I have a 2003 Tahoe and my speedometer has stopped working also. At first it jumped around like crazy then it just started reading 10 mph faster then what I would be going. I bought a new sensor and replaced it, then 4 days later it completely quit. Now the gauge thing is hanging straight down along with the oil pressure one to. Now I am not sure what to do.

This should fall under the recall, if you are under a specific mileage. Either way, I'd schedule an apt. w/ your local dealer and tell them you heard about the recall on the speedo...yours is doing what the recall says and talk to them nicely about fixing it for free. Some dealers are fixing all, some are only following the mileage requirement. Good luck, I've been waiting since early December for mine to be shipped, the dealer never calls me back. Thinking I might have to go to another dealer, now I'm starting to get irritated. They tell me the guy that ordered it is no longer there and I now don't qualify for it now, so much for DOING THE RIGHT THING...actually passed the point of irritation and on to straight up pissed off!

I own an 05 Tahoe, part went out at 69,400 and by the time the part was shipped to the dealer I am over 70k. Settlement is tomorrow. I will wait to see what happens. I have been looking for a copy of the letter concerning the Speedometer Malfunction, even called GM and they said they couldn't send me another copy. My dealer has asked for a copy of the letter in order to perform the work for free. Please email me a copy. jjoner123yahoo.com
Thanks so much,

Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the letter either. BUT, it shouldn't matter, dealer should follow their tech bulletins and fix it for free simply because you are an owner of the vehicle that has the recall. And the fact that its past warranty mileage after you already ordered the part is irrelevant...the dealer had notification prior to you passing mileage. Sounds like you have a fishy dealer.
Me, I'm still waiting to hear back from the dealer myself. I too have an issue w/ their telling me they'll replace it and then back pedal. What pisses me off even more is I just bought a vehicle from them less than a year ago. I will go straight to the owner of the dealership if they don't replace it.
If I can find a copy of the letter I'll get you one.

I have a 2005 Tahoe and was having a problem with my speedometer. I read some ones post about turning the ignition on and off about ten times and it corrected my problem. You must start the engine each time, but it eventually went back to zero.
Hope this helps!

I have a 2003 Silverado and my speedo went out about 2 months ago and i figured out on my own how to turn it off and back on about 10-12 times but that got old so i looked online for a possible recall. I went to a Chevrolet forum and no luck. I did a google search about a stuck speedo and came across this web site. I called the local dealer and they said i have to be in the 7yr/70,000 BS story so i called to the place i bought the truck and they said the same thing. To me this didn't seem right because it seems GM can really care less. So i call GM customer service and talked to a guy ext 42937 he told me about the 7/70k deal that GM will honor the thing is im sitting on 82k and i asked him if there was anything they could do and finally he said if i got a diagnostic test run at the local GM dealer he would further assist me.

I told the guy that i didn't want to get the test done unless i get some assistance and he said that they would as long as i get the test done.Ok good deal im thinking. Well i get a call from another person the next day letting me know that someone else will call me in a couple days. So the further assistance that i got was NONE. Some district customer service lady Ext 32537 calls me and says they cant help so i ask about a $77.49 reimbursement she said no GM doesn't do that. I said its not fair if they dont further assist me or reimburse me. Then she ask whos truck was it mine or GM's so i said mine then she said it became my problem the day i bought the truck and i said well who made the truck me or GM. I said forget it i want to talk to your boss and she put me on hold for about 5 minutes.

I guess she took a little time to talk to her boss. So long story short her boss told me that it wont go any further than him with that being said i told him he doesn't own GM. I told him before i hung up that no matter who i have to talk to that GM would reimburse me or would assist me in getting my cluster fixed and he said he is as far as it goes that no one would help me at GM.I found a # online thats GM related and once they fix my truck i will post the name, #, fax# and anything you guys would like to know that will be some help maybe. This person i talked to is way higher than these customer service clowns.I live in NC and Abernathy Chevrolet in Lincolnton,NC will fix it for $320.00 so will Bobby Woods Chevrolet in West Union, SC
