Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
I have a 2003 Chevrolet 2500HD and my dash gauges have quit working but, my digital read out is still working (Fuel mileage, Odometer, etc...). What could this be?
In my case, simply removing and reseating the IPC/DIC fuse restored the gauges to full functionality.

I had my instrument cluster repaired by Mr Whizard this summer as several of the guages were intermittently failing, The recent failure of the entire cluster (as above) was fixed by pulling and replacing the IPC/DIC Fuse.

Pull out and re-set the DIC fuse. It's i the fuse box under the hood. This solution worked for me.Kind of funny the DIC was still working but all the guages weren't.

Chevrolet recalled the instrument cluster about a year ago.
Had mine replaced ~3 years ago out-of-pocket (2004 2500HD Duramax) and Chevy reimbursed me after sending them my receipts.
take it to dealer and ask about recall. they should replace at no cost...if the problem is actually the cluster.

There are known issues with the gauges on the 03 silverado. Even though the cages appear analog, they are stepper motor controlled by the computer. This is a fancy way of saying digital. Check with the dealer about a recall! Since all gauges appear to have quit at one time I would agree with a previous post that the computer program is flawed. It may need to be reset - again check with the dealer.

Dorman has a rebuilt unit for @ $190.00 plus core. You need your Vin and miliage when you order Part # 599-300 is just one of the available part numbers

I had the same problem with my 2003 Chevy 2500HD .. I wound up getting a used one from another Chevy Silverado at a junk yard. I took both the old one and the one that cost $120 to a dealer to see if there is anyway to transfer the mileage information onto the used one and was told that both instrument clusters would have to be shipped to GM to transfer the info and would cost anywhere from $600-$800. I said the heck with it and noted the milage from the old one in my owners manual along with the milage showing on the one from the junkyard as a "starting" milage so I can calculate the exact milage if I need to. To swap out instrument clusters is pretty simple. The dashboard all around the cluster pretty much all just snaps together so once you pop it all apart (but if I remember right there might be 2 screws) the instrument cluster should be able to slide forward and there will be a big plug on the back of it. Undo that plug and plug in the replacement then put your dash back together and you should be good to go..
