Question about Chevrolet 1500

1 Answer

1991 Chevy Cheyenne 4.3L V6 - 4X4 (light duty). This truck has one of the early but complicated dashes that show each engine and transmission response by increasing or decreasing a little mechanical white flag in each display gauge (Temp/Oil/Fuel/Amp/etc). The steering column shifter has one as well, off to the left and more towards the bottom of the display. No matter what gear I engage, the little mechanical/electrical flag will not move or show current gear engaged (automatic). Is this a simple wire/cable from the steering column selector to the gauge, or is it a more complex electronic pickup/sensor at the gear selector that is connected, or not, to the display gauge by electronic signals? Recommendations? Thx, Dave

The shift indicator on your vehicle is controlled by a small cable that wraps around the shifter yoke and is held on with a clip. If it does not move at all, there are two possible reasons for it. Either the cable has broken or the spring in the indicator end (in the instrument cluster) is broken. The spring is what makes it go one way, the cable makes it go the other way as it pulls against the spring.

The most likely howerver, is that the cable is broken.
If the cable has broken, I have had some luck fixing them by using an 18-22 Gauge wiring **** splicer. It all depends on exactly where the cable is broken. This will not work in all cases.

Install new dash 1993 chevy cheyenne


quickest way here is to visit a wreckers and get the whole dash (gauges and all). Watch shows of vehicle assembly lines and you see that a completed dash is put in with nothing else to do except connect the wiring harness to the dash wires.

First, the basics...

How many miles are on the vehicle? Is it the original trans?
With engine running, in park, and idling, did you check your transmission dipstick to see if the fluid is low?
Is the fluid on the dipstick darker colored and have a burnt smell?
(Good fluid should be pink to red, not brown)

Can a 94 chevy cheyenne transmission interchange with a 97 chevy silverado tranmission


Will it physically fit? yes. Will it be a direct replacement any everything hook right up and plug right in? If we are talking about an automatic then no. 1994's wiring was completely different than the 1997. Can it be made to work? possible, but I believe it would be more trouble trying to make it work than if the correct transmission were located and installed. If it is a cost issue where he has a good trans out of a 1994 he might see if a salvage yard will do some partial trading for the correct trans.
