In my 2002 Pontiac Bonneville I intermitently lose the majority of my dash functions. Speedometer wont work, odometer, signal lights etc. There is no pattern to when it happens, seems random. Have had...


Most of the GM's I do are the plug that goes to the instrument panel. They just loose contact, 90% of the time I will unplug and plug them in and that fixes the problem. Some times I have to bend the tabs in the plug to make a snugger fit. Just don't bend to much. One time some one cut the data link connector off and the wires where grounding out intermittantly. That one was a pain.

The speedometer stopped working, the oil pressure guage works intermittantly, the gas guage is on intermitantly also.


Take your truck to a GM dealer and have the Body Control Module checked. The bcm controls most electrical and display functions inside of your vehicle.

Speedometer works intermittently


It is most likely the speed sensor in the transmission.

Two questions: Is your odometer working? If not then it's probably a broken gear by the stepper motor that Emissionwiz mentioned. Is your ABS and/or TRACS light on intermittently or constantly. If so that is a common sign your ABS control module has gone or is going bad. This usually happens before the speedometer starts acting up. Either one of these will start intermittently and finally end up with the speedometer not functioning at all, and both are pretty common failures with this model.

Speedometer stops working


perhaps a vehicle distance sensor located in transmission however if you have a check engine light on I would hook it up to a OBD 2 scanner to retrieve the fault code gue$$inglis not the way to go! the vehicle might have 2 of these sensors Vehicle input and output sensor be sure to check the speedometer cable to see if it is still functioning internally that would be totally mechanical!!! cable with in a cable! hope this helped you out!

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


This is most likely not a speed sensor problem, I see this a lot on 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters and it's always the same. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and it can be fixed. Check out this page for more about how to get it fixed - cavalier speedometer fix
