Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

2003 chevy truck dash problem

Every morning the gauges take about 30-60 sec to begin working. They all rest on 'zero'. Then they all start working and work all day, but again the next morning it takes another 30-60 sec. Initially, scared me as i thought I had no oil press. This sounds to me like a leaking capacitor that cannot hold a charge overnight. Is this an easy fix or do i need to send this in for repair.

SOURCE: Oil gauge on my instrument panel is not working on my 03 suburban

The bezel around the cluster is just cliped on. You will have to set the parking brake and put the gear selector in 1st gear and pry around the bezel to release the clips. The cluster is held in with 4 7mm screws.

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

Gauges don't work, Fuse panel is a pain to get at

I have a '97 Chevy 1500 with an automatic trans. This morning i started it up and the speedometer and tachometer needles sit at zero. Also the gear selector fails to light up. Upon accelerating from a stop, it starts in third gear. I can manually downshift to second but not to first. It will not upshift automatically. Only manually. Also, it will not shift into overdrive when up to speed. The check gauges light comes on but only intermittently.
Additionally, the service engine light came on however I suspect that this is a separate problem as the 262 engine does not run well on this horrible new 10% ethanol fuel and it makes it throw an O2 sensor code. Does anybody have a clue here? I changed the 10amp fuse for the gauges but it hasn't fixed the issue. I didn't think it would resolve it because the rest of the instrument panel works (oil pressure, temp, voltage, fuel). Please, any advice.

It takes about 5 minutes for my van to start every morning then it works fine all day

Try turning the key on don't try to start turn it back off for 5 secs. turn back on repeat 4 or 5 times then start it. If it starts you have a fuel problem. Put pressure gauges on it you will see a pressure drop after you turn off the key. Either the fuel pump is bad or your pressure regulator is bad

99 Jeep oil pressure problems

Sounds like a bad pressure sending unit, or a partially plugged passage going to it. First though, check that the wire connection is good on the unit. Sometimes just adding a good additive such as marvel oil will free it up sufficiently to restore function. With no noises etc, that's the most likely source of your problem. If not, driving as you have been the engine would be junk by now!!!
Good luck
