    Yes the fuses are all good. would you know if they make an after market panel, the dealer wants over $300, for a new one

  • fpnj102 Aug 22, 2008

    Yes... the dealer told me about the "recall", but it only the panel if you have under 70,000 miles. Could someone please tell me why, if the "recall" is on a specific part....why would it matter how many miles you have put on?

There has been a recall for some specific suv's made by general motors (chevy, gmc, cadillac, etc.). They involve the tachometer (speed, oil, gas gauges) that are faulty.
go here for information about the recall.

I'm going to assume you checked the fuses, and say that the display panel will have to be replaced. On these the display is all one piece, and when one gage goes out it effects the whole thing. Some of these display panels had in line fuses on the inside circuitry, so you may be able to pull the display and change the fuse. Others were built as a sealed unit and cannot be taken apart.

    It doesn't matter how many miles are on it, the defect can show itself at any time. That is just a dealer way of getting out of having to replace the panel on second and third owner situations. Most cars are at least on their second owner by 70,000. I don't know if you've figured this out yet or not, but dealers are expensive, stingy, and just downright cheapasses when it comes to fixing a problem.

Check the wire harness on the transfer case to make sure it's still plugged in. Check the selector switch in the dash. Check the hub sensor wire harnesses on the front wheels.
Check for error codes through OBD-II connector under the dash.
Good luck.

I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 2001. the driver


Usually this problem is solved by opening the driver's door & looking for a broken wire. This wire usually breaks at the flex point of the harness between the door & frame. Carefully slice outer coating revealing hidden wires. The broken one is the culprit. Hope this helps. Good luck!

All warning lights flashing on dash of chevy trailblazer 2003. Runs fine all gagues go dark like truck is turned off but runs fine


All warning lights flashing on dash of my 2002 chevy trailblazer. Runs fine all gagues go dark and turn back on every now and then. Also the gagues all go to the right or stick half way like I am idling at 5000 and going at a speed of 60mph when I am sitting still. I am thinking it has something to do with my computer because the rest of the truck is working just fine.

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban


You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.

More than likely your looking at the towing package for wiring a hitch to your vehicle for towing a trailer. Probably can use some of that, but I'm sure if you stopped in at a GM dealer and explained what your trying to do, they'd have someone look & confirm for you that it's o.k. or not to use that harness, without a big service charge.
