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!

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.

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

Gas gauge jumps around and goes from full to empty causing low fuel light to come on. Now the battery gauge is showing low voltage. (just put new battery in and alternator checks out fine. Lights on dash dim and then brighten up again.

dash lights and instruments are not working. I went to get the mileage and the instruments did not work so I banged on the right inside of the dash instrument area and now all lights and instruments work!! Must be a bad ground or hot wire connection.
Speedometer failed then other gages.
At times the instrument cluster does not light up when starting vehicle. When it finally decides to light up, I gat a "tire monitor pressure" comes on and I push a button to clear it and the odometer comes back on. It does this rather frequently.
It started at about 50k and dealer kept changing top sensors now lights on cluster went dim and tire sensor error continues dealer refused to properly look into problem since beginnin.
First my speedometer started giving false readings, then a month later it just stopped past the 120mph mark. A while later the oil pressure gauge started doing the same thing. Now they are both stuck on the same position. It's still not fixed!
