    Try searching for "instrument cluster" or "stepper motor". Both have good info. There was a TSB and GM sued Delphi in bankruptcy court and received a settlement for faulty stepper motors. Your vehicle may not qualify depending on your mileage.

    I experienced the same issue. I found the following site helpful:

    They had a recall on the dash cluster which they would fix it if it had under 90,000 miles on it i believe

    Unhappy Speedometer bad

    I have the same problem with my 2005 silverado. No the video for TruckU did not work for me either. I found out about the recall after I had 94 K. Needless to say Chevy said Sorry Charlie, no speedometer for you. This coupled with a few other problems, electrical in nature, has me wondering if I will continue to purchase GM products in the future. Always have been a GM type person but ........
