Thread: Another newbie

  1. #1

    Default Another newbie

    Hello Everyone! My name is Kevin and I live in SoCal. I finally decided to buy a truck, a 1999 GMC 1500 SLT. It's a nice truck,Green and Silver with Escalade chrome wheels. But it has a problem with the gauges, as in none of them work. The tach and speedo are good, but that's all. The gear indicator and the odometer only are visible when first turning the key on. After it starts, they go blank. Also, the battery light in the message center is on constantly. But the battery is getting 14.6 at idle, at the battery. Am I due for a cluster change? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
