Default where do I begin??

Have an ssei 2003 with only 9,900 miles. The compass is saying recalibrate, speedometer, tach, odometer, rear view mirror and turn signals not working so far and the DIC buttons dont respond. There is Power to Onstar , fuel, lights, oil, windows, etc. Any ideas? This is a dangerous situation and the dealer wont see me until monday (under warranty still)

Even if the dealer won't see it until monday, I would demand a loaner car. You didn't buy a $36k car to be left out in the cold without transportation. You just have to convey the seriousness of the problem. If you have any problems, contact willwren for the number for Pontiac Customer Service and complain about the dealership.
