    Speedometer does not drop to zero when stopped or ignition off, alternator gauge sometimes works (sets on zero) and sometimes show 19 volts.

The speed sensor on your trans sends a signal to the electronics telling it when to shift, this will be where you fault is.

03 Chevy trailblazer stops accelerating on highway. Then bearly moves and shuts off constantly. Gas gauge goes up and down under 1/4 tank. Is this a fuel problem. Help!!

Without testing we'd only be guessing . Hooking up a factory or a professional type scanner , an checking engine sensor data parameters , checking fuel pressure an flow , basic electrical system testing - battery condition , charging system output testing etc.... GM did have instrument cluster problems , late 90's - mid 2000's . Stepper motor's inside the cluster that drive the gauge needles , an silver migration . Can cause all kind of electrical issues , battery draining over night , starting problems ,warning lights coming on etc....

You got lucky before , their is no reset for gas gauge . The sending unit in the gas tank is needing to be replaced or the gas gauge . GM vehicles had bad stepper motors in the instrument cluster from 2003 to 2006 . Testing to find out which is the problem .

GM vehicles From 2003 to 2006 had insturment cluster problems , the motors that drive the gauges , (Stepper motors ) Plus you need to know the complexity of the electronic's on your vehicle . There is a serial data communication network that the module's share info.on . GM class 2 serial data buss . The temp. sensor is an input to the PCM - engine computer , the PCM sends this info to the insturment cluster over the data network ,the insturment cluster has a microprocessor with logic programmed inside . All it take's is for one module , in your case ,sounds like the insturment cluster having problems an bring down the data network . This can cause all kind of electrical problems . Even not starting . If you know nothing of automotive electronics your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop. Without the proper diagnostic tools an service repair info. You probably won't be able to do anything to fix it. Need a professional type scan tool to view data .

My speedometer stopped working and i replaced the speed sensor still not working

What make , model an year vehicle ? your gauge is probably bad ! The vehicle speed sensor is an input to the PCM / ECM - engine computer . All vehicles after 1996 have some kind of a serial data communication network that all modules talk on ,even the instrument cluster ! The PCM sends speed info . to the instrument cluster . Google automotive serial data bus communication network . GM had problems with the stepper motor in their clusters , but so have other car makes . If you would have taken it to a ASE certified repair shop you would wasted your money on a VSS - vehicle speed senor you didn't need .

I need to know how to fix my electrical issue,the cluster,door locks and power windows don't work

GM had bad stepper motors inside the instrument cluster,2003 to 2006 . These stepper motors control the gauge needles . Sounds like you have a few different problems . Instrument cluster has nothing to do with the A/C , radio , windows , locks . One possibility mite be that they all share a common ground . Do you know what wiring diagrams are ? How to read an use one ,along with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test automotive electrical circuit's ?

Did you have the vehicle control modules checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ? Not going to a part's store an having it checked . Need to have a professional type scan tool hooked up , check code's in the BCM - body control module , the instrument cluster can also have DTC'S stored . Auto part stores can not check these code's .Viewing engine sensor data to the PCM to see what the real temp. is . Coolant temp. sensor is an input to the PCM/ECM - engine computer , this info is sent to the instrument cluster over the class 2 serial data network .Do you know what a automotive communication network is ? Plus GM had stepper motor problems in their instrument cluster's from 2003 to 2006 . The stepper motor is what controlls that needle .

Ignition switch??? temperature guage not working- sending unit keeps blowing, also dash lights will sometimes go out. and when car is running, tilt the wheel down semi hard and will shut car off!! also...

Do you have a professional scanner ,do a scan of the whole vehicle . Instrument cluster , BCM , etc... Not OBD2 scan from autozone or advance etc.... thier tool can't check the whole vehicle network . The control module's on your vehicle all share information on what is called a serial data bus ,or communication network. ( temperature guage not working- sending unit keeps blowing, ) I don't think the sending unit is the problem , an it's not a sending unit . It's a engine coolant temperature sensor ,an it's a input to the PCM/ECM - engine computer . The engine computer send's this info. to the instrument cluster on the GMLAN data network . GM had problem's with stepper motors in the instrument clusters . The stepper motor control's the gauge needle.2003 to 2006

Also sounds like you have wiring harness issue's ,finding an viewing wiring diagrams an using a DMM - digital multi-meter to test affected circuit's is the way to a fix. Not guessing !

Speedometer doest work how do i fix

You dont have to replace the cluster. Just replace the stepper motors. They are not difficult to do. I replace three of them and all the light bulbs in my 2004 gmc just yesterday ,, It took me three hrs from start to finish. The light bulbs are more difficult to replace than the stepper motors. Stepper motors are available on e bay for 6 bucks.
