Some 2004 ford trucks have a problem with the wiring harness used for cruise control runs too close to the alternator causing EMI. At a stand still it will look as though you are going 30 mph. If your alt is putting out an exessive amount of current, this will cause the dash module to become overwhelmed with the EMI and eventually fail.

How to fix a speedometer cable


Well you know it does not have a speedo cable since you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission.
My guess would be a problem with the speedo or cluster.

I looked down and the speedometer in my 05 Trailblazer said I was going 120 mph. When I stopped and put the car into park, the speedometer stuck at 70 mph. I need a simple, cost effective solution. Please...


This is a very common problem with Trailblazers and is caused by a fault speedometer stepper motor - the actual motor that makes your needle move around is wearing out.

You have two solutions, if your Trailblazer has 70k miles or less you can take it to your local Chevy dealer and they will replace it for you as part of a recall.

If you have over 70k miles visit my Trailblazer speedometer page here: http://drspeedometer.com/services-i-offer/trailblazer-speedometer-repair

I specialize in the repair of these units and offer free shipping and a great guarantee on my work.

Speedometer not working on 2002 dodge ram 1500


Removed cluster from dashboard and unplugged & turned the whole cluster clockwise very slowly and needle started moving from 150 mph back down to 0 mph when rotation was completely done. Kept cluster upright while re-installing and plugged back in the plugs on back and everything was fine. Called local Dodge dealer and told me would take 30-45 minutes to reset and would cost approximately $70 to fix. Took about 8-10 minutes of my time and saved myself $70. This may not work for everyone but this was my amazing quick fix thanks to GOD for giving me this thought to try this.
