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.
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
gas gauge and other instrument gauges not working. They bounce all over the place
Speedometer shows 100 mph while going 20 and low speeds when on hiway, etc.
(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 and tachometer gauges work erratically and vehicle runs rough when gauges do not work correctly
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.
Has a tendency to wig out and all gauges flip from high too low all the LED flash on and off you don't know how much gas how fast your going it does it all the time for a long time until the car warms up when its cold and sometimes while you're driving down the highway it just wigs out and then comes back on. Worried one of these times it will quit completely
