No deaths or injuries were ever attributed to the erratic gauges, but owners of the vehicles felt the problem was a safety concern. The incident date indicated is approximate. We set up an appointment and the dealer determined that the instrument cluster was inoperable what a stretch. Be careful not to touch the lamps with your fingers, the oil from your fingers will cause the lamp to overheat and burn out prematurely. After taking out the park lights, I realized the problem was only blown bulbs. The tach will not be accurate if using a cluster from a 4 cylinder, and will not work at all using a cluster from 1996. Complaint Number: 10193862 Incident Date: April 10, 2007 Date Added to File: June 20, 2007 Description of the Complaint: Speedometer on 2004 envoy xuv lease started acting erratically after warranty had run out.
No Idea what it might cost otherwise. The dealer informed him that he would have to go to another city to have his vehicle repaired. Other gauges showing problems e. It shows temp at 220, however the car is sitting in the driveway and has not been moved. Then Speedometer would go to 110 to 0 while driving and now not working.
I've seen thousands of people reporting this on the internet. . The two terminals in the back make it hard. Tachometer showing 7000 rpms when idling, all other gauges positioned in areas below or above there limits, etc. So, last night while driving, using cruise control and on the interstate my speedometer stopped working. What more proof do we need?. Step 2: Disconnect the feed line from the fuel pressure regulator.
I waited until I was sure it would do it for the tech. I called them right back to escalate it further. After seemingly being ok, the first week of Jan. Posted on May 19, 2009 It's a short in the instrument cluster. Use to be minor every once in awhile it needed changing, now its every week, and they can't find that either. They needed to replace the entire cluster. When I talked to the repair shops they said before they can correct the issue under my extended warranty is to see it happen.
Thank you for your time and attention to this dangerous speed control issue. Don't have an owner's manual, get one. Speed limits are posted for safety reasons and if we cant tell how fast we are going do to a faulty instrument panels it puts people in danger. Complaint Number: 10243341 Incident Date: May 1, 2008 Date Added to File: September 24, 2008 Description of the Complaint: Speedometer does not work and dealer won't cover under warranty. Failure now lasted 6 moths - using gps to determine speed. Well, I went to get my fixed they said it wasn't covered under a warrenty and the cost was high at the time so I had to barrow a gps system to use to clock my speed.
I also Have R- brake light issue. Then the speakers and the radio started acting up, work, don't work. This is located on the front corner of the resonator near the battery. If one were to be driving the vehicle at 60mph using cruise control and the speedometer were to all of a sudden peg itself to 20mph, there would be a sudden and abrupt acceleration as the computer in the car attempted to regain 60mph even though the vehicle was already at that speed. The contact notified the manufacturer and was not offered any assistance.
Occurs while driving down the road very sporadic. Then I disassembled the dash and took out the gauge cluster, and to my surprise all the bulbs were blown… Check for a blown fuse. While there might not be a recall on these yet, there needs to be! Are there any recalls on these clusters? The vehicle was not taken to the dealer. Either in the bumper or the cross section directly above the bumper you should find a hole it might have a black plastic cover over it that you can insert the end of the steel rod into. It's random when it happens and random when it stops. Say that BlazerNut sent ya! If turned to far they will go off.
You cant tell how fast your going, if your vehicle is overheating nothing! If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower. Thank you for your time and attention to this dangerous speed control issue. Do I need to remove the steering wheel to get to the components of concern? This appears to be a manufacturing defect that conveniently appears shortly after the expiration of the warranty. Would have to wait until my gas light came on to let me know when I was running lowand when I would put gas in my car, I would have to try and start it 3-4 times before it would start. . I also swapped out the ignition switch assembly too.
Roughly 10% of the time, the gauge will stop working completely. Scheduled to get yet another update call from gm tomorrow. My sister-in-law had the same problem with hers at the same time I did. Complaint Number: 10218931 Incident Date: December 29, 2007 Date Added to File: February 23, 2008 Description of the Complaint: Just another complaint on the speedometer; vehicle now has 50,000 miles, so it's out of warranty and the dealer won't fix. These vehicles should be recalled before someone is seriously injured. Complaint Number: 10223465 Incident Date: October 26, 2007 Date Added to File: April 5, 2008 Description of the Complaint: Speedometer suddenly quit working, showing highway speeds of 95-120+mph, only went down to 20mph at lowest when car is stopped.
Issue if not fixed, the vehicle could stall when driving and lose power. On the highway following traffic flow and speedometer reads 20 mph. They said I needed to take it to the dealership to have it looked at. With regard to number of failures, this is the approximate number of times I initially observed the speedometer reading too low or too high. This happens from your actual speed of 40-60 mph, you look down next second and you are going 100-120 mph per odometer. The failure mileage was 80,000. Each failure lasted for a number of days and then the speedometer seemed to read correctly for a week or two before the next failure.
