Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
On track and off track. So i have to keep turning the ignition when the needle is in the right area. so i do that and the next day its falling again im just trying to fix it with out having to go to the shop any help is greatly needed.
GM's instrument clusters installed on 03-06 year models have faulty stepper motors installed on the instrument clusters circuitry. Dealership will quote you somewhere around 500 dollars to fix this problem. You will be paying for a NEW cluster (probably has same faulty motors in it) + milage programming and installation. There is a way to avoid all of this as i have done if you are a little mechanically inclined and can handle a soldering iron. I fixed my instrument cluster for 40 dollars. My speedometer and temp guage needles were going haywire and only worked when they wanted. i ordered updated stepper motors on ebay ... just do a search for impala stepper motors or something. Make sure they are the updated ones. buy yourself a soldering iron at radio shack (20-30 watt max) should be around 8 bucks. buy some rosin core solder (about 5 bucks), and a desoldering braid(about 5 bucks) if you have a cluster with 3 guages buy 3 motors. if you have a cluster with 5 guages.. buy 5. you need to replace them all at once so you wont have to replace the one or two that still worked later. heres a link to my how to wich explains it all.
