Instead of a cable, most vehicle's speedometers are controlled by a speed sensor at the tail of the transmission. These do go bad and would cause your speedometer to malfunction. They are not like light bulbs which just die, these sensors will kick in and out irregularly.Secondly you have a thin cable that is connected to your throttle in addition to the throttle cable itself. This second cable is for the kick-down of your transmission. It is utilized when you make a sudden pass of another vehicle to shift down one gear. This cable becomes misaligned at times and will, in a sense, become shortened. Try releasing it from the throttle cam and see how your vehicle reacts then. If it shifts correctly than you need a new kick-down cable.

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 can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine


Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.

Unknown Driver on my 2004 chevy Tahoe


Hi:
When your vehicle says : unknown driver, instead of Driver 1 or driver 2, you have had your battery totally dead. so dead that all the programming was lost, the part about not staying started, or not going into gear is a bit baffling, unless your alternator is the real problem, and the battery has just enough charge to barely start your truck, and may need to be fully charged first and stay running . You will need to do remote and seat reprogramming, when you get this figured out
