Stepper motors for ‘02 and newer, all 6 for $20 on Amazon, for my ‘98, $35 each on Ebay and out of stock. I do my own labor. This is a banger work truck and I’m a cheapskate. Yeah, I like cable from transmission, I also like carburetors. No issues with GM here, it’s been a solid vehicle, especially for a freebie.

Has anybody heard about radio volume control wire causing this problem? It’s dark green, PIN 16, gray plug.

That stinks, Happy . . . huge difference in price.

For the record, my vehicle is a 2005 Chevy.

Possibly a local Speedometer Shop would sell you the Steppers, no labor, for less than that $35 price or at least suggest a better, more realistic source? Definitely worth a try.

When I lost the temp and voltage on my S-10 I installed supplemental mechanical gauges... worked like a charm.

When the fuel gauge quit I used the odometer and drove it for years... had no problem selling the truck as it was clean and dent and rust free.

If you're able to read speed and tach in the scan tool, then there is nothing wrong with your sensors or sensor wiring. Either you need a new instrument cluster/display or the pigtail worked itself out of your current display. It could be bad wires at the display or even a broken fuse inside the fuse box.
