I have a 1997 grand am se and most of the instrument guages don't work most of the time. Gas guage, temp guage, rpm guage. Speedometer does work.. I think it is the instrument panel. If it is can I replace it myself or how do I go about fixing the problem ?

I replaced the cheap plastic accelerator pedal, because it wore out. I must not have done that correctly, because immediately after installing the new pedal which required me to unhook a plug in wire, the gas guage stopped working. It now shows out of gas.

2000 Astro, I replaced fuel pump a month ago. Worked fine. Now gas guage is not working, just hangs down below E. Where is the dang fuse, so I can check it? I have the owner's manual, I don't see a listing for guage. I see pump relay.


It sounds like a problem with the fuel gauge sender unit which is usually combined with the fuel pump. Since you have just replaced the pump, check the wiring connections at the connecting plug. ... 2000 Chevrolet Astro

1995 suburban gas tank replacement instructions. What parts are inside the tank? Should they be replaced when changing the gas tank? Guages work fine - tank is leaking.


Fuel pump and sending unit are in there. Since they are working, I'd use them...Over $200. I would consider changing the "sock" filter on the pump while it's out, considering that if tank is rusted outside, likely it's rusted inside as well. ... 1995 Chevrolet Suburban

I need to replace my temperature control on Cirrus 2000. I lost the heat, it only blows cold air. How hard is it to change the control? It worked fine until we tried to reach for the cigarete lighter cable to see why the lighter is not working. One shop told me that I broke the lever behing the temparature controll, and that this is huge job to replace. They siad it may be up to $ 400.00 to fix it. The control it self cost only $ 7.00 --Help--

Our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited keeps stopping and the gas guage is the only guage that quits working. We had the crank case sensor replaced and that didn't work. Sometimes we have to wait 30-45 minutes and it will start up. Sometimes it starts after a few minutes. Our mechanic had it for two weeks and couldn't get it to do it and as soon as we got it back it has done it 4 times in a week. Any suggestions?


In defence of yoru mechanic most times they do not have time or the shop owners dont aloow them to drive the vech long enough to duplicate the prolbem, I have found just letting a vech sit and running in my bay does produce the same effect as driving ... Jeep Cherokee

I was just wanting to know what the ignition switch does and controls and how much it will cost to have it fixed? My girlfriends car needs a lot of work. The gas gauge doesn't work, the car dies in the middle of the road at times, sometimes the car has a problem starting, the tie rod is wore out, and needs a hub-assembly. Also, the motor mount needs to be replaced. I was wondering how much would all this cost and where would I get the parts and where would I need to go and have it all fixed.


These cars came with computer brains when they start going out all kinds of things start going wrong your best bet is to have it put on a diagnostic machine see where to go from there weigh the options might be cheaper to get another car ... Oldsmobile Intrigue

Gas guage not working on daughter's 1997 Buick Lesabre - just replaced the fuel pump-should we have done something while the tank was off for the gas guage?


If the sensor wasn't attached to the fuel pump you may have wanted to check that before you put it back up. If the Sensor was attached to the Fuel pump then your next check is the fuses followed by testing the gauge itself. ... 1997 Buick LeSabre

Hello everyone, was wondering if someone could describe possible reasons for the some of the issues we are having with our Malibu. a) We can no longer down shift to 2nd or 1st gear. When we go to 3rd gear and press the down shift button on the shifter, nothing happens. Dealer says it will cost $100 / hr for inspection to see what's going on. b) When we fill up our gas tank, the fuel guage still says empty. Then suddenly after a quarter tank, the fuel guage seems to work fine. Could this be a pro


1st Have someone look at the linkage under the hood while moving the shifter thru the position. The vehicle does NOT need to be running to do this. Probably better if not. 2nd Fuel gauge. Sounds like the sending unit is sticking. 3rd the clunking ... 2004 Chevrolet Malibu

1992 Mercury Grand Marquis FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT; The gas guage does not function. Where is this sensor located and how do I access it to replace it? I took this car for an inspection sticker, the guy said come back in 2 hours. When I drove away after inspection the gas gauge no longer worked. The guy said he has no idea why. But it was fine before he inspected it.


The sensor is located inside the gas tank, you can access the sender from the front of the tank, just make sure the tank is less than 1/2 full or gas will gush out when u remove the sender retainner ring on the tank to remove the sender, u will need ... 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis
