I just had mine go bad in my 2004 xl.... I called the company and they said if its within 70-80 thousand miles they will assist... Mine has 86000 and they basically said "your screwed!" I have 6 kids and can't afford a 550.00 speedo that shouldnt be a burden on me... With a vehicle as nice as a denali xl it should be taken care of!!!!!!!!! This is rediculous!

    I have investigated this problem to the nth degree. If you would like a solution, the stepper motors will need to be replaced. Many of the sites recommend that you ship your dashboard display to some unknown site and pay between $180-500. I have found an expert who charges only $100 which includes repair of the cluster including replacement of one of the stepper motors. He gives a 2 year warranty, and if any of the motors require replacement during the 2 year period, he will replace the motor at a charge of only $10.00 per motor. I personally had only one motor malfunction and I paid $100.00. He came to my house and was done in 30 minutes. I would highly recommend his service and he is very reliable. If you are interested in
    his service please contact me at

The instrument clusters are common to fail. there are several companies rebiulding them, Call your dealer or auto repair shop, I;m sure they can send it off for you.

Speedometer not working properly

There was not a recall, but there was a class action settlement where GM agreed to extend the warranty on certain vehicles for this problem. Check to see if you qualify.

When it is cold the speedometer want work right

This is a common issue on these electronic speedo's, pull it out and send it to a GM authorized electronics repair facility, don't go through the dealer they will double the bill and send it out to the same place as you will, call them for the name and number.

I had the same problem with my 2004 yukon. It seems all the gauges in the insturment cluster are known to go bad from 2003-2006 in GMC and Chevys. The deaerships are trying to sell you a new instrument cluster which is pretty costly if your warrenty is up. I repaired the circuit board on my insturment cluster myself and everything is working fine now. Since hearing abouth this problem I have started repairing the insturment cluster as a side business. If your vehicle is out of warrenty and your intersted shoot me an e-mail (
