WHY DOES MY TOUCH SCREEN COMPUTER SCREEN GO BLANK AFTER A FEW MINUTES OF USE

1989 Buick Riviera • 180,000 miles

After the car is running the screen will go blank and also some of the digital read on the dash

If I knew why, I could fix them but the manufacturers won't release any service information on things like that. We can't even buy car radio service manuals anymore because they want to keep all that lucrative repair business for themselves.

If you do an internet search for GM digital dash repair, you'll see there's a lot of places that specialize in repairing them. It's a real common problem and is why I stick to normal gauges. I used Advanced Auto Electronics recently and had a very good experience with them.
