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.

My speedometer only works part of the time. Is there a fix for this?


i have a 2005 monte carlo 3.4 v6 auto with overdrive. i recently replaced the whole cluster because the tach and speedometer was reading crazy.i bought one at a salvage yard installed it and have had no problems for several months.now unfortunatly i am ee=xperiencing the speedometer dropping speed all of a sudden and then it will go to zero and not change at all.the only thing i can think of is the fact that i installed a set of 18 inch wheels and the same day my speedometer started the crazy stuff.so if you have the wrong size tires or wheels i assume that this is the problem.the computer is reading something wrong and the speedometer is responding to this.i hope i have helped you.

Defective tachometer and speedometer


Do the following:1)key in the ON position:remove the 7.5 gauge fuse.Tach needle should read "0:". 2)put it back,go on the engine and unplug the green plug on the igniter -the big one,with 5 or 6 wires on it.The needle on tach reading should be zero.If not you have a short circuit on the black wire between that plug and the plug on the conbination meter.3) If the reading is zero with the plug disconnected,the black wire for the tach is short-circuited inside the igniter. I have one available.email daddykouki@gmail.com
