Buttons for cruise, info and cruise set stopped working. (left side of steering wheel. Can't get the cover off to check. Help. Was told the wires come loose and have to be soldered back.

Is the air bag symbol lit on the instrument cluster ? If so your problem is with the clock spring inside the steering column . I suggest you take this to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer > If you don't know about disabling the air bag system before messing with the cruise control buttons .You can accidentally deploy the air bag in the steering wheel ,an people have been killed messing with what they don't know about . I been fixing vehicles for over thirty years ,an I work for Chevy . I have not seen wires come loose .Those buttons receive voltage from the BCM - body control module , when you use those buttons they input to same BCM . Myself I would hook up tech 2 scan tool an check for those inputs to the BCM .

I have a 2004 chevy Silverado 2500 HD and I got a odometer error message in my instrument cluster. Is this from the instrument recall from way back? Front left window switch works intermittently also.

Disconnecting the battery isn't going to change anything . You have a hard fault . The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed signal circuit from the powertrain control module (PCM). The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. IPC- instrument panel cluster ! Is the odometer inoperative ?

Tachometer stopped working completely but all other gauges are fine. Tachometer would work off and on for a few days before completely not working. "Check engine light" stays on. All fuses are fine. This...

It's very UNLIKELY the jumpstart had anything to do with it, unless you accidentally connected the battery in 'reverse polarity', which causes the electrical system voltages to 'DROP' instantaneously to near zero volts and create 'current spiking' in all active circuits. Nevertheless, the microcomp in the instrument cluster which drives the TACH has protective curcuits. The only solutions are to eliminate any problems in the wiring between the ECM/PCM and the instrument cluster, and bench test the tach to determine if it's working properly. Process of elimination - if wiring is ok and the Tach is ok, then the problem is in the ECM/PCM.

My horn isnt working, and i cant locate where it is

You don't mention the year, but the location is probably forward of the left front wheel behind the bumper cover. Note that when working anywhere near the air bag impact sensors, steering column, or instrument panel it is recommended that you disable the system by disconnecting the neg. battery cable and wait 2 minutes before working on the car, to avoid accidental deployment of the air bag. Before all this though, have you checked under the hood (I mean bonnet!), fuse #6 in the power distribution center, and under the dash at the fuse block, fuse #7? If the horn isn't working check these 1st. Hope you fix the bloody thing! Let me know how it goes and if you need further help.
