What you have is a defective dash cluster. I had this same problem along with some speedo issues. I called the National Chevrolet Customer Service department and they directed me to the dealer and it was replaced free of charge as a known problem, it is easier to get this done before you have 100K on the truck. If you get any heartburn from them, keep calling the national customer service #. When you call them, they will give you a case # to follow this complaint with. There is no remedy other than having it replaced and if you pay for it the sum will be around $700 on a good day. When you get this done, please make sure that all of your dash and steering wheel options work, like the radio and driver data information buttons and readouts as they forgot to hook these wire harnesses back up when the steering wheel was replaced. Good luck, be persistent if necessary.

I also had a speedometer problem in my 2004 Chevrolet Silverado

the speedometer was not working at all and I found a website where I had it fixed for $140. That was a lot cheaper than the $700 that the dealer wanted to replace the instrument panel.

Here is the website

Any suggestions where to start? Some people have suggested a speed sensor?

I had 3 of my guages go out on me over a period of time. After looking for clues here on the internet, someone turned me onto the known Chevy problem. You need to take your vehicle to your local dealer. They will assess the problem for warranty, which is good up to 7 years on this known problem. Should it be proven their problem, they will fix it for free within about 10 days once the part(s) is ordered. Keep in mind the initial look may cost about $75 should it not be associated with the dash board. I had no problems with getting mine fixed for free because of the extended chevy warranty on this problem. You should not have to call any claim center. Good Luck

I've had problems with my 2004 Chevrolet Silverado starting at about 70, 000 mi. The first was a speedometer that stopped functioning. Then the "engine service" yellow icon came on. Before I made it to the dealer for servicing the speedometer returned to working? The dealer did an oil change, cleared the service engine light and told me they couldn't find a problem. Now that I know about the defect I wonder why they didn't mention the defect? After a few days the light came on again, and within a month the speedometer stopped working again, however this time it was all the guages in the cluster ceased to operate. I used my GPS for a speedometer and by filling the fuel tank and resetting the GPS's trip meter Im able to calculate, to a certain degree, the fuel level and speed. Now the blue high-beam light glows at night and the dealer says It will cost between $350-$500! I baby my truck. My brother and I have had Chevy/GM vehicles since the '70's. Im losing faith in GM Quality Control. I've seen other comments online where GM admits the defect and Mr. GoodWrench takes care of the cost. How do I find the alleged claim site? Thanks in advance for any help! -Kevin Callahan kevincocoa@aol.com

My 2005 SS Pickup speedo cable went out this weekend, so disappointing to hear from others that this is a common occurence with chev trucks. This is not good news. Sucker is stuck at 50 . I suppose the only thing in this trucks future is the entire dash to go out. Bravo!! Thanks GM

I believe that there is a class action law suit against GM for this defect. I was contacted two years ago, prior to mine going bad. The problem is a deffective stepper motor for the spedo. My was replaced under the extended warrenty. Good Luck

I've been looking for 2+ years now for something about my fuel gauge malfunctioning. When I reported this issue near 45k miles I was told it would be 400+ to fix it (I was already out of warranty) Now my speedo is having trouble, my lights dim out every now and again, but since i'm sitting at 89k miles I'm left out of the coverage. No-one from GM ever contacted me about the recall/special coverage, no-one offered to fix it when I brought it to the dealer's attention when it would have been covered.

Now the dealer wants me to pay the fee to fix it out of pocket, and GM Corporate said it's my fault for buying a used vehicle instead of a new one as only new customer's got notified. (Bought it at a chevy dealer, in the used section)

What do I do now? How do I get this replaced under the recall?

Over the course of the past year all of my gauges except the speedo have stopped working on my 2004 silverado. I was not aware of the recall and even if I had been notified I was over the mileage limit. Refuse to pay the 700 for dealership to fix. trying to find a replacement part. does anyone know the part #?

have an '03 2500 silverado and am on my third instrument panel. first two were on GM recall, the third has held up well for about 25000 miles. Infrequently it does go out with no guages working except the odometer.

Try this, remove the ipc/dic fuse from the under hood fuse box with the engine off. It's marked by the diagram on the underside of the fuse box cover, or in your owners manual. Wait a few minutes and plug it back in. Start it back up and it should restore.

The same also works if your a/c starts blowing hot on one side and cold on the other. Remove the hvac/ecas fuse let it sit a few and plug it back in.

The electicals on these GM trucks are a farse. Next one is going to be a FORD.

My 04 silverado oil gauge is out, and the others sometimes work. I was never told about a recall and now am out of coverage( would have been in if they would have told me). Chevy will not fix for under 600.00. This is bull***t. I have always owned Chevy and this is not how you take care of crappy parts and loyal customers. When my two Chevy's are done, I will consider someone with better warranties/craftsmanship

started having numerous problems this past week. 1-engine started running hot with my plow on the vehicle. i was able to angle it to help but still a problem at times. then i noticed my oil gauge stopped working. soon after that my eng light came on and the code was p0894. i checked the trans fluid due to it being a trans code and the fluid is red and full.i drove it again and noticed my oil gauge is now working but my speedo is not working properly. i am being told i have a few problems one being a failing transmission, a bad dash cluster and my clutch fan is no good. i have replaced the clutch fan and won't know if the problem has been corrected until i run with the plow again. as for the other 2 issues they seem to coincidental. i have been looking for common componenets and the only ones i see are the pcm and vss, any ideas?

I am trying to get some help from Chverolet about fixing my

cluster unit. This is the 2nd time it has gone bad. The first was on when the truck was still on warrenty and the 2nd under 40, 000 miles! What do I have to do to get them to fix their problem? This truck was my first vehicle purchase ever for me and this is what I get for my money. Any help would be appreciated.

If anyone knows of any class action lawsuits over the cluster problems with 2003 GM Silverado's I would like very much to add my name to it. They need to be held accountable for this wide spread problem. Please let me know if there are any out there.

Autoxpresstech has info for many Chevy and GM cluster repairs less than $100.
