I have a 2003 GMC Yukon XL Denali that today all of the gauges went to zero and Odometer is out. The truck starts and drive Great.... What can cause this problem?

Only the gauges don't work ? All the warning lights come on when you turn on the key ? ABS , check engine, air bag etc... Have you had the vehicle to a repair shop to have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the instrument cluster ? There is a microprocessor inside the instrument cluster an can store DTC'S which have nothing to do with the check engine light . The gauges are controlled by that microprocessor based on information from the PCM ,sent on the class 2 serial data network .

Indicators and Warning Messages
Refer to Indicator/Warning Message Description and Operation .
Engine Coolant Temperature Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine coolant temperature as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine coolant temperature. The engine coolant temperature gage defaults to 75°C (160°F) or below when:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communication with the PCM.
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.
Fuel Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the fuel level as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the fuel level percent. The fuel gage defaults to empty if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.
When the fuel level is less than a pre-determined value, the low fuel indicator illuminates.
Reviewing the fuel system description will further explain how the system functions. Refer to:
• Fuel System Description in Engine Controls - 4.8L, 5.3L and 6.0L
• Fuel System Description in Engine Controls - 8.1L

There are also U codes , communication failure's DTC U1000 and U1255

Circuit Description
Modules connected to the class 2 serial data circuit monitor for serial data communications during normal vehicle operation. Operating information and commands are exchanged among the modules. When a module receives a message for a critical operating parameter, the module records the identification number of the module which sent the message for State of Health monitoring. A critical operating parameter is one which, when not received, requires that the module use a default value for that parameter. When a module does not associate an identification number with at least one critical parameter within about five seconds of beginning serial data communication, DTC U1000 or U1255 is set. When more than one critical parameter does not have an identification number associated with it, the DTC will only be reported once. The class 2 serial data line on this vehicle is a ring/star configuration. The following modules communicate on the class 2 serial data line:
• The body control module (BCM)
• The digital audio broadcast (DAB) module
• The digital radio reciever
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The electronic brake control module (EBCM)
• The front passenger door module (FPDM)
• The HVAC control module
• The HVAC control module-rear auxilliary
• The inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM)
• The instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• The memory seat module (MSM)
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
• The radio
• The radio amplifier
• The rear seat audio (RSA) controller
• The rear seat entertainment (RSE) assembly w/U42
• The rear wheel steering control module
• The remote playback device-CD player w/U1S
• The suspension control module
• The transfer case shift control module
• The transmission control module (TCM) w/allison transmission
• The theft deterrent control module
• The vehicle communication interface module (VCIM) w/UE1

Your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop .

I have a 2005 Ford Focus and the fuel light stays on. It is very dim, even when I shut the car off.

Principles of Operation
NOTE: When installing a new instrument cluster, the new instrument cluster must be configured. Refer to Section 418-01 .
The instrument cluster is a hybrid electronic cluster (HEC) which receives and outputs information using both hardwired circuitry and the controller area network (CAN) communication circuits.
It is very important to understand:
  • where the input originates from.
  • all the information necessary for a feature to operate.
  • which module(s) receive(s) the input or command message.
  • if the module that received the input controls the output of the feature, or if it sends a message over the CAN to another module.
  • which module controls the output of the feature.
The instrument cluster carries out a prove-out when the ignition switch is turned from the OFF to the RUN position to verify the integrity of the warning indicators. The charging system warning indicator, the low oil pressure warning indicator and the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illuminate when the key is turned to the ON position, and then turn off when the engine is started. The seat belt warning indicator proves-out for 60 seconds and then turns off, or turns off when the seat belt is fastened. The following indicators prove-out when the key is turned to the ON position:
  • door ajar warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • O/D OFF indicator (3 seconds)
  • air bag warning indicator (6 seconds)
  • brake warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • door ajar warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • shift up indicator (3 seconds)
  • low fuel warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • traction control indicator (3 seconds)
  • check fuel cap indicator (3 seconds)
  • passive anti-theft system (PATS) indicator (3 seconds)
Low Fuel Warning Indicator
The instrument cluster utilizes fuel level data supplied by the hardwired fuel pump module to control the low fuel warning indicator, which illuminates when the fuel drops to a pre-determined level.
Your best bet is to take this to the Ford dealer , unless you have Ford IDS - factory scan tool to diagnose this

Low fuel warning light where is it ?

Which vehicle??? Normally the low fuel warning light is on the instrument cluster, there should be an icon of a fuel bowser (gas pump) on the instrument panel, either on the speedo or the tacho face plate. When the fuel gets low, this icon will light up.

Replace check engine light bulb

Take out instrument panel completely. Remove all bulbs and hold the panel up to the sun while looking at the back of it. You will see where each warning/info bulb goes.

I have a 2007 gmc sierra. the fuel gauge reads low fuel or full,check engine light comes on for a day or so then goes off and the tire pressure monitor warning light stays on . The tire pressure is the...

Sure the I/C could be bad , but having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's should be the first thing done . An i don't mean going to a auto part's store to get them checked your instrument cluster , BCM , an someothers need checking as well an auto part stores can't check those . Qualified repair shop.

Low fuel warning light

Yes it does have a low fuel warning light. Mostly when you have 10 liters remaining in your tank.

Gas gage constantly says full when it's not!

Unfortunately this is most likely the fuel pump module, which includes the fuel level sensor also. This should be diagnosed more thoroughly with a scanner, a good scanner will be able to check instrument cluster separately to confirm the gage is working right,and check for trouble codes that may not light any warning lamps. Hope this helps. Rate me please.P.S. Dont use that fuel station any more.
