2008 VUE 3.6L
Default no speedometer or tach plus many idiot lights

My instruments went wacky! First a low tire pressure light came on, then a car with a wrench in it, then the air bag light, and then I had no speedo or tach. Gas guage worked! After I got off the freeway, I shut the car off and turned it back on. No change. I let it sit for over a half hour, restarted it and all was fine. Dealer said, "It didn't throw any codes! Oh well, that happens sometimes." IDEAS?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Sounds like your Body Control Module is going bad. The first generation Vue would exhibit similar symptoms when the BCM has failed.

There is a bulletin addressing that issue. #PIT4697B.There are several grounds and connections to check for tightness and also updated software for the Instrument panel cluster.
