Hi Ed, These 03-06 Silverados are bad about this kind of problem, it's usually caused by failing stepper motors inside the instrument cluster. Each gauge has a motor that controls it's needle movement and when the motor goes out the gauge will either stick, jump around or die all together. Another common problem is when all the gauges just stop working all at once like yours (but the back lights inside the instrument cluster still work). This problem is also a issue inside the instrument cluster that requires it to be taken out, opened up and repaired.
