THere is a class action law suit and a special recall and replacement. You should have received a mailing from the class action attorney. I just had mine replaced at no charge by the dealership. My speedometer would hover at @ 15 MPH or so despite my speed. I might be able to find the letter from the law suit if you e-mail me I'll scan a copy for you. SeaFarmer@hotmail.com

I am getting false reading from my fuel gauge.
Battery indicator lights come on and give me a false reading that battery not charging.
The speed odometer went hay wire awhile back but corrected it self.

I had the fuel pump and sending unit replaced but now the problem is back in less than 2 months.
Took it to the Goodyear mechanic and they could not find the problem; advised me to take it to a Chevy Dealership. They said it might be the cluster.

The problem alternate between one or the other, never all at the same time.
Its a 2003 Avalanche. Can someone help.

    Thanks for the advice and help. I was out of the mileage range and the ownership years for the warrenty. I purchase a use one and the fuel gauge problem cleared up and works. I still have the battery not charging indicator light staying on. After I drive about 5 miles, it goes out but everything is working properly. I just have that annoying light to look at.

    Again Thanks

Hi Norton,

What has happened is your speedometer and tachometer drive motors are failing inside your silverado instrument cluster. I see this very often in GM trucks, to fix the problem you need to have your instrument cluster rebuilt.

Check out this article that talks more about it http://drspeedometer.com/chevy-silverado-instrument-clusters-why-they-quite-working

We've replaced the distributor cap and rotor in our 1985 Chevy C10 305 V8 and still have to fire TO the plugs. It won't start


This is a one piece distributor. It has the coil and pickup sensor all built in. Check and see if you have 12 volts on the large red wire that plugs into the cap while the key is on. (The other wire is for a tachometer if you have one). If you have power and there is no spark from your ignition wires, your pickup module is bad in the distributer. Very rarely have I seen a failed coil.

Sounds like a simple fuse problem. Try checking and replacing fuses inside the truck and under the hood as well. check them ALL, as some fuses say they control one thing, but end up controlling more than a few :)
