Probably what happened is the circuit board got too hot during the old solder removal causing damage to the board. It took all of 10 minutes to install. My suggestion is if you have a camera phone take pictures or video when it happens that way you can show the dealer. Showing parts 1 through 10 below. Is there a simple way to get it reprogrammed to have my instantaneous mileage reading again??? Like the lights this is the perfect chance to upgrade your cluster with colored needles, you can get them here: or Q. This is in addition to the speedometer, and other instrument panel issues that have had to be repaired over the last 2-3 years after the warranty expired.
I mentioned I needed it about 4 days from when I ordered it. The failure will be diagnosed by the dealer. The ecu keeps track of all your features that you programmed. Anyway, I got mine from www. At least I thought I was about ten minutes later I looked down at the speedometer and it said I was going 30 miles per hour and I must have been doing 65-75. My only thing is I have not located anyone who sells it, accept for the dealer. At 12:45, we install our GlowShift gauge pod.
This will be important when you put it back together to maintain calibration so don't skip this step. At 60k I tried to get the item covered but they were not helpful. Remove trim, four screws, a plug and that's it. I'm also hearing the clunking sound that so many other people have reported it is accompanied by a wobbling sensation in the steering column. Only the speedometer exhibits this behavior. Chevy has offered to fix the problem for trucks under 70000. Now pry upwards with a needle removal tool or even a fork, try to pry straight up and not at an angle, the needle will slide right off the motor shaft.
Remove them and you will then be able to angle the instrument cluster out. They know they have an electronic defect, maybe not a safety problem, maybe so. Gauge faces are available in many more styles than just the popular Chevrolet Silverado white-faced designs. Make adjustments to the needle a little bit at a time while unplugged until you get it to point right at the zero mark. The current and failure mileages were 83,000. The failure and the current mileages were 53,000.
You remove it by squeezing the tabs together and then pull back firmly while wiggling. It started out about a month after i bought it after a storm with the gauges not working. Your milage is reset but who cares. Gm has issued a recall on this up to 70,000 miles and while I have 106,000 miles currently, the problem started at 67,000 miles. It finally stopped working and now only reads 60 mph regardless of actual speed. It was a direct bolt in and plugged right in. They don't have to replace the cluster again, all they have to do is program it for that option.
We'll never buy another chevy again. They have you print out an odometer disclaimer and ask for mileage and engine hours and program it in. I pulled over and the speedo, rpm, everything was just stuck. I guess that year had problems with that so I've heard. Why buy a gauge face? I slow down to what looked like a safe speed because I did not want to get a ticket or cause an accident. Kind of scary that mileage can be deleted that easily.
I recently installed a new Escalade cluster in my '04 Silverado. Remove trim, four screws, a plug and that's it. The answer is, no it doesnt. I was returning from an out of state trip when I noticed I was passing everyone on the interstate. Told me to call of it happens again.
As I have been doing my research this is a very common problem with thousands of people. Come on folks, get the computer out of your crack and fix the problems. After contacting gm, they told me to take it to an authorized shop for a diagnosis, which I did and they confirmed it was the issue that gm issued the contract adjustment for, but since it has now expired, there is nothing they could do for me. I took the truck when it first started happening around 100000 miles and they said it wasn't covered. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. So by getting some pictures should help your case. I should not have to pay for a known faulty part simply because my work entails extensive driving.
