I'm having issues with my gauges. Someone told me there was recall on them? Does anyone know anything. Thanks

Yeah, I received a recall in the mail, and yes my gauge cluster is messing up bad. I called a chevy dealer and they are refusing to fix it because I have over 70,000 miles on the truck. Personally I'm pretty pissed off that I have to pay out of pocket because GM put out a defective product and they conveniently waited 4 years to put out a recall for it.

I had the same problem. I did a lot of searching on the internet and found that this is a common problem. You can have it fixed at the dealer for about $800 or you can send it to some people that advertise on the internet and have it fixed for $350, then again you can search Ebay and purchase the mini stepper motor and do it yourself for $7.00 each. My tach and speedometer both went out. I replaced all the guages at one time for less than $50. There are sites that give you full details on how to do the job yourself. Just search for "silverado guages".

Have 04 chevy silverado with the battery light dimmly lit at all times, even when truck is off. Alternator and battery tested ok. When key is first turned on, battery light very bright, then goes to a dim "mode". ANY IDEAS WHAT THIS COULD BE???? HELP????

Yep, spend that kind of money on a vehicle, then
they fall apart, um, maybe we should ask congress
for a bail out plan to make them fix it...

Do you have a copy of that letter still? I have a truck w/ 74k miles on it and of course my letter states 70k. Conveniently, for GM the gauges lasted until after the 70k mark.

if you havent found out its probably your bulb behind the gauge face its really expensive to fix it so i suggest if you alternator and battery are good leave or get a new face or cluster also just to make sure get with a shop that has a computer and hook it up to you tuck to check completly

I also have a 04 Silverado with a 4.8 V8, After the engine was replaced at 84K miles I started noticing the hr meter would reset itself to 0 on occasion. The Odometer and trip Odometer seem to be unaffected. Was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what if anything you were able to find out on why it happens? When I mentioned this to the service rep at my local Chevrolet dealer he told me that he had never heard of this happening.

I have an 04 silverado, the guage cluster went whacko yesterday morning. I called the dealership (Allen Samuels Waco), talked to Tim Dowdle Service advisor. He told me as long as the truck had less than 70000 miles on it it would be fixed under warranty. I took the truck in today 3/31/09. They retrived some numbers from it, told me they would call when parts came in (possibly Fri.) for me to bring it in and it would take about 1-1/2 hrs to do.

if you dont wanna do the work yourself and you dont have alot of money go to your local tech school and have them do it. it will save you alot of money cause you only have to pay for the parts not labor.
