Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

My 05 Venture's analog speedometer having a problem. Most of the time it reads correct, other times it reads way more than what I am going. At times I am going 60, it can read upwards of 95mph. I have not narrowed it down to a specific event. However, it seems that when we're on a long trip, it's a 50/50 chance of happening. There are times it 'jumps' slightly from one speed to another.

My 05 Focus speedometer is wacky. All other gauges and systems work fine. The speedometer needle doesn't go to zero when vehicle stops moving.


Sounds like the speedometer is faulty. If the speed sensor were the problem, the odometer would not work correctly, the transmission would not shift correctly, and the check engine light would be on.

Broken Speedometer?


You are correct in thinking if the speed sensor fails the check engine light should be on, and you should experience problems with the transmission.
It sounds like just the speedo has failed.

Hi, I think 2 things have happened. 1st, when your oil was changed, the technician did not reset the oil life back to 100%. This can be done by turning the key on, without starting the engine, consistantly push the accelerator to the floor fully, 3 times. At the last time, the oil life should reset to 100%. The other issue sounds like a different size tire may have been installed, causing the speedometer to read incorrect. A dealer should be able to reprogram the computer to accept the correct size tire, therefore making the speedometer read correctly. This should not be an issue, unless the current tire size is not accepted in the computer, at this point, you ned to change to the correct size tire, or realize you may be off on the speedometer, and accomodate for your speed accordingly. Good luck...Coop

Trouble with my speedometer starting off at 60 or 100


Pretty common on the 03-05 Sunfire instrument clusters. It's caused by the stepper motors on the cluster circuit board going bad but it can be fixed. Check out this page for more about how to get it fixed - Sunfire speedometer fix
