I have a 2005 GMC Sierra that has had sudden total instrument panel failure, like a blown fuse or something. The dealer replaced the entire instrument panel under warranty many years ago and it's been fine until now. It runs and drives great, just don't know how much fuel I have or how fast I'm going. I checked a 10 amp fuse labeled 'Instruments' but it's OK. Do any of you know of anything else that might cause this? thanks

There is a ground wire under the hood that has an issue with the terminal breaking off the wire. That COULD be your problem. Do a search on U-Tube for more information.

GMC 2003 to 2005 pickups had a recall for the cluster panel. I had a 2005 and lost all of the gauges, including the speedometer a few years ago. Took it to get fixed and was told about the recall, but was told it had expired. Was going to cost $500 to get it replaced, so I came back home and did some research.

You can get a rebuilt cluster panel online for less than $100, but I'm not a mechanic so didn't have a clue to install it myself.

Was told to do a search on Criagslist and found a guy that replaced the cluster panel for around $200. Wound up trading in the truck, so never got around to having it fixed. I drove it a couple of years with an old cell phone affixed to the dash with a GPS app for a speedometer.

Thanks GTrigg. I like how you did the cell phone GPS because I planned on using my hand held Garmin for a speedometer if I can't fix it.
