If both the odometer and message center are not working, the problem is likely to be a fuse both of these displays share the same fuse. In a collection circuit, voltages add up for all parts linked in the circuit, and currents coincide with all parts. If I turn on and off the vehicle, the speedometer will reset back 5 mph each time I do this until rest to 0mph at a stand still. It doesn't matter what angle the needle is pointed at this step but, to make it easy slide them on pointing roughly at the 12:00 position. This problem is unrelated to the stepper motor problem but is often seen in the same clusters. This sending unit is part of the larger fuel pump assembly. If you notice that your instrument cluster is not displaying information correctly, you may also want to check the wires connecting the cluster to the car's computer or the computer itself.
My son who just received his permit was driving with me in the passenger seat when we were pulled over by a policeman for doing 20 miles over the speed limit. Do not get it too hot for too long or you can damage the circuit board. The failure mileage was 118,700. The failure and current mileages were 100,000. Now pry upwards with a needle removal tool or even a fork, try to pry straight up and not at an angle, the needle will slide right off the motor shaft. If you're having this intermittent power failure you'll need a shop to repair the cluster, info here: Q.
The manufacturer was called and advised the contact that they were unable to assist with the repair cost. Probably what happened is the circuit board got too hot during the old solder removal causing damage to the board. Check out: for any recall notices. Also you can swap Instrument clusters to find out if the cluster is at fault This. I have replaced the battery, alternator and both tension pullies but no luck.
It worked before i swapped out the battery with a new one. The vehicle had not been repaired at the time of the complaint. After I sent a letter to the attorney general's office in mn, gm contacted me and for a second time denied helping correct this problem. Keep me posted and feel free to contact me if you need any additional assistance. I'm not liking what I'm hearing about this.
The ntsb has continued to allow thousands of vehicles to operate unsafely with this well known and documented defect by failing to force gm to recall these vehicles many of which were still being manufacture after the defect was discovered. The failure mileage was unknown. I have the same problem that all the gauges are out. Since these vehicles are picky about electrical supply issues, I'd check battery condition load test , battery cable connections and condition, check and clean all body grounds. Corrosion on the back of the cluster circuit board.
I purchased the vehicle from enterprise leasing company 1 year ago when it had 101,000 miles on it. What you want to do is cycle the ignition switch from off to that dead space. The truck has 55,000 miles right now. It worked on the first test and is still working. I have tried re-seating the instrument panel, but that did not do anything, Also, I have had a scantool hooked up to the truck while this was happeing with no issues showing, and data never cut to the scantool during the resets. Now is a good time to change any bulbs that are burnt out. If the vehicle is not driven for a few days either problem can drain the battery.
I'm not certain it would have caused a problem if I had broken or clipped it off, but I was careful and it's still there. It is so obvious they have a speedo cluster defect and expect us to pay for their incompetence!!!! This is the perfect time to replace them, you can get the correct bulbs along with the stepper motors here: they simply solder onto the board. If the sending unit checks out then you know the gas gauge is bad and needs rebuilt. This requires a trip to the dealer for mileage re-programming. I'm contacting you at the direction of the mn attorney generals office. The transmission temperature gauge suffers from the same tendency to fail as all the other gauges and again will be caused by a failing stepper motor. Experience in electronics de-soldering and soldering is highly suggested if you attempt this repair as damage to the circuit board is common with at home repairs.
A wiring diagram normally offers details concerning the family member position and setup of tools as well as terminals on the gadgets, to assist in structure or servicing the tool. Just check the internet about if there are recalls of these trucks will show this problem is widespread. It's a more structural oil pan than what is on older vehicles, you can't dent these ones. So any instrument cluster being sold now is a used unit or a rebuilt used unit. Replacement requires de-soldering of the faulty stepper motors for removal and soldering in of the new X27. Dim, Dark or Dead Display This issue is most often cause by a failing power supply circuit on the circuit board which requires either replacement components or a solder re-flow.
