The speedodometer and the RPM guage stopped working at most of every time that the SERVICE TIRE MONITOR appeared on the message center.
Entire instrument panel with speedometer and all gages including the digital readout works erratically. It was recalled in 2007 & replaced now it is not working again! Quite a safety hazard when you don't know your speed you are traveling and all gages including rpm stop functioning. Why won't GM replace it again if there is a problem AGAIN?
We just started having a problem with our denali. All of a sudden our instrument panel went black and all our gauges stop working but when we hit a bump. It all came back on then after we shut the rig off the panel shut back down
The gas gauge broke as well as my oil pressure gauge (it is pinned at 80). six months later, my speedometer is now broken. No money to fix!
The speedometer works erratically at times. The repair shop told me that the instrument cluster needs to be replace. I have no warranty on the vehicle
4 of the gauges were sending false readings. I bought the motors on Ebay for 25.00 and with very little skills I replaced and works perfect again.
Speedometer and other gages began to work erractically
I had the yukon serviced costing me $400 +dollars for a
Problem that still exist but the auto repair shop wants to
charge me an additional fee. Stating that the whole cluster
must be replaced.
RPM guage erratic as well as speedometer . Removed instrument panel for stepper motor replacement for all gauges. Sent to Repair facility in Texas. All motors and replaced for $125 flat fee. Very quick turn around. Vehicle can be driven without instrument cluster while waiting for repair.
Easy DIY repair.
My problem started happening only when I was driving a long distance. I would look down and I was going "0",1st the speedo, then the tach, now the voltage...bummer!
Both speedometer and the fuel gage work erratically... the oil gage stopped working and just hang down....its not fix...
false fuel readings, traction control needs servicing, tire pressure indicator, speedo, daytime gauge lights for instruments don't work. My car has been well taken care of. This problem still exists. The first time this happened, I immediately pull over to what I thought was a safe area to inspect my tires, I used my air pressure gauge and found all tires to be within a pound or two difference over what was needed. As soon as I started the car, I had the same reading again on the digital readout. I drove six miles to the nearest tire center and had my tires checked and they were all adjusted to the exact pressure. Again the readout said the tire pressure was low. I drove home and parked the car. Later that evening, I went to the store and the digital reading was clear. I then drove a few miles and then has the fuel level low and the audible sound came on. I had just fueled my car earlier in the day. This is an unsafe problem. Had I not checked my tires earlier in a "safe" location and been on the highway, I could have been in an unsafe situation checking tires due to this ridiculous digital readout.

Dealership says I need to change out my dashboard at a cost of nearly $1000, huge thanks GM.................for nothing!!!!!!
All my gauges stop working, fir everything st the Indicator Lights kept on flickering, and stop working
When I start my vehicle, the face on my stereo is very dim, and the odometer panel, as well as the temperature control panel appear to not be working. After a while, the stereo and the other panels light back up and I can see my mileage and the temperate settings in my car.
gauges not working on speedometer after service tire monitor appeared...false readings sometimes then other times there is no functioning at all.
dummy lights on and off. Fuel gauge is never correct, always buried to the far right when full(way past the f mark)
