I have a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am GT, about 120,000 miles on it. A while ago, the speedometer started shaking while I was driving, and then just fell to zero. It would come back, then shake, and fall to zero again over and over for about a week or so. Then one day, I started the car, and every gauge went dead and all the lights on the sides lit up. I am now matching the speed of traffic as my speedometer always reads zero, and I am filling up every 260 miles since my odometer is the only thing left working (gas gauge of course also reads zero). I only know the basics with cars, so all I did was check the fuses, check to see if any wires I could see under the hood were broken or disconnected, and also got the computer read for error codes (it found none). The shops I bring it to tell me that they charge a base fee of 100 dollars just to try and find an electrical problem, even if they cant find it and cant solve it! Any ideas?
