SOURCE: instrument cluster inoperative, transmission shifting problems

These vans have had issues with the PIN connections to the instrument clusters. With time the solder on the main PIN connection will begin to fail. The good news this may be repaired at home. First you'll need to remove the instruments. To do so remove the dash components from around the instruments then the (4) screws) that hold the instruments in place. Carefully detach the wire connection from the back of it; take to a well lit area. Look for a PIN with a failed solder joint (this will appear as a slight black or grey circle. If found apply heat and let solder begin to flow; the allow to cool and reassemble. If you look at my history you'll see I've helped others with this issue. The attached link may help: http://dodgeforum.com/forum/dodge-caravan/197192-99-grand-caravan-intermittent-dead-dashboard.html

As for the transmission I expect this a seperate issue, possibly the BCM but I'd like to review further.
Please let me know if this assisted you,
Tom

SOURCE: instrument cluster inoperative, transmission shifting problems

The cluster problem is a common and will not give you a fault code! Drive your van to Autozone and have them connect their free scan tool to download any fault codes. Transmission shift problems are often linked to the Transmission solenoid which displays a fault code. They are easy to replace (3 screws) and disconnect the sensor connector... the key is to be clean and use a safety razor blade to remove all the old gasket off. Some gasket material will undoubtedly fall into the numerous channels inside the lower housing. I used interconnecting straws and sucked them all clean one at a time...quickly putting my finger over the end the straw each time so as not to allow them to fall or suck the fluid into my mouth! Go slow! Pre-cleaning the entire area with Simple Green and an old tooth brush before removal really made the job much, much cleaner. Keep a rag handy just off the solenoid to allow the gasket residue and transmission fluid to fall onto from the straws.

Instrument cluster illuminates intermittently on 1990 eldorado


If this is the analog intrument cluster and the entire instrument cluster is intermittently losing illumination, remove the instrument cluster light fuse and replace it with a new fuse. It is remotely possible that the actual fuse holder wires have broken due to age and would need to be soldered back together.
If this is the digital instrument cluster and the entire display is going dead, it could be anything from the wiring harness to the BCM. If it is the digital instrument cluster, I can really only recommend taking it to a reputable shop or Cadillac dealer to service.

Is there power (B+) an ground's for instrument cluster ? When you turn the key to the run position ( not start ) do the gauges do the sweep test ?
Did you perform the Instrument Cluster Diagnostic System Check?

Does the instrument cluster perform the displays test?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3

Turn the ignition OFF.
Disconnect the IPC.
Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF.
Connect a test lamp between the ignition 1 voltage circuit and a good ground.
Does the test lamp illuminate?

Perform Diagnostic System Check - Instrument Cluster , Diagnostic System Check - Driver Information Systems or Diagnostic System Check - Audible Warnings before using the Symptom Tables in order to verify that all of the following are true:
• There are no DTCs set.
• The control modules can communicate via the serial data link.
Review the system operation in order to familiarize yourself with the system functions. Refer to the following:
• Instrument Cluster Description and Operation
• Indicator/Warning Message Description and Operation
• Driver Information Center (DIC) Description and Operation

If you don't know about serial data communication an DTC'S I strongly suggest you take your vehicle to a Chevy dealer or an ASE certified repair shop .

2003 Silverado 4.8 V8. Speedometer and tachometer, as soon as underway, read past maximum. When engine is shut off guages do not return to "0"


Hi Norton,

What has happened is your speedometer and tachometer drive motors are failing inside your silverado instrument cluster. I see this very often in GM trucks, to fix the problem you need to have your instrument cluster rebuilt.

Check out this article that talks more about it http://drspeedometer.com/chevy-silverado-instrument-clusters-why-they-quite-working

Thanks,

All instrument cluster guages inop (speedometer, odometer, fuel, temp) may click on intermittently but will not work for long (ex. clicked on last night after driving about 30 miles, worked for 4 miles and...


sounds like the instrument cluster is failing or you have a loose wire issue. The dash will need be opened up to inspect the connector for proper voltage.
Modulemaster.com can rebuild the cluster but the car will out of service for a week or 2. This is just an option over the high price the dealer will want.
