      Don't mean to Necro, but this was a Godsend! I bought my 2004 LS Hatchback brand new in August of '04. Its been my daily ever since. I love this little crapbox to the moon and back, as we have both driven to hell and back! I just started having this problem in June/July of this year. Guess I got lucky. I was damn close to getting rid of it, even though I didn't want to. I'm a car guy, but my Achilles Heel is random electrical crap. I stumbled across this today. Low and behold, this is it! Now I can fix this and park my GTO and Camaro again and bring this little red beast back to life. You guys are great!

      Another possible fix

      I've had this problem with my 09 Aveo for at least 2 years. I've just been getting by with a battery powered LED light strip + a speedometer app on my phone. This week I decided to take it to an electrical specialist. I also took a printout of the walkthrough from this thread. The shop had it diagnosed and fixed in under an hour. Cost me $104. They took a different approach, not sure if my splicer box was burnt or not. I have attached an image of the notes they gave me.

      Here is what they wrote on the invoice...

      "Found no power on instrument illumination wire; checked fuse, OK. Found power out of under hood fuse box into under dash fuse box, but no power out of under dash box. Has open in shunt in under dash box. Spliced two wires at under dash box to bypass shunt - lights now working."

      Thank you so much! Those instructions to replace the 101 splice pack with homemade splices worked perfectly on my 06 aveo. The only difference was fewer wires on one side.
