    2004 Surburban -

    First the Speedometer stopped working

    Next the Tachometer quit

    Then the Temperature gauge quit

    Then the Voltage gauge quit.

    This all happened over the space of three months!

    I checked the fuses and they seem ok.

    Anyone got any idea what could cause this?

    With the little info you give it is hard to give you an answer. If I were you first I would check on recalls and tech bulletins here.


    Sounds like a problem in the dash cluster, wiring maybe? It could be something that has a tech buleten on so like I said check that first.

    One thing I would like to know is the dash digital or analog, you don’t mention that?

    The dash has gauges with needle arms for indicators so I assume it is analog. But with todays electronics - who knows :)

    Defective stepper motors?

    Apparently a common problem. $200 for a reconditioned cluster plus programming.

    my instrument panel

    2004 Suburban LT
    Got in the truck this morning and started driving down the street and noticed I had already hit 60 just as I pulled out of my drive way. I thought, wow! I had better slow down. Well, looks like my instruments are on there way out.
    Funny, I just received a letter in the mail this week from GM extending the warranty on my instrument panel. Say's if you spent any money repairing this part you can get a full refund. I am taking mine in today to have it fixed.

    Can you scan that and post it? I'd like to read that if at all possible.

    Well that just answered a question I was going to ask. My speedometer sticks or shows incorrect speed constantly. I thought it was just me.
