    Default Dashboard gauge question for Suburban ???

    Hey guys, the oil pressure gauge is finicky on my 2005 Suburban as it is occasionally pinned and works erradictly either pinned or over 80 psi . Also the tach is sluggish at times and shows no rpms or low rpms. Someone told me the cluster is bad. What is this and is it something I can replace myself ? What might the parts and labor cost ? Thanks in advance for your replies.

    The stepper motors on the 2000s GM clusters are notorious for going bad. They can be replaced by you if you're very good with a soldering iron. Otherwise, leave it to one of the hundreds of companies that specialize in rebuilding these clusters.
