You may need to have the "Body Control Module" replaced on your car. We have a 2002 Saturn L200 and the same symptoms occured. Dash lights were flashing, dome light flashing, couldn't shift out of park, etc. Dealer replaced the part under warranty (at the time) and we haven't had the problem since.
Saturns do not use a speedometer cable to control the gauges on the cluster. It uses the magnetic pickup located in the vehicle speed sensor, mounted in the back side of the transmission. The computer then sends signals to the dashboard to operate the gauges electronically
There is no speedometer cable. The gauges are electric driven based of a signal from the PCM. the PCM gets speed information from the Vehicle Speed Sensor located on the top of the differential
It means one of the gauges is out of normal range. Check the gauges while it is running and you will probably find the vehicle is not charging, overheating or has low oil pressure.
Gauges, seat belt, mirrors,
The check gauges light comes on when one of the gauges is out of normal range. The vehicle is either overheating, not charging or low on oil pressure.
Speedometer, Fuel Gauge, and Tachometer.
Lose of power or ground since all the gauges quit working.
This could mean any number of things depending on what sort of vehicle you are in.
It depends on what's wrong with them. Please tell us more about the problem you're experiencing.
vehicle speed sensor may be your problem
What is the vehicle? late 90's dodge? 97 Dakota, Check fuses
A bezel is the decorative/functional piece that surrounds and holds the instruments and gauges in a vehicle.
cause when you shut off the van the power to the gauges is cut off completely, so the gauges will stay wherever they were at until the next time you start the vehicle.

Check your owners manual. It tells you what each of your fuses goes to depending on the vehicle.
derived from the motor vehicle instrument sector, which produced speedometers, tachometers, odometers, fuel level gauges, water temperature gauges, ammeters, oil pressure gauges,
If all of the gauges stopped working there is probably a blown fuse in the right side of the console in the car or out under the hood in that fuse box. If all of the fuses are good then there is likely a bad gauge cluster or a wiring problem.
You should always check your gauges, seat belt, and mirrors after you start your car.
something to do with diagnostic codes. you need to have the codes read. I'm having battery problems with my Saturn and it seems to happen then.
Certain Ions have an orange wire in the trunk that can rest on the floor by the battery. There is a connector that corrodes due to moisture in the trunk, causing gauges to become inop Check that connector for corrosion
The instrument cluster can cause that problem. It shorts out the communication system between the computers.
When there are beeping noises and the check gauges light on a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo it means there is a problem. The vehicle will need to be stopped and all of the fluids need to be checked immediately.
I am not quite sure what you mean by gauges, but most likely you will need a gm dealer to down load the correct program into your vehicle. Tell me more, i am a gm tech so i can try to help
The gauges have to be accessed. The dash nowdays is very fragile and a static electric spark can ruin a bunch of things. I suggest taking it to a garge.
