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.Google+

SPEEDOMETER WON'T RETURN TO ZERO. THE INDICATOR NEEDLE JERKS AND SOMETIMES GETS STUCK.
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.

Speedometer started working erratically and now will not show correct speed; sometimes faster, sometimes slower than real speed. The dealer said Chevy had a replacement arrangement for trucks with less than 70k miles or 5 years old; that does me no good. I now use the speedometer on my Garmin GPS. Not optimal, but a lot less than the $700-800 the dealer wanted for a replacement instrument cluster.

whole instrument cluster went crazy, and needles would bounce around. removed the cluster and found a site online to send it into. Chevy should have recalled it, instead they called it a special bulletin. was lucky to only pay $100 with the place i sent it, but it shouldn't have happened.
