    2004 Trailblazer Tach getes stuck. Now the speedo is stuck. I some times can clear the problem by turning the truck on and off repeatedly and the gauges will come back about 5 points each time I turn it on. The problem is worse when it is wet out and now that the roads are salty it seems permenently stuck. Does anyone know which sensor would be causing this?

    I have a 2005 base model cavalier, and it to has a similar problem. The fuel gauge, temp. gauge, and sometimes the speedo will get stuck. Not sure what is causing this problem. I have tried searching for a recall with no luck. But, turning the ignition forward and turning it off again seems to restore the gauges. I have to do this repeatedly to get them back to normal.

    I have a problem with my speedometer as well. Mine has quit working and points straight down. I'm being told that it is the electrical and will cost approx $500 to fix. There have been several recalls on other models for this problem but not the cavalier.

Speedometer is stuck on 80 even when iam going 10 mph. some times it reads lower than 80 and sometimes higher but its not functioning

you need a new speedometer cable, for the most part they are fairly cheap, if that isn't the problem then you have bad wiring that is going through your cd deck and it all needs to be rewired

2005 cavalier cluster problem

Well I installed a brand new speed sensor, and lost my money there because it didn't make a bit of difference. So I Googled and called around, and found a used cluster for $112 bucks with shipping. One of my local guys is going to install it for me at $30 bucks. If that won't fix the problem, I guess I'll ask for a Government bail out and have it fixed at the dealer.

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.

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
