Ok you're now ready to remove the old and replace them with new ones. If anyone has any solutions you will receive my eternal gratitude. I looked over the fuses, I looked over the quick to find plugs and have started it many times to find nothing has fixed it. Then, very slowly, the needle on the fuel gauge started to rise, and after about 15 minutes of driving was finally registering what seemed to be the correct amount. Also if your battery is draining down due to a problem with the gauge cluster we can fix that as well. Has the speedometer on your Chevy Silverado stopped telling you you actual speed? While driving and coming a stop sign or light and pressing on the brakes there is a chatter on the brake pedal or grinding noise from the vehicle. Then it would stop about 10 to 15 seconds then start again, then about 5 minutes later it started to do it continuously.
The vehicle was towed to an independent repair shop for repairs caused by the fire. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. In 2007, the manufacturer sent a letter to alert the contact of a defect with the speedometer however, no recall was issued. We have had several people tells what needs to be replaced, bought new gauges, still doesn't work, bought new computor, speed censor. It can be seized in place, pull and wiggle firmly and it will break loose. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who informed the contact that the failure was contributed to the faulty instrument panel cluster.
Step 4 When I tried to simply heat the resistors to reflow the factory solder the dumb 511 resistor came off so best just to solder over what is there. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster. I've asked tons of mechanics and they always tell me they don't know. I have an '01 silverado. So hard that my ass end slid to the side about 3 feet, I was doing 70 when this happened.
You will be left with exposed face gauge and needles and the circuit board on the back. After multiple starts of the vehicle, the speedometer eventually worked its way back to zero. It is a severe safety factor. If that's the case you would need to isolate that unit to be sure the problem was within it and not the result of a failure somewhere else. . I have, it seems, fixed the parasitic draw that was plaguing me though.
The contact obtained a fire extinguisher and quenched the fire. Ok you're now ready to remove the old and replace them with new ones. And now I start it and it keeps stalling. Hopefully this thread will help someone. I also lost gas gauge, and oil pressure gauge.
Went into hood fuse compartment did the same thing didn't work at all. Do not get fingerprints on the gauge face. What if I replaced a motor and that gauge still doesn't work? High beam indicator light 5. I'm not certain it would have caused a problem if I had broken or clipped it off, but I was careful and it's still there. They all go to a central splice point so you can remove modules to eliminate a module and the wire to it as the culprit. Hope this helps and keep us posted. They work and look great.
I bought this 2001 Chevrolet z71 4x4 on Sep 10 2013. Now its doing it again but now its also the gas gauge. A police report was filed. I am a 47yr old mom of 5. This solution will be of great help to you,even in the case of future or other dashboard problems; Instrument cluster consists of electronic analog gauges, various warning lights, and optional tachometer.
Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. I am a 47yr old mom of 5. While driving approximately 25-30 mph he noticed that the speedometer was not working properly. You're now ready to re-install the cluster and test our your job! This simply pulls off, and requires no tools. I got home, parked truck and turned it off. Finally, rotate each needle counter clockwise until the tip of the needle points right to the mark on the masking tape that you made in a previous step.
To the best of my knowledge, the truck did not fail during the stated timeframe. After playing with the tilt a little more the lights would come back on and I would drive away. Finally, the cruise control decides to work when it wants to. Using the steering wheel's height adjustment, move the steering wheel to the lowest position. This doesn't happen when you are traveling at higher speeds.
Only things that work is the speedometer and oil pressure gauges. So if it got stuck in the middle it would assume that were it is, is at zero. I wiggled and twisted it after I got the three clips loose and it took patience and tested my tranquility. So the computers were working fine. I have passed your name and number on to my mechanic, so you may hear from him. Now you can pop the motors off the front of the board once all the old solder has been removed.
