Question about 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

2 Answers

Some times my speedometer doesn't go back to 0 when i stop

The speedometer will stick at whatever speed i was traveling then when i stop. then when i take off it will show the wrong speed. it will keep doing that until the speedometer reads well above the maximum speed on the guage. eventually it will go back down on its own, but it can take days of driving with no speedometer before this happens.

There's a chance it could be your gauge, this is a pretty common issue for Trailblazers to have. Here's a link with more information about these GM gauge problems. And where you can purchase replacement parts on Amazon if you'd like to repair the problem yourself. How To Repair My Instrument Cluster

Google year & make of car for fuse panel fuse diagram. Do the fuse trick you did. If you notice any corrosion or caked gunk on fuse legs...replace fuse....If problem persists it's probably the VSS Vehicle Speed Sensor which gives the vehicle speed to the speedometer.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Speedometer doesn't work and it doesn't change gears right


vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, it fails and the speedometer will not work, it could affect shifting because the computer does not know the speed you are traveling

your speed sensor is gone.. you have an electronic odometer so when the electricity passes improperly.. you get what you got!!
