    Hey guys,

    Our 2004 2500hd has an issue with the dash instrumentation. The clock, radio display, and mileage display does not come on when the truck is started. It will come on a few minutes later. Everything works fine (climate control, gauges, etc..,) just the illumination. Checked fuses, everything is ok. Any ideas?

    Is the "roller" switch on the left side of the dash turned all the way down?

    No. It's where it should be. Overhead lights and everything work fine, just the electronic instrumentation takes about 5 minutes to come on. Just started it a couple days ago.
