I think the instrument cluster has gone bad. They will have to replace it. Chances are there is a recall on it, if not call GM customer service and complain. I had this problem on an 03 Siverado and the dealer wanted $500.00. The service writer told me not to tell anyone but if I called GM customer service they would pay for it. He was right. Good luck.

Speedometer quit working


this is normal for all cars. this old, !
what is your question. most Geo speedos die at 150k miles.
you forgot to say, did odometer die too? big time error that...
for any accurate answers.

my guess, is , you are asking how to diagnose the speedo,
right?
ok pull the cable at tranny, and spin it by hand (or drill) in the same
direction as the needle moves, in dash.
mine is CCW direction
so spin it in CCW dir. and see if the needle moves up scale.
if not , maybe the cable is snapped, inside.
so pull the cable out. is it snapped?
if not the head is bad, if both the speedo and odometer
are dead,
here is one page showing how to do that.
if both are dead , it can only be 3 things.
1: BAD HEAD.
2: BAD CABLE
3: tranny gears x2 bad,one or both stripped, (plastic gears)
the test is easy, spin it from down under. and look.
do not pull the cable down under or the cable will disengage the head, and slip (simple sqaure drive it is)
gettting the head out is another long story.

Odometer inop


the odometer gets it drive signal from the spedometer so if the spedometer is working then the only thing that can be wrong is the drive circuit from the spedometer to the odometer, the only thing you can do is replace the spedometer assembly, and now the bad news the spedometer on this car has its own computer that has to be programed to match with the other computers on the car so if you get a used or new unit you will have to take the car to GM and have the computer flashed so that it will work with all the other computers on the car.....good luck

Speedometer stopped working on 2004 trailblazer.it happened during a recent cold snap.the warm weather since has not made a difference,although occasionally now the hand will move slightly. mostly it just...


There is no speedo cable on 04 T.B. all electric. You can get the stepper motors on line 6 of them thats what that board takes& thats how they sell them. I did mine you can check online for instructions. It is not that hard to do I took the speedo board to my computer shop & he did a great job soldering the 6 stepper motors to the speedo board. there is a GM mec. who gives detailed instructions how to do it. He is fed up with how many he has done. & GM Rip off price to do it. your dealer wants $ 250.00 to $500.00 to fix your broken speedo problem. 6 steeper moters $35.00 to $45.00 on line & $50.00 to solder them. Good luck.

Odometer stopped working


IF YOUR SPEEDO IS WORKING THEN YOUR VSS IS OKAY, BAD VSS WILL STOP SPEEDO AND USALLY CAUSE HARD SHIFTING. NORMALLY ODO IS CONTROLLED BY SERVO MOTOR WHICH MAY HAVE WENT OUT. CHECK EBAY FOR REPAIR SERVICES OR SIMPLY GET A SALVAGE CLUSTER AND HAVE MILEAGE RESET

2000 ford focus speedometer stuck at max speed


it may have a static charge in the instrument cluster,try un-hooking the battery then turn the key on and even hit the brakes to try to drain the spark out of the system,hooking the 2 cables together with the battery disconnected may work as well to drain it.hook up the battery and see what happens,but make sure the key is off and nothing is on-lights,radio,wipers etc,it could send a spark to the computer.

1995 honda accord speedometer and odometer not working


Sounds like either your speedometer cable, your nylon gear on the side of the tranny where the cable ties in, or the odometer itself is shot. One of those three will set you straight. If you are able, remove the cluster, take the cable off the back, and pull it out of the sheath. You will see if its broken or not from there. If not, slide it back into the sheath, then you have to find out where the sheath meets the tranny, and pull it off of there. Then, you can get someone else to watch the speedo as you turn the cable from the bottom. If it works, great, if not, then its your cluster/odometer/speedo. If it does work, the small gear in the transmission is shot.

1997 Geo Metro speedometer and odometer do not work


Let me guess, it goes up to about 30, stays there, and if you go faster (past what would be the halfway point of your speedometer) it starts dropping below 30. It sounds like the type of speedometer that uses two magnetic cores at 90 degrees to each other, and one has gone out.

Troubleshooting and repair should be similar to this: http://www.fieros.de/en/articles/speedo.html
