    I would pull it back out and check your installation. wait a minute, by chance you didnt actually turn the dimmer down did you ??? If you have the switch on the left side its the wheel that goes up and down

I have found that when you are going to engauge 4x4 high, it is best to only be going about 3 miles an hour. Not faster, not stopped. It likes some movement to help it mesh. I've had perfect shifts since I started this. Hope it helps. Wade.

Just maybe it's mechanical.Internal to the steering column is an activator rod that manually makes the contact in the ignition switch.It's the cast piece that is molded to the activator rod that breaks.Two things you can do;tilt the steering wheel all the way up and try again to start(the cast piece spreads before it breaks,by tilting you gain a little extra throw on the switch).This will only work a couple times before complete failure of the casting.The other is to move the cover that's just below the tilt lever enough to get to the rod and move it with a pliers to start.If it's mechanical these things do work,I ran my truck with a vice grip for a couple weeks until I could get the parts for the repair,but replacing the broken part is smarter and won't scratch up your column like mine.

My obdominor does not work in my 2003 sierra


If the speedometer works, but the odometer does not, the problem is in the cluster. If the speedometer and odometer do not work, you should have a check engine light and the trouble code will probably be for the speed sensor in the transmission.

Odometer not working


Does your speedometer work? They run off of the same signal. If your speedo works, but not work odo, then there is a mechanical problem inside the instrument cluster. I have seen the gears strip inside the odometer.

Speedometer quit working and odometer stuck at 85,500


sounds like you have a bad cluster. The whole cluster needs replacing.cannot replace separately, cluster will need to be replaced at dealer tech will have to program the cluster.

My 1992 GMC Sierra started flashing the Brake Light and Service Engine Light on and off while I drive. The Speedometer also jumps around the same time the lights are flashing. I suspect a bad ground...


Actually the problem is the connector on the back of the instrument cluster. Early 90's GM were prone to bad connections. You will need to remove the cluster. On the back side is a large, rectangular connector with many brass connectors. There is yoour problem. CAREFULLY examine them. If they are corroded, CAREFULLY clean them with a pencil eraser. Remove all eraser bits whne you are done. Try not to bend them (unless they are already bent) and make sure all are even. When you replace the cluster, make sure it fits tight/snaps into the dash. Good Luck.
There is also a chance that the cluster circuit board has a bad connector or bad solder points. This is very difficult to repair yourself but I see on EBAY that there are places that do this type of work for about $100... Try cleaning it first.

Speedometer doest work how do i fix


You dont have to replace the cluster. Just replace the stepper motors. They are not difficult to do. I replace three of them and all the light bulbs in my 2004 gmc just yesterday ,, It took me three hrs from start to finish. The light bulbs are more difficult to replace than the stepper motors. Stepper motors are available on e bay for 6 bucks.

There was not a recall, but there was a class action settlement where GM agreed to extend the warranty on certain vehicles for this problem. Check www.gmspeedometerrecall.com to see if you qualify.

My speedometer is not lit on a 2000 gmc sierra 2500, what do I check.


If all other lights are working on cluster such as oil press., volt, temp... I would say bad cluster but if none are lit check fuses.
