    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.

To add to last question i changed the radiator ,heater core water pump thermonstate 195' checked gauge it will peg out when u ground it im stumped

What make , model an year vehicle ! Ground what ? Most vehicle's from 96 on the coolant sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The info it gets from the temp sensor is sent on a serial data communication network to the instrument cluster . GM had bad stepper motors inside the instrument cluster . You like making parts stores rich too . Why don't you take it to a qualified repair shop ! Instead of thinking your a TECH .

Speedometer suddenly stopped. Don't know how fast I'm going. Help!

What make , model , an year ? Probably the instrument cluster is bad or the stepper motor that controls it ! The istrument cluster gets the speed info from the PCM - engine computer ! PCM sends a message over the serial data bus (communication network for modules ) > Does the vehicle shift gears good ? VSS - vehicle speed sensor is input to PCM for vehicle speed ! A professional grade scan tool would be used to check for VSS input to PCM an speed message to instrument cluster ! This is a short cut to diagnose problem . You best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop an have it diagnosed !

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 .

2003 Suburban speedometer doesn't work. Is there an easy fix to this problem or will I need to take it in to an auto repair shop?

Hello, this problem is due to a failing stepper motor. The stepper motor is the motor behind the gauge that controls the movement of the needle. When a stepper motor begins to go out it will cause the gauge needle to stick, skip around, stay at zero or max out on the gauge. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the stepper motor with a new one. While replacing one motor it is best to go ahead and replace them all as the others will go out in time as well. Your cluster will have one motor for each gauge. Here's a link to a page showing exactly how to replace a GM stepper motor and where to get the correct parts to do the job!

Speedometer not working chevy ss 2003

GM had gauge cluster problems from 2000-2005. Bad stepper motors. On those units you have to replace the cluster or rebuild it with new stepper motors.

My guages are extreme or not working at all, possible fuse?

Hello and welcome. the problem is with the dash cluster. the dash cluster will have to be replaced and reprogrammed. there is a special warranty for these dash clusters. gm will cover the repairs up to 80,000 miles
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 7 years or 70,000 miles (110,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.
Dealers are to replace the instrument panel cluster after the condition has been verified. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer.
For verified failures between 70,001 miles (110,001 km) and 80,000 miles (130,000 km) on U.S. vehicles, dealers are to provide the customer with an instrument panel cluster (IPC) only. Any additional costs, including labor to replace the instrument panel cluster, will be the responsibility of the customer. Dealers are responsible for the return of the customer's IPC back to the Electronic Service Center.

1998 trans am speed ometer not working but oldmeter works

Check your fuses and if all is good, your stepper motor to your speedometer has gone bad and will need to be replaced. Replacing the stepper motor is not that hard and cheaper them replacing the $500.00 instrument cluster. Look on Ebay for instrument cluster stepper motor, they go around $10.00.

Thank yo for using fixya and good luck

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.
