Will my odometer be reset to zero?
No it will not reset to zero, your mileage will still display correctly after repair. Your GM’s mileage is stored inside the gauge cluster on a memory chip and is automatically saved there when you remove the gauge cluster. When you plug it back in after repair it will display the same mileage it showed when you removed it.
Will my instrument cluster have to be reprogrammed after I get it back?
No, when you get it back it’s ready to plug back in and go!
How long will it take to get it back?
Depends on shipping time but typically a week on average, this varies by location. Tracking numbers are provided for your shipment. Shipping upgrades are available during checkout.
How much do you charge?
The 03-06 GM Full Rebuild service and the 05-08 Mustang Rebuild Service is $189. 1999-02 GM digital odometer repair is $179.
I’d like a white gauge face, do you have gauge face upgrades?

Can I drive my vehicle while the instrument cluster is out for repair?
Yes, you can still start and run your vehicle without the instrument cluster.
Is it cheaper to just buy a used one?
Excellent question! Here’s the thing with GM speedometers, buying a used one is like rolling the dice and hoping for the best. After all, there’s a reason your gauge went out, most people don’t know this but the original stepper motors GM used were defective and eventually they all go out. That’s also why we replace all the motors of every instrument cluster we receive, not just the one that went out. If you replace your cluster with another used one there’s No Guarantee it won’t die on you just like yours did a few weeks after you put it in, and junk yards typically never warranty electronics.
Even if you can find a used one for less than my cost I can assure you it won’t come with my Amazing Lifetime Guarantee and you’ll have a tough time finding one with the same mileage on the odometer as your vehicle has. Yep, your mileage is stored inside the gauge cluster not in the main computer which means a used gauge cluster will make your vehicle display whatever miles that vehicle had on it. Correcting that would require a trip to the dealer and they’d probably turn you down flat out due to fears of odometer tampering laws. This is one of the many reasons why it’s almost always best to have your original gauge cluster repaired instead of changing it for a different one.
All my gauges quit at the same time, can you still help?
Often I get calls from folks who’ve got instrument clusters that have completely died- all gauges have quit at the same time. Normally we can repair those problems too, the cost is the same.

I’m pretty close to you, can I drop off my gauge cluster for repair?
