Question about 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe

Where can i find the speedometer cable and sensor?

I've been driving with under sized tires and noticed, first of course the speedometer was 5 mph slower than the actual speed. Then recently the speedometer started sticking during acceleration. Now the speedometer doesn't work at all (at 80mph it shows 20mph or nothing at all). Where can i find the speedometer sensor?

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 www.gmspeedometerrecall.com to see if you qualify.

It is probably the speedometer. Check on ebay for a guy from Winona, MN. who repairs these. He does a great job.

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.

What to replace if the speedometer on suzuki grand vitara doesn't work?


Hi Yrivera, Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. I think you'll find that one or more of the speed sensors are defective. You may have noticed that the ABS light is also on. If the vehicle is an older model (you didn't tell us much about the car) it may be the gearbox sender unit or on a vehicle which is older still, a broken cable. Regards John

2003 GMC Yukon speedometer indicates less than actual speed by 30% - 60%.


Do you have after market tires that are larger than stock ? This will affect your speedometer.Another thing could be the speedometer gear which is easy and cheap. Its at the end of your speedometer cable inside of transfer case.

Well i'm going 60 mph but my speedometer read 70 plus for avery mile that i travel the meter read 1 1/3 so my car is gona hit 1k if i still friving like that?


In most cars especially those older models, the speed sensor for the speedometer is located in the transmission. Check for physical wear on the cable that leads from the transmission to the back of the dashboard. If you have increased the size of the tires dramatically, the actual car speed would be slower then the speedometer. Either the components responsible for measuring speed (speed cable, dashboard, speedsensor) is damaged or tire size or transmission parts or the transmission itself was replaced.

Do oversized tires alter the speedometer. The speedometer stated i was going 65 and the state police clocked me at 79 mph.


Most certainly does
You need a different gear in the trans or transfer case,that drives the speedo
Now if the speed sensor is the output,then you will need help. I personally do not know, if a scan tool can reprogram the ecm/bcm etc, to correct for the tire change.

Ask that question next.

The speedo in my 95 mustang Gt Is 10 miles an hour fast


A vehicle speed sensor that is starting to fail could cause this, or less than likely bad wiring or connections, or yes, a bad cluster could do this... But how exactly did she notice the speedometer was 10MPH fast?? There are no real accurate speedometers in vehicles (Don't get me wrong they shouldn't be off by 10MPH) but there is a 5 or so percent difference high or low in many vehicles even with stock powertrains. I've plugged in with a diagnostic scanner on many vehicles and the dash speedo shows 60MPH, but the electronic speed readout on the scanner reads as low as 55MPH or as high as 65MPH

Speedometer is 5 mph off.


Most speedometers are off by a few miles per hour even when new, this is normal
but yours could be caused by putting different size tires on the car check the owners manual for correct size tires

2009 Pontiac Vibe speedometer inaccurate


Because pontiac vibe is a toyota matrix clone and both are made in two different places/countries I guess pontiac ( better looking one - new model :) has different size tires . Speedometer is calibrated to standard size tires . If you have smaller or bigger you will see some differences. Of course it may be few other things but let's start with the simplest one. Good luck
