For example, an instrument cluster with 6 analog gauges will have 6 stepper motors. The first common cause is a faulty oil pressure sensor which is mounted on the engine. It should be visible from the lower corner of the windshield. Don't worry, you won't break the needle if you keep your fingers near the base of the needle and away from the tip while you do this step. Prices vary depending on exactly what services are performed light replacement, display repair, power failure repair,etc and whether shipping is involved. First you can install an instrument cluster out of a truck that has the trans temp gauge and it will be fully functional in your vehicle because all Silverados as well as Suburbans, Sierras, Tahoes, Avalanches came pre-wired and have a temp sensor already installed in the transmission right from the factory. I bought the vehicle used from a chevy dealer and was told it had warranty remaining.
I lacked the money for the replacement and have been driving it broken. The thing is you need the gauges so what do you do. The contact attempted to receive assistance from Chevrolet, but was unsuccessful. You'll need to use a small tool to pry out on the tabs while pulling up on the lens assembly to remove it. The use can reset to English but the cluster will change the language randomly or simply scroll through the options endlessly. However, if you have a bad oil pressure gauge and also other instrument cluster problems you may prefer to have the instrument cluster fully rebuilt first and go from there. The settlement allows the owner or lessee to get their instrument cluster replaced under the terms of a special coverage adjustment to their factory standard warranty.
I just bought the truck and it was over the mileage when I purchased the vehicle. Most instances can be repaired and this is included as part of the regular rebuild service. It has gone past 120 mph. Light duty trucks can be upgraded with a transmission temperature gauge if you want to monitor your transmission temps during towing or hauling. So any instrument cluster being sold now is a used unit or a rebuilt used unit.
Today, I drove to work and didn't see a problem outside of a jittery needle. I first noticed it on a small trip where I was traveling about an hour or so, then all of a sudden, the speedometer dropped to zero. This is yet another common issue with 03-06 Silverados. Once I had stopped and noticed the gage was stuck at 60mph I showed it to the officer and he let me go. Gm really needs to look at this problem and fix it. I am military, and I cannot afford any type of motor vehicle violation on my military record, nor can I afford a speeding ticket. Nationwide shipping allows for quick turn around limiting vehicle down time.
There will be one electrical plug in the back. I have the same problem that all the gauges are out. . Recently within the last 6 months my speedometer had been twitching and sticking on a certain number. Then, the vehicle's speedometer stopped on 60 mph permanently.
Odometer Display On While Vehicle Off — Causing Battery Drain This problem is typically but not always seen in conjunction with an instrument cluster that will not power on or has been displaying intermittent power failure. I feel this should be repaired at no expense to me. Place the circuit board back into the white center housing and snap on the black back housing. Then one told me that there was a recall on this. This is the perfect time to replace them, you can get the correct bulbs along with the stepper motors here: they simply solder onto the board.
This section will outline all the most common problems that have been identified. While driving 45 mph, the speed control stopped working. If you found my instructable helpful please share it online with anyone you know who may need this kind of repair by pasting the link into blog posts, forum posts or right on your website! This will be important when you put it back together to maintain calibration so don't skip this step. Again that's something a shop would need to look into, see my links above. This sending unit is part of the larger fuel pump assembly.
I hope to hear back from you. When the problem began last year I was told it was not warranted. Contact the to schedule an appointment. This can be done during other repair work to the cluster or as a stand alone upgrade. I'm not sure what the dealer will say but I'm not very optimistic about it right now. The first time I noticed it was on a rainy day when the speedometer indicated 65mph, but afer later comparing the tach to the speedometer, I estimate I was actually going about 80mph. What can I do to get this fixed, with out breaking my bank.
