If there was a recall the dealer would have told u, they are required by law, so most likely the problem is not under any type of free program, I don't know what work needs to be done exactly, without the labor time and the parts that need to be replaced I can't advise if the cost is high or otherwise.

    The dealer said we should have received something from GM but we did not, we always pay attention to stuff like that. I guess now that the truck is way over the 70,000 mile mark she said there hands are tied and it can not be replaced free. Therefore, like $500.....which we just don't have extra right now. The funny thing is the truck was just in for the Hub bearing warranty because of some noise, they replaced it again and then here we go two weeks later the speedometer quits, I think it looks fishy actually that something went wrong after being at the dealership but maybe we were just lucky it took this long to happen like everyone else posted a few years back of the problem. Oh well what to do...

    I see 100's of complaints about the electronic speedo's no working, so it is a fairly common problem.

Speedometer doest work how do i fix


You dont have to replace the cluster. Just replace the stepper motors. They are not difficult to do. I replace three of them and all the light bulbs in my 2004 gmc just yesterday ,, It took me three hrs from start to finish. The light bulbs are more difficult to replace than the stepper motors. Stepper motors are available on e bay for 6 bucks.

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.

Speedometer is stuck on 60 mph but still moves with speed


That is the pits because you will need a new dash cluster. We just did one in ours.
