Disconnect the posative terminal then touch the terminal to the posative a few times quickly it will reset your odometer needle to above the resting pin. This happens because you moved your posative terminal and the needles spun around and sat on the wrong side of the pin.
You most likely have a bad servo motor inside the cluster which is what actually moves the speedometer needle. Similar servos also move the rest of the needles in the other gauges. I see this type of failure fairly often and the fix is to remove the cluster and have it sent out for repairs. There are several companies that can do this but I usually take the ones I encounter to my local GM dealer and have them send it out. I prefer to have the one that came out of the vehicle fixed and returned rather than exchanged but either method will work fine. Most places will replace all the servo's and bulbs. Haven't seen one fail again after being repaired. Hope this helps you find your problem!
Yes there is a recall for the instrument cluster gauges not working properly or sticking.Call your dealer and they will ask for your vehicle identification number.What they do is put this number in there computer and they will tell you if you have any open recalls on your vehicle.If you have less than 70k miles this will cost you nothing.But if it is over 70k then you will get the cluster free but have to pay for labor.The recall number is 07187C.Good luck.
the speedo is electronic, not cable, this problem is caused by a sticking stepper motor that moves the needle, a stepper motor is a miniature electric motor that can move and hold one position, this was a common problem at the dealer I worked at, u will need to pull the speedo and send it out for repair, I use the following link for this service. http://www.dnaspeedometers.com/
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
