The issue you are having causing the cluster to go dead is called DIM basically it is not that hard to fix if you have time and most of all patience you will need to pull the cluster out and remove the back plastic housing it has 12 Phillips head screws holding that on be very careful the best way is to put the bezel face down on a towel so u don't scratch the clear plastic and do not move it now for the fun part you will need a precision soldering iron and you will need to go through about 150 soldering joints that's were your patience is critical if u don't want to do this yourself there are places that you can send it to on eBay that fix them for 200 bucks anyway if you have any questions regarding this vehicle I know the whole car like the back of my hand Regards Chris ...

SOURCE: s70 instrument cluster not working

Hi,

I had a similar problem. The speedometer didn't work. This is going to sound a little strange, but, at some point the battery died. When the new battery was put in, all of a sudden the speedometer worked again. Can't explain it, but it's true. Maybe just disconnecting and re-connecting the battery would help you, BUT BE CAREFUL about the radio. When the battery is disconnected (or dies) you have to put the radio code in again to use your radio. Make sure you have the 4-digit radio code before you disconnect the battery. If you enter it 3 times and fail, google what to do then.

The problem is your instrument cluster. Your type of vehicle is notorious for the instrument cluster failing. It will need replaced, or rebuilt.

All gauges stopped working on Friday but came back on after going through checking all lights etc. After turning right signal light on ( while driving) the gauges came on. All gauges went again today and...


this is a common issue. the internals of the instrument panel clusters become defective, and is a sealed unit - the entire cluster must be replaced. this must be performed at the dealer because they need to reprogram the mileage into the new cluster with the GM scantool. you should call your local dealer with your VIN#, some models are covered by a secret / extended / goodwill warranty. if the dealer says no, request the 1800 number to contact gm. good luck!

Instrument cluster on my 2005 S500 back illumination went out, although all the gauges are still working inclusive of the on board computer


remove the cluster(should be able to insert Small flat head screwdrivers into slots on plastic trim of cluster. Lower your steering wheel down and remove key. wait approx 30 seconds until cluster is off( means that the interior c.a.n. has went to sleep) unplug cluster and see if the bulbs you wish to replace are accessible from the rear cover. if not remove retaining screws and un clip rear cover from housing. You should have access to the back lighting bulbs
