How do I fix the gear indicator lights on my 99 Chevy Silverado?

On your truck, you will have to replace the cluster in the dash. You will need to take it to your local dealership to have them order it. I would let the dealership install it, because the new cluster will have to be programmed. I hate to send you to a dealership because they cost an arm and a leg but that is about the only option you have. You might be able to find an aftermarket cluster, but it might not work correctly. I hope this helpful.
