2001 Saturn SL Q&A

2001 Saturn SL Question: Dashboard gauges out

All the gauges on the dash were going on and off and now are off. Some months ago the car was flooded with water, this may be a concern? -
Answer 1
If the car was flooded with water perhaps electrical connections are now corroding. I would take apart as many electrical connections as I could pull them apart and perhaps use electrical cleaner (available form Radio Shack in an aerosol spray) and before putting connectors back together I would get a tube of di-electric grease (Permatex make it available from any good automotive parts store). There is a fuse in the fuse box definitely a 10 AMP I think it is marked Body Comp that supplies power to the instruments ensure it is receiving power and is good. The electronics in this car do not like corrosion. -
