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

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.
