My speedometer on my 2005 Buick rendezvous starts off on zero and then shoots up to 110 when I am at a complete stop. I have changed the speed sensor module and checked the fuses. What else could it b


What module did you replace ? Was the vehicle transmission shifting OK ? The gauge is controlled by a stepper motor inside the instrument cluster , GM had bad stepper motors 03 to 06 .That is probably your problem .

Speedometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed as determined by the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM). The ECM/PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4,000 pulses/mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit (4,000 pulses/mile), class 2 message from the ECM/PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. If the IPC detects a malfunction in the vehicle speed signal circuit from the ECM/PCM, the IPC uses the class 2 message from the EBCM, indicating the vehicle speed as a backup. If the speedometer reaches (108 mph) the fuel will shut-off, and it will turn back ON when the speedometer is at (106 mph). The speedometer displays either miles or kilometers as requested by the activation of the english/metric button on the driver information center (DIC). The associated indicator (km/h or mph) illuminates.

Where is the speed sensor located on a 2003 buick rendezvous


Why ? speedometer not working ? Does the vehicle shift correctly ? The VSS - vehicle speed sensor is an input to the PCM - engine computer > Speed info is sent from the PCM to the microprocessor in the instrument cluster over the class 2 serial data bus . 2003 - 2006 GM vehicles had bad step motors in the instrument cluster . Step motors control gauge position. The VSS is located on the transmission case Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
Lower right rear of the engine compartment, mounted to the right side of the transaxle.

Speedometer reads 100mph when you are only doing 60mph


Your speedometer is registering kph instead of mph. It can be changed the by the metric/sae button on your dashboard.

My odometer is showing KMs and the speedometer is showing twice the speed on my 2006 Pontiac G6


There is a setting in the driver information panel for English or Metric units. Change this to English and you will see MPH on Speedometer and Miles on Odometer.

I was pushing the buttons looking at how much time till oil change and noticed my speedometer was now showing KM instead of mph? it is in metric or something? can not get it back to MPH and did not get a...


If I'm not mistaking on that model if you hold the trip/reset button while the odometer is on the miles ( not trip a or b) for a few seconds it should go back to mph. Let me know if this helps. Chevy's can be done a couple ways. But I think for yours this is it.

Just put a new steering column in 92 buick regal to fix wiring problems for turn signals and brake lights but now my spedometer is in kph instead of mph!! how do I change it back??


Hi!!
Check on the instrument cluster for a switch labeled English/Metric, pressing that switch will change the display back to miles.

Speedometer is going to fast


Does your car have a english/metric switch or option in the settings of the DIC? You may have it set on metric, which will cause the speedo to read killometers instead of mph.

Speedometer


THE SPEEDOMETER OR THE ODOMETER? THE SPEEDO TELLS YOU HOW FAST YOU ARE GOING AND ODOMETER READS THE MILAGE OR KILOMETERS TRAVELED.
IF YOU MEAN THE ODOMETER THEN THE CAR IS PROBABLY FROM CANADA AND CAN NOT BE CHANGED. I'VE RUN INTO THIS BEING NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER.
I AM NOT SHURE IF YOU CAN CHANGE OVER TO A NEW CLUSTER (INSTRUMENT PANEL) LEGALLY OR NOT. CALL YOUR LOCAL D.M.V. AND THEY CAN TELL YOU. THE MILAGE WOULD HAVE TO BE CONVERTED AND THEN THE MILAGE STORED IN THE ENGINE/TRANS. COMPUTER WOULD NOT MATCH THE ODOMETER READING. SORRY HOPE YOU CAN FIND A SOLUTION IF YOU NEED TO.
IF YOU MEAN THE SPEEDOMETER THE THERE IS A ENGLISH/METRIC BUTTON TO PUSH TO CHANGE THE DISPLAY. GOOD LUCK..
