How to remove the gauge cluster from your Chevrolet or GM vehicle and
replace the faulty stepper motors in your speedometer, tachometer, gas
gauge, voltage meter, fuel gauge, temperature gauge and oil pressure gauge.
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.
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 white lithium 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
watching yall are awesome
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.

uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
A frame is the main structure of the chassis of a motor vehicle. All other
components fasten to it; a term for this design is body-on-frame
In 1920, other than a few cars based on motorcycles, every motor vehicle
had a frame. Since then, nearly all cars have shifted to unit-body
construction, while nearly all trucks and buses still use frames...
There are three main designs for frame rails. Their cross-sections include:
By far the most common, the C-rail has been used on nearly every type of
vehicle at one time or another. It is made by taking a flat piece of steel
(usually ranging in thickness from 1/8" to 3/16") and rolling both sides
over to form a c-shaped beam running the length of the vehicle.
Originally, boxed frames were made by welding two matching c-rails together
to form a rectangular tube. Modern techniques, however, use a process
similar to making c-rails in that a piece of steel is bent into four sides
and then welded where both ends meet.
In the 1960s, the boxed frames of conventional American cars were
spot-welded here and there down the seam; when turned into NASCAR "stock
car" racers, the box was continuously welded from end to end for extra
strength (as was that of the Land-Rover from its first series).
Hat frames resemble a "U" and may be either right-side-up or inverted with
the open area facing down. Not commonly used due to weakness and a
propensity to rust, however they can be found on 1936-1954 Chevrolet cars
and some Studebakers.
Abandoned for a while, the hat frame gained popularity again when companies
started welding it to the bottom of unibody cars, in effect creating a
While appearing at first glance as a simple hunk of metal, frames encounter
great amounts of stress and are built accordingly. The first issue
addressed is beam height, or the height of the vertical side of a frame.
The taller the frame, the better it is able to resist vertical flex when
force is applied to the top of the frame. This is the reason semi-trucks
have taller frame rails than other vehicles instead of just being thicker.
Another factor considered when engineering a frame is torsional resistance,
or the ability to resist twisting. This, and diamonding (one rail moving
backwards or forwards in relation to the other rail), are countered by
crossmembers. While hat-shaped crossmembers are the norm, these forces are
best countered with "K" or "X"-shaped cross members....
Mustang Cluster Repair Guide
Didn't really see any repair guides on youtube for replacing a motor on a
cluster gauge on a 2005 ford Mustang so I decided to record a
video of my own. I used tools I had available to me so most of my methods
where improvised. Please see my follow up video http://youtu.be/gf8GoaNNMtM
Also have Part 2 on how to calibrate your gauge needles.
