Answers :

Check the fuses for the dash, but I'll bet it will need repaired. Usually on Cadillac the radio is in the trunk. The part in the dash is just the control to the radio and it is wired to the cluster. If you try to wire an aftermarket stereo to this plug that went to the radio controls, it shorts out and burns the cluster. Hopefully it blew the fuse before it burnt the cluster but usually not.

The dash digital oil pressure display stays at zero when the engine is running, all RPM's. Verified that engine oil pressure is about 45 to 50 lbs at idle and that the oil pressure sender on engine is working (replaced). Removed electrical plug from top of oil pressure sender and oil pressure display goes to 100%. All other dash digital displays, speed, engine temp, tach are working OK.

Electrical?? I have a problem with my dash board. Every time it rains, my whole dash quits working. I have regular tackometers except for my mileage and trip is digital. Here lately it may even do it when it hasn't rained. After awhile htay will all come back on and start working. My husband said it feels like the actual running of the van is different when the dash quits working like maybe a loss of power. Any idea of what it could be would be appreciated. Thank You, Stephanie
