Odometer and other digital was not showing up, I took it out

Customer Question

odometer and other digital was not showing up, I took it out to exam any lose connections. When i would tap it it would come on. so i figure there is a bad connection some where. Problem is, in handling I messed the speedometer needle up as well as the tack. Is my only fix a replacement
JA: What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 2007 chevy tahoe
JA: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: just took it out and while doing so the lights came on. So I took it completely out and took covers off. I can't get to back because of the needles. so I did not attempt to. But I did mess the needles for speed and rpm. Now rpm does not move correctly and not sure if speed is correct either
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: odemeter, trip,etc
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

yes i am sorry to say the odds are the stepper motors were damaged when you were working on the cluster

it will need a new cluster assembly or send out your old one to united radio in NewYork and have them repair it for you
