Question about 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

The gauges on the dashboard stopped working but most of the indicator lights come on. I've cleaned the battery cables that go to the main relay center but still have the same issue. The windows do not work the stereo does not work. Then all of a sudden everything comes back on and the dash indicators go off. Where do I go now to figure this out.

If it is the display for the gears flashing, this indicates a fault with the gearbox system, this is more common on multitronic gearbox's

these displays ared l.c.d. displays and what happens is over time the vacuum pack on the crystal element ruptures and get air in the tube and that part of the display is ruined permanently.I'm not sure if your saying that there are pieces missing or if the whole display is blank. If there are peices missing the only way to fix it is to repkace the instrument cluster. If they are blank it is very likley it is either the backlighting bulb or the dimmer switch. If you take a blanket and cover your display and can see the display very dimmly try replacing your back lighting bulbs- hopefully it is just your backlighting because the clusters are about 1,000 dollars and have to be special ordered with your mileage engraved in the new unit.

Try unhooking the battery, turn key on, leave door open, then connect battery, start engine immediately. The battery saver module thinks it's saving your power!!

1995 Buick Le Saber Instrument panel stopped working, except The Speedo which is not electronic, but the oil gauge /Fuel center, Temp pegged right,Battery dead left Is there a main fuse? A relay?


This is perhaps the first time I came across this situation. There is definitely fuse for it and since we are completing the circuit with the key itself. Since car is starting that means ECM detects that ignition is on. I am sharing a link see if this helps http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-Dashboard-Lights-That-Won't-Light

2006 citroen relay indicators have stopped working and now getting "batt" flashing any ideas ?


The battery light flashing is an indication of an intermittent short. The intermittancy seems to be caused by a "hung" relay or a partially welded relay that is not releasing its contacts. Try going to the relay and fuse box under the hood and pulling one relay at a time to see if the observed action stops. If it does, replace the faulty relay. If not go to the fuse box under the dashboard and do the saqme thing!

Have your battery tested or first clean the terminals and cables. Check the ground cables, not just the one on the battery but frm engine to body etc etc.

Hi, a normal PATS response is slow blinking. Fast blinking indicates the transceiver is not reading the transponder. Can you tell me your model and year? I've had some success in bypassing PATS in the column, but it depends on the model and year.

1998 Ford Escort dashboard warning lights and gauges not working.


Sounds like possibly the ignition switch is going out. Try jiggling the key in the ignition in the on position and see if your lights come back on.

My dash board guages in my H2 don't come on


My solution to dashboard instrument panel gauges and lights not working was to disconnect negative cable to car battery, then reconnect. After doing so, everything worked.

And the solution to instrument panel coming on and off sporadically may also be a loose battery connection.

I would say try and REPLACE the turn signal fuse/relay. It should be a square, black fuse/relay on your fuse panel. They run about $10.00.
