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.

The whole instrument panel would go out and when it came back on the gauges would be moving back and forth. I took it to dealership they said they reset the panel. It worked for a few days then went out and has not came back on. I have not clue how fast I'm going or how much gas is in the tank.

Dashborad instrument oanel is erractic. Goes out completely then comes back on.
I had this problem and GM refused to fix because I had over 50K miles. I had to pay out of my packet to have this problem repaired. I am not upset because some defective parts were installed but they refused to have it fixed. Never will buy GM. They must understand its their problem passed on to a customer

I have the same issue. In fact, the dash was dead when I bought it. The dealer promised to fix it, but after I took possession of the vehicle, they put the burden of getting a rental and paying out of pocket for reimbursement on me. End result...I have not had it fixed. My truck is now well over 225,000 miles, but according to Carfax the problem of not being able to read the odometer occurred prior to 100,000 miles. GM should have recalled this dashboard years ago for defective parts.
