I had this problem in my 81 GMC 1/2 ton pickup many years ago. It turned out to be the braided ground strap that connects from the back of the block to the firewall. I replaced it with a heavy duty braided copper strap and never had the problem again. I still drive this truck every day.

Gauges move when stopped


Sounds like it could have a weak alternator. In gear the idle is always lower than in park. A low voltage situation could cause the gagues to act up

I have a 2005 Trailblazer and the speedometer was working I stopped at a stoplight & it stopped working. Doesn't move at all.


Hi,

Pretty common issue with the 03-06 Trailblazers. What happens is the motor behind the gauge wears out over time, eventually more gauges will stop working or start acting crazy.

Check out this page for more details on Trailblazer instrument cluster repair.

I have a 96' Grand Cherokee Laredo . while im driving my gauges will shut off and my windows freeze up. and my doors will relock and everything will come back on. what could the problem be?


May sound crazy but have the alternator checked, when it fails it will shut off the gauges and make all of the electronic equipment act strange. I had a cherokee that did this to the gauges but that was b/c it was full of mud from my previous trip.
