2003 Z71 Tahoe Speedometer works part of the time, most of the time it stays around the 120 mark.

Asked by Jun 26, 2009 at 02:17 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A year ago I had the transmission worked on by a Chevy Dealer.  Very soon afterwards (a couple days, if that) the speedometer began malfunctioning.  It started off by sticking at a speed, now it will move and stick there then work it's way back to zero, but most of the time it likes to live out near the 120 mph area.  Could they have not connected something properly at the dealer when they worked on the tranny?

There is a special policy regarding that covers 03-04 pick up trucks(tahoes, escalades etc included) for unlimited mileage 2005's are covered for 110000km. And theres nothing the dealer could have done to make this happen everythings digital in there now all the dealer has access to really is programming the cluster

Thanks for the info. My 2005 tahoe just started doing this and it has about 51k miles on it.

GM has a recall on them if they're under 70,000 miles. The stepper motor is going bad, so you can find a service on ebay that rebuilds them, or buy a new cluster and get it programmed.
