Gauges Shut off after when idleing....

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe gauges shut off after idling for about 15 mins. Once the car is shut off and restarted the gauges go back to normal. Checked the fuse panel and wires and cannot find anything visually wrong with it. Any ideas?

2003 sierra gauges not working plus dash plus drains my battery any suggestions ?

Try this simple trick. Shut off every thing in your vehicle, radio, ac, lights, windshield wipers etc.Turn off the vehicle put it in park. Disconnect your battery , wait 5 minutes. Then Without turning any thing on leaving the vehicle in park reconnect the battery start the vehicle and let it Idle for approx 10 minutes. This allows your computer to reset all of your gauges. By assuring that everything is off your computer can concentrate on resetting everything correctly without missing a step . This will set your Idle and all of your Gauges. Whenever your battery is disconnected for what ever reason this step should be followed immediately upon reconnect.

Truck idles low when i come to stop

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My 2003 chevy tahoe dashboard gauges stopped working, i don't know which fuses to check out. they would go out sometimes and then go back on when i restarted the car up. please help.

The dash cluster is know for two different problems.

If individual gauges bounced erratically and then quit, the little stepper motors that run them are bad. Upgrades are available from eBay, but you need PC soldering experience to change them out. An internet search will show allot of people who will rebuild the cluster for you.

If the entire cluster died all at once, the most common issue is bad solder joints near where the plug attaches to the board. This is an easier fix than the stepper motors, but still you need to be handy with a soldering iron!

Pulled 5,000 lb boat in 100 degree heat w/ 2003 Tahoe on Sunday (AC/lights/stereo, etc...). Mon a.m. Tahoe wouldn't crank- only radio & lights worked. 8 hrs later started with no problem. Let idle...

I would check battery connections, battery to motor ground, battery to body ground and motor to body ground strap connections. If you have a bad ground it can cause all kinds of electrical problems.

the egr valve on the intake might have a chunk of carbon stuck in it holding it open and that will give you a rough idle and some black smoke out of the tail pipe,its located to the left rear of the air cleaner,u can get a better look at it once you grt the air cleaner off,once u do that start it and try to push up on the diaphram in the egr with 2 fingers and see if that makes a difference,if it doesnt pull the egr off and see if anything is holding it open,hope this helps

Whenever my tahoe is idling or im going less than 15 mph it keeps trying to die

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
