Gas gauge, wipers, temperuture gauge, none of the work. I have checked ALL fuses. I can't afford to take it to a repair shop. I need to go to a junk yard.
What do I need to fix the problem? I already donated $25.00.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Hi ignats12. Welcome back to the forum. With so many things affected, suspect a problem with the Body Computer. It lives to the right of the glove box. One word of warning tough. You MUST find a used one from a car that does not have the factory anti-theft system if that is not on your car. If either the Body Computer or the Engine Computer are installed with that programming, it will teach it to the other one which will self-program itself for that system. That programming can not be undone. At that point BOTH computers will have to be replaced before the engine will start.

If your car does have the factory anti-theft system, any Body Computer from a similar car can be used because it will learn the system from the Engine Computer as soon as the ignition switch is turned on. From that point on though, it can only be used on another car with the anti-theft system.

Can you tell me where to find the "Body Computer" I could not find anything "to the right of the glove box" that you indicated in your e-mail.

You have to pull the glove box insert out, as I recall. It is held in by one nut or screw against the "A" pillar. Seems to me it is black and has a tab or finger on it for the mounting screw. This is from a foggy memory. It's not real easy to find or to get out.
