HTH. -Jim

That was make sure no screws are missing. Sorry, my computer can't spell. -Jim
