August 16, 2008I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado that the gauge cluster is messed up. I was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem. It keeps going to the language slection and keeps scroling the three diffrent languages and i cant do anything to stop it *or* go to a difftent seltection. Any one ever heard of this.

August 16, 2008Must be a ghost in your truck controlling it. There should be a fix for this at the dealer. No, I''v never heard of this, I know there is a fix out there for the guage clusters in our year range I believe, but thats for the needles randomly going up and down. Not your problem.
August 18, 2008I have a 2003 2500hd and recieved some info in the mail about a class action settlement with gm about speedo/gauge cluster but not sure if its just junk mail *or* not.
August 18, 2008There has been so many cluster failures that the warranty for them has been extended to 70,000 miles. If you are over that you still may be able to get it fixed at no charge. Go to the dealer and have them check your trucks'' VIN # to see if it is part of the program.
I got mine replaced because of a noisy tach, so I don''t see why they wouldn''t replace yours for going haywire.
I also got the notice of the settlement in the mail. It says you will be reimbursed if you''ve paid to have the cluster repaired before the warranty was extended on them.
August 18, 2008Yes. I received a letter too! There is an extended warranty on the gauge clusters - get it in ASAP!
August 19, 2008I''v got an instrument cluster that I took out of my 2003 with about 2700 miles on it sitting in my shed. If you need it I''ll hook you up.
August 23, 2008GM sucks that is why they are getting sued... I went to three dealerships telling them that my cluster acts up yet no one wanted to fix it... GMPP told me that GM replaces it with no problem... like I have said in another post GM has terrible management and that is why you see so many dam Fords on the road... plus there design team sucks too... hah... sorry to beat up GM guys... good luck with the cluster hopefully no one else has to go through what I am.
