I have a 2006 chevy avalanche and the instrument cluster quit working. just the gauges and the dic. The fuse is good and has voltage but I do not have voltage at the plug on B11. My prints show the orange wire going from B11 to F7 in the fuse box, but I'm only seeing a pink wire there. Does anyone know where this orange wire is located in the back side of the fuse box? I did have a mouse get in there and chew some stuff up, but I've repaired all of that. Or does anyone know an alternative solution?

You might want to remove the instrument panel to check and see if you can trace the wire from the wiring cluster attached to the back of the panel. It takes only about 5 minutes to remove the cluster. If you don't know how, just google how to remove instrument cluster on 2006 chevy pickup. You will get various choices. There is a youtube to watch.

I did remove instrument panel and the wiring goes into a foam pad behind the steering column but that is far as I can go without removing the whole dash.

Yes, B11 is an orange wire and should go to Bat +, meaning it should always have voltage. The wiring diagram I have for a 2004 shows that either F7 on connector C1 or E4 on connector C1 should feed this circuit. I don't have the wiring diagram for 2006, so I can't be sure it didn't change. In any case, that wire on B11 should go directly to the fuse block. E4 on C1 is fed by the SEO B1 fuse and F7 on C1 is fed by the IPC/DIC fuse.

Just want to say thank you again! It was F7 I was looking on the wrong block not C1. The wire was bad right before coming into the fuse box.
