DIC Issues

Recommended Posts

All,

 

I have a 2004 SS bone stock with 120K miles on it. But for some reason when i am driving my DIC will turn off. All other gauges work as they should. If i tap on the plastic cover a few times the DIC will show back up, then in a few minutes turn back off. I have taken it out and reseated the connection. But after a while it goes back to having the same issue. Has anybody ran into this. Is it the cluster? Or a connection feeding it? I found on ebay there are some shops that rebuild them and i know a few guys here have taken them apart and have changed LEDs. Just wondering the your guys thoughts.

Bad solder joints inside the cluster. I've fixed several GM clusters where the display goes out, haven't had to work on a Silverado one yet for that problem but the root cause is likely the same. If you're handy with electronics solder work, it's not difficult...otherwise, send it out to a cluster repair service.

Its definitely in the cluster. Not difficult to do but there is a risk to do more damage than good if you don't have a static free environment to work on the circuit board and are not careful.
