Hello - no, this is not a body control module issue. Two things to check initially - the instrument panel fuse, which is behind an access cover on the face of the instrument panel, and ground wire connections to the instrument panel. If the fuse and ground are OK, then the failure is probably internal to the circuit board for the (digital) instrument cluster. These can be repaired as well as replaced, and is an all-too-common story with this vintage of GM vehicle.
