Electrical issue


Sounds like a poor connection at the battery or alternator. You need to make sure there is no corrosion or faults in these connections. If there is no fault there then you likely have a ground problem. Find your engine/Chassis ground, make sure it's tight and again free from corrosion and fault. Leaking battery acid can eat wires on the possitive and ground causing issues. Also if the car has been in an accident it could also have damaged or lossened the ground.

2003 vibe shudders above 60 mph


first, don't go 60 mph. next, are your lug nuts tight, wheels may need balanced. check front end tie-rods, idler arm, etc., this is unsafe, have your local mechanic check it out for you, make sure your lug nuts are on tight first.

1997 Buick LeSabre speedometer, eratic operation reads faster than speed actually going, analog electronic unit. How do I repair and access it.


A reliable fix would be to send the cluster out for repair, if in fact the problem lies in the speedo head. There is a bulletin for this car that states that at 20mph the speedo can be + or - 4 mph inaccurate, and its normal operation.
I suggest first having the alternator tested. The VSS on this car produces an AC voltage signal. The alternator also produces AC voltage, which is converted to DC before it is output to the cars electrical system. If any AC voltage is leaking from the alternator, it can interfere with the VSS signal, and cause the speedo to read higher, or even show that the car is moving when sitting still.

Speedometer works sometimes ok, then at times it becomes very eratic bounceing from 10-30 mph over what i am actually doing


Check the mounting on the cable and make sure it's not kinked somewhere. One side is connected behind the gauges in the dash, and the other is on your transmission. Usually a black cable, can be seen protruding from the firewall. (engine compartment wall, between dash and engine)

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.

2009 Pontiac Vibe speedometer inaccurate


Because pontiac vibe is a toyota matrix clone and both are made in two different places/countries I guess pontiac ( better looking one - new model :) has different size tires . Speedometer is calibrated to standard size tires . If you have smaller or bigger you will see some differences. Of course it may be few other things but let's start with the simplest one. Good luck
