#11 of 80 2004 GMC Yukon Denali - speedometer and gas gauge
Feb 01, 2009 (10:23 am)
We have a 2004 Yukon Denali XL. We bought when it was 3 yrs old. Last year the speedometer starting acting up. We thought it was because of the cold and sure enough in the spring it worked again.. for a while. Then we started having problems with it again and then after I took it to the garage to have the compressor replaced for the air shocks and replaced a sending unit for the gas tank and spending almost $1500 I realized then that my gas guage was not reading correctly.
I am a Mom with two kids and my husband works out of town so I am the one who is driving the kids here and there.. and if they are not with me I am alone. The speedometer is a pain and annoying because so many people have had this problem with the same vehicle.. but now I don't know when I am on empty or not? This is worrisome and dangerous!! I have to set my trip meter, thank God that still works, and gauge how far I can drive on $40.00 or so many litres of gas. Not good!!
Recall? I sure hope so.. and soon!

I went to my local GM garage and they checked to see if the speedometer was on recall and they said yes but then said.. oh but that I had too many kilometres on my truck. If it's a recall it should be a recall no matter what.. no matter how many kilometres you have on your vehicle. Frustrating!!!

There is a video in two parts on youtube re removing the instrument panel (speedometer) from an 03-05 GM product. Search under "country1998a".

My 2004 Denali speedometer works or does not, and sometimes displays the wrong speed. Has GMC have a recall for speedometer?? also problem started after battery was replaced. Could this be the problem??

Been having a problem with my speedometer dropping out at highway speeds on my '05. Called GMC 1-800-462-8782 and talked to them today. Over 70k miles it might end up getting covered eventually. They wanted me to go to the dealership to have it checked out. I already took it to another service place (non-Dealer) today to have them tell me it was what I told them it was. That and the information that it was not covered by my extended Warranty through PREFERED AUTO Warranty was all I got for my $77 charge. Was very pissed off that PREFERED did not tell me it would not be covered when I stated the what part was bad. Instead they told me the one place in town that was cheap enough to do work for them, North Wells Auto Service in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Found the motor on E-bay for $10, going to try that route before I pay anyone to big $$$ to change the panel by pulling 4 screws. Call the 800# to let them know you have an issue so they make this a recall.
#17 of 80 speedometer malfunctioning
Sep 04, 2010 (2:05 pm)
i purchased a pre-owned 2005 denali 4 years ago and have had so many issues with vehicle than any other vehicle ever owned. Starting with headlight bulbs burning out about every month, gps not able to read disc or not turning on, rear door cargo glass constantly breaking at the hinges, radio only works for about 5 minutes right after you start the vehicle, i could go on and on, but, i could not fit in this message. This message to anyone experiencing a speedometer that for no apparent reason, will display a reading that appears to be decreasing in speed, but i could be traveling at 70 mph. i have had this problem for some time now, and can't figure out any pattern when it starts to malfunction, different speeds, temperature changes, etc. it started this shortly after the warranty expired and works fine just before i plan to take it in. anyone with a simple solution??????

There was a recall on the instrument cluster a couple of years ago. We got it fixed with no charge.. however I was hoping it would also fix my problem that I have with my fuel gauge. Unfortunately the instrument cluster has nothing to do with that. Its the sending unit in the tank.. and the crappiest thing about that is that this is our second GMC vehicle with that problem. It's a pain in the butt and I have heard this is a common problem with GMC trucks but so far no recall.. and there probably won't ever be one. Thank God for trip meters!!
