Speedometer started to act erratically then failed completely. Searched the internet and discovered this was a common problem on certain GM vehicles. Removed instrument cluster (10 minute job) and took to a repair shop. They replaced all six stepper motors in the instrument cluster for $185.00 and I re-installed the instrument cluster (another 10 minute job). Instrument cluster has been functioning correctly since the repair. Vehicle now has 164,300 miles on it.

Replaced instrument cluster, $800
I have no oil,battery,temp,fuel or shifting light indicator. The logic bar is blue across. I have checked all fuse. After a certain amount of time the logic light will kick off and I still have no dash indicators. Any suggestions? It sounds like a relay kicking out or something. I can take the ipc/dic fuse out and put it back in and sometime it will work, but it kicks back out in a couple of hours.

Speedometer became erratic. Replaced all of the solenoids in the dash as they are all the same ones.

My tachometer and my oil gauge are not working properly at the same time. Then sometimes they work fine but my oil gauge will read in-correctly. They alternate from one to the other sparaticly. Do anyone know what causing this problem?

All electrical components (speedometer dashboard components, temp on rear view mirror, gear shift area) either don't work or sporadically work.

All gauges read erratically at different times. GM says they have to send in cluster to get fixed or just replace it at my cost. At part places you can also replace it. It's pretty pricey.
