2004 Chevy Silverado Instrument panel gauges

  • V8
  • 4WD
  • 53,000 MILES
For seveal months the gauges in my instrument panel cluster have not been functioning properly, Sometimes they work, sometimes they freeze in place, sometimes they don't read at all, and sometimes they work but not accurately, there seems to be no rhyme or reason as which ones will work and when. So far it involves the tach, the speedometer, the oil pressure and voltage, the engine temp and fuel tank guages do not seem to be effected. Is this fuse, a relay or wiring? Sometimes I can get them to reset and work properly by restart my truck.
Do you
have the same problem?

There is a special policy for this, Some customers of 2003-2004 model year Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, and Tahoe; and GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles have reported that one or more of the instrument panel (IP) cluster gauges stick, flutter, or become inoperative. This may cause inaccurate readings, including the speedometer and fuel gauge.
