The speedometer not working right why? and the left front seat want move why how do i fix it what is causing it not to move? i can hear a sound when i press the seat switch.

A few possible issues that may cause your speedometer to not work are a bad speed sensor / gear. Could be an internal gear inside the transmission, not as common of a problem.

What type of sound do you hear when trying to move the driver seat ? Is it a clicking or the motor seat motor running ? This can help determine what may be your problem.

I guess my first question is how do you know it is just the left front wheel ?
Have you checked the front shocks ?
Does it make any difference if you are applying the brakes ?
Have you moved the left front wheel to a different position ?

I have a 2006 VTX1300C Honda and the speedometer is 5 mph faster than I'm going. It has a standard size tire on the rear(170/80x15). What size can I go to on stock rims and get it say 1-2 mph off?

The tire that determines the speed on the speedometer is the front tire. To fix your problem you need to put a TALLER front tire on your cycle. If your front tire is a 140/80x17 you can correct the problem by putting on a 140/90x17 . Going from an 80 profile to a 90 profile should correct your speedometer by almost 5 MPH. Hopefully , you can find a tire that size that is available.

Speedometer/Odometer is off about 10%, 2006 Jetta, 2.5

I have a 2006 and a 2004 Jetta - the '06 is off by 4 mph and the '04 is off by 2 mph - differences calcuated by multiple GPS units in the cars for testing.

Apparently I took the easy way out and bought larger tires to compensate for the speedo difference. My '04 now matches my GPS mph and my '06 is off by just .5 mph.

Go to and compare the OEM size to larger size tires - this will tell you, in MPH, the difference between the tires. Figure out how much your speedometer is off, go to this web site and find a tire that will be "faster" than the OEM that is equal or close to the speedometer difference.

The speedo is electronic and has failed, you will need to have it repaired by an authorized GM repair shop that does GM electronics, this is not the dealer, they will send it out and charge 2X, send it out for repair yourself, bypass the dealer.
