SOURCE: chevy steering wheel controls

You first have to disarm and remove the air bag (unscrews with bolts from behind the steering wheel) and then you will see the screws for the switches. Only the silverado awitches will work.

SOURCE: 01 Chevy Silverado 4 X 4 not working. 4WD light

Having the same exact problem but with my 1999 escalade. Thought it was the actuator bought a new one installed it transfer case would engage but front end wouldnt lock. Took it out of housing left it plugged in got a friend to go through all the 4wd for me and the plunger never moved out the actuator. Checked my wiring harness which is a four prong ann it had one hot prong like it is suppose to. Traced wires even replaced dash switch same problem. Taking it to local dealership tom to have it checked for codes. I was told it could be the transfercase actuator even though its workin that actuator is what sends power to the front to engage the actuator to lock the differential.

SOURCE: I need to remove the dash in 2005 chevy silverado

to remove the dash in your truck you will need to dedicate about 8-10 hours. first start with removing your kicker panels, then the plastic covers on your a-pillars. remove the bezels around your instrument panels. you should be able to see some black screws by now, they should be a 7mm some may be a 5.5mm start removing all the screws you can. next you will need to un plug all of your switches, airbags(yellow plugs), 12v accessory plugs, be sure to remove your battery cables before unplugging all of this. your dash cover is a pain to remove so be patient with it or you will break it easily. to remove your dash cover remove the screws in the front and you will have to pop the back of dash up then remove. next you will need to remove your steering wheel/column this is easily done however you will need alot of extensions for your ratchet to do this. after pulling your steering wheel/column remove the four screws by your windshield to remove your sub-dash i believe they will be a 10mm. remove your sub-dash. next you will need to remove the dash support frame, you will need a 15mm and a 10mm socket to do this, i believe there is 5 bolts holding this on. if needed you can remove the black box that holds your fan heater core blender door cab filters and etc... to do this you have to remove the ac hoses coming out of your dryer can going into the firewall, this will bleed out all of your freeon, next remove the heater hoses, now there are 7 bolts or nuts to remove on your firewall, when you remove those you can pull out the black box.

Hello, Im a US Marine and dont know alot about automotive but Im not completly numb... My father in-laws 2003 4x4 dodge pick has been blowing fuse #18 which when blown or removed the dash lights go out......


That fuse also supplies illumination to the radio, hvac controller, cup holder and cigarette tray. I think the best thing to do is start unplugging each one of these until the fuse stops blowing. Then plug the last think in that you unplugged to make sure that makes the fuse blow. If you suspect the instrument cluster start with that first.

01 f150 pickup the digtal odometer will not light up cluster lights and speedometer work thanks.


This is a common problem, either tap or hit the top if the dash and it shoudl come back on. Normally caused by heat buildup in the dash, the only way to fix it unfortunatly is to replace the whole cluster. Most people have no problem just hitting the top of the dash a few times.

The dash smoked and now none of the gauges work. I was told there was a battery in it that could not be replaced, and I would have to replace the whole cluster. Is this correct? What are my options on...


Never heard of a battery inside an instrument cluster. Modern clusters do have various capacitors and other electrical components and can be complex to repair when they fail.

There are numerous cluster repair places across the country that do this type repair work. Google "speedometer repairs." You will have to remove the cluster and ship it to them.

My dash lights are not lighting up and the fules is not burn out


Is it only a few in the dash? Around or in the gauge cluster?

If they are in the cluster than you have to remove the whole gauge cluster, it comes out as a whole unit, the bulb accesses are in the back of the cluster, they usually twist out.

Sometimes the trim around the cluster will usually pop out, only connected by spring clips. Some are connected with screws and may have plastic caps covering them. Once you remove the trim, the cluster is screwed in and you should see them around the periphery of the cluster.

If every single light went out all at once, it seems like it would be more of a fuse, or bad wiring to the dash.

95 saab 900 turb0 gauge cluster works intermetanly


I have this problem too and my new Saab mechanic told me that I would probably need a new instrument cluster. He said a brand new one costs $2500 but that he would order me a used one from a car that had fewer miles than mine as you can set them back but not forward. He both diagnosed and temporarily "fixed" the problem by slamming his hand really hard on the dash over the panel and all the lights and gauges immediately started working fine....for now. I haven't had the work done yet (I have a 1998 Saab 900S with 130K) so if anyone has any other ideas about this I would love to know what they are. This issue with the gauges and dash lights has been happening on and off for over a YEAR and this is the first time someone has had any idea what it is. I already had my ignition switched replaced so we know that's not what it was. THANKS
