I have a 99 vt acclaim and was driving the other day and when I pulled up I noticed the temp gauge start to climb I quickly turned the ignition off and checked to see if the hose from radiator to motor had popped off there were no leaks etc so I jumped back on a started it back up then I noticed none of the dash gauges are working or the Odometer screen and the radiator fans aren't working either I've replaced fuses both in the car and under the bonnet with all new ones gone over wiring to see if any are exposed or not connected properly witch I can't find any faults ??? I don't know what's going on all dash lights inductors headlights still work on dash just not gauges or radiator fans?????

I had a similar issue a while back, check the thermostat mate and if no issues with it then may be a problem with the radiator

It's most likely that the onboard computers ecu has been tripped so it's likely better to have the car towed to a holden australia workshop or perhaps a reasonable auto electrician workshop may be able to help and the auto electrician is usually cheaper so it's more likely the better option.

I've bought a 2000 vt commodore and noticed there is no 60A abs fuse in it, does this mean my abs is not working?

1 answer

If there is no fuse, the ABS will not be functioning as the system has no power. Get a 60A fuse and put it in, the seller possibly took it out so no fault would show up concerning the ABS system. On the VT-VY commodores, there was an endemic issue with the ABS Module when you got to a certain age/ mileage. I know this, as relatives own a VY that had ABS problems. Good luck!

I would recommend getting rid of the old liquid then consulting your manual or perhaps you could call up holden and ask one of their employees for help

Some cars come with naturally occuring signal faults, however, I would recommend you take the car to a holden australia workshop or perhaps a reasonable auto electrician workshop may be able to help.
