The C4 is the name given to the Corvettes produced by Chevrolet between the years 1984 and 1996. The C4 came equipped with an instrument cluster on the driver's side of the dashboard that contained several gauges, such as the fuel gauge or speedometer, as well as several dash lights to help you see the cluster at night. The most common issues afflicting a faulty cluster are a burnt out fuse, a loose wiring connector or a faulty cluster.
