My 2004 pontiac Aztek speedometer not working

My 2004 pontiac Aztek speedometer started to not read correctly. It is no longer at zero in park. In park it reads 10mph up to 25mph. Basically the mph is not reading correctly at park or while I'm driving. Any ideas?

    Since it's a '04, no cable, the speedometer's electronic motor is worn out, you'll need a new speedometer, or a good used one from a junk yard.

SOURCE: Speedometer Gauge Slipping - Inaccurate Reading

I had a car that did this to me. It started happening last year so I took it in and they were baffled. Lesson learned never take a car to a big chain store for a difficult diagnosis.They just told me to let my car warm up for 5 minutes and it would be fine. If I let it warm up it was good. This winter it started doing it again but it would do it all the time even after I let it warm up. I never bothered bringing it in again because it was dieing. If you are truly concerned take it into a mechanic ( a good one) and have them diagnose it. Your spedometer cable could just be wearing out.

My 2004 aztek will not shift out of park

Could be the brake light switch, or the shift lock solenoid.
You should be able to shift out of park by turning the key to the unlock position but not to "on". Make sure parking brake is set and crank in neutral.

When I park my car, a 2004 Aztek, it won't release the key. I have to start it up again and shift into other gears, then try it again. Sometimes it works, but sometimes not.

i would check the neutral safety switch, it will not release the key if it does not send the signal that the car is in park.

Speedometer reads 10mph faster than I am traveling. When I turn off truck or am at a stand still the speedometer reads 10mph. (2004 Avalanche)

Pretty common problem with these. Here's a guide to learn how to fix GM instrument clusters yourself, I used it to fix mine and it worked great.

Speedometer normally will read 25mph when ur doing 70. gas gage dont work at all light will come on tho. tach works. will read around the correct speed once in a while. it is a 2004 model year.

The speedometer is run by a small electric generator located at the transmision,the unit could be full of fluid or just worn out,either way it could need to be replaced.However with the other problems you are having first check the ground to the dash printed circuit as this may
be the culprit causing your problems as well!
