knock on the speedo meter a couple of times and it will return to normal and you may have to giggle the wiring harness to determine if there is a loose contact or such

SOURCE: Speedometer sticks and will not return to zero.

It sounds like the cable is sticking. You will probably need to replace it. You might attempt to put some oil in it, but it would probably only last for a short while if it even will solve the problem.

SOURCE: 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.

Why is speedometer sticking?


if the odometer does not stick, watch carefully , the 1/10s digit.
drive slow, no bumps when it sticks and watch ODOMeter
if odometer dont stick the needle side is, as all do this old.
for 90s cars, vast numbers stick and more every day
as owners hedge , gee $200 fix .or more.......
get a GPS speedo and use that, or glue on a cell phone holder
and use a free app, (GPS speed) to see speed.
there you go, all choices.
the cable has 2 ends.
head end if dead, the speedo and odometer stall.
the other end, has gear to trans tail shaft,
so it measures actually road wheel RPM and converts that to speed.
the cable can be broken on both end or the middle.
the bottom end can fail strip out or its gear go bad.
fixed them all, every which way but loose.
easy no? easypeasy-japaneezey
if the odometer freezes too, that means the cable end is bad.850403f4-cfb0-4822-8bea-bd0bef80f062.jpg

2005 S Isuzu Ascender Speedometer niddle moved all the way to the right of gage and as not moved.


If the odometer is working correctly, the problem is inside the speedometer head.
The speed sensor would be on the side of the transmission if the odometer is not working.

Speedometer works sometimes on 2004 yukon denali just replaced speed sensor


you need to tighten the cable that comes from the odometer to the drivetrain ... they sometimes become loose from vibration... this should fix it...



good luck

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.

Why does my 03 yukon xl speedometer gradually flats to 0 while driving. it does not stall. it does it at least 1 a month specially in long trips or high speeds. when i arrive to destination it cools off...


It is probable that the cable for the speedometer is streached and your MPH reading is incorrect all or most of the time, get a friend to drive behind you at say 55 MPH so you will know the odometer reading ( may prevent speeding ticket )
All metal expands when heated and contracts as it cools. Your cable becomes slack when hot. Stay Safe!

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
