You have a failed control panel PC board. Three yrs ago, we had ours replaced on the 2004 Suburban that we bought used. We took it to a dealer to be repaired. We ended up not paying for the repair because it was a factory recall that we didn't know about when we bought the vehicle.

Why does speedometer read 65, when I'm only doing about 35?


Circuit/System Verification
Important: If the suspect gage is the speedometer, the drive wheels of the vehicle must be raised and the transmission must be placed in drive or first gear.
  1. Ignition ON, with the scan tool, perform the IPC Gage Sweep Test in the IPC Output Controls. Verify that all gage dials move from minimum to the maximum value and back to the gage minimum value.
  2. ?‡'
    If the gage does not perform the IPC Gage Sweep Test, replace the IPC.

  3. Start the engine, with the vehicle drive wheels raised and place the transmission in drive or first gear. Verify that the speedometer value matches the scan tool Vehicle Speed parameter in the ECM/PCM Engine Data List.
?‡'
If the speedometer is incorrect, test or replace the IPC.

My rpm gage is not working, my speedometer is not working, my gas gage is not working, and my oil gage is not working, and my temperature gage is not working pretty much when i start up my car and drive it...


I'd wager that the fuse that controls the gauges is shot, or one of the internal connectors got unplugged (Fuse sounds more likely). Radio, Lights, and Turn Lamps are usually on seperate circuits.

My speed gage is moving wierd it is getting stuck sometimes. Works fine at times then sometimes I will go about 50 and it will get **** and when I stop it is **** on 50, the rpm gage is also doing it


your vehicle has sensors located in the wheel hub that provide data to the speedometer/tach, possibly a bad sensor or if youve had brakes done recently, they may have been compromised during repairs---it is easy to test for with the corrrect diagnostic experts

I have a 99 cougar and speedometer and the odometer are not workig properly car reving faster then the rpm is reading as well as speedometer?


replace VSS. Vehicle Speed Sensor if it not working properly, all sensor fail soon or later. RPM majority of the time will be faulty wiring from your distributor. check make sure there is no oil leakage into you distributor, it will also create a short contact to the reading. You can try to clean the distributor sensor. if plan to replace, get one from junk yard. Or you can put after market rpm gage which they also make.

it sounds like you are getting a surge of voltage from your alternator/generator. Very strange.

the dealer can run a diagnostic test & pull fault codes or you can try this. If this helps, please report back & rate as fixya. Thanks. I am curious what you find as root cause. Good luck.

Instrument Cluster Self-Diagnostic Mode
To enter the instrument cluster self diagnostic mode with the engine off, depress and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position and hold until the gauges sweep (within five to eight seconds). Depress the reset button once to advance to each stage of the self-test.
Turn the ignition to the OFF position to exit the instrument cluster self-diagnostic mode. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
