Speedometer or Other Instrument Panel Gauge May Work Erratically on Chevrolet Avalanche 1500

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.

All of my Cluster gauges quit working. The mph, fuel, temp, battery etc. This seems to be a common problem for a Chevy Avalanche but I don't see any recall on it. Does anyone know if there is one?
First the oil pressure gauge stopped working. A few months later the fuel gauge stopped working. I need a solution other than the Chevrolet dealership.
The dash cluster no longer works normal. Sometimes it does and then it will not. Very aggravating and unsafe. Chevy needs to do a recall and repair these for us. It was already fixed once and does not work again. I do not know how fast I'm going, how much gas my truck has or if it is overheating.
SPEEDOMETER WON'T RETURN TO ZERO. THE INDICATOR NEEDLE JERKS AND SOMETIMES GETS STUCK.
Cluster Gage's fail on tach, speedometer, fuel, voltage, temp meters. Had it repaird at dealer twice. Went bad after each repair. Finally I fixed it myself by replacing the stepper motors inside the cluster. Bought on Amazon for $24.00 for six motors. It works perfect now
Not all the time, but when I would drive over an overpass, mahole, or pothole, all dash lights(symbols, i.e.ABS/Parking Brake,etc) would stay on for a few seconds, gauges go from max to min a few times, and clock will reset to 12:00. Mechanic changed the alternator, but when drove over bump, still had the problem.
May 2004 Chevy Avalanche speedometer start registering 70mph while in park. I would turn it off and back on to reset. Now it doesn't reset. I've heard that there was a recall on this item, but I've never received anything. I'm I stuck with the repair bill.
Entire intsrument cluster went dead started with some erratic behavior now completely dead
My gauges do not work at all except water temp...
Started with speedometer going erratic. Now doesn't work at all.
new cluster replaced,common problem
Oil pressuer went first, then tachometer , now speedometer Not fixed yet
Gas Gage does not work and shows over full when adding fuel
The instrument cluster just stopped working and when I would tap on it it would work for a while then stop again. Now, it is just not work at all. Only thing works on it is the check engine light and the turn signals.
I bought my avalanche and was cruising down the road in my new to me truck, I turned on the cruise control and then my instrument panel went on the fritz. It's still broke
speedometer started not working once in awhile now it hardly works.
Speed odometer all the way on 120 heating on left side don't work the right side do.oil pressure indicators work some time i just want to know what is wrong before it quit on me
Tachometer and amps meters don't work
Sometimes it works sometimes its 20 miles an hour off sometimes not at all
Tachometer and speedometer both jump erratically at the same time when driving. When stopped the speedometer shows 30 mph and will increase as the rpms go up. Changed out cluster panel with a used one. No help. Problem seems to be somewhere else. Any help would be appreciated.
