2003 Chevy Silverado sticky digital speedometer

During cold weather (eg.minus 5 degrees celsius or lower) speedometer needle keeps on going up to maximum. After long trips (eg.100km) it resets or goes down to zero. The following day it will go back to the max reading and slowly decrease from (200km and lower). Basically not reading accurately. What is causing this problem and how can it be fixed? Thanks.

There is a recall on the dash cluster for your truck. Check with dealer but don't let them give you the run around.

How do I change to farinheight temperature?


A Celsius degree is larger than a Fahrenheit degree by 80%. But, Celsius sets its zero point at the freezing point of water, which is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. So The conversion always includes adding 32 when going from Celsius to Fahrenheit and subtracting 32 when going the other direction. So the two formulas are as follows: Degrees F = Degrees C times 1.8 plus 32.
Degrees Celsius = (Degrees F minus 32) times 0.5556

Now, keeping it straight as to when to add or subtract 32 is also easy. Always do it while in degrees F. So, if you are going from degrees F to Celsius, subtract that 32 first because you are sill in F sized degrees. Conversely, when going from degrees C to F, wait until you've done the multiplication to convert your degrees to F, and then add the 32. Those 32 degrees in the differential are F degrees, not C degrees.

Finally, it may be easier to remember just the 1.8 or 180% instead of that 0.5556. That's ok. Just whip out your calculator and divide 1 by 1.8, which in math is called taking the reciprocal.

Engine broke due to low temperature


The water expands up to more than 9% when it freeze below 0 degrees Celsius. Due to this phenomena, during the extreme cold weather when the ambient temperature falls below 0 degrees the cylinder blocks of the automotive engines often burst or crack badly.
This damage can be prevented by using the antifreeze coolant in the cooling system.

The stepping motors in the gauges go bad. do a search on ebay for CHEVY SILVERADO INSTRUMENT CLUSTER for cheaper repair options. The dealer charges around $300.00. It will continue to worsen.
