Gauge Cluster quit working today..

I got off work today and when I started my car my gauge cluster wasn't working,I turned the car off let it set for a few seconds and still nothing, so on my way home I hit the dealership thinking maybe they could look at it for a second before they closed. I'm thinking fuse all the way there "quick fix" no problem..well they didn't have time to look at it today but I could take it in tomorrow morning at 7:30am. Well that would be ok if I couldn't fix it myself.

As soon as I got home i pulled the cover off the fuse side on the dash,found the right fuse,pulled it and all was fine as soon as I put it back in I heard the system making some noise, got in the car fired her back up and all was fine not sure what happened but I am glad I don't have to go to the dealership tomorrow morning.

Anybody else have a problem like this???

Haven't had a problem like that, but if it's electrical, the first thing I always do is a good reset via fuses or battery disconnect. Easy enough to do on the roadside if you have to. (You do carry a flashlight and a few extra tools, right?) If that doesn't fix it, then I go banging on the dealer's door.

I had this happen once. Started it and nothing moved. I popped up the cluster, disconnected the harness and connected it again and it worked fine. Must be something electrical.

Happened to me last summer. The dealer had it all day to fix it. When I picked it up, the guy at the counter said something about ltft looking ok but they had to reset the computer. Glad I put my stock tune back in first. I think they reset the flash counter on the ECM.

Yeah I need to keep some tools in the car, I just haven't had the car very long (well I haven't driven it a whole lot with the weather). I have tools in my other cars,so this has been on my todo list..

I still find it strange pulling the fuse out and putting it back in fixed it, it would have made more sense if the fuse was blown..

He's not talking about the main gauges, the ones under the stereo. Just the oil and tranny stuff.

ToolFan66,

I apologize that the dealership couldn't look at your vehicle the day that you had taken your Camaro into them. However, I am happy to read that you were able to find the correct fuse and get the problem resolved.
In the future, if you have issues with your vehicle, please contact me.

Sincerely,
Michelle P., Chevrolet Customer Service (assisting Jeff Morris)

So you essentially rebooted it by pulling the fuse? Sounds like Windows.
