My speedometer works but my digital odometer does not work on my 2003 old alero


This is one guy's advice: Replace the speedo head, that should take care of the problem."

This site is also interesting because the guy said
General Motors cars had instrument cluster problems from 2003 through 2006. When I researched instrument cluster problems on the Internet what I found raised concerns in me. Many of those vehicles had problems that began with the instrument cluster, but eventually led to the engine refusing to start.
(an electronic instrument cluster, digital instrument panel or digital dash for short, is a set of instrumentation, including the speedometer, that is displayed with a digital readout rather than with the traditional analog gauges. Many refer to it simply as a digital speedometer.)

All gauges quit working. Replaced all stepper motors. Still nothing is working.


Is there power (B+) an ground's for instrument cluster ? When you turn the key to the run position ( not start ) do the gauges do the sweep test ?
Did you perform the Instrument Cluster Diagnostic System Check?
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Instrument Cluster
2
Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF.
Observe the instrument cluster.
Does the instrument cluster perform the displays test?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3

Turn the ignition OFF.
Disconnect the IPC.
Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF.
Connect a test lamp between the ignition 1 voltage circuit and a good ground.
Does the test lamp illuminate?

Perform Diagnostic System Check - Instrument Cluster , Diagnostic System Check - Driver Information Systems or Diagnostic System Check - Audible Warnings before using the Symptom Tables in order to verify that all of the following are true:
• There are no DTCs set.
• The control modules can communicate via the serial data link.
Review the system operation in order to familiarize yourself with the system functions. Refer to the following:
• Instrument Cluster Description and Operation
• Indicator/Warning Message Description and Operation
• Driver Information Center (DIC) Description and Operation
• Audible Warnings Description and Operation
If you don't know about serial data communication an DTC'S I strongly suggest you take your vehicle to a Chevy dealer or an ASE certified repair shop .

'95 Lincoln town car. Husband was driving uphill and the digital dash suddenly went dark. Radio is working and a/c is not. Exterior light still working and so are interior lights besides the dash


Could be a bad wire possibly chaffing or grounding out to to another wire or frame. Check your fuses. You may want to pull the dash out and check that wiring as well

Rpm , gas , temp guage not working


All of these gauges are digital are controlled by a computer in the instrument cluster. You will need to remove the cluster and send it out for repair by a factory approved instrument cluster repair center. You can find these on line. JUst Goggle "Dodge Instrument Cluster repair"

My 2004 Trailblazer instrument cluster has stopped functioning. The Tach, speedo, oil press, gas, and temp guages spin irregularly and their readings at this point are meaningless. The only things that do...


Hello Mcook389,
If you have above average soldering and de-soldering skills you can perform the repair yourself.
I have repaired many GM instrument clusters and without question this issue is affecting GM instrument cluster all over the country. The particular item that is giving you the bad gauge readings is the stepper motor that drives each gauge.
Please visit my website for complete repair information if you decide to outsource the repair. www.kincerservice.com
Thanks Mike

Instrument cluster stops working while driving and will start again when it's ready. Don't have a tach, speedometer, odometer, temp or gas gauge working when it stops. Cruise control still works when this...


Go to your Fuse and Relay Box called the Power Distribution Center located in your engine comparment and Remove and Replace your Accessories Relay. Your Instrument Cluster is run off this. You should have a Spare Relay of the same type (size and shape). If not use a non-engine operation Relay (that is known to be working!) of the same type (size and shape), and check the operations of both the Instrument Cluster and the relay you switched-it-out-for. If the Instrument Cluster works and the other quit working, then it is the Relay that is bad and nneds to be replaced.
If this does not work, or if you have intermittent failures, there may be a loose connection and/or a bad power or ground supply. Most of the time - it is the Relay that needs to be replaced.

Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

From behind the instrument cluster reach behind the speedometer and disconnect the speedometer cable by releasing the tab. Pull the cluster forward just enough to detach the "check engine" light bulb from the center of the cluster. Remove the instrument cluster from the dashboard.
