You may be dealing with the bad-ground syndrome that was common back then. These grounds were commonly placed at various points on the firewall panel and may be corroded due to water infiltration. Repair is done by removing the connections (after removing the battery ground connection), cleaning the parts and terminals, covering everything with a light grease coating, and re-assembling. Good luck!

The speedometer stopped working, the oil pressure guage works intermittantly, the gas guage is on intermitantly also.


Take your truck to a GM dealer and have the Body Control Module checked. The bcm controls most electrical and display functions inside of your vehicle.

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!

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it
