03 Silverado speedometer stuck (case review)
Here is a review of a recent repair.
The speedometer in this 2003 Chevy Silverado was stuck all the way to the right. I did a quick test (which didn't require any special tools) to determine that the stepper motor was stuck, then took a gamble and banged in a new stepper motor.
Like I said in the video, as long as there isn't a DIY way to test the cluster, the motor replacement is ALWAYS a gamble!
Also, since the test works with the Trailblazers and Silverados, it should work on many GM trucks/SUVs from the same era.
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.

E39 540i Instrument cluster pixels fixed
First test run before final reassembly, all pixels are finally back. Materials used: enameled copper magnet wire 38 gauge, soldered to the PCB and glued with Wire Glue (carbon based) to the panel. A thin layer of epoxy to seal the glued wires. Procedure is as follows:
1. Remove the OEM cable, keep it for reference.
2. Clean both the panel and the board; credit card works well.
3. Cut enough wires to length, about 180 wires roughly 1" long, the shorter the better.
4. Expose copper from enamel on both ends of all wires (I used solder bath for that).
5. Set your panel so it won't move, use a strip of double-sided sticky tape to hold your wires when you gluing them until the glue is dry.
6. Glue all wires, make sure there are no shorts.
7. Solder all to the board and test.
8. Apply a thin layer of epoxy over the glued wires to seal them permanently.
9. Modify the supporting white plastic piece so that it doesn't push on the PCB board where the wires are now soldered. Basically the areas where the rubber goes need to be ground off.
10. Assemble and enjoy!
