The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.Google+

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.

faulty cluster , replace cluster
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.

speedo works erratic at times when cold
(2000, Cheverolet Suburban, 1500, Ltd.) Panel lights flickered, all gauges were rapidly fluctuating, then they all stopped, then came back on, then stopped, etc. for just a few miles (to get home). Once home, Suburban wouldn't even start until the panel was disconnected. Once the panel was disconnected, everything else worked fine again. Still searching for a helpful and affordable solution that offers more than a "hope" and does not require returning to the local dealership that has ripped us off and actually *caused damage* to our vehicles before.
