Check your "factory" tire and rim size.. A lot of aftermarket wheel combinations will throw this off. If you have 'Stock' wheels it's a problem internally w/ your tranny.

I got emissions and tires balanced and now my speedometer is climbing up as im driving telling me that im going alot faster than i am on a 2004 buick lesabre custom


The Buick LaSabre custom is a 3800, I think. Your speedometor may very well be correct! Take it out on the highway and time yourself between mile markers. Those cars are very fast; if you got a good tire balance you may be going faster than it feels since the car is smoother riding now.

The speedo is electronic and has failed, you will need to have it repaired by an authorized GM repair shop that does GM electronics, this is not the dealer, they will send it out and charge 2X, send it out for repair yourself, bypass the dealer.
