The consumer was informed the problem was caused by a wiring cluster in the dash. He feels that it is a safety issue because he does not know how fast he is driving. Better to be on the safe mode than getting a speeding ticket. Fluctuates now, up and down. We argue that proper operation of a speedometer has a direct impact on the safe operation of a vehicle. I have cars from the 60's and 70's and the instrument clusters work just fine.
Have left it cool down, then start the engine numerous times for it to reset in 5 mph increments until it returns to 0 mph. The failure has been occurring for two weeks. The use can reset to English but the cluster will change the language randomly or simply scroll through the options endlessly. Be aware of generic brand stepper motors produced in China, numerous problems have been seen with these aftermarket motors. This solution will require the replacement instrument cluster to be re-programmed so that the odometer displays your vehicles mileage instead of the vehicle the cluster came out of.
Approximately 6 weeks ago the speedometer started showing intermittent speeds not consistent with actual speed. Sometimes at the higher reading, it will read 60 mph when vehicle is stopped, in park, and ignition off. There were no prior warnings. I hope this is my first and last problem I ever have with it, as I know it is one many other 2003-2006 Silverado owners have had to deal with. When reading up on this I find I am not the only one who is having this issue. . While driving approximately 80 mph on normal road conditions, the speedometer failed without warning.
It will read the mileage of the vehicle that that gauge cluster was taken from. The manufacturer has not been notified. So i took the truck to the dealer to get it fixed since i got a letter in the mail saying that it was defect and there was a recall. Like the lights this is the perfect chance to upgrade your cluster with colored needles, you can get them here: or Q. Nationwide shipping allows for quick turn around limiting vehicle down time. While driving approximately 5 mph, the speedometer indicated that the vehicle was traveling 110 mph. This requires a trip to the dealer for mileage re-programming.
In November of 2008, the U. Replacement requires de-soldering of the faulty stepper motors for removal and soldering in of the new X27. I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 in mint condition, believe it or not I have only 7 or 8,000 miles on it. The failure and current mileages were 96,000. Now slide each needle back onto the shaft of each new motor being careful to slide it on smoothly and straight down not at an angle, to prevent bending the motor shafts.
Last year my temperature gauge was getting stuck after I turned it off. Make sure you get the correct part number when you buy your stepper motors see link above for correct parts. They will need to be replaced before installation. But I could take it to a deal pay the diag ffee and get an estimate. Remove tape and snap clear lens back on making sure to line up the odometer selector stalk. From online research I found that this is an ongoing problem, since 2003.
Clean the lens before installing if needed. I want some action done to help protect consumers like me who are essentially paying for the bailout of these companies in the current economic condition. Most instances can be repaired and this is included as part of the regular rebuild service. Owners of vehicles that qualified but who had already paid for the repairs themselves could be eligible for reimbursement, up to the price the dealership would have charged, as long as proper proof could be provided. I told them that I do not think a speedometer should break when the vehicle has less than 60,000 miles on it.
If the vehicle is not driven for a few days either problem can drain the battery. Because we are unable to gauge speed accurately this has created a dangerous safety concern that could place others the public at risk. Sluggish going to 0 mph when stopping at a stop sign etc. After a couple of days it worked fine, week later when we were returning from the trip same thing occurred. It is inconclusive, however I do believe the malfunction is a safety concern.
We took it to the chevy dealer and they said it was a problem with the cluster and they ordered the part. Ok you're now ready to remove the old and replace them with new ones. Silverado temp gauge not working — Silverado temp gauge up and down If you have a temp gauge not working or reading up and down you should first make sure you have plenty of coolant in your radiator of course but baring that the only likely cause on a Silverado would be a failing stepper motor on the temperature gauge which requires gauge repair. The current and failure mileages were 115000. Claims on engine warranties are limited to manufacturer defects in the pistons, heads, block, crankshafts, rockers, and oil pumps.
Because of this at home installation of a factory trans temp gauge is not feasible. The failure and current mileages were 90000. After a couple of days it worked fine, week later when we were returning from the trip same thing occurred. So as a test to know if your speed sensor may be the cause of your speedometer problems you simply need to pay attention to how your automatic transmission is behaving. I accelerated to an unknown speed, however not excessively. While driving at speeds as low as 50 mph, the vehicle speedomoter would indicate the vehicle was traveling at speeds of 120 mph and would stick at this mileage.
