Used to be, the dealers would take a digital dash and send it somewhere for repair (probably back to the part manufacturer)-and it was very expensive. I imagine they still do that.
I would look for a used one from salvage yards, $25-$50 for a used one, versus as much as $400 to send it off for repair.
A computer or electronic geek familiar with digital dashes might be able to fix it for a reasonable cost, if you could find such a local person.

SOURCE: Electrical problem with the dash.

This wiring problem can be much more costly, and time consuming, than you want to take on.
Professional mechanics cringe, when a wiring problem of this magnitude comes their way!

It's probably a bad ground for the instrument cluster.
The instrument cluster housing is plastic. There is a flat, thin, 2 to 3 inch wide, piece of plastic that is the wiring harness for this instrument cluster.
In this flat piece of plastic, are thin flat copper strips. These are like wires, to conduct the electricity to the gauges, lights, and the rest of the instrumentation.

Since the plastic instrument cluster is not metal, and therefore it can't be used as a Ground source, the flat piece of plastic I mentioned above, has a Ground wire to it. May be more than one.

This ground wire/s could have corrosion on the terminal end, where it attaches to the truck body.
Bad ground, everything goes haywire. The ground wires, might loose on the terminals used for the flat piece of plastic.

Another source of a bad ground problem overlooked, is that the cab of a truck receives it's,
Main ground from the engine.

There should be Two ground straps, coming from the firewall over to the engine. Sometimes, when the upper part of an engine, or the engine is replaced, the mechanic neglects to reinstall these ground straps.

Sometimes just one ground strap is reinstalled, and this is No good!
Also both terminal ends of these ground straps are a good source for corrosion to develop.
Corrosion makes a bad contact.

I myself would take the truck back.

If the blower works, but no heat comes out, and the heater hoses are both hot, it could be a problem with the blend door under the dash or the HVAC control module.

I have a 1997 CK3500 chevy silverado ,extended cab,4x4 1 ton dually...when I have my foot on the brake while I turn the truck off and take the key out of the ignition the truck continues to run until I...


The only thing I can think of is you have a short between the brake wire going to the brakes and the ignition wire that is designated for run. Melted wires touching each other. This would be the only explianation. Because these two wires are only close to each other in the harness. And ofcourse these two wires run under the dash and in the engine compartment. Time to start splitting the harness. I would probbly start under the dash, get the hard part out of the way. Good luck.

92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear


Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.
