Likely a bad ground. Carefully check the ground cable from the body to chassis (usually from the firewall to the engine or frame - might be a braided cable or solid wire). Check for a smaller ground wire off the negative battery post to the body (usually inner-fender) that is in addition to the heavy ground that goes to the engine. Check ground wires from the instrument panel to the chassis. If all these are good, then check for loose-fitting connectors behind the instrument cluster.

Why does my gauge cluster stop working?


they have an issue with the instrument panel connectors, my 05 2500 hd has an intermittent problem where it goes dead and if you smack the dash or hit a bump driving it will reset. It got much better when I put an extra twist in the cable before connecting it. I also got a replacement cluster due to bad lights etc and it does the same as the old one,I think it's a loose pin, probably ground but haven't gotten around to fixing it. my 95 c 1500 did the same

I hit a bump and all dash went out speedometer gas rpm temp but boost gauge still works. what could that be?


Sounds like it could be a grounding issue. Check for loose wiring that is bolted directly to the frame, body, or firewall components. Is the light on your boost gauge working? Or is your gauge just reading vacuum/boost without the light?

Gauges in my 1998 plymouth neon stopped working when i hit a bump


Sounds like an intermittent loss of power to the instrument cluster to me. Remove the instrument cluster and inspect the electrical connectors on the back of the cluster.

Dash lights, rpm's/speedometer/fuel gauge etc. go out. They turn back on stay on most of the time but will go out sometimes by themselves or when I hit a bump. How do I fix the connection?


Sounds like an intermittent Earth connection. Check for a loose Earth wire bolt either behind the Dash or near the Fuse Panel.

My check engine light comes on and my speedometer and odometer stop working until I hit a bump and then they start working


Hi, I can tell you that I was having a simular problem with my 2001 Chevy Silverado. The check engine light would come on and I lost both the speedometer and odometer. I also lost gas gauge, and oil pressure gauge.I would hit a bump and they would start working, but light would stay on. I bought the obd-2 meter to read codes and erase them so the light went off. This continued for 8 months. Finally, I started moving wires around under dash when gauges stopped and they would come on and off? Took me right to the circuit board on the ignition switch. I mean I tried everything possable to solve this and told a G.M. mechanic. He said I was right that it would be the switch and that most of you're wires that go to gauges and speedometer come from the ignition switch. I changed it and it has been fine since. You might try what I did see if you can do this while driving, i don't no, but if so be carful on the road. You may need to take it in also.There is something loose a ground wire or hot doing this. I would bet it is in the ignition switch. Best of luck,
