I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier with 70,000 miles. I bought it new and have maintained it very well. It began having intsterment gauge problems about 6 months ago. My spedomiter would read about 5-15 mph faster than I was actually going. On other days it would read 5-15 mph slower than I was actually going. (I know its a gauge problem because my car's governed at 106mph and even when my gauge is messed up the power still cuts out at exactly 106mph) The problem was on and off. Recently the problem has migrated to my engine overheat gauge and my fuel gauge. They both read wrong. To the point that when I turn my car off. My fuel gauge will be sitting on 1/2 tank. But when I turn it on it will read off the chart and actually hit my heat gauge. I consulted a local mechanic shop and there only fix would be to replace the whole cluster for around $500. Do I have any other options?
