Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

My insturment cluster stopped working all together. no gauges, no milage, nothing works on it. at first I could tap on the dash and it would work for a little while then stop. Now it doesn't work at all. And does the computer hold the info for the milage and the working hours if a new cluster is installed or does it need to be programed in?

I believe the computer is keeping that info for you. There is nothing in the cluster to program. Suspect you may just have a loose connector. See if you can reach up there and push on the connector. Have the key on and watch to see if it has any effect. If not, get back to us and maybe we can find a procedure to replace the cluster.

Temperature gauge shows car is running hot but it isnt what could be causing it


The gauge is bad . Replace insturment cluster maybe . Have it tested . Could be computer or data network problem . You need to know how it works . Depending on the make , model and year vehicle . Coolant temp. sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer, the PCM sends this information to the insturment cluster over a serial data network . Having the vehicle hooked up to diagnostic equipment is the way to find the problem . GM vehicles years 2003 to 2006 had insturment cluster problems .

Insturment cluster stops working All gauges plus speedometer & rpm gauge. Sometimes it starts back on its own on a restart. Sometimes it doesn't for several restarts then it does.


They had a recall on that. We have a 03 Chevy Silverado where the spedometer would either sit at zero or get stuck at the last speed. It sometimes takes a few starts to get it going. We did receive a recall notice for the instrument cluster to be replaced at no charge, but the clause was it had to be under 70k miles. We bought our truck at 72k and it is around 1k to replace so we just live with it. I dont get how the milage would have anything to do with it. Wish I could be of more help...its very frusterating.

Fuel gage is not working along with odometer checked for fuses did not find took apart dash found nothing there what should i check next. Tempature gage and oil pressure gage still work fuel gage is right...


when you pulled the top of the dash off did you check the cable connection to the insturment cluster. i had a similar problem where my gauges died individually including the spedo and tach. slapping the dash usually would cause the gauges to start working again, but that quit also and i had to tear the cluster out and check the conneciton. that fixed the problem.

Guages and insturment panel stopped working on a 1998 plymouth


In the event that you have not completely fixed this problem, I suggest the following: Do a google search for "98 voyager instrument cluster solder" and you will find an abundance of posts regarding the soldered joints on the main terminal connector on the back of your instrument cluster. If the behaviour is at all erratic and unpredictable, or hitting the dash makes the gauges come back to life, then you are about 99.9% sure it is the solder problem. It takes about 8 minutes to remove the instrument cluster (okay maybe 15), and about 2 minutes to remove the circuit board. By examining the solder joints of the main connector with a magnifying glass, you will probably see cracked or corroded solder on them. Briefly reheat each solder joint with a soldering iron to re-flow the solder. Your erratic gauge behaviour should now be history.
