Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Chevrolet Silverado instrument cluster no working

I took my aftermarket CD player out, but I was stupid enough to leave my truck running. The ground on the radio shorted out my entire dash from the fuel gage to the speedometer. I checked all of the fuses that I could find what do you suggest? (2000 Chevrolet Silverado)

Hey, Buddy.. I just had the same thing happen to me. If you look under the hood over the left front tire you will have a black box with Electrical Center written on the top of it. Just look in there you will have a fuse marked Radio that will be blown. It should be a 15 amp fuse.

I am surprised that GM has all that stuff on one fuse and of all things on the Radio fuse...

Anyway,,, good luck take care.. God Bless..

Michael..

    Look under the hood on the left side over the tire there is a electrical center box.. Black box in front of the master cyl. Just look in there and replace the fuse marked Radio. It should be a 15 amp fuse.

I remove two panel underneath the steering column. The first panel is removed using a 10 mm socket. The second panel is removed using a torx socket (can't remember the size). Removing these two panels gives you room to get to the clip on speedomter. Looking at the speedometer, you should see two rectangular holes on each side of the speedometer cover. I use a awl to push in the clip (you could use a screwdriver). Looking underneath the dash, you should be able to see the clip you are pushing on with the awl. I take my 2nd awl and put it behind the clip. I get the left side to release. One the speedometer cover releases, you can see the speedometer. You will see the 4 torx screws (t20) and two smaller clips holding the speedometer. All that is left is the wiring. (I take a sharpie pen and mark one of my wire locations on the speedometer. I am not sure what it does. It is a single wire.)

SOURCE: 2000 Chrysler Voyager Instrument Cluster is dead

have you got a dimmer switch on your model to dim the dash lights. if you have it may be faulty. link the cables together if the lights work the switch is faulty. if you have not got a dimmer switch
your printed circuit on the back of the dash may be faulty or the plug in the back of the dash is not pushed all the way in. hope this helps

SOURCE: instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.
