$400? wow. When things get "whacky" with the guages, replace your ignition switch. NOT the switch your key goes into, it's located on the bottom of the steering column. Need to remove the plastic skirt that coveres the steering wheel column.

There was not a recall, but there was a class action settlement where GM agreed to extend the warranty on certain vehicles for this problem. I don't think the Envoy is covered, but you can check www.gmspeedometerrecall.com to see if you qualify.

SOURCE: my gas gauge & speedometer gave out on my 2004...

Yes there is a recall for erratic gauge readings. They will supply new instrument cluster and labor to install it at no charge to you. Tell the service writer that your gauges only work sometimes and they'll help you out. worked for me!!!

Check the fuses first for a blown fuse. May have a bad headlight switch or shorted ignition switch.

Dashboard is dead


hello Sylvia i think you have had your dash board taken out at some
stage previous to your owning it, there is a big electrical connector
that hooks up to the printed circuit board behind your dash. you will
need to get a techy to pull off the plastic masks around your dash
and unscrew the speedo console. we used to get alot of this fault
here in New Zealand when sellers of vehicles were clocking the
speedo's to show a lower mileage reading on the odometer, very
nasty.

2004 speed monitor indace cluster


If you experiencing issue with gauges not resetting, for example, speedometer shows speed above 120 mph while car standing still, it's quite common problem in 2004 Tahoes. You have few options:
- go to dealership and replace the cluster (a lot of money)
- search internet and find a shop to repair cluster. Since the problem is quite common, there are many options. Will cost much less then dealership
- if you are comfortable with soldering gun - buy replacement motors on Amazon, disassemble dashboard, remove cluster, replace motors. This is the cheapest option - about $35 and hour and a half of your time to replace all motors in cluster.
- last option is for people who don't like spending money (and fixing issue too), put car on emergency break, shift in gear, turn key to start engine. With every attempt gauges will reset by a bit. Repeat until gauges go all the way to zero.

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy XUV that I bought new and at 96,000 miles my speedometer started going crazy. Now at 140,000 miles it only works on occassion. Usually it reads 50-70mph parked in the garage. My...


if it auto transmission , the ratio changes and the speedo reading is affected by the VSS sensor ( around $100 from reports)
if the transmission is running well other than that it will not need a transmission just and transmission oil change
suggest that you find an accredit professional transmission shop and have a proper diagnosis done
