#243 of 280 2005 Trailblazer non working speedo & gas gauge ALSO
Jun 20, 2011 (2:43 pm)
This is my first post. My 2005 Trailblazer has had a speedometer and gas gauge problem since just after I purchased it last year private party with only 70k mi.. . I wish I would have read up on the trailblazers before I bought mine... it's left me stranded (thankful it was on my way to pick up the kids) and we are total CHEVY family (this is our 5th). I'm not sure if I would buy another Chevy after owning this clunker.. honestly. What are folks doing about the non working speedometer and gas gauge issue? Thanks for any info you can offer.

A waste of our time, yes they contacted me, but wanted to set up a diagnoses at my expense and repair at my expense, ashamed that they don't step up to the plate and take responsibilty for faulty equipment.. So don't get your hopes up when they start sending you emails that it is being reported and checked into, just a way to get more money out of us at the dealerships.. I have a friend who is a GM mechanic and when I first had problems and asked him what he could be he knew immediatley and the cost of around 500.00 to have it replaced at the dealership.. Good Luck I hope you have better luck than I did... I will just keep calculating my fuel supply on paper and an estimate of how many miles I have driven, and hope I don't get a ticket for speeding one day until I can afford to get it fixed......

Well I got contacted and asked for my VIN and other info.
BTW my TB has had 3 new heads put on it!
Factory one went south in 2008
Friendly Chevrolets crappy work went south early this year.
Now I'm on the 3rd one from Bankston Nissan.
Who knows? Maybe there will be some help or maybe not? Who knows?
There is always the BBB and if enough are not helped or satisfied then
filing a complaint, maybe in the thousands? would get their
I'm gonna wait and see what they do and especially what the problem is.
That'll tell you a bunch.
Did they buy stuff from a crappy mfg?
Did they install wrong?
Etc, etc, etc.
Keep you up on what happens and I hope GM has learned it's lessons and
maybe respects us taxpayers for keeping their butts out of the ditch?

I hae a 2005 Trailblazer with 97,000 miles and am now having problems with the speedometer sticking, jumping to 120 miles per hr, etc. I am seeing a lot of posts about this being an known issue and I am wondering if there is a way to get this fixed without having to pay for it. I have had a few problems with GM not wanting to cover the items even when they were under warranty. I love truck, but an nervous with seeing what everyone is saying. I am in the Navy and if anyones knows how I can get this fixed and not get screwed over, please let me know. Thanks!!!
