I am having the same issue with my 2003 Trailblazer. I also had gone to church on Sunday evening and all my dash lights go on. After church, my lights dimmed and I was afraid to drive home so I called my son-in-law to come and pick me up. Took to shadetree mechanic and he doesn't know what's wrong. This all happened on day with lots of heavy rain and my back passenger side window is broken so it was down a few inches. Does anyone know if moisture got inside somehow?
Please let me know what your solution was! Thanks so much!

My 2005 Trailblazer speedometer shows I am going 55 mph while sitting still. I see many discussions with the same issue. Does anyone know if GM will replace the parts as indicated by others who have posted?

#50 of 58 Trailblazer Instrument cluster classaction lawsuit
Feb 20, 2013 (6:21 pm)
I was wondering what the possibility of forming a group to file a class action lawsuit would be. GM has acknowledged the instrument cluster issue on several other models but don't want to address the Trailblazer as one of the problem models
They are knowingly subverting the problem and making us owners pay through the nose to fix THEIR problem of selling defective equipment on these vehicles. I too am having the same problem and they want me to pay $100.00 just so they can diagnose the problem. Then $600.00 more for the part when they darn well know they built these vehicles with defective parts. So if they won't voluntarily issue a recall then I think as owners we should force the issue.I am sure that there are plenty of lawyers who would take the case as GM would end up footing the bill

So I have contacted Eric Gibbs of Giraldi Gibbs LLC about this issue and I was told that there is enough proof out there to get the ball rolling on this. We just need to get enough plaintiffs together to file. I just find GM's outright repression of this issue to be deceptive and repulsive. So if GM doesn't want to step up and do right by all the good people of this country who are trying to support American manufacturing then we need to exercise our American right to have our day in court.

I was wondering the same thing as to why GM wont recall the issue since there clearly is an issue the instrument panel per all the posts. When I called GM it was nearly a $1000 fix to get new parts and labor. The service tech beleived GM doesnt recall the problem since it is not a "safety" issue. If you begin the class action suit I will help you post on all these other threads to see if we could get enough people who have expierenced the same issue who would be willing to participate.

#55 of 58 Another IC Failure
Mar 18, 2013 (4:03 pm)
Thought I would post a.) to not feel alone on this issue, b.) to state my symptoms to see if anyone else has had them. Speedometer went dead on 04 Trailblazer Instrument cluster all other gauges working fine. Spent $600 dollars on a new IC to fix the speedometer at the dealership. Two days later the oil pressure gauge is reporting abnormal high values, value rises as I apply gas. Now the oil pressure gauge "starts" at 60 when engine is turned on and doesn't fall back to 0 when the engine is off. I feel like it could be a defective IC/steeper motor on the oil pressure guage or maybe my unit wasn't fully replaced just "fixed." I am scared to take it back to the dealer to be had for more repair costs that weren't there before the IC was replaced. Any ideas/suggestions?
