2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012008

Silverado 2500 LS V8 6.0L Gas

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


Speedometer erratic display / failed. Registered a constant speed even when parked and registered max speed when driving slowly. Speed indicator was not accurate.

Researched problem and found a speedometer shop online that repaired it. For $290, they replaced each motor in the indicator assembly, because it would have eventually happened to the other cheaply built indicator motors as well, and they provided a lifetime warranty.

Had to remove the cluster myself but they provided shipping both ways and even sent a mailing label and box. Local speedometer shop wanted $20 more plus other costs. Been working great since then.

Silverado 2500 LT 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,992 miles

Haven't had it fixed yet..GM had the cluster on recall but you had to have it done before 70000 miles or 115000 klms or before 2012 .. I purchased the truck in 2012 used, it was already passed the mileage for the recall . Now GM wants over 500 $ to rebuild or replace the cluster . The part IS DEFECTIVE !! So why is there a limitation on the recall ?
