My speedometer stopped working on my way home from work. It slowly went down to zero and wouldn't move. Everything else works fine other then that. I took the truck out about 30 minutes later and it worked fine. Anyone know whatit could be. Its an 04 with 67,000 miles on it. Thanks

GM has acknowledged an issue on 03/04 trucks and is fixing them for free (up to 70K miles I believe?). There is a "special service policy" out about this (as my dealer called it). I know because I had heard something about this and called my dealer to see if my wife's 04 Impala was included. Unfortunately, for me anyway, it's only for the trucks.

Call your dealer.

That problem is very common on 2003-2006 Silverado & Suburban's. My 2003 Suburban speedometer stopped working everything else worked though, by the time I heard about getting it fixed under warranty I had already gotten rid of it.

I would try getting it fixed under warranty ASAP, while u still can. Just cause it was working right now doesn't mean it is fixed.

Take it in. You won't have a problem getting it replaced.

Mine would drop to 0 then it worked fine, now it is stuck at 120mph, I have a 05 sierra with 87000km, i am getting no where with gm cs, if the dealer cant take care of it i will be signing on to the class action lawsuit, and have a magnetic sign made for my truck, it will tell potential buyers of GM Quality Products to talk to me before they purchase a GM product. Should have stuck with the Jap Crapp

I had the same issue with my '04 Yukon and it is out of warranty. The fuel gauge stopped working and was stuck on empty. I took it in after reading about it being a problem from this forum. I dropped it off and they checked it out and replaced it in about 20 minutes. They told me there were issues with the earlier gauges and it had a 70k warranty on it for that.

and I was all prepared to buy a new aftermarket cluster gauge which would have looked much nicer :lol:

Mine just did this stuck at zero thing today. Worked fine the next time out. I'm at 76,000 miles. Any chance they replace it anyway. I know, I know call the dealer and ask. Can't hurt.

The speedo on my '04 Sierra started acting up and since I was over the miles to get any help from the dealer, I bought this part and had it fixed.
