problem #10

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles
The speedometer one morning just went to 110 mph when I was driving 55 and then stayed. It would work one minute and then not the next. Finally after two days it stayed at 160. There was no way to drive it and tell what speed I was going. I have received a speeding ticket recently and wonder if the speedometer was malfunctioning then. The failure speedometer was 63,000 just 2,000 out of warranty. I went to the dealer who showed me the special bulletin on the 03 and 04 but since mine was an 05 I had to pay $501.30 to have it repaired. I placed an incident w/ GM who had the guts to tell me that there was not an instrument panel failure on the 05 (kinda funny since I have a 05 that failed) and that since my vehicle was not an 03 or 04 that it couldn't be happening. Even though the dealership that fixed it knew right away the problem and admitted I wasn't the first 05 he had seen. The entire instrument cluster was replaced.

Speedometer not working. Not knowing how fast your going I feel is a safety hazzad.

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,460 miles


In October 2007 I purchased a used 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500 hd pickup from a used car dealer with 38,515 miles on it. After the purchase I discovered the vehicle speedometer sticks and does not work properly. Now the instrument panel gauges also appear to not be showing the proper operating temperatures for the transmission. I have received no help to correct the problem other than to tell me to take it to a dealer and pay $600 to have it repaired. I have put less than 2000 miles on the truck and paid over $37000 for the truck. I don't have any money left to fix it and I think it is a safety risk to my family there must be something that can be done to help since it appears there are many complaints on the internet over this problem.

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 121,000 miles
2005 Chevy Silverado 2500hd (duramax diesel). The speedometer suddenly stopped showing an accurate reading while driving approximately 10 mph. It now shows 55 mph while at a complete stop and pegs over 120 mph when driving on the interstate. This is a known issue with the 2004 model year, but I'm not seeing any info yet for 2005 (which is the model I have). This should be a recall from GM to fix this - rather than their tricky little "special" replacement rules that limit the fix to 70,000 miles. This is a huge safety issue - not being able to tell how fast I am traveling at any given time/not being able to trust my instrument panel readings.

Speedometer will read very high speeds when traveling slowly. E.g. 110 mph traveling 30 mph. Happens in cold, cold weather.
