Sounds like a classic case of a dead battery. It takes much less energy to sweep the gauges and turn on the lights than it does to crank the engine over. The clicking noise is usually your starter solenoid trying to engage and spin the starter. Try a new battery. Happy motoring.

Good luck.

you may have to take a magnet and put it over the speedometer needle and move the needle back to zero,this some times happens when a battery is connected as the voltage surge causes the needle to bounce some times to far and its not able to return to zero.you may need to have the system checked for proper charging,the voltage could be borderline causing the light to come on.you can try disconnecting the battery as it may reset the light.

How to fix a speedometer cable


Well you know it does not have a speedo cable since you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission.
My guess would be a problem with the speedo or cluster.

Why does my 2004 grand cherokee speedometer suddenly rests at 10 mph instead of 0


Somehow the cable and assembly for the speedometer has become dis calibrated for lack of a better word, U might want to check if the meter has a calibration adjustment on it and if so resetting it for zero with a still vehicle.

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.

Speedometer is stuck all the way around to zero and won't move


sounds like you may have several problems here, there is usually a transducer on the gearbox, this may be faulty, there is always fuses for most electrical items such as lights, the window motor may have a faulty motor or it could be the switch, try swapping switchs from a good window
