Have all the gauges stopped? Usually a failure involves one or the other. There was I/P issues in earlier years, and a campaign that covered them up to 70,000 miles. Ideally, it requires a scan tool that can communicate with the IPC, and command special functions to test the gauges and displays. Not sure on the dealer only stipulation. Obviously there is the odometer that has to be programmed into a replacement. I work at a dealer, and when we obtain an IPC through the remanufacturer, we provide them with the odometer, engine hours, and VIN #. I don't know how the outside world obtains a replacement part, but never been told it was a dealer only repair.
