Report: Speedometer or Other Instrument Panel Gauge May Work Erratically
Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Problem
Average Mileage: 83,127 mi (13,800 mi - 178,000 mi)
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.

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.

Instrument cluster is a cluster; in fact the whole electrical system is a mess. Sometimes the instrument cluster works sometimes not. The only reliable instrument is my gas guage.
My AC will randomly switch to heat and blow hot air. Not "cool" in south Texas. I can turn the truck off and restart and that will correct that problem. Even if only temporarily.
The truck will sometimes think that the back gate is open when it is not. This causes the interior lights to STAY on. Also makes it hard to lock the doors because the alarm system thinks a door is open.
Speaking of alarm... it randomly goes off. This tends to tick the neighbors off... kind of embarassing at church too.
The cd player quit working... sort of. It's random too.
Dealership said that we needed to replace the "brain" in the truck. That is a $800 fix.
