Clipped the dimming lead to the stereo, and no problems. Trying to figure this problem out. 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. Chris Well my speedometer is actin up the problem is that it will read you doing 120 mph while actually you are going 55 mph the gauge will also not return to 0 or drop below 55. Investigating a possible solution now. Does this sound right to anyone else? I checked the ign1 fuse and the radio fuse, and cruise fuse as in the manual it said the instrument panel was linked to these. By simply pulling it up from the sides.
Annoying to put back on, too. I got home, parked truck and turned it off. Remove the screws from both sides here. Let me add an addendum here. Do not get fingerprints on the gauge face. Jordon did you get your problem rectafied?? All the gauges are dead, no function. I had a little trouble getting this out so I had to take apart the plastic housing for the ignition.
Take them all off and your circuit board will be exposed by taking the guage face off. Finally, the cruise control decides to work when it wants to. Step 5 I plugged mine in to make sure I soldered what needed to be done to get it working. Thanks, Jordan Hey Jordon I too have a 2000 silverado 4X4 and my gauge is acting up as well only My Check engine light keeps coming on along with the abs Light and Seatbelt light then they go off and then sometimes the Low Coolent light comes on, Anyone else have this problem?? For instrument clusters equipped with Switec stepper motors, Delphi also will provide bulbs and motors at its cost. This will prevent your stereo from dimming with the rest of the dash cluster, but may eliminate the problem. I have hit bumps before and it has done this briefly, but usually when I shut it off and restart, it is fine. I have a 2000, 6.
Check this page for more info on the problem and how to get it fixed - -Dr Dec 27, 2010. Note: nothing else is compromised headlights, radio, performance, etc. I know the guy installed an aftermarket Pioneer stereo and is making me think he did something wrong, because when the truck is running with the stereo on and I turn the headlights on the odometer and what gear i'm in go out. None of those are gone at all. If truck is stationary for several seconds fuel gauge will display empty even though it is not. It is just an intermittent problem. Using the steering wheel's height adjustment, move the steering wheel to the lowest position.
Now is a good time to change any bulbs that are burnt out. The shift position out as well. . The 15A fuse for the trailer running lights is located in the fuse panel under the hood, next to the battery. Like the other guy said, you want me to believe my parts are different in my truck because it was built on January 18 th , 2005? If its not right, make it right. The entire dash can then be removed fairly easy by pulling it apart from the housing for the odometer and across the entire dash.
I talked to one a few days ago and he said to replace the ignition switch. I did get a odometer and shift position to come on, but still no gauges. In some Silverados there is another fuse in the instrument panel to the left of the steering wheel. Bankruptcy Court approval to release only an edited copy of the agreement. Tonight I was driving home, I had the head unit plugged in listening to tunes, and as it went from light to dark out I flicked the headlights on and the odometer started to flick and cut in and out and dim and brighten up all with out me touching the dimmer.
The entire dash is held on with about 10-15 screws. Put pressure on the back of where the stepper motors are see photo. Hardly fair if I do say, to fix one sensor, however i do realize the amount of labor; lifting bed, draining tank, etc. Thanks Chevy had several recalls on speedometer and speed sensor problems. It will decrease a little apon breaking but the problem persists with the reading a higher speed and it just goes till it pegs out at the bottom of the gauge and it stays in its latest position when you shut the truck off, but when you crank the truck up it jumps down 5 mph the speedometer never returns to normal function and im not sure what is causing this I would apprieciate it if y'all could help me. I now get to figure out how to fix my ride control. I had a 75 and a 79 and the manual was useful for both.
Feb 10, 2010 Pretty common problem with these. All units will be shipped FedEx Ground. I am going to keep hounding the company about replacing mine. Posted on Aug 14, 2009 Pretty common problem with these. Other then this problem which is big because I can't drive at night and it's illegal to have no instrument panel lights. Went into hood fuse compartment did the same thing didn't work at all. If checking and replacing the fuse for the component in question doesn't work, we recommend seeking assistance from a trusted professional mechanic.
