If you disconnect the battery and your gauges don't come on does these simple procedures. Pull the fuse out that says instruments. Start the car then jam the fuse the fuse.in its spot and should be fixed. Stupid I know lol. I only figured this out becuase today I changed the fuel filter, spark plug wires, and ground cable on my girls 2002 Chevy cavalier. Just a heads up fellas.

I would have specified TRANSMISSION.
Beetle & tranny in the same sentence brings scary thoughts.

sorry bilzy, but all I caught was playing in an intersection sucking off........ then something about a tranny....... I don't really get the Beetle part so that's even weirder;brownbag; Sometimes my ADD and general lack of attention span are VERY entertaining to me.

Sorry to the OP for the:threadjacked:

It works the opposite of putting performance decals on a Ford- every one of those adds 5HP as you know- every bowtie on a vehicle reduces power and reliability by a measured amount. Just so you know.
