Battery would go dead in after sitting two days--

I did a lot of testing and found that when I removed the cluster from the dash and left the truck everything was fine-I double checked by re-installing it and the problem returned-I went on line and found a repair service - It cost $70.00 including shipping to repair-Dealer cost is around $300.00 + or - Also-- anyone can remove -

This electrical short is draining the battery. The dashboard works sometimes, you never know how fast your going, how mush gas you have or anything that may come up. I have had a electrical engineer look at it and a person from GM and they can't figure it out. WE think we fixed it then we drive it hit a bump or turn off the truck and everything goes black. It is just a pain in my ass and just BS that you spend 35K on a truck built to last and after 3-4 years you are left with a piece of sh*t.
