    I have the same problem in my 2005 Rainier. Speedometer doesn't work. I actually got a speeding ticket because of this.

    I have the same problem on my 2004 Buick Rainier, V8, CXL. Dealershp advised me $650 expense to change the whole console for speedometer area.

    I have a 2004 Buick Rainier and the speedometer gets stuck now. One quick fix was to un-hook the battery and let the cluster re-set itself. I have also replaced the battery and I am getting ready to replace the alternator. Hope this permanently fixes the problem!

    My speedometer just went to 150 today and won't go below 80 when the vehicle is sitting still. Found this site while looking for a solution. Looks like there isn't one. /gcm

    Unhooked the battery. Problem was not fixed. Tried this several times to no avail. Have ordered new cluster.

Same problem on our 2005. We paid the dealer several times and they never fixed the problem for any legnth of time, though they always charged us. I am afraid this was such a bad experience we will not purchase another GM. Why does GM spend so much on advertising and so little time standing behind its products.

Well, finally broke down and paid to have the instrument cluster replaced. Only good thing is that the warranty was still in effect and it cost about 80% less than I had feared. Small mercies, I guess!

My mazda drifter 2.5 D don't rev over 3000 rpm and don't go over 120 km when its in 5th gear,its like limiting pulling back.What can it be it never did it?I use to push it 160 km @ 5000 rpm before


So it did rev higher and go faster before i see. 160kph equates to almost 100 mph!!! In that truck?? You nuts!! I put my Mazda Millenia supercharged V6 to 140mph in Nevada but that was on straight roads with no curves in site for miles ahead. Haha. Ask again if this is a diesel motor in truck. That sounds like getting close to limit of capacity of engine but if more was expected and received before then would look at an exhaust restriction first. Do you have catalytic converters on the truck?

Colorado speedometer reads high according to GPS


Find one of those radar displays that sit on the roadside and tell you how fast you're going. Most likely your GPS is the one that's off, because it has to average and estimate your speed, wheras the vehicle's speedometer should be good from the factory.

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero. I left it sitting in the cold for 2 days and when I tried to start it the battery was dead. Took the battery to get recharged and now the car starts, but the speedometer...


Hello Aubrey.

I have seen this happen before. Caused by a voltage surge mostly by hooking up the battery with the key on.

When you get your car up to a speed on the highway that is halfway on your speedometer it will come back around. You may need to get up to 70 or 80 MPH.

Watch you don't get a ticket!

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a 2002 Outback that hesitates when it's upshifting, usually around 30-40 MPH. When accelerating to go faster at higher speeds, the Check Engine Light comes on. ( Resets by unhooking battery) The check...


its probably the knock sensor! thats what happened to mines as well... its a common problem with this car.. the part costs 100.00 and all you need to change it is a wrench! :)

the only sure way to know tho is to get a diagnostic which can be done for free at autozone or sears :)

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.
