I have a 2004 as well with low miles and mine is doing the same. I found that it tends to fix it self after I alot of driving around and parking.. Like I went shopping one day and i went to several stores.. After each time I parked and got back in the car a few minutes later the spedometer would go down a little. I havent had to take it in yet to get fixed as that seems to fix the problem when it happens. Which it has 2 times.. I'm thinking of getting rid of the car as I have a few other issues.. I think the 2004 must be a bad year..

It is not just the 2004 that the instrament panel needles stick. I found on my 2004 that the speedometer and temp gages stick when the instrament panel gets hot. I drive at night with the dash lights dim to keep the dash from heating up. Another trick is to close one of the dash vents on either side of the I/P and run the A/C. This keeps the I/P from heating up and the gages work properly. You can also take the instrument panel out and have it rebuild for around $170. There are several sites on the internet that will do the work. It appears to be a common problem on many GM vehicles not just Impalas.

I have the same problem. Mine does it when its cold. Once the motor warms up and I come to a complete stop and then take off it will work. I have had it not fix itself on two occasions and actually go all the way around 1.5 times! This has gone on for the last 2 years. For about the same amount of time the passengers windshield wiper will begin to flop and stop working. I have to tighten it up to get it to work for a short time once again. Now the new problem is the car not starting. Looking like electrical problems. Once I put it in neutral and try starting it a few times it will start. It doesn't have that many miles to be having this much trouble. My 97 Ford F150 has 189,000 miles and less problems!!

I am having the same problem with my remote so if anyone has a solution please let me know. Is the problem with the receiver? I have replaced the battery but the problem persists. We have 2 remotes...same problem with both.
#403 of 433 What wrong with my gas
Oct 28, 2011 (11:48 pm)
No matter the amount of gas I put into my car the gas light comes on I do not notice any leaks, but my gas hand never worked it always showed empty but just recent my gas fuel light will not go away. I do not know what to do.

The same thing happened to me when my "fuel level sensor" went bad. In my 2001 Impala I was able to replace it without removing the gas tank due to an access panel between the trunk and back seet under the carpeting. I think I bought a replacement sensor only rather than the entire system that it is connected to. It cost 25$ after shipping from rockauto.com. I know I found some directions doing a google search that had pictures and stuff. Best of luck!

i have a 2004 impala ls as well and iv been having problems but with the gas and rpm gauges. it did this since the day i got it then about 4 months ago my heat on driver side stopped working and the gauges didn't act up. but then my heat started working out of nowhere about 2 weeks ago and the gauges acted up again. it doesn't bother me. after i turn my car off i let it cool down then when i turn it back on its back to normal.
