Either the gauge is bad, the cable is kinked or the speedometer connector is bad...at the tranny.

If your speedo is that far off, check your alternator. Go to Autozone for a free scan. I have seen it before.

If the speed error was an exaggeration and it is less, when someone puts different wheels and tires on a vehicle these things happen. Check for a tire label on a doorjam and then see what you have.

If no luck, some really good tire stores can reprogrammed speedos because of tire changes.

If you need a different speedo, try a Salvage yard.

check rim sizes and tires fitted as they may be smaller than the speedo sender is gear ed for
smaller dia. tires = faster speedo reading as the speedo reads off drive shaft speed

Speedometer off


Over the years I have had many complaints of the speedometer being inaccurate, few times has it actually been the case, about 5% I would say. You can have the speeds checked for accuracy by any dealer using a known good vehicle speedometer pace car, done the test dozens of times. Normal speedo accuracy is plus or minus 3 MPH.

Speedometer not registering correct speed.


Has to be calibrated on a rolling road with the correct software ,or you have the wrong size tyres fitted ,they are low profiles making the wheels go round faster in relation to the speedo calibration

Speedometer stuck at 60 mph 1986 pontiac fiero


Have you replaced the speed sensor? Also I still think you need to have the stepper motor replaced in the speedo head. A bench test is not reliable for this type of instrument.

Speedometer on 1999 maxima wrong, faster you go the farther off. approx. 20 mph faster at 60 mph. replaced vss.


do you have aftermarket wheel on the car?? bigger wheels can cause speed signal failure resulting in speedo acting up. different size tires will have different circumference causing speedo issues.

Boss has 2005 Yukon, says speedometer shows random numbers (ie, 40 mph while stopped or 40 mph when doing 60. Intermittent problem sometimes fine.) Any helpful hints appreciated.


The speedo in electronic and can have various circuit board problems. I've had to cars with erratic speedos and in both cases the dealer said replace them and big buck bills. I found a shop that repairs them and charges $100 buck and free shipping back. About a 4 day turnaround.

When i accelarate the speedometer goes to 35 mph and stops. the faster you go, the speedometer drops below 35 mph.


the sppedometer gets a signal from the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission. The speedo cluster then converts that signal nd sends it to the speedo & odometer and to the enine computer. I suspect you have a bad speedo head. Does the odomter record correctly?

Buy a used speeo on Ebay for a good price. Analog (needle) or digital (numbers)?

Speedometer


The speedo is electronic and has failed, you will need to have it repaired by an authorized GM repair shop that does GM electronics, this is not the dealer, they will send it out and charge 2X, send it out for repair yourself, bypass the dealer.
