99 silverado, my gauges go crazy randomly sometimes while driving and sometimes sitting still. They jump around
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
All the gauges
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 7 months ago

these cluster have had issues with the stepper motors inside the cluster causing this issue

if its just the gauges the issue is usually the cluster and replacing the cluster or sending it out for repairs will usually fix this issue

if the complete cluster went out then it would be a power or ground issue but if its just the gauges 99 % of the time the cluster itself is the issue i am sorry to say

You cannot replace the stepper motors in the 99 nbs, they aren't like the ones in the 03 otherwise I'd already of changed them
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It's like everything resets and the gauges jump when it comes back on
