Chevrolet are classic American cars. It is hard to find a vehicle more dependable and sturdy than a Chevy. Though these are highly reliable vehicles, they are still prone to certain issues that require a Chevy repair shop. For instance, Chevy Impala owners report various electrical system issues and malfunctions. The most common of these are gauge cluster problems and the battery draining while the car is parked.
A bad cluster motor is generally to blame for gauge cluster problems. It causes the gauges to move crazily or stick in place. You speedometer and other gauges should move together when you turn off the vehicle. This is the easiest way to identify a bad cluster motor. The sending unit could also be the culprit when the gauges act wacky.
If the battery in your Chevy drains when the vehicle is parked, the instrument cluster could be to blame. Some technicians reported cycling and awake readings while testing the module. Replacing the cluster fixed the issue in those circumstances.
The best way to find out what is wrong with your vehicle is to head to a Chevy repair shop. The trained and certified technicians have the proper tools and knowledge to diagnose your vehicle. They use your description of the problem as a starting point, and perform a number of test to identify the problem(s).
