Chevrolet GMC Cluster Gauge Diagnosis and Repair

Chevrolet GMC Cluster Gauge Diagnosis and Repair

In todays video I show the in depth diagnosis and repair process for a GM vehicle with a failed instrument cluster. The subject vehicle, a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, came in with a symptom of no gauge operation and no drivers information display function. This symptom, diagnostic process and repair is similar to year models 1999-2004 Chevy, GMC, and Cadillac trucks and SUV’s including Silverado, Tahoe, Sierra, Yukon, Escalade and others. I cover many of the most common issues and repairs for this common issue effecting these instrument panels.

One repair guy found an issue with the ground with the black and white wire at the odm hook up. I am going to try that first before having to replace a whole new cluster. Or do the reset too. But Thank you if all else fails.

On my cluster the circuit board solder joints were mostly cold. Open connections all over the board. I just resoldered them all. Everything came back to life. No problems since.

white2eagle says:

I have same issue with mine but the weird thing is if I remove the fuse for the cluster my radio works just fine but as soon as I put fuse back in for the cluster the radio goes off and stays off. Is there something that ties the cluster with the radio? It drives me nuts…
