Asked by Aug 17, 2013 at 09:40 AM about the 2001 Pontiac Sunfire SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have checked the fuse panel, none blown, I have checked the negative on the battery,
clean and tight, i have checked the negative on the alternator, clean and tight, i have
shaken every wire under the dash looking for a possible lose wire, none found. Any other
ideas on what it could be?

You are probably going to have to remove the dash assembly and trace out the affected circuit back to the power source and check the IC for any burned contacts.
