 I have a 2003 silverado that has been having rough idling issues. the truck doesn't idle rough everyday,but when it does the voltage fluxuates between 10-14 volts. before this started happening it stayed at a steady 14 volts. now the voltage is dropping and the rpm's are dropping to around 200-300 rpms then some times it will die in motion. i have replaced the alternator and had the battery tested they are good. there was low fuel pressure so i replaced the pump,still nothing is helping. i found a internet site (www.topix.com) there is 15 pages of people with the same problem. nobody can find a definite problem. there is people spending thousands on their vehicle to fix it and the parts don't always help. i have no warning lights coming on,so i don't even know where to start anymore. i'm broke. i feel that gm needs to do something for all the people affected by this. ## vin passed ## chevrolet silverado 1500 4x4 2003 ## *tr

 My 2003 chevrolet silverado 1500's gauges on the instrument panel are malfunctioning. while on the interstate the speedometer reading started showing speeds of over 100 mph while cruising at 70 mph. when i turned the truck of the gauge did not drop below 75. since i first noticed this issue the gauge has continued to read an improper speed. the misreading has fluctuated from 20 to 75 mph off of the correct speed. the rpm gauge has also been doing the same thing.

 Left turn signal causes the turn signals to act as hazard signals preventing other drivers from knowing the truck is turning left. it is sporadic, but often hear a buzz under steering column when it occurs. see it is an often reported problem with a failed hazard lamp flasher module whose contacts fail due to moisture. must be replaced with a sealed module. chevy claims there is no recall on faulty part (called 4/8/10).

 Speedometer started working sporadically. sometimes sticks below 0, sometimes moves sporadically and does not indicate correct speed. internet search shows this is a very common problem. gm is aware of this problem and has issued a service bulletin, but is it only valid for vehicles under 80k miles. this is a safety hazard in that the driver does not accurately know the vehicle speed and does not know if he/she is traveling at a safe speed. when the speedometer reads lower than the actual speed (it may read 5 or 10 mph below the actual speed, or may be much lower, as the indicated speed is unreliable), the driver may be going faster than he/she realizes into a curve or turn, which might lead to a crash, possibly injury or death. chevrolet advertises that they build the longest lasting trucks. isn't it reasonable to expect something as basic as a speedometer to work properly for more than 80k miles? dealer said a new instrument cluster is needed to repair this defect. since the vehicle is beyond 80k miles, this would cost the owner approximately $500. *tr

 Erratic speedometer, engine trouble / check abs lights always on. no specific event, just started registering very high speeds or very low speeds that did not match actual speed of vehicle. changes every time vehicle is turned off and turned back on or when stopped. unable to gauge and maintain speed prudent for weather conditions in our area, which is usually snow, sleet, rain, or all three at once. dangerous condition not knowing speed and causes anxiety from worry and possibility of speeding ticket. cannot concentrate on road ahead trying to determine speed from passing objects. trouble lights just came on and stayed on. unable to remedy. *tr

 I have a 2003 chevy silverado 1500 and i want to report the defects i've noticed with my truck. first of all, the seat belt tends to jam for no reason. i was sitting at the intersection when i tried to lean over and the seatbelt was jammed. i could not move at all. this has happened several times to me and some friends. another problem is the a/c system. my truck has dual control system and the drivers side will blow hot air while the passengers side blows sold air all while the settings are both in cold air. turning off the ignition and restarting seems to temporarily fix the problem but within 20 minutes i am back to square one. this problem is extremely common as i have heard many other people complain of the exact same problem. finally, the other issue is the speedometer. the speedometer seems to work only when it wants too. i had this problem about 2 yrs after i bought it and i experience this more often now. sometimes other gauges will not work either such as the battery and rpm gauge. *tr

 Tl*the contact owns a 2003 chevrolet silverado 1500. while driving 30 mph, the speedometer became stuck and then increased to 80 mph. currently, the speedometer is stuck at 78 mph and does not move. the vehicle is parked in the contact's driveway. he had to use his gps to control his miles per hour while driving. the dealer informed him of a class action lawsuit and that they extended the mileage failure regarding the lawsuit. however, the contact would be responsible for the cost to repair his vehicle. the manufacturer is aware of the failure and the contact feels that they should pay for the repair. the failure mileage was 108,000.

 Problem is internal gauge cluster defect. in other words, the speedometer doesn't work. for the last 6 months, the gauge has a mind of its own. mostly much higher than the actual speed. i called puritain of cape cod to fix and they said vehicle has over the 70,000 miles. they since have gone out of business. *tr

 On december 21, 2008, my speedometer began to malfunction. the speedometer can intermittently read anything from zero (when i am actually doing more than 50 mph) to 110 (when i am actually doing about 60 mph). when the symptoms began to occur, i called my local gm dealer to see about repairs, and i was told my vehicle was outside of the repair window for the courtesy repair, and when i asked how much it would cost to repair it on my own, i was told about $500. since the problem is (so far) very intermittent and unpredictable, and since i don't happen to have a spare $500 to spend on a serious safety problem which gm has apparently known about for some time and refuses to address beyond a very limited scope, i elected to wait and see. but in the meantime, i have no accurate speedometer reading, and must attempt to gauge my speed by that of the other vehicles surrounding me at any given time. this is hardly an acceptable situation. i have owned many vehicles over my lifetime (i am 60 years old), and i have never had any with instrument cluster failures. *tr

 The speedometer on my 2003 silverado started acting erratic. at first the vehicle speeds were highly inaccurate, i.e. while driving 60 mph on the highway using a gps unit the speedometer showed between 100 and 110 mph. shortly after the hand went to bottom horizontal position and rendered the speedometer useless. i understand from discussion forums on the internet that this is a common problem that is resolved through the replacement of the instrument cluster. possibility of inadvertent wrong choice of speed could become dangerous for vehicle operator and bystanders. *tr

 The dash instrument cluster panel on my 2003 chevy silverado went out. none of my gauges a functional. not even the gas gauge. i'm afraid if i run out of gas in heavy traffic, there could be a serious injury. i got a letter from gm, they say its a known problem, but wont recall the part. they only fix it for you if you are under 70,000. mine went out at 70,000 so they will not recall or repair. if its a known problem, it should be recalled. please help me & probably many others get this recalled. *tr

 I have a 1500 chevy, silverado. i was notified by ?? because the dealership i purchased the vehicle from has closed. the recall stated a problem with the instrument panel cluster. but, because we had more than 70,000 miles it was not covered. we had to pay over $300.00. we were not notified in a timely manner and should be reimbursed. in 2006 when the odometer and the temp gauges was sticking we did not have 70,000 miles. the air bag light is still stuck since 2006. *tr

 The speedometer on my 03 chevrolet silverado randomly sticks. right now it is stuck at 80 mph and the truck is stationary and is not even started. this causes my speed to display wrong and i must use simple arithmetic to figure out how fast i'm going. however, at this point, i can only use that arithmetic to determine up to 40 mph as my speedometer only measures up to 120. after that, i don't know how fast i'm going. this is the fourth time this has happened -- it seems to eventually fix itself only to happen again. in checking internet chat rooms, this seems to be a common occurrence for chevy/gm vehicles in that production year. why has this been allowed to continue without a recall? my car is due for inspection. i can only hope that i get the speedometer back to 0 to have this inspection done as i don't have time to get the repair done nor do i feel i should have to spend a dime on something that is obviously a manufacturing problem. please do your job and issue a recall. otherwise, it's back to buying foreign vehicles! *nm

 I was driving down the road and started slowing down. while i was slowing down my speedometer wouldn't show my speed it just stuck at 60 mph. when i went to speed up the speedometer would speed up also speedometer would read 65 when really i was only going 5 mph. pulled the truck over and shut the engine down the restarted it until the speedometer was at 0 mph. then pulled back on the hwy, while speeding up to the traffic the speedometer would read 0 mph. took the truck to the dealer i bought it from and they told me that they were having problems whit other trucks like mine. the mechanic hooked up a tester and told me he didn't see any problem. after leaving the dealership the speedometer worked perfectly, for about 3 days now since then it is a guessing game weather or not the speedometer is telling me the right speed or if it is wrong. so i have been using my gps for the past few moths. i have talked to other people about this problem and also to chevy. chevy has quoted me anywhere from 600-1000 dollars to fix this problem. and others i have talked to have stated that it has cost them about that much also.

 Tachometer and speedometer needles swept full range and engine lost all power while driving on a highway. if this happens in a intersection during a start or while yielding, i fear an accident. no repair has been done because the power came back. it has not happened again. *nm

 Tl*the contact owns a 2003 chevrolet silverado 1500. while the vehicle was parked and with the keys in the ignition, a passenger turned the keys one notch. the vehicle was shifted out of the park position, which caused it to roll forward. the passenger did not have his foot on the brake pedal at any point. the service manager at the dealer stated that the vehicle is able to do that for towing purposes. the current and failure mileages were 126,000. the consumer stated when purchasing the vehicle he was informed you would have to push on the brake in order to transmission out of brake position and was alarmed to find that his vehicle was the only vehicle that has the defect. the consumer stated would like the dangerous defect investigate it as it is unsafe for not only him but also children that could easily get into the vehicle and move the it. updated 08/24/07 *tr

 (1) hot humid weather was apparently too much for my vehicle air conditioner. (2) the air conditioner blower motor resistor failed in addition to the associated electrical wiring going to the resistor. (3) the parts that were replaced cost $51.62, and the labor to replace the parts cost $445.00. the failure occurred with just over 31,000 miles on the vehicle. this failure could have just as easily resulted in a fire within the dashboard assembly in the passenger compartment of the vehicle. *tr
