    Hi everyone. I just joined the site after finding it while researching a problem with the instrument cluster on my 2004 Tahoe. Around 50K miles the guages started acting funny - which I understand is a fairly common issue. I pulled the cluster out and replaced all 6 stepper motors and in the process realized I've got 4 bulbs that are burned out. Rather than buy an entirely new cluster, I'm tring to identify the stock bulbs and find somewhere I can purchase to solder in myself.

    Love the site, really appreciate any help anyone can provide. Thanks!

    Thanks to everyone for the welcome messages!

    I called the dealership and made an appointment for tomorrow... they said it should be covered as long as it's under 70K miles (currently 58,500) as long as the VIN checks out.

    Now I'm crossing my fingers that the work I already did to replace the bad stepper motors didn't void the warranty!!!
