somewhat of a good news:
Gm is fixing some 2004 and 2003 vehicles with this problem. you have to call the customer service and they will do a vin # check to see if your car qualifies. They are going to fix my 2003 GMC sierra .

My '04 Silverado speedometer just quit working like all the rest! Has anyone found a Dealer to fix this SAFETY problem yet? Is there a TSB or anything else being done about the problem? I noticed the speedometer needle jerking going up and down, I guess that's the notification that it's about to quit working! If anyone has the right fix, please let me know at [email protected] THANKS Frank

what year are we talking about ? Most can be easly fix , remove dash cover, protective clear plate, and you will see the speeddometer face plate. turn needle by hand, if ti spring back to the fuul blow position then remove the 4 screws that hold in the faceplate and see if you lost your balance weight. You can get a new speedometer or one from the salvage yard, disconnect speedometer cable and replace. Just be extra gentle with the small parts.

As I see it, there is a massive amount of defects showing up with this same problem! The Chevy Dealers all want big bucks to fix a problem which is a continuous problem with this year and type vehicle. Is anyone considering a Class Action suit against GM for these problems which they evidently will not fix unless we pay through the nose for the repair!

This is to clarify my point! I'm not an advocate of sueing just to be sueing. When these big dealers just refuse to fix/repair problems that are theirs due to poor manufacturing practices, then how do we get anything accomplished? I just received a rebate from Verizon for a suit they had brought against them, that I didn't even know about! Some one has to push the button to get these dealerships to pay attention! They already charge outrageous prices for the normal every day repairs! Why should they get paid for a problem they produced? Oh Well! I'm willing to listen to other reasonable solutions, anybody?

I have a 2003 Silverado with the same speedometer problem. It's really ashame that this $30,000 truck has this design/quality defect. GM needs to own up to this defect and show some goodwill torward its loyal customers.

Getting my instrument panel replaced today at no charge. Compliments of GM. They know I've been snooping around the Toyota lots!

My 2003 silverado started with the speedometer going out then the tach and temp guage Chevy will fix or replace if your truck has less than 70,000 miles or less than seven years old (didnt help in my case over 70,000) But they are not calling it a recall.The stepper motors they used in the clusters are cheap they know this but wont do anything for my 4 yr. old truck.

Is there a way to force a recall? My speedometer and tachometer are doing the exact same thing on my 2004 Silverado. This is not normal and is a definite manufacturing flaw. It works one moment and then it could read anything. I use a gps unit to see how fast I am going. This should be the responsibility of the manufacturer to correct without cost to the consumer.

Well looks like from all the reading I am S.O.L. 77K & 4 years old,$40,000.00 truck. Looks like they would have to replace what they have found to be defective in a substancial amount of the model years of trucks regardless of mileage or how old.(RECALL) However 7 years appears appropiate, but only 10 k per year average driving they need to GET REAL.

check your vehical speed sensor that sits on top of the transmission, that is probably what is keeping you from switching gears

Yep, just head to the dealer, they have to reprogram it. I have had to get mine done every time I take it for an oil change.

I have an '04 trailblazer that i just parked at the dealers registering 105 on the speedometer.
Hope chevrolet does a recall on these - I hate to pay for repairs on a defective part.

I had the same issues and GM told me I was out of gas. Since I was 3k over the 70k on my 2003 truck. I found this guy online that repaired my speedometer and returned it to me within a week. I dont remember his name but this was the site where I found him. www.floridaspeedometer.com

I received a notice on my 2003 Silverado yesterday from GM on this very issue. I had issues with the speedometer. Too bad I traded it 2 weeks ago. Yes, I went with another GM. I bought a Tahoe this time.
