Is it normal for the odometer light on your Pontiac Sunfire to go out at 53K miles?
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.
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.
Late model GM instrument clusters are not servicable. cluster replacement is the only option. Another option may be that the light bulb itself has burnt out. You know see this as the odometer is still working when you shine a light on it. The light bulb is dirt cheap but in order to get at it you have to take the entire dash apart just to get at it which will cost you a few…
What might be the cause for all the lights in the rear trunk lid of your 1995 Pontiac Sunfire to have gone out?
1997 Pontiac sunfire 4 door and both the abs light and your emergency brake light suddenly came on as you shifted into reverse along with the check engine light what does this mean and is it bad?
You have to remove the tail light lens cover from inside the trunk- there are about 6 nuts holding it on --the whole cover comes off and bingo there are your lites for the Pontiac emblem that lights up!! There are no lights persay just for the Licence plates on my 96 Sunfire and I assume the same on a 98
