GM Stepper Motor Replacement and Instrument Panel Disassembly
Most later model GM vehicles had recalls with the stepper motors in the
instrument clusters. Some models were repaired by GM through a class
action law suit while others were left fitting the bill themselves. This
video will be helpful for anyone replacing these and saving money. Most
places will charge between 150 and 300 bucks when the stepper motors are
only about $5 each. The entire process start to finish (provided you have
all the tools) will take about an hour...ish.

Instrument Panel Cluster Malfunction
As you can see my 2004 GMC truck speedometer has malfunction. The dealer
said it will cost between $400 and $600 dollars to replace. I look on the
internet and found a special bulletin from GMC. I called GMC and they said
it will only cost $120 for the labor to replace. The special bulletin will
cover the part cost. I hope this can help you. Go to

Buick Century Odometer
Fixed a non-working odometer gear selection indicator. Problem is 4
resistors on the back of the instrument panel cluster (ipc) that come
dislodged over time due to a manufacturing defect.
Odometer/Gear Shifter (PRNDL) Display FIX - GMC/Chevy
Common problem from 1999 - 2002 GMC/Chevy Trucks with the odometer/gear
shift all in one display. Some were not completely soldered all the way
from factory causing an intermittent flicker and eventually nothing on the
display. In my case, it was just a loose / dirty connection at the top of
the cluster. The circuit board was also really dirty so I cleaned it as
best as I could. That combined with a shot of dielectric grease to the pin
connector fixed my problem. The truck was flooded at the end because i was
fooling with the ignition a lot without running the engine. Thanks for
