Hello, this problem is due to a failing stepper motor. The stepper motor is the motor behind the gauge that controls the movement of the needle. When a stepper motor begins to go out it will cause the gauge needle to stick, skip around, stay at zero or max out on the gauge. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the stepper motor with a new one. While replacing one motor it is best to go ahead and replace them all as the others will go out in time as well. Your cluster will have one motor for each gauge. Here's a link to a page showing exactly how to replace a GM stepper motor and where to get the correct parts to do the job!

Many speedo dials on many American models seem to suffer an early demise. It usually turns out to be the dial itself which is faulty, so I'd recommend checking and changing this first

The seat tilt moves forward but not back. thus I am stuck all the way forward. Is there an override or manual way to tilt the seat back??


All the motors under the seat are bi-directional, meaning you can apply power (12V) on one side and ground on the other, it will turn in one direction. If you reverse the wires it will move in the opposite direction. Quite often the motors fail, but if it at least works in one direction it's usually a wiring issue. Follow the wires from the failed motor to the connector, and jumper them both. The motor should move backwards, and you'll have to find the problem in the wiring. If it doesn't move, lightly tap on the motor with power and ground supplied, if it now moves the motor is starting to fail

Keys stuck in ignition. its in park. ( and 3 days out of warrenty)


In the ring around the ignition switch (where your key is stuck) there is a recessed dimple. Get a ballpoint pen, insert into the dimple, hold it there while turning your key to the lock position (if it's not already there) and remove the key.

The key is stuck in the ignition cant start. Thanks


Turn your steering wheel left or right side. If it moves, then good for you as the key will not be stuck anymore. But if doesn't, it probably means that locking system in the steering wheel is damaged. For this, you can just turn the steering wheel opposite to the direction of the car wheels. Most of the time, cars are turned off with the wheels turned on the opposite directions, which makes the key get stuck in the ignition due to pressure in the steering wheel. When the pressure is released from the steering column, a click can be heard and key is released.

If no luck, there might be a problem with shifter mechanism, which means that you have a trip to the repair shop in store for you. Get this problem addressed immediately, as it could mean that your shift interlock is out of order, which can increase the chances of deploying the air bag up in your face, causing a serious injury.
