there is a spot under the fuse pannel out under the hood that mice like to make nests and chew threw wires. its not a hard thing to pull the pannel. the cover comes off with a couple of snaps in between the motor and the fuse box.once you get it lifted out you then will need to unlatch the two on the pannel between the fender and the pannel. the pannel will flip up. if the truck sit alot there is were your problem probably is (you may want to check all the main and secondary fuses before you start)

In my case, simply removing and reseating the IPC/DIC fuse restored the gauges to full functionality.

The TCM is located on the fan shroud on the driver side of the truck. Its underneath a plastic cover but it's very easy to find. It is held on with two bolts at the top.

Recommend going back to your mechanic. Especially if you were not having problems prior. If you were, then perhaps the fuel filter was not the issue.

Most causes are: bad connection at battery post, corrosion inside connectors where they meet the battery posts. Bad ground connection where negative cable bolts to engine and frame. Bad alternator , take it to another auto parts store or alternator repair shop and have them test it, sort of like having a second doctor's opinion. I'd say the alternator is bad if it has a lot of miles /age on it.

No , it's not a trans module . Do you know how the starting system works ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Do you have an know how to use a volt meter ? Going here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams . You need to look an see what all is involved in the starting electrical circuit before guessing as to what the problem is .
Enter your vehicle info - year , make , model and engine size. Then under system click on engine , then under subsystem click starting .Click the search button then the blue link. Looking at the wiring diagram i see IGN E fuse 10amp , the park neutral postion switch , starter relay , IGN A fuse 40 amp . I do not see a trans module , but i do see the PCM -powertrain control module . The PCM has both trans an engine control modules in one box.
The PCM will energize the starter relay if there is no anti-theft system . Do you have a security light lit on the insturment cluster ?
No crank good starter how to troubleshoot any car Hyundai

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.

Heated seat control module is probably at fault . Have checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

I believe it has a PassKey type of module that requires the correct key inserted in the ignition key cylinder before it will start. It is extremely difficult to disable it, but you may be able to figure out a way with the wiring diagram for the truck (check a service manual or try Alldatadiy.com).

Sorry but with all the work you have done this is really not the kind of problem that will get solved over this keyboard, I speak from 35 years of expertise. What needs to be done is to have a GM dealer hook up a device called a flight recorder, it monitors the engine performance in real time and can record any problem s like the one you are having. You need to figure out if the fuel pressure is dropping off, or the ignition has a fault or the injector or injectors are causing this or an engine wiring harness issue or if the PCM is the real root cause and many more possibilities.. These tests are time consuming and are not cheap to have done, but it is what is needed if you are to get this fixed. OR you can sell or trade the truck.
