I own a 2004 Yukon XL Denali, and I as well have problems with my speedomoter. I have only owned it since March as we bought it used. I was in love with it and I take it to a GM Dealership everytime I need an oil change or need any work done on it. I don't scrimp on the service but my Yukon is having the same problem with the speedometer. I noticed it just being slightly off.. then it got worse and not it just hangs there pointing at the bottom. I went to the GM Dealership, not where it was bought, but the place I go all the time and they went through paperwork and checked on their computers and said yes there is a problem noted but becuase of my kilometers they could not help me. If this is a recall, kilometers should not matter. If the thing does not work and they know about it, they should fix it. Will calling GMC make any difference? I guess if there are enough people it will.. can I be lucky enough? I doubt it!!

Hello! I also have a 2005 Yukon with the same speedometer problems, however mine does not stay stuck on a specific number it is all over the place. I purchased my pre-owned Yukon in November 2007. I took my car to the dealership where I bought it (Chevrolet) and was told this was a recall and they ordered a part. Well today when I took it in for repair, they called to advise me it was not a recall on the 05 model but only the 03 & 04 models. After exhausting every possible scenario I could to keep from paying the $450.00 charge, nothing worked. I have extended warranty insurance through Mercury Insurance Group but the Chevolet dealership will not accept it since I did not purchase it directly from them. URGH
Anyway I called the 1-800 GMC number and made a claim. The lady that I spoke with is going to call the Chevrolet dealership to get the specific diagnosis. She said that she would try to get the repair approved under their (GMC) expense. I am not holding my breath that GMC will actually foot the bill for this, but if they do I will post back and let you know. Maybe enough people have notified them of this problem that they are considering a recall. I could only wish.

I just purchased a Denali XL and experienced the weird speedometer readings. The next day after starting up it worked fine. Filed claim with G.M.C. and was put on list if recall occurs. They said there are not enough claims to recall the speedometer.

I just purchased an 04 Denali XL with 97000 miles on it. The speedometer was stuck at 90mph. I took it to my local dealership here in Seattle for my 90k tune up and asked about the speedometer. He said there was only coverage to 70k miles, but would ask his boss if they could do it for free seeing as I was spending about a grand on the tune up. He later called me and told me they would fix it for free. Maybe it pays to wait for a scheduled tuneup to fix it.

My wife "caught" the same problem last night on her 2005. The speedometer is at 35 mph when sitting still and the odometer is working right. I had the very same issue on my 2004 Sierra last year. I had it fixed at the dealer out of my own pocket. A few months after this I got a recall notice about the issue and was refunded for my expenses. I guess we will pursue the fix and hope there is a recall on this for the 2005. Would like to know if there are any updates out there. My Siearra is working fine.

My wife just called me and she said that her yukon's (yukon xl 2005) is stuck at 120 MPH. The odometer is still updating and appeared to be working. Any news if this issue is now a bonafide recall? Thanks..
#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!!!
