Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

Dash gauges and Information center work intermittantly - All fuses are in good

It started out as just a flicker of the gauges. Now, it is dead and only flickers on once every 80-100 miles for 5-30 sec, then its off for good. When the gauges are not working the information center does not work either. When it starts working the warning lights and chimes turn on like I just started the vehicle then go out like normal than a few seconds later the dash just stops working.

    No, nothing works when the gauges are dead. When gauges start working face lights will turn on if lights are on. But as soon as gauges stop working all the lights go out on the dash.

VTX1300 was dead. Got a jump, was idling fine so I start driving mile it lost power started popping so pulled over let it idle but all the gauges were flickering then it died and would not start again

the report suggest that you have a battery problem in that it has a dead cell and is not taking a charge or the charge circuit is not operational and the battery is being drained in running the electronics of the bike

Car shut off while driving and won't restart, gauges flicker

If it is a 2006 then you probably need a new battery, which is located under the hood of the car. If the gauges flicker, the battery is probably too dead to start the whole car, but it will still try to start it. Hoped it helped.

Gauges and radio flicker and truck wont start

Sounds like the battery is bad. Replace the battery with a new one then get the old one charged and tested if its good you may have a drain on the vehicle or the alternator may not be charging.

2003 Hyndai Elantra oil light has started flickering, Why?

If it flickers at idle, it "might" be engine wear, especially if you are approaching 200,000 miles. It might also be a faulty oil pressure gauge sending unit which is a little more likely.

2000 explorer is dying while I drive. It will start back up but with some difficulty. Could it be the fuel pump? The gauges do flicker a little but doesnt seem like the alternator. I drove 300 miles...

which gauge flickers. When last did u changed your fuel filter I usually changed it every 6 months and they are not very expensive. ONce your fuel filter is dirty eventually some debris will come out of the filter then it will go to your injectors and that is not good.

Flickering lights, gauges and radio

Sounds like a wiring issue, it's actually hard to diagnose without being there, with that many things happening all at once I'd guess a possible problem with the underhood relay/fuse box. On older vans they sometimes short out inside.To be sure you might want to go to your dealer, for about an hours labour they should be able to diagnose it properly. They will only go as far as you tell them to.
If I can be of any more help please ask..
Good Luck.

Dush board lights and gauges start flickering

indeed a fun one..i suspect a floating ground (poor ground) near instrument cluster causing the anomalies.....headlight circuit and signals are different so this makes sense .... if not fixed the instrument cluster will finally smoke and need replaced i think ...good luck
