We have a 2004 Rainier purchased new. Like some other recent GM speedos on SUV's, mine went haywire also. At first Buick was saying they would not replace for free because it was not a safety issue. Oh come on! I have not had a speedo fail in a car since the 60's! The dealer went to bat for us after we showed them numerous complaints on forums about the speedo cluster. They convinced Buick to replace the cluster at no charge to us even though we were past the warranty. What I wonder is what will they do if it fails again?

We experience a fair amount of rear sway when the cross winds are strong. My guess is it from the air bags in the back. Anyone else notice this and is there a sway bar available that would help?

I am now negotiating with the local Buick Dealership where I purchased our Buick Rainer, the dealership informed me that my problem will be discussed with the "higher ups" and that I will be contacted next week as to how much the dealership will pay ( if anything) to have this problem resolved. I also plan to reveal to the dealship the numerous complaints listed on this forum. I am from the Kansas City area, if I do not have any luck maybe the location of the dealership that replaced your cluster will be willing to do the same for me, or should I just demand the same service you received in your part of the country?? Your question wondering what to do if it fails again, will only give us further ammunition and evidence that this particular part is defective and that a recall should be initiated, allowing customer to have on going replacement parts as needed, I bet quality inspection will then make sure the part is "up to standards."
#19 of 312 2006 Low Beam Headlights

I had the actuator 4.563 replaced as the all-wheel drive was locked in to 4-wheel drive. That evening I noted that I had no low beam headlights. All other lights worked properly. I found no fuses blown. As was expected, when I checked the dirving lights during daylight the next day, they were out also. I wouldn't expect that both lamps would go at the same time. Should I expect that this problem might be related to actuator replacement?

Yes, had it repaired this morning. They replaced a Relay 2.485 B, FP Number 15016745, under warranty. Apparently the answer to my question is that there is no relationship to the actuator problem.

15016745 Electrical - Electrical components - Relay - Fan control
Fan control - Fuse block-engine compartment 2004 - 2007, this part is causing the issue with the speedometer indicator to register incorrectly?

I don't follow your post. The relay that I had indicated was replaced to repair my low beam headlight problem.

Hi I'm in NJ and could you tell me were you found other forums complaint about this problem. I have been looking online for some kind of recall or anyone else with this problem. I should not have to pay for this repair I've never seen anything like this and it should be a recall
