Just got done fixing this problem today. your instrument cluster is starting to go bad (the plastic housing holding the gears that control the needles are breaking and jamming the gears). i bought a used one on www.everdrive.com for $177.99 with a 3 year warranty on it. shipping was overnight (VA/NC to NY).

You will have to buy an instrument cluster. You can get a remanufactured one. You will need the number off the back of the old one. This ensures you get the proper one because you can't return it if you get the wrong one. You will have to buy another one.

Speed sensor failed. can i replace it


Sure you can if a mechanic can do it so can you if you have the right tools and knowlege. First you need to know which one thers's one at each whell at the fround rear end housingf the rear rear end housing and the one in the side of the transfer case where the speedometer cable would'of connected on an older model and then theors three in the sides of the trans mission, Touque converter speed forward turbine speed output turbine speed. What proble are you trying to fix? the speedometer not working? Abs light on? Cheack engine light on? Cruise control not working? If the cruise control does work the speed senser is good and the check engine light will be on if the speed senser is'nt working. If the speed senser is'nt working the car will only take off in low and not shift to seecond or any higher gear as the computer doesn't know how fast the car is going. If the speedometer is'nt working and it does shift and cruise and the check engine light is'nt on then the speed senser is working but the speedometer is'nt if it is'nt and everything else is woring then as your driving hit the speedometer with your fist and see if it comes back on they can get stuck and i've fixed quite a few and they stayed fixed. On to wheel drive models with the rear wheels jacked off the ground safty I've run the car up to speed and trying wiggleing the wires and connectors till I wiggled the right thing till the speedometer came on ( including smacking the speedometer ) Just don't hit it too hard as it'll bust just like anything else.

I was driving my car and all of a sudden my speedometer was going crazy. then the check engine light came on following the speedometer problem. Do you have ANY idea what would be cao=using that ? AND/OR...


some kind of computer or speed sensor fault. Please get a scan to help us diagnose.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

My speedometer reading is way off and now is stuck at 220.


Sound's like your speed sensor from your transmission has gone bad, I am guessing you have a standard transmission?? Easy fix and can get the part's at most parts store or transmission shop. 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

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


This is most likely not a speed sensor problem, I see this a lot on 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters and it's always the same. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and it can be fixed. Check out this page for more about how to get it fixed - cavalier speedometer fix
