'04 2500 HD Speedometer

Discussion in 'Chevy Trucks' started by Motorman 007, Nov 29, 2006.

  1. My speedometer has decided to go nuts the last 2 days. It's stuck at 60 mph and goes up to 90-100 while driving at 40. I did a search and found one hit here on the forum that was a couple of years old regarding the cluster going bad and the troubles getting it replaced/repaired. Anyone with any recent experience with this?? Thanks. I'm 1 month over my 3 years on the warranty.

    From what i know about this problem is that it is an electrical malfunction as opposed to something mechanical. Also ive heard that chevy charges somewhere around $500 outside of warranty. Good luck man

    Common problem on 03-06 trucks from what I've been told. You need a cluster. I'm still hunting for one for mine as it is all over the place as well. A lot of guys switch them out for the Denali/SS/Escalde clusters so you may be able to find one on the cheap.
  4. Ebay is the way

    There are several on Ebay, I was looking this morning. One particular guy seems to have the niche. He sells refurbished ones with a one year warranty all programmed with your info and mileage for $199. That's better than $500! I talked to my dealer...he's going to take care of me, although the Denali cluster sounds kind of cool.

    Speedo problem

    I have had the same problem with my 04 GMC. You more than likely have a failed stepper motor. The motor is what drives the needle for your speedometer. I have done the research and have aquired a few of these motors for my own repair. If you have some electronic repair skills (de-soldering & soldering on a circuit board) I would be more than happy to sell you one of my spairs. Don't be discouraged it is definitely a repair not worth paying $250.00-$300.00 for!
