#71 of 80 2003 Yukon speedometer and dim gear lights
Jan 24, 2013 (7:46 am)
I am having same issues with speedometer recently. Speedometer reads 70 when stopped and goes up to 120 mph as I accelerate. And have had dim gear lights for over a year now. Was not aware this issues were related until I read this forum. Would like to know if I have a recall on this problem and if it's still valid. I bought truck used in 2006 and never received any recalls. Dealer I bought it from is now closed as well as many other GMC/Chevy dealers on Long Island. So I do not know where to go for help!...milage is at 165,600 and last 8 digits of VIN are: 3J323854..... Please help GM customer service....thank you

You will likely not be eligible for the recall like I was not but I contacted the regional customer relations manager (available from your dealership) and got the cost of the entire instrument panel covered by GM. I was only responsible for the labor which ended up around $150. Give that a shot and see where it takes you.

GM contacted my local dealer here in NJ to get the job done for less than the $500 I was quoted. I was charged $200 plus tax for a total of $214 to replace the cluster. I didn't want to pay a dime since this should be a recall issue due to this being so wide spread of an issue but I didn't feel safe letting my wife drive the truck like this. A few weeks after the cluster was replaced a got a check back from the dealer for a $52.33 refund so my final total was $161.67.

I have a 2003 Yukon XL and have had nothing but problems with it from day 1. As of now, the speedometer is stuck on 0, the oil gauge is stuck, and the fuel gauge is inaccurate. I can't tell you how many times I have ran out of gas and got stuck on the side of the road with my 4 children b/c it said I had OVER 1/4 of a tank and I did not have anything. The heater turns on for no reason while driving and the only way to make it go back to cold is to pull over and turn the car off and then back on. The wipers do not work...I have to pull the fuse when it is not raining and then pull over on the side of the road to put the fuse back in when it does rain. I am a single mother of 4 trying to put myself through nursing school with absolute $0 in child support from my ex-husband. I cannot afford to pay the $500 plus dollars that the dealership wants to look at this issue. The speedometer is a MAJOR safety issue for my family as we have no clue how fast/slow we are going down the highway. I have watch several vidoes on you tube to try to figure this out and want to attempt to do it myself but I am not sure exactly what needs to be done. Anyone have any ideas of where I should start 1st??? HELP PLEASE!

GMC Dealership said ours was replaced, I assume they replaced it with the same defective recalled part. Bc it's still an ongoing issue, along with gas hand not working. Thank God for this site as we have tried everything to fix the reduced engine power. Finally, we replaced the throttle body on our vacation trip. That should be a recall. We have also had to replace the fuel filter, and countless batteries. But hey... We have 256,000 miles on our yukon XL. I'm still a big fan of GMC, our 99 Pontiac Trina's Am is sitting on 350,000 miles to the original motor.

I have a 2004 Denali and just started having the speedometer problem. It started about a month ago then went back to normal until 2 days ago now the speedometer just sits around 60 mph when the vehicle is turned off. Once the engine is in motion it moves up to 120 while going about 40 mph. I am the original owner and still under 70K miles. I intend to call my dealer tomorrow to follow up on the recall. Thanks
