Went to dealer, dealer said there is a TSB dated March 2009. My vehicle fell under the TSB pre-requisites. Took it in, dealer replaced Instrument CLuster Panel. Charged me $100.00 for "Good Faith" work? What is "Good Faith" work?

I always will suggest to check the fuses first before you dive into something more complicated. The fuse boxes can be located under the dash to the left of the steering column or under the hood. Sometimes depending on the vehicle, in both spots.

My nissan Almera S reg has no side lights or dash lights.All fuses seem ok.


This solution will be of great help to you,even in the case of future or other dashboard problems;
Instrument cluster consists of electronic analog gauges, various warning lights, and optional tachometer. Vehicles equipped with tachometer have an electronic vacuum fluorescent transmission range indicator (PRND3L),odometer and trip odometer display. Vehicles without tachometer are equipped with a cable-operated transmission range indicator.
Instrument cluster is equipped with the following warning lights:
Battery voltage.
Cruise (speed control).
Door ajar.
Fasten seat belt.
Lift gate ajar.
Low fuel level.
Low windshield and washer level.
Traction Control.
The Body Control Module (BCM), which receives input from various sensors, sends display information to instrument cluster and operates gauges. Instrument cluster incorporates a self-test diagnostic feature to identify electronic problems. BCM, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), and Transmission Control Module (TCM) are continuously monitored by the diagnostic system.

SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
With ignition off, press and hold TRIP and RESET buttons while turning ignition switch to ON position. Continue to hold TRIP and RESET buttons until odometer window displays CODE (approximately 5 seconds). If problem exists, system will display diagnostic trouble codes. See DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART table. If no problem exists, Code 999 (end test) will be displayed.
DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART
CodeDescription
110.......Cluster Memory Fault
111.......Cluster Calibration Fault
905.......No CCD Bus Message From TCM
921.......Odometer Fault From BCM
940.......No CCD Bus Message From PCM

After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:
Dim test.
Calibration test.
Odometer segment test.
Electronic Transmission Range indicator segment test.
Dim Test
CHEC-0 will be displayed in odometer window. Instrument cluster will dim Vacuum Florescent (VF) display. If VF displays do not dim, a problem in instrument cluster exists. See BODY CONTROL COMPUTER TESTS in BODY CONTROL COMPUTER article.
Calibration Test
CHEC-1 will be displayed in odometer window. Each of instrument cluster gauges will move sequentially through each calibration point. See GAUGE CALIBRATIONS table. If gauge needle is not calibrated properly, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

Odometer Segment Test
CHEC-2 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of odometer will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.
Electronic Transmission Range Indicator Segment Test
CHEC-3 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.

Locate a complete gauge cluster from a local salvage yard...unless you have the odometer recalibrated in the replacement unit however, you will be required to list "mileage indicator" is not accurate to any buyer...Hope this helps.

My gas gauge works intermittently and speedometer reads 60 mph at idle


I am about to buy an 01 Silverado 1500. The gas gauge wasn't working and the whole odometer display was blank. The dealer checked it out and said it needs a new instrument cluster. You might check into that.

The Chevy instrument panels had problems with the gauges functioning. Mine says I am always doing 120mph, for the past 80,000 miles. See your dealer for a replacement. It wasn't recalled, but there was a class action suit for some of the production years which might cover replacement.

Please rate this answer. Thank you.
