This happened to my 2001 Regal... There is a factory recall on the Catalytic Converter going bad. I had mine replaced with the recall and haven't had a problem since

SOURCE: speedometer is 5 mph off.

Most speedometers are off by a few miles per hour even when new, this is normal
but yours could be caused by putting different size tires on the car check the owners manual for correct size tires

SOURCE: speedometer surging. actual speed 40 mph,

Its a loose connection on the speedo cable. its a b*tch to get to. I had the same problem on my truck, it would fluctuate in 5th gear on the highway. i spent the money and had a professional do it.

SOURCE: ABS light & brake light on, problems with speedo working properly

The rear wheel speed sensor is the most common problem on those trucks and will do what you are talking about. It is located at the top of the rear axle in the center. It picks up it's signal from a tone ring on the diff inside! If a tranny input or output sensor is bad then the tranny won't shift properly!

SOURCE: Speedometer stuck at 20 miles an hour?

My 96 did the same thing. The speed sensor is and was fine -- the problem is an open circuit in the wires inside the gauge itself.

The Chilton's manual has pretty good instructions on how to replace the instrument cluster. You can buy just the speedometer gauge, or an entire instrument cluster for $100 or so on eBay. Just be sure you get a cluster that matches your model and trim line -- the LX and DX have different clusters, and of course the automatic and the 5-speed are different as well.


Do be sure to disconnect the battery before you begin the project, as there's a (slim) chance you can discharge the airbags if you don't

install a spedometer with kilometer markings or manualy paint markings on at proper locations. 88 kph = 55 mph, etc.

How do I change my Speedometer from MPH to KPH


If it's digital there's a button somewhere I'm sure. However if it's a printed read out, then the cluster has to be changed over...however it should also read both. This is a common issue for service men bringing vehicles back from Europe as did I in 1998. Hope this helps !

Car accelerates without pressing gas pedal


I had a similar problem with a K5 Blazer, where the gas pedal had a plastic pivot point in the linkage. After about 60K miles, the pivot developed a burr that locked the gas pedal open and kept the vehicle about 60 MPH. If I kicked the pedal to knock it off the burr, it would then slow down. Try it...

I have a 1991 buick park ave ultra


your car is suffering from a faulty speed sensor. it works by using a signal generator in the transmission that creates an electrical signal in relationship to vehicle speed. This information is processed by the vehicle’s computer for engine and transmission management and provides the signal for the body computer that controls the speedometer. If the speed sensor itself fails then this might be the reason behind your problems. in addition, another cause of this may be that harness my be loose connecting to the transmission or behind the speedometer. there are multiple pins connecting behind the speedometer, and sometimes when one of those pins are not properly connected it gives a problem like yours.
