Start tracing the wires and look for a loose one. Sportsters are known for the negative cables vibrating loose.

My speedometer on my 2005 Buick rendezvous starts off on zero and then shoots up to 110 when I am at a complete stop. I have changed the speed sensor module and checked the fuses. What else could it b


What module did you replace ? Was the vehicle transmission shifting OK ? The gauge is controlled by a stepper motor inside the instrument cluster , GM had bad stepper motors 03 to 06 .That is probably your problem .

Speedometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed as determined by the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM). The ECM/PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4,000 pulses/mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit (4,000 pulses/mile), class 2 message from the ECM/PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. If the IPC detects a malfunction in the vehicle speed signal circuit from the ECM/PCM, the IPC uses the class 2 message from the EBCM, indicating the vehicle speed as a backup. If the speedometer reaches (108 mph) the fuel will shut-off, and it will turn back ON when the speedometer is at (106 mph). The speedometer displays either miles or kilometers as requested by the activation of the english/metric button on the driver information center (DIC). The associated indicator (km/h or mph) illuminates.

Where is the speed sensor located on a 2003 buick rendezvous


Why ? speedometer not working ? Does the vehicle shift correctly ? The VSS - vehicle speed sensor is an input to the PCM - engine computer > Speed info is sent from the PCM to the microprocessor in the instrument cluster over the class 2 serial data bus . 2003 - 2006 GM vehicles had bad step motors in the instrument cluster . Step motors control gauge position. The VSS is located on the transmission case Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
Lower right rear of the engine compartment, mounted to the right side of the transaxle.

Which pins or wires do i test on a 2005 silverado instrument cluster for a faulty voltmter and speedometer


You haven't a clue what your messing with , no wires to check , The stepper motors in the cluster . GM had problems with them 2003 to 2006 . All the information for the instrument cluster comes from the PCM on class two serial data bus . Control module communication network . How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper The only way to check signal to instrument cluster is with a GM Tech 2 factory scan tool .There is a computer chip inside the cluster.

2001 Buick Century Limited speedometer problem, Speedometer not working but odomitor ok. Is there a fuse?


if the odometer is working then the problem is with the speedometer head unit as the odometer gets its information from the same source as the speedometer. you can have the speedometer head checked and fixed if its fixable.

2006 sportster speedo has no power, does not light up, work, nothing. have voltage to connector in back of speedo.


Hi Tim, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Next check the connector to the speedometer for correded, broken or loose pins/sockets. If your problems still exist try replacing your ignition relay if your year and model has one. Good luck and have nice day.

Speedometer stuck at 20 miles an hour?


My 96 did the same thing. The speed sensor is and was fine -- the problem is an open circuit in the wires inside the gauge itself.

The Chilton's manual has pretty good instructions on how to replace the instrument cluster. You can buy just the speedometer gauge, or an entire instrument cluster for $100 or so on eBay. Just be sure you get a cluster that matches your model and trim line -- the LX and DX have different clusters, and of course the automatic and the 5-speed are different as well.


Do be sure to disconnect the battery before you begin the project, as there's a (slim) chance you can discharge the airbags if you don't

Both speedometer & tachometer not working, both reading wrong.


There was a recent class action law suit settled with GM for this exact problem. You can google gm speedometer lawsuit and get lots of information. Unforutunately for most people I think the warranty was limited to 7 years and 70,000 miles. Which isn't a lot of miles for most people.

If you car isn't covered by the warranty there is a way to "reset" the speedometer.

You can turn the ignition slowly like you are going to start the engine. There is a very small "dead" space where you will see your guage lights go off.

What you want to do is cycle the ignition switch from off to that dead space. Each time you do it your stuck speedometer will move towards zero about 10 mph. So if its stuck on 40 you will have to cycle it at least 4 times.

At first you will probably actually hit the ignition and the engine will try to start.....just release it and try it again.

I know this because I have a 04 avalanche with 80,0000 miles and it has this problem about twice a month.

2006 f350 XL SPEEDOMETER


There is a Technical Service Bulletin Out for this concern no. 07-11-2. Here are the symptoms.

A known issue exists on the instrument cluster where it is possible for the graphics applique to separate from the cluster backplate and interfere with pointer operation. The suspect vehicle build months are July, 2005 to January, 2006. Although not impossible, vehicles built outside of this time period will likely not have this issue. The most common symptom is the speedometer pointer sticking while operating in cool or cold weather and the vehicle interior is beginning to warm up after a cold start. Revised instrument clusters are now available for service that includes a fix for this concern.
