#1 of 59 Cheverolet Avalanche Speedometer
Dec 09, 2007 (4:14 pm)
I have a 2004 Avalanche. Driving home from work about 2 weeks ago,(which is a 1hr & 10 min drive), all was normal and I was driving 60-65 mph on I-20..when all of a sudden I looked down & my speedometer said 120!! I said what the#$!?...I was close to the dealership where I purchased the vehicle so I pulled in at the service dept. When I turned the truck off, the speedometer was reading 50 (poor thing couldn't make it back down to 0). Showed the service guy & told him what happened. He said he had heard about some speedometers sticking and maybe could replace it up to 70,000 miles but I have 122,000 on mine (hadn't heard about that & mine just started.) I asked what could be done-he said I could replace the instrument panel which would be $500-600 dollars or I could just reset it by turning it on & off. Well, I took the later but you can do that but so long. Went on the Trailblazer forum & saw they are having big time problems with theirs-maybe they stuck a Trailblazer instrument panel on mine.....Has anyone else with an Ava had any trouble with theirs?

I also have had some major issues with my instrument cluster. It started out with my tach stopping, then it went to the speedometer and now the tach doesn't work at all and the speedometr stops working after about driving 20miles. I checked for a recall but none out there. Not sure what to do

If you still have a copy of the recall letter, I sure would appreciate it if you could send it to me also so I could see it. It sure is frustrating to have this problem & unable to have the dealer do something about a problem that is on their part.. I'm glad to know I'm not alone.
