Not too unusual. Just a pain. Replace it. John In Montana
Yes, this has happened on my car 2 times now. The cluster (all of the guages in the dash) has to be replaced. This is a factory product problem. But it is not dangerous, so they have not recalled the car for it. The cost is roughly $300 plus the dealer install time...about 3 hours.
It is normal on a Sunfire. I've had two different Sunfire's and I've had to put new clusters in both of them. The first one at 38K and the second one at 42K. This is where that extended warranty comes in handy...
Just bought a 99 Sunfire Gt. It had the odometer light out.
I pulled out the gauge cluster and on the back is a steel cover.
Remove the cover. Then where the odometer is you will see a red clip, turn to the left and remove it. It as you will see is a bulb. You can rip on off another one at the wreckers or. You will need to go to Parts Source and get the smallest(closest match in size) 12volt bulb $2.00 and then go to an electronic repair shop and have them solder in the new bulb $4.00. (you can have them solder it direct to electronic board, that's what I did).
By the way DO NOT USE AN LED OR A SUPER BRIGHT
Just tooling around on my sunfire and figuring things is what I do best.
A new gauge cluster is what everyone told me...bull I have done this repair and it works like new, beeen working great for the last 6 months.
I have an 01 Pontiac sunfire and I have noticed that the check gages light comes on when the gas is low. I have never seen any other indicator come on for low fuel.

Wheel speed sensor. have the ABS scaned

Check the main fusebox under the hood.
You have a bad alternator.
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
You must first remove the trunk door facia. (This is the part with the "Pontiac" lights in it.) Then you can get to the bulb to replace it.
I have a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire . The "check gages " light comes on when my gas tank is on empty. I dont know if this is a right answer but this is how I know I need to fill up at the gasbar .
TAKE THE PASSENGER SIDE HEAD LIGHT OUT. YOU WILL SEE IT IN THE FENDER.

To change the license plate light on a Pontiac Sunfire, first remove the cover over the bulb with a small screwdriver. Gently push on the bulb and turn 1/4 turn to remove the old bulb. Insert the new bulb and snap in the cover.
This may, or may not help, as my Sunfire is a few years older than yours. My dashboard light dimmer switch has a built in dome light switch. When turned past maximum bright, it turns the dome light on. FriPilot
disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 mins this will reset computer it will do it for sure
it probably needs an O2 sensor they range from about 40-90 dollars
It means your engine needs attention.
If there is just one light out, the bulb probably burnt out and needs to be replaced. A single bulb will not have a fuse.
Fill your coolant reservoir and the light should turn off. Do it soon or your engine may over heat.
There are several reasons why the ABS light could be staying on in your 1995 Pontiac Sunfire. One reason is that the cable could have come loose. Another is that the fuse could be bad. To be on the safe side, you should have the car checked by your mechanic to see if there are any serious problems with the brakes themselves.
IT probably means that ur day time running lights and head light system is bad somewhere...
