All of the instruments went dead while I was driving my 2008…

Customer Question
All of the instruments...

All of the instruments went dead while I was driving my 2008 Chevy 2500HD and the truck was cutting off and on while driving home?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '08 Chevy?

Duramax Z-71, 4X4 6.6 desial

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Was going to look at the fuses then I saw something online about the instrument cluster going bad due to saunter joints going bad

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual yet?

I looked at it to find out what fuses i need to look at first. got in it this morning and turned the key and nothing no clicking just dead

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am a little bit mechanically inclined but i dont know much about diesel engines
