Sounds like you may have to replace the speedo unit. It sounds like there is a problem with resistance in the printed circuit. It can be repaired, but it is cheaper to replace.

How to reset your speedometer & tach on a 2005 Pontiac Montana.


If your 2005 Pontiac Montana's speedometer and tachometer does reset back to zero after you shut it off, put you ignition switch on and off until it resets. You might have to do this again after a few trips until it is permanently reset. The speedometer & tach will act up sometimes when your battery was run down or disconnected and has not been used for awhile.

I have 2 questions. First of all I just got a 2005 Chevy Impala and the speedometer works when it wants to. I noticed that when I turn the key in the ignition the speedometer goes down and eventually will...


As for the first problem it could be a speed sensor in the transmission. Do you have a check engine light on? You need to drive it with a scanner on it to check the speed sensor. If the sensor is reading fine but the speedo doesn't read right you likely need to replace the cluster. As for the second problem, this is a common one on the 4t65E trans. You need to replace the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid.

Hi, I think 2 things have happened. 1st, when your oil was changed, the technician did not reset the oil life back to 100%. This can be done by turning the key on, without starting the engine, consistantly push the accelerator to the floor fully, 3 times. At the last time, the oil life should reset to 100%. The other issue sounds like a different size tire may have been installed, causing the speedometer to read incorrect. A dealer should be able to reprogram the computer to accept the correct size tire, therefore making the speedometer read correctly. This should not be an issue, unless the current tire size is not accepted in the computer, at this point, you ned to change to the correct size tire, or realize you may be off on the speedometer, and accomodate for your speed accordingly. Good luck...Coop

2003 chrysler town & country speedometer stuck


sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster) into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then further diagnostic will be needed.
