    Clicking sound while driving

    I'm now getting a clicking sound that comes from the gauge cluster area. It's not constantly ticking. I've noticed it's started doing it ever since the rpm dial screwed up. I've had that one screw up before but it never made sounds except sometimes when I turned the truck off.

    Anyone got suggestions?

    Do an advanced search on "stepper motors" you will receive a wealth of knowledge.

    I decided to order a different cluster. This cluster has been giving me sh!t ever since I bought the truck.

    Mine did the same thing but it was caused by a blown fuse for the seat heater.

    That's weird.

    I'm not too upset about it though because I don't like its face anyway.

    IMO it looks like a racer type face then the one I'm getting now. Which is the standard Cadillac one.

    Even the chevy or gmc one I like better than the old one

    This is my new one:

    Yea I had a 02 and agree it kinda reminds me of it, but some things do bug me like the fuel gauge and the gauges overall I think are more readable on the new one.

    True I like the gauges of the 02(which is styled more for a Cadillac but the readability could be a bit better I prefer the white faced gauges that the earlier hummer h2s had but they too was changed to black
