Speedometer or Other Instrument Panel Gauge May Work Erratically on Cadillac Escalade

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.

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

No panel lights at all.
Cluster goes out as well as headlights won't turn on. Then comes on in its own time
Speedo needle eratic and then stopped working altogether. Bought speedo servo kit and replaced all instrument cluster servos. Re-installed.
All gauges are not working correctly
Speedometer pegged, doesn't work at all! Needle as far as it can go !
instrumentation panel goes out, then comes back on - sometimes 6-10 times when driving. checked fuses, they were ok.
Australian zip codes only have 4 digits, so there is obviously a problem with your website. Speedo went berserk. Someone had tried to fix the cluster before and damaged the printed circuit wiring. Fixed the damage, and replaced all the servos while I was at it.
All my gages are messing up going beyond zero
