Yes if you replace your speedometer the odometer will have to be programmed. However, we can repair it for you or provide you with the parts to do it yourself. In which case no programming would be necessary. Click here to learn more about these silverado instrument cluster problems: Dr Speedometer Instrument Cluster Repair Speedometer Repair Guage...

Changed speed sensors in 03 silverado but speedometer still reads incorect?

I have a 2005 Silverado and around 75,000 miles the speedometer started malfunctioning. It would go to max speed, then everytime I started the engine it would step down about 5 mph until it finally reached normal. It would be ok for a while and then do it again. I found out there is a known problem with the speedometer. Depending on age of vehicle and mileage some of the repair cost is covered. You have to pull the whole dash unit and replace it. Dealer only, as they have to get a documented replacement with correct mileage. You may have a different problem but worth checking.

05 chevy silverado 1500 speedometer gets stuck sometimes on different speeds

The speedo is run by a stepper motor. GM had major problems with these. They extended the warranty to 7 yrs 80000 miles. If your over the mileage you can order a new stepper motor on e bay for about 6 bucks.

I am driving and some times the speedomitor will work and sometimes it would not work even if I driven the truck.

The 03 to 05 silverados were bad about this .. the speedometer motor is bad . you have to pull the dash out of it and replace the speedometer motor .. its kind of a picky job you have to remove all the neadles on the gauges and remove the face to get to the motor and unsolder it from the printed circuit board. and solder it back in .. this is the only way to fix your problem .. holler if you need help with this ..
