Hi
I have the same truck and bought my truck with a bad dash,only the speedometer worked. I got it rebuilt from a GM dealer (700.00) and everything was great for a year or so.....Then the speedometer stopped working. It worked and then it went blank for 5 min. or so came on for a minute and so on......I was angry to find out the warranty was expired. I looked on EBAY and found a used one for 30.00. Put it in and everything has worked great so far. that was 2 years ago. Its hit and miss at the scrapyard but its the only option.They only used the" vacuum florescent " instrument panel for 2 years ,92, 93.....PS .....If you find one that works a GM dealer can adjust the KMS so it matches the truck you are putting it in .... Free i believe .I hope this helps....Pgale89

SOURCE: 1997 Blazer dash displays ABS light, Air Bag...sometimes battery light.

I think your BCM which is the body control module has failed, have a self test run on it to see if it will give any codes, if it won't test then it is the problem.

SOURCE: instrument cluster blank

The digital display is controlled by a processor board, and yes the board goes bad, but fixing it, well I have tried many times with no sucess, I always in the end got a rebuilt cluster from GM.

In my case, simply removing and reseating the IPC/DIC fuse restored the gauges to full functionality.

SOURCE: dash board is digital and the dash lights went out

Remove the 5 mounting screws from the instrument cluster trim plate and remove the trim plate. Remove the 4 mounting screws from the instrument panel face plate and remove the face plate.Remove the instrument light grid from the center of the cluster. From behind the instrument cluster reach behind the speedometer and disconnect the speedometer cable by releasing the tab. Pull the cluster forward just enough to detach the "check engine" light bulb from the center of the cluster. Remove the instrument cluster from the dashboard.

SOURCE: The gauges in my chevy

CARS AND TRUCKS HAVE SENDING UNITS AND SWITCHES SCREWED INTO AND MOUNTED ALL OVER THEM, IF THE WHOLE CONSOLE GOES DEAD ITS A BURNT FUSE OR THE PIGTAIL THAT PLUGS INTO BACK OF THE DISPLAY HAS COME LOOSE, CHECK FUSE HOLDER THEN IF ITS NOT A FUSE YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE DASH APART TO CHECK PIGTAIL ON CONSOLE.

Could be a bad cluster. If one is cable driven, and the other electric. You could have a bad speed sensor in the transmission which will make the speedo not work.
