I took it around the block and it seems like the needle stutters its way around the speedometer. Also the needle dont sit all the way down where there suppose to.

Is this normal?

vids of stuttering?
i wish i could but, i already went around the block with it once and i noticed i put 1 mile on it already, what if they dont refund it back, or else i would.

If you played an online video games, i kinda mean like a laggy speedometer.

What year is it out of and what year is your truck? I have heard of some weird issues happening like that if you swap between years.

I think you are required to contact the seller first, I'd no response then go from there.

You can file a claim with paypal after you've tried to contact the seller, I've only had to do it once, years ago.

Stepper motors are probably out...did they say they reconditioned it beforehand?
My '03 had a bad stepper on the speedometer...

Hit up your dealer. Who knows, they might be able to cover that one under the recall. Plus flash the correct miles.
Will it matter since i bought it used?

Theyre probly going to say that i bought it used and it was probly broken already and bs like that.

It wont hurt to try, ill head over in a couple of minutes...... what do you think i should tell them?

:shrug: Never hurts to try tho before sending it off to get fixed. I think some guy on ebay can replace all steppers for around a hundred bucks. IF thats the issue...

contact the seller....probably needs new stepper motors from what its doing. If the seller doesn't respond file a dispute and you'll get your money back. In plus thats the ugly esky cluster find the other one the made. I like the silverado cluster more than that one.

Kinda off topic but do you have to unhook the battery when switching these out or just unscrew the screws unplug and swap?

When i file a dispute am i suppose to ship the item back or until i get my refund?

My bad first time i had to do this, im a noob at online refunds.

if i do get a refund i think im just going to buy a stepper motor and try to fix my broken one, i found a tutorial on how to do it and it seems pretty easy.

this dude sells clusters and all kinds of parts.

it even looks like the gauges are off in the auction pics.

tell him to exchange it for another one, or give you your money back.


if he says no, file a dispute with ebay, and with paypal and you should get your money back. show them the pictures, and have pictures of what it should look like so they can see the defect.
