Why would the service light fuel gauge and temp gauge of a 2001 L-series Saturn go on and off while driving?

I have experienced this problem before. There is a good chance there is a Body or powertrain code stored in the computer to indicate a problem in the cluster, body control module, wiring, or combination of those. The only way to know is to get that code read.

after experiencing the same problem with the fuel gage, temp gage and service light, we kept using the Saturn only to have the car not go out of park, and the door lock malfunction.Took it to Saturn dealer and diagnosed it as having the body control module replaced. to the tune of over $ cannot do this yourself as the module needs to be programed after installation with a special machine.

Your fuel sensor inside the tank is shot. Change it.

My memory says correct gauge for 100 amp service is 1 0 (that is, one ought) I could be wrong, check with your power company or building inspector.

It COULD be the fuel filter or the fuel pump. If you haven't replaced the fuel filter, try that. A fuel pressure gauge will tell you if you are losing fuel pressure.

The gas gauge sensor is most likely stuck. It is inside of the tank and over time it will get corroded.

The stock oil pressure sensor on a 97 Saturn can be replaced with an oil pressure gauge for poundage info by first unscrewing the existing sensor. The new sensor can then be screwed into place and wiring ran to a suitable pressure gauge.
