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.

Speedometer not working


my speedometer will work every now and then but most the time it will read all the way up to 120 mph or stay at the wrong speed its not the speedometer or the dashboard cluster that's been checked out its a 2007 Pontiac Torrent FWD 5 speed transmission and it runs great. What do you think it could be?

Broken Speedometer?


You are correct in thinking if the speed sensor fails the check engine light should be on, and you should experience problems with the transmission.
It sounds like just the speedo has failed.

My speedometer on my 2004 chev tahoe reads 120 mph. Sometimes it is less but is never the correct speed I am going. What do I need? A cable or fuse??


First call your dealer. There is a free instrument cluster replacement recall, which may apply for your problem.

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.

"The Fix" works...I would have not believed it untill I did it.... Start the car in reverse and about 5 times later it reset the speedometer back to zero.....wow!

Acually it's a 2004 Silverado Speedometer problem


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.
