Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

1 Answer

Fuel gage and speedometer don't work

I had checked the fuse for the gauges and it was good. But I haven't checked it again since the speedometer went completely out. If it were just the fuse wouldn't all the gauges not work though? Is Does this sound like a major problem? Do you think something has just became disconnected ?

Remove the dash clean the connectors and refit, sounds like its become un-seated on the connection, if you push on the dash and see if it comes to life again or parts come back then this is the fault, other fault can be the board on the back of the dash, damp etc can cause electrical problems, it may need drying, and you can re seal the board with nail varnish clear but you will need to re-solder all the connections back on first then use the varnish, the varnish should last years longer than the flaky stuff they use from new, just make sure its dry before plugging back in to the vehicle.

I had a similar problem with a 2001 Saturn. We checked every fuse and they were all fine. We finally did a 'reset' on the car's computer by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it a few minutes later. Everything was back to normal after that.

96 Mercury cougar gas gauge won't work

Cathy, 1996 Mercury cougar gas gauge not working. Simplest thing to check first is your fuel gage fuse, make sure all fuses are good. The ground wire could be corroded/damaged, sending unit in tank faulty, fuel level gauge in cluster faulty. All things can be tested by a good Tech.,diagnosed and estimate for repair.

None of the dash gages work no fuel, no rpm no speedometer

If you haven't done this already, check your fuse, for dash gauges. Go to the left side, inside your engine compartment to your control panel and check the fuses. Also check the fuses in your interior fuse panel, which is located at the left end of your dash board. Pull the handle with your fingers and check the fuses inside. I would think if all your gauges are out then it should be a fuse. I hope this will help you. Please vote. GOOD LUCK.

The gas gauge don't work

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, please do check the fuse. If the fuse is blown, the fuel gauge won't work. If that's the case, please replace it.
If the fuse if good then the problem will be on the fuel float itself. The fuel float is located above the fuel tank. You will need to pull down the fuel tank to gain access to the fuel float. Once replaced, the fuel gauge will work normally again.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
