I have a hard time believing the tranny is shot after only 55,000 miles. Get it up on jacks and start it with you under the car and someone else shifting. The linkage could be completely out of adjustment. (The speedo thing is strange though.)

If the linkage appears to be the problem, and is sloppy and loose, there you are. But if not, you may need to rebuild it. But I would get a second opinion from a well known smaller shop where the owner works there and is known for honesty.

Speedometer not working in a 1999 chevy trailblazer


Is this an analog or digital speedo? If analog, three possibilities come to mind: 1. broken speedo cable; 2. broken speedo head assembly: broken speedo drive gear in the transmission final drive/output shaft area. If digital, could be many things.

Have you checked transmission fluid recently. If the levels are low and/or if the dipstick smells burnt, there is a good chance your transmission is shot. Check it out & let me know; may have another idea if the fluid level checks out.

I have a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer with a malfunctioning tachometer and speedometer. What is the likely part I need to replace?


Sounds like a bad speedometer sensor. Usually located on the transmission. The only way to fix the speedometer is to replace the sensor.
The Variable Speed Sensor (VSS) has failed. You will have to get it replaced. Both are driven by an electrical signal sent to the cars computer by the VSS, and converted to SPEED, and DISTANCE driven.

Hello: The cluster failure on 2003 thru 2005 is very high. The proper way to repair is to replace the cluster, then mileage and engine hours(if equipped) has to be reset Then the cluster has to be programmed. I have a 2003 Silverado w/17000 miles that my wife bought for me new and it has had 5 clusters. (I' a retired GM cadillac technician)

For the stalling issue, the throttle body needs to be cleaned, grime in this area prevents the throttle plate from closing completely and allowing air to enter, making the air/fuel mixture lean.
The dead speedometer could be a bad stepper motor in the instrument cluster or a bad speed sensor on the transmission. If the cruise control is not working, the problem is most likely the speed sensor.

I looked down and the speedometer in my 05 Trailblazer said I was going 120 mph. When I stopped and put the car into park, the speedometer stuck at 70 mph. I need a simple, cost effective solution. Please...


This is a very common problem with Trailblazers and is caused by a fault speedometer stepper motor - the actual motor that makes your needle move around is wearing out.

You have two solutions, if your Trailblazer has 70k miles or less you can take it to your local Chevy dealer and they will replace it for you as part of a recall.

If you have over 70k miles visit my Trailblazer speedometer page here: http://drspeedometer.com/services-i-offer/trailblazer-speedometer-repair
