Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working

My speedometer is stuck or not working on my chevy cav 2005 a mechanic says it is a sensor where can i find it and fix it my self or is it possibly a fuse? help anyone? please.. 1998 cavalier speedo jumps from 0 to100 when driving down the road and the nexted time its ok
I've just noticed my '05 cavalier speedometer not working with the cold weather.Sometimes it works, seems like when I've driven a considerable distance (50 miles). Tachometer also works off and on - this was the first thing I noticed when I bought the car last march - speedometer was fine then.

    Speedometer worked on and off for months then went to 120 and stayed there. Two speeding tickets later they want $500-600 to replace the instrument panel cluster. Now I have problems with the vehicle over heating even after having the thermostat replaced. Now they say it is the sensor. Does that relate to my IPC by chance?

    I have a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier and the speedometer only works part-time. Right now it is sitting on 90 mph and only goes up from there! What could the problem be, and is it expensive?

    RPM GADGE DOES NOT WORK. SPEEDOMETER ONLY WORKS ABOUT HALF THE TIME.

    2005 chevy cavalier- after driving some distance, the speedometer reading gradually drops. After a stop, it resets to correct levels. The problem seems to arise after an acceleration or after some distance.

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

How to Open a Yahoo Account To start the Yahoo account registration process, you'll need a computer with an internet connection. Open any web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari) and go to www.yahoo.com. You'll see a homepage that will look similar to this:
There is no link on the homepage that will take you directly to a new account registration, but you can get there by clicking on the "Sign in" button in the upper right hand corner.
This will direct you to the login page for people who already have Yahoo accounts. To create a new account, just click the link at the bottom that says "create new account".
Now you will be taken to the Yahoo sign up form, where you will enter your personal information, choose a username/email address and a password for your account.
Yahoo will give you some suggestions for your username, but you don't have to use them as long as you pick a name that isn't already being used. As you can see, my first choice here wasn't available.
If the name you want is already taken, the easiest way to make it unique is by adding some numbers on the end. The next step is to choose a password to log into your Yahoo account. It should be a strong password that you can remember but other people won't be able to guess. My first password choice was an all lowercase dictionary word, which is a very weak password and not allowed by Yahoo because your account would be very vulnerable to hackers.
To make a stronger password, I chose one with more characters, including numbers, special characters and uppercase letters.
All that's left is to enter your cell phone number, date of birth and choose your gender. Your phone number is important because it may be used to verify your account and will help you retrieve your password in case you forget it. So make sure you choose your country code and enter your phone number correctly!
You can also enter a second recovery number if you want, but this is not required.
Finally, click on the "Create account" button. You'll be asked to enter a captcha code to prove you're not a robot, and you may also receive an SMS text message with a verification code from Yahoo. Enter these codes when prompted, and continue.
Tadaa! Your new Yahoo account has been created and you are being redirected to your new homepage. You'll see that you have been automatically logged in and your Yahoo homepage is now personalized for you.
From now on, whenever you login to your Yahoo account, this is the first place you will go. From here, you can access tons of features, including your Yahoo email account. Feel free to explore and see all the great features and tools you have access to now that you've opened your brand new Yahoo account.
Wish you use Ymail proficiently!

My chevy cavalier 2005, the speedometer and temperature gauge stopped working. I'm not sure whats wrong and don't want to get ripped off at the dealers. Please help if there is something I can check...


Is the ck engine light on If so take to a auto parts store that will ck the car for codes and that will tell you if the speed sensor is working or not> If the speed sensor is not working the ck engine light will be on and the car will have stored that code.If there are no codes that it is most likely the cluster for the speedometer not working . Now the temperature guage not working is the needle spunaround backwards past the stop If so that replace the cluster .If not than it needs to be ckd for a bad tempature sensor.This should also set a code and turn the ck engine light.

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


That Cluster will work But, You will have to get an Installation kit if you want the Tach to work. Everything else will hook up the Same. You have a Distribution Box (Fuse Box) Under the Hood on the Drivers Side, There is a Fuse in it for the Speedo. Inside the Cover to the Box is the Fuse Diagram or in the Back of the Owners Manual.

If your odometer is working and your speedo needle doesnt indicate correctly then your problem is the stepper motor in the cluster. I have repaired a lot of instrument clusters....cost is 105.00
