Question about 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Speedometer does not work properly. Since yesterday and a drive clean test the speedometer is wacky. The needle seems to be about 40Km above actual. When I turn the key of and park the car the speedometer stills shows 40km or so. Some times when I am driving about 100 the Speedo shows about 180 or more what is wrong

The circuit board that controls the speedo has failed, this is the symtom of that failure a wacky speedo reading, sticking reading high and so on, they can be repaired by any GM authorized electronics repair center, don't go through the dealer for the repair, they will send it out to the repair station and then 2X the cost to u, get the name from them though and call them yourself.

Speedometer needle wacky


I wouldn't imagine so. Unless it is from a different transmission, different gear ratios will tell the computer to display an inaccurate speed.

My 05 Focus speedometer is wacky. All other gauges and systems work fine. The speedometer needle doesn't go to zero when vehicle stops moving.


Sounds like the speedometer is faulty. If the speed sensor were the problem, the odometer would not work correctly, the transmission would not shift correctly, and the check engine light would be on.

When accelerating, my speedometer goes in reverse.


I would recommend you try to perform a fuel system pressure test. The specifications are available by calling the dealer. It seems you have a fuel delivery problem, possibly a bad fuel driver module or pump and that is located in the fuel tank. Follow the precautions when performing the test. If you hard accelerated and the vehicle stumbles or has a "dead spot" on acceleration then it's a good indication that it's a fuel delivery issue. The reason for the speedo going wacky is because the vehicle is not performing properly !!

THE SPEEDOMETER STOPS WORKING WHEN IT GETS HOT ON MY 2004 TRAIL BLAZER THANKS.


If everything else works ok, the vehicle drives normally, and all the other gauges are working then you may have a bad speedometer servo motor. This servo is what actually moves the speedometer needle to match the speed you are driving at. The cluster would need to come out and be repaired to fix this problem if this is the case.

Speedometer Needle for Hyundai 2004 Accent


If your transmission fluid level is okay, then you need a new speedometer cable. Its not terribly difficult to replace, but it does require you to pull the instrument cluster. A local Hyundai dealership might be willing to photocopy the specific speedometer cable replacement instructions out of the 2004 Accent shop manual.
