Could be a bad ground for the cluster, but I think it may be in the charging system controls, if I remember correctly they are controlled by the ECM on this truck.


huey1948, I am sorry to hear you are having this concern. You can certainly email us at socialmedia@gm.com if you would like to discuss this further. We look forward to hearing from you. Erica Tiffany GM Customer Care


Hello, This is a very common problem on the 03-07(classic) Silverados. The problem is your gauges are malfunctioning and the instrument cluster needs to be rebuilt. Check out www.drspeedometer.com for more info and pricing on a repair. www.drspeedometer.com
