First, check your fuses. One might be blown. If your fuel & temperature gauges sit next to each other, like on an '03 Silverado, it could be a printed circuit failure. If it's the printed circuit you'll most likely need to replace the cluster. The clusters are rebuildable. Not a hard job. Cost for the cluster is about $300.00 but you'll have to return the old one. There'll be a core charge. HTH. -Jim

You might be able to buy another cluster on eBay but the mileage may be off.

Hello, this problem is due to a failing stepper motor. The stepper motor is the motor behind the gauge that controls the movement of the needle. When a stepper motor begins to go out it will cause the gauge needle to stick, skip around, stay at zero or max out on the gauge. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the stepper motor with a new one. While replacing one motor it is best to go ahead and replace them all as the others will go out in time as well. Your cluster will have one motor for each gauge.Search Google for DrSpeedometer for more information and how to get your cluster fixed.
