Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Chevy Cavalier 1991 RS 2.2

My Speedometer has seemd to go out on me. I had this problem last year and replaced the speed sensor and also the little motor in my dash. Recently I have noticed problems with the speedometer sticking or jumping. I knew it was a sign of what was to come. Could it be that I picked up a faulty motor? Or could the problem be much bigger? If I had only bought a years older model the cable sounds like it would have been much easier for me. Thank you for your time :0)

Yes the motor is faulty or the circuit that controls it, both the motor and the driver circuit that sends voltage to the motor can cause this issue, have seen both issues many times, I think electronic speedo's are just over complication of a very simple device, i.e. cable driven speedometers.

Speedometer acting erratic on 99 chevy cavalier


Check the VVS (vehical velocity sensor) "speed sensor", The vss controls shifting and cruise control as well as speedometer. If the Cavalier shift's fine and cruise control work, the it's going to be a good chance that the speedometer n the instrument panel may have a bad connection or the stepper motor needs to be replaced. Get a service book and attempted to check for voltage going to speedo cluster( at dash), to determine if your stepper motor is bad and replace the motor or the whole instrument panel.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

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
