Replace the speedo with a used one from wreckers.

SOURCE: Speedometer not working properly

There was not a recall, but there was a class action settlement where GM agreed to extend the warranty on certain vehicles for this problem. Check to see if you qualify.

Sounds like the speedometer/odometer cluster or the dash cluster itself has given up. Suggest checking Ebay or googling "digital dash rebuilders" for some rebuilt units, or you may be able to get a factory unit from the dealer. This happens a lot. A resistor in the printed circuit can go bad or the units themselves can go bad. An entire rebuilt or good junkyard unit is the preferred fix.Sounds like the speedometer/odometer cluster or the dash cluster itself has given up.

You probably have a blown fuse that conrols the speedometer and shift point of the transmission; Check the fuses inside the car under the dash on the driver side. The speedometer tells the transmission when to shift.

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.

As soon as i start the car the speedometer reads at 120 mph then jumps around....when i put in drive, it works fine.

I had a Lincoln which did almost the same thing. On my car it was the Alternator shorting inside its casing. You can get a free test at Autozone or Oreillys on the car.

Now mine did not return to normal when I put it into Drive. So on your car you may have an Electrically shifted transmission. I would think if the Alternator passes its tests, you have a short in the shift control module which is shorting the Alternator and its Regulator inside..

My Speedometer would read 60mph and the Odometer would count the miles when the car was sitting still. I replaced a Digital dash to no avail and then found the Alternator was the reason my Speedo and Odometer were acting up. Immediately after changing the Alternator all problems stopped for me.

Is the speed sensor that you are using the original one, or is it from the Camaro, or is it new for an 89 K1500?

The worm gear inside of the transmission on the output shaft that drives the speed sensor gear is not damaged?

No matter what speed sensor is installed the speedometer still reads the same?

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra Pickup and the speedometer stopped working, well actually it goes in between 90 and 120. What do i do?

Your instrument cluster needs to be rebuilt, your speedometer drive motor is wearing out, very common on these trucks.
