Having problems with your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD ?

My instrument panel on my 2004 chevy silverado 1500 just blinked out. I have no readout on the speedometer,tachometer,oil guage,gas guage, or temp. guage. The truck starts fine, turn signals work,and the radio works. All the fuses and relayes appear to be working just fine. Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Check ignition fuse to dash lights.if all is good you could have pcm problems.
The stepping motors in the instrument cluster go bad. there is a recall for certain models, or do a search online for repair places. Most require you to send panel to them, they repair and send back Runs $200 or less. There is 1 on ebay (do a search for instrument cluster) who charges you $300, will send you new one, you send back yours and get $100 back, if you can't live without your car. If it isn't covered by recall, dealer will charge you $300.00

I have a 1994 nissan sentra 5 speed that won't start. When i put the key in the ignition to crank i get nothing, no clicking of the starter, no sound of the fuel pump priming itself or anything. I do have power to the lights, instrument panel and all flashers and turn signals work but no radio so far. I've checked the fuses all are fine in the engine bay and on the inside compartment. I think it might be a relay problem and would like to know if it is ''where are the right relays that i need to


I know this sounds ridiculous, but if you just bought this car with it not running and you have never owned a 5-speed, push the clutch in to start it. On most cars, the list and location of relays are on the inside of the fuse/relay cover. If it's ... 1994 Nissan Sentra 4-Door

I had a 2" ball for towing a boat installed on my 2009 Nissan Frontier. The boat dealer hooked the trailer up and the turn signals don't work on the trailer. He then tested it on his truck (GMC?) and the trailer turn signals worked fine. Went back to where we had to towing ball installed and that juice it getting to all necessary areas. Our truck turn signals had also stopped working for awhile but then starting working (something about a relay or delay). Do you have any idea what the probl


On older vehicles a tow harness could be wired directly to the vehicle wiring. On newer vehicles like yours, you need a module installed between the vehicle wiring and the trailer. Reason is that the original signal flasher (bi-metal type) has been r ... 2008 Nissan Frontier

Left turn signals don't work. It will only stay on, but it won't flash when I activate the left turn signal, yet the right side works just fine. I'm guessing it may be the relay, but where is the relay?


You need to replace one of the left side bulbs,front or rear.Without both bulbs working the circuit is not pulling enough amperage to make the flasher work. ... 1992 Chrysler Lebaron

Won't start Worked fine last night, didn't start this morning. Battery level fine. Lights, radio, dashboard indicator lights, all work fine. Blower fan for heater doesn't work, and turning the ignition gets me silence. 12.3 volts to starter, multimeter registers 0 on other solenoid terminal when key is turned into start position. Seems like the restart relay is the common element between fan and starter, as I look closely at chassis wiring diagram. Probably have no A/C, but can't tell with engin


A friend here solved it. It was a bad connection of the ground wire, with the paddle-shaped connector loose. He cleaned it a bit, slid it back on, and crimped it a little (not easy to do in that tight space). Solved both problems. ... 1993 Isuzu Trooper

If my dash lights, running lights and tail lights aren't working, and my headlights are dim and only getting 1 watt of power. The combo switch (headlights, running lights, turn signals) is working, the relay is clicking, but the running light wires are not getting power coming out out of the relay. Also the radio sometimes doesn't work and either turning the ignition on and off or just turning the key while the car was running would make it come back on. Is there any possibly way it could be

98 Dodge Dakota Sport -- Blinkers do not work, but Hazards do. They have a mind of their own... SOMETIMES they work for a few turns. Fuses and relays are fine. Believe it may be the turn signal switch, but wipers still work--is this possible? Have also been told it could be a broken wire, but believe they wouldn't work at all if this was the issue. Also heard a faulty computer signal could be the problem, but when I first started having the issue, a loud continuous clicking noise could be heard

Have 2000 VW Jetta, turning signal stops working intermittently. starts signal then stops blinking during turn or sometimes it works fine, sometimes won/t. all bulbs working & all other functions on the switch works, cruise control, high & low light beam. I'm thinking it's the flasher relay.


I pulled my switch out of the dash and sprayed it with contact cleaner. Air dry and put back in. 2 years without a problem. If you're not electrical savy, I'm pretty sure there was a recall on that, and it should be replaced for free. ... 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

I changed the radio in my 97 monte carlo ls by hard wiring it in. radio works but when I have it on my speed guage won't work nore does my cruz control. When its off they work fine however my anti theft lock light just turned on does that have anything to do with it and if so how to turn it off.


Yes it does you interuptted a power supply. You basically need to get another power B+ from a different source like the battery itself. Or a empty fuse slot. Becareful even with a common ground for cruise and speed gauge. ... 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

I accidentally pushed the panic button on my remote for my 1999 chrysler town and country. It now will not turn over. All of the guage lights and panel work and I notice that the alarm set light now shows on the instrument panel. I do not have a manual so I have no idea what may be wrong. The key turns in the ignition but the egine will not turn over. It was fine this morning. Could it be that I have somehow set the alarm and killed the ignition?
