#49 of 80 2004 Yukon XL 1500 Speedometer issue
May 08, 2012 (11:56 am)
I have the same speedometer problem mentioned among many others disappointed GMC Yukon owners. When I contacted the dealer where I bought my vehicle, they quoted me $410.00 to replace the speedometer with a "Remaned Cluster". Another GMC dealer told me the part cost them $200.00, and with labor & reprogramming the new one an additional $210.00. This seems very expensive for a customer to have to spend even if they are are outside their warranty and a speedometer is such an important instrument in your vehicle.
Where else can a GMC owner go to get help with such an important issue and get some reasonable satisfaction with this issue? Any help would be appreciated. I have 199,600 miles on my YUKON and keep good service, tires, oil changes, transmission service, etc... but something like this is disappointing. I called GMC Customer Service and filed a complaint #71-1065424534 . My Yukon 2004 VIN#3GKFK16204G316486 miles 199,600.
I hope to receive some kind of Assistance from GMC in this matter due to it's severity while someone is driving a GMC vehicle and the fact that it's happened with several GM vehicles.
Thanks for all the help.

I see there are a lot of issues with the Yukon Speedometers, glad and sad that I am not the only one. I have a 2005 Yukon XL SLT, VIN# 1GKFK16ZX5J198091, current miles are 57,121. My Yukon was purchased new from Quality GMC in Albuquerque on 7/19/2005. As the weather got cold around Christmas last year, my speedometer stuck at the bottom of the gauge. Over time it went got stuck over the place except the speed I was driving. I know that there was a recall for these in '03, '04 and it appears some '05. Can anyone tell me if there is any recall available for this issue for my vehicle. I now live in San Diego and would like to get this issue fixed.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Your current miles may get yours taken care of so go into the dealership and ask them about it. Mine was over 80K so it didn't apply. I did push it up the chain at GMC and got in touch with the customer satisfaction group and they ended up paying for the part - an entire new dash cluster ($450 I think) and I was only responsible for the labor - one hour at the dealership. I was sitll a little upset that I had to pay fr anything since a speedometer was just strange, but it worked out.

I am having the same exact issue- very frustrating to see that GM seems to not be taking responsibility for fixing for the issue. Mine seems to get stuck occasionally and then it will go back to "normal." is that what most others have experienced? should I have it fixed?

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon and I think I have be through the worst. First of all let me start by saying I have purchased 8 yes I said 8 ( 2 of them being brand new Yuokon Denali from the factory)vehicles from the same salesman at the same dealership. When I got my 2004 Yukon I purchased an extended warranty. All the sudden one day my transmission goes out completly. So I take it in ( by tow truck) and miracously my warranty expired less than 1,000 miles ago. So I have to pay $2,600 for a new one. When I go to pick up my Yukon, I get in and the battery is dead, They say that this is just a coincidence and they give me a jump and I go to the local auto shop and buy a new battery. On my way home I notice that the speedometer is skipping (jumping) every 2-3 miles per hour. So I call back the dealership and they again say that it is a coincidence and want to charge me $550 to fix it. I ask them if they messed with my speedometer cable and they say no. I then asked if they had to undo the cable to replace the transmission and they say yes but they didn't do anything to hurt the cable. Now the speedometer wont move at all. Needless to say it is not fixed. Haven't completly decided how I feel about this. I really like the GMC Yukons just don't know if I can forget how I have been treated by a GMC dealer.
