Not sure about the turn signal, or temp gauge, but your heater fan control problem is most likely a burned out resistor control, which I had to replace on my grand am, the part is $20 the time was an hour, most likey this is the problem, it seems like a typical problem on gm cars.

where is the headlight switch on a 1984 monte carlo? I know how to cut the lights off and on but I don't know how to cut off the brights.

I have an 86 and you should be able to turn off the brights by pulling the turn signal lever towards you.

I had similar issues with my 2000 SS. I dont recall the specifics on it, but the turn signal had something to do with the hazardous flasher switch on the dash. Something about a fuse in there or something. Its actually a common problem I found out so if you contact your dealer, they should have info on it. I learned this from my brother who works at a Pontiac dealership.
#11 of 78 96 Monte Carlo- electrical?
Apr 07, 2008 (2:11 pm)
i have a 96 monte carlo , Ive had it nearly 2 years and love it , but within the past 6 months ive been having problems with it acting funny. At first it acted as though the alternator was going out, then the battery died, now im finding that the battery connections keep comming loose. has anyone else heard or noticed this problem? we also began to wonder if the ignition switch was going bad , because i would go to turn it over and it would hesitate for a few seconds and then try to turn over.

I just lost my tail lights, side marker lights and dash lights-brake lights, turn signals and headlights all work fine-any idea what could be causing this? All fuses inside are good and the car just passed inspection in January-Would appreciate any ideas!! Thanks!

Hello Monte Carlo owners. I'd like to share with you some problems I have had with my Monte. My AC and Cooling fans stopped working on a long trip to Florida. After $80 at the dealer they told me it was the PCM and it would have to be replaced and reprogrammed. I checked all the wires and have installed toggle switches that bypass the PCM and I can manually control the fans and AC. I asked a master mechanic online and he said if I could live with the switches that was the cheapest way to get around the problem. I get a trouble code for the cooling fans but I still got it inspected anyway (check engine light was on).
My car shifts hard when the fluid is warm and I notice bubbles in the fluid. Checked it because I thought it was low. The bubbles make it read high.
Also lost use of my heated seats and rear defroster. Working on those problems next. Probably have more toggle switches to install. Let me know if you have any insight on my problems and I'll do the same for yours. rvac99cox.net
#14 of 78 dead battery issues
Nov 22, 2008 (11:03 am)
I have a 2002 SS with 69K miles that I bought with 50K earlier this year. I recently started to have issues where the battery will go dead for no apparent reason (no interior lights on, etc.) I had the electrical system tested and the dealer found no parasitic drains. I've narrowed it down to when I drive it one day, the next day it will be dead (or the battery will be depleted enough that it won't be able to start). However if I put a battery charger on it and let it sit with a full charge, it can go up to a week and a half sitting without a problem, then will start right up. I've replaced the battery three times with different brands to no avail. Any thoughts?
