Customer Question
Instrument cluster - dashboard...

Instrument cluster - dashboard light don't come on when I turn on the headlights at night.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

The GM dealer say it is the instrument panel an no one can get parts to rebuild it anymore. I was wondering about a junk yard. It's a 2001 SC2 that just turned 100,000 miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '01 Saturn?

SC2 - there is no

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Junkyard?
