Question about 1999 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

Electrical ? I have a 99 gmc sierra - the gas gauge and temp gauge read zero, the odometer light and shift indicator work with the key in the on position, but go out when I start the truck. Also the battery light is showing in the message center. The speedometer, Tach, and all toher gauges appear to be working properly. I put in a new Instrument cluster and that one did the same exact thing. I don't believe this is a common problem - any suggestions? thanks

    I have the same issue... security light flashes and the battery light goes on the off repeatedly like it is cycling through. The fuel gauge reads zero and the temp gauge is not working. Also the battery keeps dieing if not driven for a couple days. The tach and speedometer also seem to work then not work intermitenly. This truck seems to have turned into Christeen. Never had any problems close to this with my 98 s-10

Instruments don't work, key stuck in ignition, doesn't shift correctly

Sounds like you need a new car.
With joking aside, the problem with your speedo, tach, gas guage, temp gauge and odometer can probably be one of two things. Check your fuses. If they are fine you may need to replace your cluster panel. I had to have the entire thing changed over my speedo not working right. It was not cheap. You might want to check the relay box under the hood. Does your transmission leak? Check the fuses and relay on it also. Get a new ignition switch and replace the old one if your key is stuck. You can try WD40 on that key but don't expect any miracles. The bearings are likely shot. Sorry I posted all of this bad news. Good luck.

Waths the fuel preasure on 99 gmc sierra

  • When the ignition switch is ON and the fuel pump is running, the fuel pressure indicated by the fuel pressure gauge should read 379-427 kPa (55-62 psi) . The spring pressure inside the fuel pressure regulator controls the fuel pressure.
  • A fuel system that drops more than 34 kPa (5 psi) in 10 minutes has a leak

    This is a stepper motor problem in the instrument cluster. Each indicator be a gas, speed o, temp,etc it is run by one of these motors GM had a recall on some products I understand. These can be repaired but it must be pulled ans sent off takes about 5 to 7 days and cost 170.00 this includes return shipping, exchanges are available but I had mine repaired.
