2004 Silverado Gas Gauge

3 posts in this topic

Filled my truck a couple days ago when it was about -15 out. Next morning, I noticed the gas gauge went well above the full position, probably about 1/4 revolution past full. When I shut off the truck it reset back to somewhere in the 3/4 full range. Over the course of the last few days it has gradully been working its way around the dial. Now its almost reading at the E when its running and it is resetting to a point above the F. It seems to me that its probably the gauge that is B/O, but I was wondering if you folks have any experience or suggestions. Anyone know if there is a TSB on this? How difficult is it to remove the instrument cluster and replace the gauge?

Sounds like the cluster may be going bad. They are simple to remove....not cheap to have repaired. There is a place in NE Mpls that does them for 200 with a one day turn around if thats what it turns out to be.

How many miles are on it? There is an issue with the clusters on the 04's that can be taken care of under a special warranty if it falls into a certain VIN range. The warranty goes up to 70K, but if you're not far out of it they may do a goodwill repair. If you're still around or before the 70K range, you'd have to call a dealer to see if you qualify.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
