Instrument panel light went out first, then the gauges started to not function properly. Speedometer is the only gauge working properly, Temp gauge would go off the chart when in fact it was running at normal temp. Had a mechanic check out the wiring cluster and he found there was a short, he moved one of the lines next to the air handler and the gauges worked normally for a short time. Very frustrating, as many of the complaints that I have seen on this condition that Chevy wouldn't do a recall on them..

I have a 2004 Monte Carlo SS. Around 80,000 all my gauges started to act erratically. Also my seat belt and airbag light would come on. In the message center the battery icon light would come on. All this would happen at different speeds while driving. I do not know what the problem is. I would appreciate any good leads on how to fix this problem.

Started with oil pressure gauge pinning, then voltmeter, then gas gauge. Speedometer only quit once, works accurately now. Half the time the smaller gauges work fine, but I use info center to monitor gas amount!

speedometer works erratically, usually slower than actual speed but faster. volt gauge not working at all.

speedometer,tack, and oil pressure gauge are registering erratically.
The car was used and already had a broken gas gauge. When first starting the car, the gauge will read correctly, but during driving or starting again shortly after driving, it's at random points.
