Clusters are sent out to repair facilities for exchange. They are built by Nippendenso and rebuilt at an authorized factory center. You can have this done by taking it to any Chevy Parts department for service

Pull the cluster out and send it in for repair, there is no at home fix, average cost around $200

    The reason is the circuit boards go bad in these, GM doesn't sell the parts to the public, only factory approved repair centers can buy the part.

Cruse control on 2008 Chevy Suburban stopped working. Changed the brake lamp switch (twice). Any suggestions? Where is the fuse located?


This is a computer controlled system (BCM) supply's power to switch .Voltage is supplied to the cruise control switch via the steering wheel control switch reference voltage circuit supplied by the BCM.
The following are the main components of the Cruise Control System:
• The accelerator pedal
• The stop lamp switch
• The body control module (BCM)
• The cruise control switches
• The engine control module (ECM)
• The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor
• The vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

Taking your vehicle to a quailfied repair shop would be your best option . Using a factory scan tool to view input data from switches and sensors is the only way to diagnose the cruise control on your vehicle . Just replacing parts does not cut it .

The body control module (BCM) monitors the signal circuit of the cruise control switches. The BCM relays the cruise control switch status to the engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The ECM uses the status of the cruise control switch to determine when to capture and maintain the vehicle speed. The ECM monitors the vehicle speed signal circuit in order to determine the desired vehicle speed. The ECM uses the throttle actuator control (TAC) motor in order to maintain the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC System, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description .

This is not a fuse problem !!!!!!!!!

You probably don't know what GMLAN serial data is ,do you ? It's GM 's version of C.A.N. How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN

2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 cruse stoped working but light is still on.


This is very complex , first thing is have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM , PCM !

Your best bet would be to take to the dealer !

1997 yukon i noticed that my speedometer and tac wasnt working and then when i went to pull outta my driveway i had to give it alot of gas just to pull out and it wouldnt hardly go up the hill


You might be looking at a bad Crankshaft position sensor and/or Vehicle Speed Sensor. If they went out at the same time though, I would suspect a wiring issue. Also GM/Chevy guages are notorious for failing. There could be quite a few things that would cause this. Try searching Yelp for a shop in your area that specializes in automotive electronics. If you prefer to tackle it yourself though, these sensors are both common failure items so it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace them and see if that solves the issue.

SOUNDS LIKE THE SWITCH & OR THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR, ARE THE PROBLEM WITH THE LOWER SPEEDS. SPEED 5 MAY HAVE ITS OWN FUSE, REFER TO OWNERS MANUAL FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE HEATER/AC FUSE.
