Any ideas where I can purchase the stepper motor's for the GM instrument
clusters. Have a 04 Trailblazer here with a failed speedo stepper. Soldered
in the temp stepper in place of speedo, same part # for all gauges in
cluster, but now no temp gauge. Drove it around with GPS unit to verify
speed and its right on. Apparently these need no calibration or I was lucky.
Or anybody have a old GM cluster laying around. I'd like to check some out
and see if most GM's interchange. It would be helpful to everyone to get
some info posted on parts and a fix. 15 min with a soldering iron beats
several hundred bucks for a replacement dash.
probably gonna try it this weekend. It would be nice to find a supplier for
new stepper motor's. I am sure someone sells them, there are companies who
will replace them for you so someone makes replacements. The only problem
with a boneyard is they want $75 and up around here for a used cluster,
hate to spend that much to experiment.

Marsh, your either gonna have to wait til I come to FL or forward your
shipping address. But don't wait long, I'll have to drink this 1/5 of Crown
Royal instead of gifting it to you. Think of how many people have dropped a
few hundred bucks to fix these. Remove cluster, fron and rear covers snap
on, remove pointer needles by pulling straight up, desolder 4 connectors
using copper wick or solder sucker. Use a low wattage iron. Install reverse
order. If you are uncomfortable with a solder iron pay your local tv shop a
few bucks to install. 95% of the problems I have seen with gauge clusters
have been stepper motors. Less than $10.00 to fix. If sippin CR makes you
that good I'm gonna have to switch from my Makers Mark, it's been a long and
mostly enjoyable relationship but sometimes ya got to let go.
