Well, considering that the fuel gauge is an electrical device, I would say that is most definitely an "electrical problem". The challenge is to locate where the elecrical problem originates from.

A ground circuit is defiately a possibility. The instrument cluster shares a common ground with many different components. The main ground for the IPC is at the rear of the right cylinder head. This ground is shared with the window motor circuits. Also there is a splice that is shared is is S246 and is located in the main instrument panel wiring harness approximately 37cm to the right from the steering column breakout.
-Or you could just have a bad instrument cluster. The printed circuits have been known to deterriorate and lose contact with certain components, including the fuel gauge.

Instrument cluster is going crazy


The instrument cluster is what holds your speedometer, fuel gauge, temp gauge, odometer, etc. You can get one from a scrap yard. Call around to local scrap yards and ask them if they have any cars that are the same model as your's. Some scrap yards will have already pulled parts and have them available for purchase.

Keep in mind that when you go to sell the vehicle, you need to inform the buyer of the situation with the cluster and that the mileage on the odometer does not reflect the actual miles.

2000 chev silverado 1500 instrument cluster goes crazy on all gauges, what's the solution?


Clusters are common to fail on the vehicles between 1999-2007, there is a special policy on them but I think a 2000 is out of warranty on that policy.
