She had not noticed any prior issues with those components. I have heard this has been an issue on previous year models and gm has not done a recall. Yesterday, the speedometer completely went crazy while I was driving, quit working at 25 mph, and when I slowed down, the needle went below the mph gauge line and is now pointing straight down, blocking my view of the gear shift panel on the instrument cluster.

If you have experience soldering electronics Silverado speedometer repair kits are available online for some models — see link in resources section below. I noticed my old cluster gauge tachometer and speedometer gauge also were a bit notchy, and didnt move smooth.
If the oil pressure sending unit checks out then you know the oil pressure gauge is bad and needs rebuilt. The dealer told that the contact the vehicle was not included in any recalls and therefore, he would have to assume all repair costs. The contact stated that the speedometer would intermittently become stuck on one speed and would also display the inaccurate speed traveled. Finally, rotate each needle counter clockwise until the tip of the needle points right to the mark on the masking tape that you made in a previous step. This solution will require the replacement instrument cluster to be re-programmed so that the odometer displays your vehicles mileage instead of the vehicle the cluster came out of. You may need to go 360 degrees counter clockwise all the way around stopping at the point you need to get it just right.
Why Is My Cluster Not Working? No change in oil pressure. Ruling out the speed sensor you can be certain you need speedometer repair to fix the issue. In some cases the needle will move smoothly but will be reading noticeably higher or lower than normal at all points. The pressure was slow to rise with this setup but went up to 40-45psi cold idle which matched the gauge in the car, but only dropped do about 34psi when warmed up coolant at 200F according to scan tool, idled for 15-20 minutes. Once reset it may start having the same problem immediately or it might be another week or two before this problem presented itself again.
I am very happy with my purchase. Note: may require additional programming for functionality. Now make a pen mark on the tape just below the top of each needle.

I spoke to the dealer and was told there is a recall on older models, but not on my 05. Replacement requires de-soldering of the faulty stepper motors for removal and soldering in of the new X27. Probably what happened is the circuit board got too hot during the old solder removal causing damage to the board. I know I wrote a bible about it, but maybe it will help someone else. But when I started driving within the next 3-4 hours I noticed it was not reading the speed at all.
I have the same problem that all the gauges are out. In the rare occasion that the item is not repairable, we will either replace the circuit board entirely or refund the cost of the repair, at our discretion.
