Thanks for letting us know how it worked out.
We all have a better/updated idea about what to do about our instrument panels now!
The Diesel Page is a great place isn't it?!

Default Goofy display

One thing i forgot to mention, the truck is drivable while the display is out for repair, just make sure you have plenty of fuel on board, don't speed.

Good advice. If you have an OBD adapter (ELM327, etc.) and a mobile app (Torque), you can monitor all that stuff that went missing while the IPC is tango uniform or out for repair.

Diesel/Vette,

I had the same positive experience with The Gauge Pro - thanks again for the reference. They received my Instrument Cluster Last Friday, completed the repair/upgrade, shipped it back the next day, and I had it back installed in my truck on Monday. I also had them do the LED upgrade. I second your comments about the great job they did. I would highly recommend The Gauge Pro to anyone who needs their Instrument cluster repaired. For those of us with 03-06 Trucks it might be a good preventative maintenance action and the LED back light upgrade is also a nice feature.

Here's a snip from the Gauge Pro Website that describes their service.

"HERE'S WHAT YOU GET:
Replace all stepper motors in the gauge cluster with high quality JUKEN X27.168 (NOT CHINESE JUNK)...your gauges will work again! (6 or 7 stepper motors, same price!)
Replace all backlighting. (Please choose from our Lighting Options list)
Repair of the PRND321 and odometer display if it is dim or dark.
Repair of dead or intermittent power to cluster in MOST cases...occasionally this condition requires replacement of the cluster, but usually it can be fixed.
Free return shipping of your cluster to you is also included!
Mileage is not affected! If your cluster has the "Odometer Error" message, please contact us before purchase.
Same or next day turn around in most cases...YOU WILL GET YOUR PART BACK FAST!!

Ok, I have the exact same problem with my 03 GMC 2500hd.
The driver information and odometer all change language on me, from French to English to Spanish, over and over. It will then stop scrolling and be normal, except being in a different language. Sometimes I can change it back to English on my steering wheel buttons, not always.
This has been going on for about 6 or 7 years now. The dealer said I had a bad clock spring as the horn also did not work, so I had my usual diesel shop replace the clock spring for $400, it made no difference at all.
I went back to my dealer with the results and they said then I needed to replace my cluster for $1000...!
I drove the truck for several years putting up with the oddball info center, then decided to check with a truck recycling shop, they had a cluster from a same year duramax for $150, so I jumped on it.
It took me 15 minutes to swop out the cluster and presto, everything was good. Great, first time in years.
That lasted 2 weeks until I started it one morning and there it went again, changing language non stop...!
I am getting very frustrated with this, it's the only problem with the truck, which with 230000 miles on it runs like a champ.
My diesel shop are also frustrated, now they are saying that maybe it's the Body Control Module.
Anyone have any ideas on that? And can you even change that out?

I would suggest you contact The Gauge Pro (CALL/TEXT 865 328 0080). Describe your problem and ask for his advice on how to proceed.
