    2002 chevy cavalier. The speedometer isn't working at all...no matter how fast I'm going. The gas gage is also stuck , no matter the fuel level and the millage tracker doesn't work....it hasn't changed kilometer readings in over a week. Any idea what's going on???? The mechanic I brought it to said to go somewhere else.

    The gauges in my Chevy Caviler 2005 went haywire two months ago (35,000 miles). I took it to the mechanic and he stated that it is a common problem with some Chevy cars. I took it to the dealer last week and the diagnosis was malfunctioning of the panel cluster and the cost is over $500. I contacted Chevy Assistance Customer Center (866-790-5700) for help with the cost since it was a manufacturing defect. They told me that since there has been no a recall, they will not help with the cost. Customers who have the same problem should contact Chevy Customer Center. They refused to admit the defect. I am not surprised that Chevy is losing big. I will not buy their cars again.

    I have a 2006 Chevy Caviler. currently 65K miles. The gas gage stops working a few month ago. The speed meter stop working this month. The needle stays at 6 o'clock position. Thank God the mileage track is working and I use that to decide when to get gas.

    My speedometer quit working about a month after I bought the car. I did buy it used but still had a factory warranty that left about 3 weeks on it when I bought the car so of course the speedometer quit working after the warranty ran out. Can anyone suggest what to do.

    I have a 2005 Cavalier with 44,000miles.The gas gauge started sometimes going past the full mark at 26,000 miles.The speedometer and tach started acting strange shortly after. Currently the gas gauge is stuck 90 degrees past full,the speedometer is stuck at 45MPH and the tach sometimes moves but does not show the engine speed.It seems from reading the other postings this problem shows up shortly after the warranty runs out

Google used speed cluster. Buy one and have it installed. I found one for $112 shipped and installed for $30 bucks. Sorry if I posted twice. Good Luck.

Here it is I work for A Goverment Fleet and I think I found the Short term fix.My Wife has the same 2005 cavalier and last month on A Trailblazer I had the same problem and on ALL CHEVYS WITH MODULE CONTROLLED DASHES (95-09) THEY WILL HAVE THIS PROBLEM not so much with the 07 and up.There is A WARRANTY for the TRUCKS it is 70000 miles or 7 Years for certain VIN's contact your local G.M dealer . I took the gauge assembly out and took the clear face cover off and rolled the stuck needles back to 0 . With the key off the gauges on all vehicles should read ZERO. This is A temparary FIX.The detective that drives the Trailblazer has not been back since NOTE: That same trailblazer was repaired by an outside source 3 times and the dash went out every time around the same year we were charged $200.00 roughly every visit.

SOURCE: chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working

If the odometer is still working, it may not be the speed sensor since the signal used by the speedometer is the same. I have been told of a wiring or connection problem behind the dash. Anyone hear about this and have a fix?

My chevy cavalier 2005, the speedometer and temperature gauge stopped working. I'm not sure whats wrong and don't want to get ripped off at the dealers. Please help if there is something I can check...


Is the ck engine light on If so take to a auto parts store that will ck the car for codes and that will tell you if the speed sensor is working or not> If the speed sensor is not working the ck engine light will be on and the car will have stored that code.If there are no codes that it is most likely the cluster for the speedometer not working . Now the temperature guage not working is the needle spunaround backwards past the stop If so that replace the cluster .If not than it needs to be ckd for a bad tempature sensor.This should also set a code and turn the ck engine light.

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


That Cluster will work But, You will have to get an Installation kit if you want the Tach to work. Everything else will hook up the Same. You have a Distribution Box (Fuse Box) Under the Hood on the Drivers Side, There is a Fuse in it for the Speedo. Inside the Cover to the Box is the Fuse Diagram or in the Back of the Owners Manual.

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


This is most likely not a speed sensor problem, I see this a lot on 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters and it's always the same. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and it can be fixed. Check out this page for more about how to get it fixed - cavalier speedometer fix

If your odometer is working and your speedo needle doesnt indicate correctly then your problem is the stepper motor in the cluster. I have repaired a lot of instrument clusters....cost is 105.00
