SOURCE: Acually it's a 2004 Silverado Speedometer problem

Hi,

Sounds like your speed sensor (odometer sensor) is failing or failed. This sensor is found on the tranny. Best to consult your local dealership.

SOURCE: 2004 silverado speedometer does not return to 0

It sounds like a junk speedo. Try unhooking the battery for 5min, then hook it back up and try it. If that doesn't work, unhook the ecm, turn on the ignition and see if it reads o, if it doesn't, replace the cluster.

Hi Norton,

What has happened is your speedometer and tachometer drive motors are failing inside your silverado instrument cluster. I see this very often in GM trucks, to fix the problem you need to have your instrument cluster rebuilt.

Check out this article that talks more about it http://drspeedometer.com/chevy-silverado-instrument-clusters-why-they-quite-working

Thanks,
Fred

Tachometer stopped working then the speedometer now the service engine comes on randomly and there is a strange noise when starting the blazer and sometimes it almost seems as though it is not going to...


The speedometer and tachometer problem on your Trailblazer instrument cluster is very common on the 03-06 models. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and can be fixed. Check out this page for more on how to get it fixed - Trailblazer tachometer problems

1999 cadillac deville speedometer is not working. All other gauges are working.


Most likely your Instrument Cluster contains Electronic "Stepper Motors" on all Needle Indicators. If this is the case, you should consult the Factory Website to detrermine if this is the case. I have replaced many in my 2004 Chevrolet Silverado which has 6 Stepper Motors. These typically exhibit erratic indications prior to total failure. The first to go was the Speedometer followed by Oil Pressure and eventually Temperature, Voltmeter and Tachometer. Obviously your vehicle is no longer covered under warranty. I strongly suggest that you find a Speedometer repair facility and have it checked professionally.

Both speedometer & tachometer not working, both reading wrong.


There was a recent class action law suit settled with GM for this exact problem. You can google gm speedometer lawsuit and get lots of information. Unforutunately for most people I think the warranty was limited to 7 years and 70,000 miles. Which isn't a lot of miles for most people.

If you car isn't covered by the warranty there is a way to "reset" the speedometer.

You can turn the ignition slowly like you are going to start the engine. There is a very small "dead" space where you will see your guage lights go off.

What you want to do is cycle the ignition switch from off to that dead space. Each time you do it your stuck speedometer will move towards zero about 10 mph. So if its stuck on 40 you will have to cycle it at least 4 times.

At first you will probably actually hit the ignition and the engine will try to start.....just release it and try it again.

I know this because I have a 04 avalanche with 80,0000 miles and it has this problem about twice a month.
