Question about 2005 Chevrolet SSR
I took my instrument cluster on my 2005 chevy ssr out to replace the speedometer face to a different color and to replace the needles on all the gauges. what i'm having a problem with is how do I get the needles back to "0" so everything will read right when i'm driving down the road. if anyone knows what I need to do to make the gauges read right after I put the instrument cluster back in my truck I sure would appreciate the help with this problem. I know at some point you're suppose to reset the needles back to where they were before you took it out but i'm not sure when that is.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your odometer is working and your speedo needle doesnt indicate correctly then your problem is the stepper motor in the cluster. I have repaired a lot of instrument clusters....cost is 105.00

That Cluster will work But, You will have to get an Installation kit if you want the Tach to work. Everything else will hook up the Same. You have a Distribution Box (Fuse Box) Under the Hood on the Drivers Side, There is a Fuse in it for the Speedo. Inside the Cover to the Box is the Fuse Diagram or in the Back of the Owners Manual.

I would say its your Ignition switch or the fuse for tranny is blown or the tranny is unplugged.My truck had a problem where it was stuck in third gear, the tach never moved,the gear indicator light went out.I left it at the tranny shop all day and nobody could find the problem.All you need to do is check your fuses with a test light.I looked at all my fuses and they were all good but when I used a test I found that some fuses didnt have power supplied to them from the ignition switch.Your fuses need power on both sides to complete that circiut.So I would say go get a test light because they are cheap and check your fuses before you go right back to the parts store for that ignition switch.Good Luck

Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

Testimonial: "thought probably that was it but better off replacing whole unit .i was for for gauge proplem thanks. "
The problem is in the connection of the cables in the ignition switch. uncover the lower or bottom cover of the ignition switch and get a flat screw driver and a hummer and hit it exactly where the cables connect to the ignition switch cylinder or mechanism. if that doesn't work then you have to change eather harness or ignition switch mechanism.
