Now, with the vehicle parked, with the key on, it still shows that I'm going 70 mph. Its still the same problem they had all those years ago. 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. They know they have an electronic defect, maybe not a safety problem, maybe so. Will keep posted on how they handle this situation.
The truck has 55,000 miles right now. Dodge for life and now I know why!!! At other times, indicates speeds less than actual or freezes altogether. Chevy changed our onstar to digital. I took the truck when it first started happening around 100000 miles and they said it wasn't covered. Back in 2009 I had to pay for the replacement of the instrument cluster. We've called multiple dealerships and not one of them will cover it. I went home and researched that there is a recall on this vehicle for the dash cluster not working properly.
Of course it was covered. I purchased the vehicle from enterprise leasing company 1 year ago when it had 101,000 miles on it. Turned off, disconnected battery, tore the dash apart and major wire burn smell coming from the instrument panel. A recall is a recall no matter the mileage. So far I have not had a speeding ticket, but with the gauges not working who knows how long. They refused to correct the defect on my vehicle.
I have replaced the battery, alternator and both tension pullies but no luck. Do not get fingerprints on the gauge face. As you can see by my terrible job it does not need to be pretty to work. The dealer stated the cluster is bad and needs replacing. I Asked what about my truck is it covered to, the reply was how much milage do you have about 75,000.
I used to drive a dodge but got a great deal on the truck so i bought it and now i know why I will never buy another chevy in my life. The failure mileage was unknown. It worked on the first test and is still working. Then as I would drive they would come back on. Then it got worse and wouldn't work for 2-3 days at a time. The problem was caused by poor soldering of the internal components.
Gm acknowledges that this is a known problem and has a policy in place to repair at no cost if vehicle is 7 years old or less and less than 70,000 miles. It was, doubtless, the pin you said, though I soldered the next pin, too. The manufacturer was not contacted. We bought the truck brand new so we should of been informed of the problem. At 60k I tried to get the item covered but they were not helpful.
Annoying to put back on, too. I am considering the speedo repair site mentioned by other members. Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not myself. Then one day on start-up it just popped to dead empty where it now stays. So if anyone else has this problem get it in to the dealer before the 6 of February or you will be paying out of pocket.
The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic and was being serviced when the complaint was filed. My oil pressure is also on the fritz. 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. Step 3 The only thing holding the circuit board at this point are the gauge needles. I now get to figure out how to fix my ride control. If the message center display is operational, but the odometer display is not, read on… First off, engage the emergency brake. The vehicle has only 34,600 miles on it, and gm says they will repair it free, up to 70,000 miles, which is fine, but they gm won't recall these trucks because its not a safety matter.
