You can see the three pins and a white peg next to the pin on the left. They work and look great. No speedometer, no gauges, no driver information center. I have an older 93 silverado and was looking into what the pressure should be at both the high and low psi ports. If the message center display is operational, but the odometer display is not, read on… First off, engage the emergency brake. Crack out the soldering iron and solder the joint securely.
On these the display is all one piece, and when one gage goes out it effects the whole thing. This simply pulls off, and requires no tools. They have you print out an odometer disclaimer and ask for mileage and engine hours and program it in. Add freon to system and see if the compressor lock up clutch starts up and the hose and accumulator starting to get cold with moisture appearing and it should be getting cold in the cab. Pretty simple at this point, just unclip at various points and the plastic front cover will come off as well as the back black cover.

I am going to keep hounding the company about replacing mine. As it was the weekend, I decided to continue driving home and take it in to the dealer on Monday. Check with the dealer about a recall! They pull off by pulling straight up. I went back out ant started my truck and all gages were working. Could it be a low battery and resultant volatge drop upon cranking the engine keeps the display from working? Many of those vehicles had problems that began with the instrument cluster, but eventually led to the engine refusing to start.
The technician read the service code s and determined my instrument panel needed to be replace. It all started at once. The electronic mirrors wont retract. Also, regarding the ignition switch as a possible source of the problem; which voltages should be checked when the problem occurs? I came online looking for help and found your post. Does anyone know how much this would cost out of warranty? You don't mention taking the battery cable loose. The other weird location might be behind the seat. If equipped with an automatictransmission, move the shift lever all the way down to last gear this will allow you room to remove the bezel.
This morning, first time ever, all gauges inop. I guess it is only 2005 models assembled before January 1 st , 2005. The Black Box is labled Fuse Relay Center, the diagram on the cap displays which Relay is the Fuel Pump relay. This may cause inaccurate readings, including the speedometer and. Need to do some voltage checks when the problem occurs. The one you want is under the hood on the driver side.
Tach works for awhile then stops altogether, will work when I drive the next time. I too have an intermittent instrument cluster. Step 4 When I tried to simply heat the resistors to reflow the factory solder the dumb 511 resistor came off so best just to solder over what is there. I'd like to know when it became available. I took it into the dealer and, luckily, it was covered under warranty because mine went out around 56k.
So be careful, diagnose the problem first. You guys know that all you have to do is tell the dealer you are having instrument panel issues and the dealer will replace the cluster free of charge, no mileage or time limit at least for 03-04 gm pickups, denalis, yukon etc. Step 5 I plugged mine in to make sure I soldered what needed to be done to get it working.

Annoying to put back on, too. Any help would be very much appreciated. While returning from vacation, the instrument panel did not work after starting the vehicle. In some Silverados there is another fuse in the instrument panel to the left of the steering wheel. I asume that you have scoured the dash and cab insides for it.
