    I have been receiving an odometer error message for quite some time now and I was looking for suggestions on where to look for a replacement digital cluster. Anyone know whether I will be able to retrieve the miles off the old one? It is for a 2004 Silverado LS EXT Cab 5.3L. Thanks

    gaugeguys.com - They're local for me and have a great reputation. They will rebuild your existing cluster. I believe miles are actually in the pcm so changing the cluster won't affect them.

    have the dash cluster repair people set the correct mileage. you want the PCM and the dash cluster to be the same !

    Only the cluster keeps the mileage PCM & BCM do not.

    I have been told the PCM records the mileage as well as the dash cluster. if they check this and find the mileage is different then this is under federal laws about mileage tampering.

    The purpose of this bulletin is to provide a reference guide to help identify which Season Odometer Programming Method to use after replacing the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC).

    The Three Season Odometer Programming Methods in use today are listed below. In Addition, this Reference Guide lists the Component where the Season Odometer Value is Stored.

    The Season Odometer Value may be Stored in the IPC, the Driver Information Center (DIC), or the Integrated Body Control Module (IBCM), also commonly called a Body Control Module (BCM).

    Season Odometer Programming Methods In Use Today,

    IPC Reprogramming and setup using the Service Programming System (SPS).

    Odometer setup at the Electronic Service Center (ESC) when using an exchange IPC/DIC.

    Tech2® -- The Tech2 is used to setup a replacement BCM, which includes loading the Odometer Value that is Displayed and Stored in the IPC. A replacement IPC will display the previously Stored Vehicle Odometer Value, communicated from the BCM, after cycling the ignition or driving the vehicle.

    with your info on this being stored in the BCM and dash cluster GM made this change back in 2003.

    In my 2000 it is in the PCM and dash cluster ,, from my reading of this. what ever the case it is stored in 2 different places.

    .....On the GM FullSize Trucks, the IPC Stores the Mileage, the BCM will"Keep Record"of the Current Mileage, and
    the BCM reads the IPC.

    The BCM Updates itself. if your Cluster has 128K miles....The BCM sees 128K miles.

    Plug in a Cluster with 52K miles, Fire it up, and Drive around, and the BCM now reads....52K miles.
