Often only the front doors would like, leaving the back doors and rear door unlocked. In june of this year I noticed sometimes that when I would look at the speedometer it would say that I was doing about 40 mph, when I knew that I was not going that speed. The speedometer is part of it and couldn't be changed independently. My sister owns a 2005 Yukon that she just purchased still under warranty and her instrument panel was just replaced last week. Need to do some voltage checks when the problem occurs. While I was driving it would register over 120mph.
I have not been able to fine any recall on this matter. Six months later while driving approximately 25 mph the speedometer indicated he was traveling at 120 mph. The gasoline gauge functioned intermittently. Take the cable loose from the transmission and remove the gear. I can be going pretty fast just setting stopped at a stop light sometimes.
During the next month I have had numerous, sporadic incidents where the speedometer will freeze up while driving. The contact stated he received an informational letter from the manufacturer in regards to the instrument cluster. There are antique cars still on the road that don't have this problem. You will find a fuse puller in the fuse box next to the driver side door. We paid for a replacement and shortly after the replacement it started doing the same thing the other panel did. I replaced the battery and the problem seems to disappear.
The dealer advised the dealer had extended the warranty for repairs to vehicle with less than 70,000 accrued miles. Picked up the car and the odometer reading is different by more than 20,000 miles. May be that the cluster itself is bad. Sometimes on the highway I am passing everyone and have no clue as to how fast I am going. Need to do some voltage checks when the problem occurs.
Apparently the stepper motors moving the needles are failing. While driving at various speeds, the speedometer gave incorrect readings. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic. Initially the deviation is only 3-4 mph, but over time will worsen. Sometimes it would work just fine, but sometimes it would read 120 mph when I was parked, or sometimes it would read 0 mph when I was going about 65 on the highway.
This will not reset the radio and clock. Complaint Number: 10185129 Incident Date: November 12, 2006 Date Added to File: March 15, 2007 Description of the Complaint: 2004 yukon denali xl. Dealers are to replace the instrument panel cluster after the condition has been verified. No driveability problem even when this happens. Or, did they put a used board in? Then it got to where it would not move at all till I had driven some , then it would start working right.
I consider this a safety issue and it should not have a limit on mileage. It has not stopped working all the way and is stuck at 140mph. If there was a problem before they knew it that sooner or later we would have a problem with the speedometer. This time I took it to the dealer. This requires some disassembly to get the speedometer out of the dash. No use of anything on dash.
Dealership does not want to help unless you pay a high fee to see whats the problem! Later, other gauges such as oil pressure and water temperature also stopped working completely. This is a very common problem with these gm vehicles and is known by gm. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but was not repaired. I have a gps that tells me how fast I'm going so I can still drive it but something needs to be done before someone gets hurt or freaks out behind the wheel. Speedometer remained stuck on 36 mph for 2 days. The failure mileage was 101,000 and current mileage was 110,000.
It is my understanding that this is a very common complaint by owners of vehicles containing these types of faulty instrument clusters. According to the speed odometer we were going the speed limit. This is more than likely the cause of a speeding ticket I got back in may 2009. As a result, the contact was not able to read any of the gauges except for the speedometer. Lately, the amp gauge failed however amperage is not affected. Not sure where to go from here, but something sure isn't right. I took it to the mechanic, he tested the speed sensor which often seems to be the culprit and said it was working fine.
She received a letter that stated there was a defect in the vehicle. The dealer advised the dealer had extended the warranty for repairs to vehicle with less than 70,000 accrued miles. Had the same thing on my Chevy Tahoe. The car has 70,000 miles on the odometer which I am assuming is accurate. All the gauges stopped working and we have to tap on it to get it to work and now it has gotten even worse and I feel that there should be a recall on these because why should we continue to spend our money on getting replacements and they do the same thing. Each time after I would restart the vehicle the speedometer would drop slightly about 5 - 10 mph at a time till it reached 36mph, then it would not drop any lower. The contact stated that all the gauges on the instrument panel were no longer functional.
