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.

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
INSTRUMENT PANEL IS DEAD AND DOES NOT ACTIVATE UNTIL DRIVING FROM 2 TO 10 MILES; THEN COMES ON; HAD TO CHANGE THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY; BUT AFTERWARDS; INSTRUMENT PANEL GAUGE STILL ERRATIC AT 197000 MILES
