    I have the '05 Impala. My speedometer keeps getting faster and faster regardless is I am going faster or slower. I have to stop the car and put it into Park and turn the ignition on/off really fast to get it to go back to zero. It is really annoying for a car that is 3 1/2 years old with 85000 miles on it. I also just had to get the tranny rebuilt for $2500. What a waste of money. I will never buy a newer model car. Older cars you can just replace the tranny for less than $1500. Newer cars **** to work on.

Hi,

Sounds like your speed sensor (odometer sensor) is failing or failed. This sensor is found on the tranny. Best to consult your local dealership.

Hello all,
It's hard to believe that a company we all support (and used to love) would leave us in the dust and turn it back on us. It is so obvious they have a speedo cluster defect and expect us to pay for their incompetence!!!!
And they actually want us, the people they are burning of hard earned dollars, to bail them out!!!
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you dig, you will find unimaginable amounts of people with this same problem on the internet and they know it.

Shame on them, and on us, if we give them another chance to do it to us again. They sit in their offices of gold and wonder why the empire is failing, dah!!! You can only rip people off for so long before it will bite you back.

They expect to have a long term business with short term business pricipals, dah again!!!
If you have a problem as I do, call 1-866-0405 or log on to www.speedometersettlement.com for info regarding your bogus speedo.

Is america producing anything of quality anymore?

Speedometer isnt reading right....EX: if im going 40 the speedometer says im going 65


From the sounds of it the vehicle computer was switched from mph to kph. You should be able to change this back using the driver information center located above your stereo under your settings options. 40mph=64.4 kph. If you have your owners manual available may want to consult that how to completely change it back.

Both speedometer & tachometer not working, both reading wrong.


There was a recent class action law suit settled with GM for this exact problem. You can google gm speedometer lawsuit and get lots of information. Unforutunately for most people I think the warranty was limited to 7 years and 70,000 miles. Which isn't a lot of miles for most people.

If you car isn't covered by the warranty there is a way to "reset" the speedometer.

You can turn the ignition slowly like you are going to start the engine. There is a very small "dead" space where you will see your guage lights go off.

What you want to do is cycle the ignition switch from off to that dead space. Each time you do it your stuck speedometer will move towards zero about 10 mph. So if its stuck on 40 you will have to cycle it at least 4 times.

At first you will probably actually hit the ignition and the engine will try to start.....just release it and try it again.

I know this because I have a 04 avalanche with 80,0000 miles and it has this problem about twice a month.

Oil pressure on a 2004 5.3 liter silverado at idle is around 20


The pressure to be most concerned with is the reading in gear at idle with engine warmed up...Low end really should not be below 20. If pressure wanders, change the sending unit and check actual pressure with a mechanical gauge if necessary. The age and quality of your oil, as well as temperature all play a part in pressure, as well as internal wear from time & miles of use. If pressure changes with rpm, that is normal. 40psi is good while driving.
need more info just ask.

The stepping motors in the gauges go bad. do a search on ebay for CHEVY SILVERADO INSTRUMENT CLUSTER for cheaper repair options. The dealer charges around $300.00. It will continue to worsen.
