Likely a bad sodder joint on the board. Disassemble the cluster (find instruction on YouTube) and resodder the two primary connections for the indicator LED group. These are the ones on the ends which are doubled-up. Resodder from backside of board.

SOURCE: bright indicator on dash on when lights are on.

could be light from a separate source. Try turning off the instrument lights and try hi/low again. If you still see the light on both hi/low, it could be in your control arm(turn signal indicator).

SOURCE: Light bulb for shift indicator and mileage

Yes it can this is a known problem. If you are not familiar with your car take this in to be fixed (expensive) if you are then its as easy as 123. First you will need to remove this cluster. second you will need to pull the back plastic casing off to get at the board. 3rd there are a set of 4 150ohm resistors that are usually broken off or burnt out. You will need to know how to solder and just get these changed out... about a 1.50 for resistors at radio shack

SOURCE: Odometer is completely out and gear indicator is dim

This is a common problem on these. You will have to have the cluster replaced or rebuilt to fix it.

Why fuse #7 burn out instrument cluster


http://www.my-chevy-venture.com/fuses.html Indicates it serves the indicator lights for your shift lever Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Low. So you have a short to ground (body metal) somewhere after the fuse box on to the indicator light and possibly the Ignition switch. Has someone worked on the car recently? Take it back or ask them to fix it. If someone you know.
A very careful inspection of all the wires from the fuse box on to the indicator light switches and possibly the Ignition switch will hopefully reveal the short. Sometimes the body metal will cut into the cables and cause a short, sometimes from a collision. I like the new very bright led flashlight for this kind of inspection in the dark. Good luck

Dim lights will not work on my 2002 tahoe but my brights do


The common problem here is the high/low switch in the stalk. It's connected with a black and a gray connector. The latter is where you want to start checking with a multimeter.

I have a 2005 Chevy Tahoe and the hazards come on when I use my left turn signal occasionally. The right turn signal works fine.


hi.

i am not sure if you mean your hazard lights actually come on, or if all 4 indicators come on at the same time.
hazards coming on would suggest a fault in the indicator switch, or a short in the wiring.

all 4 indicators coming on, would suggest a bad earth connection on the rear left side of the vehicle. this is far more likely, and can be cured by tracing the earth wire to teh body of the car, and check for loose, damaged wires, or corrosion at the earth point on the body.

easy way to tell, is to switch on the tail lights at the same time. if these get brighter and dimmer in time with the indicators, it is almost certainly an earth fault.

hope this helps

I have a 1996 Chevy tahoe it Starts and run fine, just doesnt want to shift in to 3rd or 4th gear?


Check to make sure that the fluid level is correct. There are shift solenoids inside your transmission that could be bad or it could be more serious internal problems. You can't really tell without a scanner. You could remove your tranny oil pan and see if there is a lot of sediment and chunks in the bottom of it. That is not a good sign if there is. If your oil is dark and has burnt smell that is not good either. When you pull your pan and filter off you will then be able to see the shift solenoid. They are easy to change but again you don't really know if they are bad without a scan tool.
