    My 05 yukon speedometer shows 50 mph sitting still. GMC has a recall for the 03 & 04 vehicles with this same problem but not a recall for the 05.

    I have the same problem - my dealership said it was expensive to fix and I could wait until the part is recalled?!? how crazy is that!?! Mine sometimes works and other times, NOT!

    My 05 Yukon does this as well.... 45 at a complete stop and 25 flying down the highway....sometimes just zero.. then the other day the gas gauge pegged to full and stayed there too.....this is ridiculous! Cant imagine what it is going to cost

    I have a 2005 Yukon and the speedometer sticks and most time remain on 0. I called them back starting in 2006 to advice of the problem and they just told me it was a problem with the 2003 and 2004. They offered to pay half of the cost to fix it and I refused. I was like how crazy is it to have a 2005 car and the speedometer not working in 2006. I call them like once a month complaining. I refuse to pay money to fix the car. I wish I never got the Yukon. My dream car for years and look what I got a true lemon.

I think we should all get a lawsuit going and force the recall issue. I may just talk to a lawyer tomorrow.

2003 GMC Yukon speedometer indicates less than actual speed by 30% - 60%.

Do you have after market tires that are larger than stock ? This will affect your speedometer.Another thing could be the speedometer gear which is easy and cheap. Its at the end of your speedometer cable inside of transfer case.

2005 gmc yukon speedometer doesn't work. Odometer still working though. How do i fix it? is it speedometer cluster?

It could be the cluster but I would look at the speed sensor first. It is located on the transmission. You should get a Haynes manual on your vehicle from the local auto parts store before going into the job.

2005 GMC Yukon XL speedometer stuck on 15mph, how can I fix?

You can check the speed sensor on the transmission. Tap the cluster to see if it will reset. If not remove and unplug the cluster if the guage stays its just stuck if it falls when you unplug it you might have a short somewhere.if it does stay you can take the plastic housing apart and try to reset it by hand.

2005 GMC Yukon Speed Odometer gets stuck

It is possible that the battery was the problem due to low voltage. I would keep an eye on the problem and make notes on any conditions if the problem reoccurs. The speedometer head or connections etc. could be a cause, but since problem seems fine now all you can do is watch to see if it happens again. Unfortunatly when a problem is not happening it is very hard to repair or find why it happened. That is why any info on when or how would be helpful even though it may not seem so.

I have 2005 Denali when driving at frwy speeds my speedometer start dropping eventually it goes all the way to 0 speed if I shut the vehical off it will start working again.

The 04-05 GM truck have a special policy for the speedos. if you have less than i think 70k, your local dealer should replace if for free. Double check this. If not you will have to pay for a new cluster, it runs about 450 or so.

Speedometer does not work properly

I have not heard of this before but I do know there is such a wide spread problem with the cluster (speedo) GM has extended warranty on several years and I expect they will add more years as time goes by.

Many of the problems I encounter have been speedo's showing a faster speed than actual, 100mph plus.

Good Luck

My speedometer is stuck

Typically on a Yukon instrument cluster this is caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board, it can be fixed though. Check out this page for more about Yukon speedometer problems and how to get it fixed - Yukon speedometer fix
