THE PROBLEM IS THE SPEEDO ITSELF HAS FAILED (VERY COMMON), YOU CAN'T FIX IT, IT MUST BE PULLED OUT AND SENT TO AN AUTHORIZED GM ELECTRONICS REPAIR CENTER, THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT HAVE THE PARTS AND REPAIR MANUALS.

Bring it to the dealer and have the cluser replaced. Chevy extended the warranty on the cluster to 70,000 miles.

2005 Chevy Silverado, 48,500 miles. Needed a boost yesterday (flashers killed the battery). Today, the RPM goes to 5 and 6 and the speedometer registers 120 (I know I have a lead foot but not that bad). ...


Well, when the battery goes dead or is disconnected, the vehicle's computer has to re-learn all the parameters while it is in operation. Perhaps after several trips it will work normally.

Changed speed sensors in 03 silverado but speedometer still reads incorect?


I have a 2005 Silverado and around 75,000 miles the speedometer started malfunctioning. It would go to max speed, then everytime I started the engine it would step down about 5 mph until it finally reached normal. It would be ok for a while and then do it again. I found out there is a known problem with the speedometer. Depending on age of vehicle and mileage some of the repair cost is covered. You have to pull the whole dash unit and replace it. Dealer only, as they have to get a documented replacement with correct mileage. You may have a different problem but worth checking.

Speedometer quit on 2005 silverado but the


The Chevy instrument panels had problems with the gauges functioning. Mine says I am always doing 120mph, for the past 80,000 miles. See your dealer for a replacement. It wasn't recalled, but there was a class action suit for some of the production years which might cover replacement.

Please rate this answer. Thank you.

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.
