hi , thank for your patience

There is no new bulletins or recalls on this issue , unfortunately


If he Instrument cluster is defective , this the price of it $358 to replace Labor 0.6 hrs

If the ECM Engine Control module is also defective even though the repair order only mention cluster , the price is $373 and labor is 1.9 hrs

If it is the BCM, body control module it is $ 313 and labor 0.6 hrs

So Really if you add up everything it will not come close to $3000, you need to know more accurately what they are changing for you ,like detailed worksheet list with parts & prices , you can ask for that .
