2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #3

Speedometer not working at all reads over 120 mph even when turned off. All windows get stuck when trying to close them.

problem #2

Nov 152006

Avalanche 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
1) I haven't replaced anything, or done anything that would cause this to happen. 2) A-problem that im experiencing is that when my Avalanche is sitting still in the driveway the speedometer shows that I am doing 30 to 40 miles per hour. When I drive on the freeway it completely stops working and goes to over 120 mph. B-my drivers side window doesn't work either, the motor slowly started giving out about two months ago. Now it doesn't work at all. It seems like many more Chevy Avalanche owners have the same issue; 3)the only thing I did for the window not working was check some fuses that were good.

problem #1

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
Power passenger window failed. Cable frays and jams in mechanism, window will not go up or down requiring costly replacement of the mechanism. This same failure occurred on my previous 2002 Avalanche and my sons 2000 Silverado pickup. The window was used very infrequently on all three vehicles.

- West Bloomfield, MI, USA
