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 OIL PRESSURE GAGE AND BATTERY VOLTAGE GAGE CLUSTERS HAVE QUIT WORKING ALL TOGETHER!

    i had the same problem and found a guy that for about a 150.00 he pulled the dash and replaced all the gauge units - seems the original gauges fuel and speed etc have a small motor unit that drys out n cracks so it doesnt work first sometimes then more n more - after 2 failed speed n oil i looked into it and now it works great again - was a real easy fix if you know how to remove the solder right n solder em back on also finding teh little motor part would be a hasle - or you can have teh dealer just replace the whole unit instead for 400-600 , but pay a guy to do it lots less stress n time ( took him about 30 min to replace all 6 )

  • My speedometer and other panel gauges work sometimes and sometimes they don't. Never can tell when this will happen. I can turn the ignition off and turn on again and sometime they will work or if I'm ridding along I will hear a clunk and they will just start working.

    My panel cluster gauge needle function is shot to hell. Nothing works. Took it to the dealer and will have to keep my car for 2 days, will replace the panle but I have to pay 300.00 for labor. I called GM and found out absolutely nothing. Guess I will have to pay.

    I was notified of this issue when I took my vehicle to the dealership they refused to fix it. I have taken my tahoe to no less that 4 separate dealerships, and yet to have the issue repaired. They refuse. I have contacted gm about this as well. If you have a tech bulletin and or recall on the issue why do they refuse to repair it. Speedometer is inoperable. Oil pressure inoperable. Check engine light stays on when no codes are present.

    I was driving home from a trip and about 1 hour into the drive, the speedometer just starting reading the wrong speed. I was on the highway at 65 mph and the next time I looked down...without slowing down...it read 20mph. It stayed that way...until I stopped for gas. After I stopped the car and turned it off to pump gas, it started working again when I got back on the road. It has only happened this once so I haven't looked into fixing it yet.

    Dash simply goes blank for a second or so.

    All Dash gauges reading "0". Getting tired of the jokes about all the problems I've had with my Chevys over the years from co-workers with Toyotas
