G202... instrument panel ground. this ground is right by the diagnostic connector. please check this for integrity, tightness, and broken wires from the connector

Not to sound stupid, but where is that located?

diagnostic connector is under the driver's side at the bottom of the dash - 12 pin connector. Do you have an email address, and I'll send you a picture

Didn’t work!! Any other suggestions?

Hello. Yes. I'll have some more suggestions for you... checking wiring. It is possible there are two issues.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Ok, shoot

The engine coolant temp sender is a one wire sensor, located (typically) in one of the cylinder heads. On this truck, I can't tell you which side - I think driver's but that is a guess. So check the connector at the sensor, and the wire. I have seen this issue.

For the no speedo, etc, I'm looking for the location of the speed sensor that supplies that information

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

This truck has 2 coolant temp sensors - one for the computer (beside the thermostat housing) and one for the gauge (cylinder head - 1 wire) - the sensor is case grounded.
