I have an 04 Chevy Trailblazer and I am having issues with the instrument cluster. All the gauges stopped working (except speedometer and tach). The only digital readout I get is the odometer and the trip. After sitting for couple days the battery goes completely dead. If I remove the instrument cluster over night or the instrument cluster fuse then the battery does not go dead. So we have narrowed the battery issue down to the cluster as well. So far I have replaced the alternator (before realizing it wasn't the problem)stepper motors and the ignition switch (as referred from another forum before I found this one). Today everything started working ok then went back out after a few minutes.I was wondering if anyone had any opinion as if it would be inside the cluster and if anyone knows where online I can buy a brand new one? I called dealerships and they want $475-$550 to replace, but will reprogram a new one for $140.
Thanks in advance!
