Speedometer or Other Instrument Panel Gauge May Work Erratically on Chevrolet Suburban 1500

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.

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 shows 100 mph while going 20 and low speeds when on hiway, etc.
gas gauge and other instrument gauges not working. They bounce all over the place
Gates has stop working. I can't see how fast I'm going or how much gas I have. The only thing it shows is the engine light
(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.
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.
speedometer and tachometer gauges work erratically and vehicle runs rough when gauges do not work correctly
faulty cluster , replace cluster
Had to have entire instrument cluster replaced and step motor
Replaced instrument cluster, $800
We have problem with the meter jump from 0 all the way to 180.
Instrument cluster went out, electronic display (dic) not working at all, speedometer, tach, oil pressure, etc. Not working.
It, stop working and then started back off and on, however I noticed that the cruise control would only work if the dashboard worked. So I replaced the the old cluster with one that had 135k on it so that one went out a few weeks later. I think it a sense to that has something to do with the cruise control. However I haven't had a chance to return the one I bought because I paid extra for a two year warranty.
Dash went out more gauges the message bord won't work nothing
All electrical gauges except tach pegged low and high
light which shows PRND321 stays out most of the time. rare occasions it lights up for a couple minutes. everything else works on dash.
Sometimes when I start the vehicle the panel does not light right away.
speedometer quit working. Then the heated seats. My ABS and 4 wheeldrive light are on and off. My airbag light turns on and off when I turn the steering wheel.
