    Default 03 Yukon XL instrument cluster hiccup

    Just purchased this Yukon XL a few days ago. Noticed that the airbag light, ABS, battery light all went on. The message board read check 4wheel drive and all the instrument panels went dead. The odometer and tach still worked. After a few minutes, I heard a ding and everything started working again. Then happened again later in the day, this time as I was parking at a store. When I came back out 15 minutes later, everything worked fine.

    Any ideas what to check?

    I would pull the cluster out and check the connections at the back. I have had to use a pick and bend the prongs out to make better contact.

    It happened again, this time I was close enough to a computer hook up to see if any error codes registered. It came up as U1096 - Lost communication with driver information and displays (IPC) system. I have not checked behind the dash yet as it just got above 0 degrees again and I like the use of my fingers!
