Thread: jumping guages

    Default jumping guages

    I am sure everyone with a Silverado 1500 (279000miles)is seeing your guages start jumping. Mine are to the left so that means a bad ground...I am in the process of tracking it down one ground at a time, I'll report back soon, Now if anyone knows where all of them are , feel free to share...interesting video I did on youtube, biglon74 "knock knock" very surorising what I found

    I'd agree since they're bouncing to the left (off) that it would be the common instrument cluster ground or the common power supply, rather than the individual stepper motors. Good luck & welcome to the club

    Yeah, the gauge clusters have a habit of crapping out My fuel level gauge went like 5,000 miles ago, I just use the trip computer in the meantime until I can get a new cluster.
