Brandy Lindsey: I have a 2005 impala and I'm having these problems. I thought it was
because it was cold outside and the car wasn't wormed up long enough before
driving. I'd but one day I let the car run 10-15 minutes before driving
it.. nope still happening. I have to keep turning my key switch over as if
I'm going to crank the car then back to off I keep doing this until it goes
all the way down to 0. I love my car but I hate this problem driving down
the road doing 45 and speed hand just goes crazy their should be a recall
on this being I'm not the first to experience this problem
matsi hound: I have a 2004 Impala that I love. However, it flooded in a Tropical Storm
and fried my electrical system, and I have been having this problem ever
since. It affects my speedometer and my temperature gauge, but only
sporadically. So far, only the temp. gauge has gone around that far, and
sometimes my speedometer just doesn't move at all, but I made a video of
myself sitting at a stop light surrounded by cars so that everybody could
see I was in fact not moving while my speedometer said I was going 72 mph.
So, what ever came of your issue? Did they fix it, or did you get rid of
your car? I have 247,XXX miles on my Impala and besides the fact that I
occasionally have to use my phone to see how fast I am going, I still love
my car 11 years later. I've been all around the country with it and it has
never had me thumbing it. Just wish I could get somebody to fix my
elias morales: i have the same problem with my 04 impala but i just change the speed
sensor hope that fixt my problem
Aj Kelly: Just kidding, I commented that before you stopped the car... So sorry about
DFWTF: Hey have a question if I do this myself and replace it with a new or refab
part will I have to reprogram my Mileage
Aj Kelly: Was it set to km/h? XD
Kirby Suzanne: My 2005 Impala did the same thing and i used my phone as well for
speedometer..... Should have been a recall. After a wile ALL my guages went
MrTenGrand: The problem was most likely in the stepper motors behind the cluster.
Actual little motors that work off of the voltage delivered to them which
control the needles. I did mine myself, but I have soldering experience as
you have to de-solder the old motors and solder the new ones to the board.
Idk the price on the motors themselves now but they were cheap when I
bought mine and of course I saved money by doing it myself because as you
may know you have to remove almost the entire dash to replace the radio
much less get to the cluster. The only thing you cant do after replacing
the stepper motor is calibrate it. I just zero'd mine out and it was close
enough. Btw its recommended you replace all the motors depending on how
many gauges u have, at once b/c its a pain in the ass to get to the damn
Adrian Nava: I've been using a speedo app for two years now. I think my temp cauge is
Zimmer Roberts: And it has the same thing as 2002 Tahoe.
Zimmer Roberts: Eric's 2004 odyssey speedometer wont work sometimes, and it works
Anton Dyckyns: NOT TRUE, you can rebuild GM instrument clusters at home. I just replaced
6 GM gauge stepper motors and all the surface mount bulbs last night for
$30 in parts online and a $14, 25W solder iron desoldering kit. on my 2004
GMC. look up HOW TO GM stepper motor replacement and disassembly. The
little plastic motors turn into rattles after 120K and the hair-sized gear
teeth fail. Motors are only $3 each - kits for as little as $15-20 on
eebay or amozan. Funny video though...
Adrian Nava: So what did they end up charging you? Watch out too for your ground wire to
your power windows, the ground will break and windows will stop working. I
just had to fix that by connecting the ground again.
mandyw84: My 2005 Chevy Impala speedometer doesn't work anymore. The gas and speedo
guages don't work at all anymore how can I fix it?
lonewolf1989v2: and that's after the car has been running a good 20 mins, I'm taking mine
to the dealership where I bought it at today(chevy dealer thankfully) and
hopefully they will help me with this problem or I'm going to have to
borrow more money from my bank again.
mdforsberg49: had 6 fleet impalas all horse crap gm is good at advertising not at making
cars all 6 never made it 80k miles before issues 5 had transmissions in
them at 120k miles was the furthest one made it the other one number 6 had
a 3.4 v6 engine which blew up so we got rid of it not one made it to
160k.......... will never own a gm again had an envoy dash is cracked to
crap at 40k miles..... never again
davesgarage512: No just the Speedometer
adr427: I had the same problem with my truck speedometer and so I sent it at
chevyspeedo . com and he fixed it in 1 day. When i got it backed everything
worked just fine! If you need to contact him ask him here 972-215-7777
mikey mouse: they can be fixed I fixed mine
lonewolf1989v2: I will never own a honda or toyota becasue i don't like the styling of
their cars, just my own preference. Also every car I have owned has been a
GM or Ford and all of them have been very reliable. Never once has the 3800
series II by GM let me down. I have drove a honda and a toyota and I don't
mind driving their cars, I just prefer my Chevy's. I have been and always
will be a GM or Ford owner.
Mr The Ham 2: My Suburban had a similar problem, and had to replace the stepper motors.
little tiny brushes wear out :P
ahmed el tawil: chevrolets are always known to be unreliable cars. if u want a car that is
cheap and reliable go with toyota or honda.
Holly Huber: So I have a legit question! I have a 2004 chevy Impala also. My speedometer
went out and I got it fixed. But now my RPM gauge has done he same thing.
Do you have any tips?
lonewolf1989v2: Your welcome and thanks for the advice, the dealership is replacing the
part for me free of charge, I just have to pay for the labor. They keep
these parts on hand now because they've had it happen enough times to start
keeping them around. I'm just happy they are fixing it, I love impalas
after all this is my second one. My 2003 Impala LS didn't have this problem
hammer20061988: Was ur fuel gauge off as well
Stupid Epic Video!: @kidafoloo ME TOO AND J LOVE FORDS
tammy lunsford: My aunts old 96 accord speedometer wouldn't work.but all the other 1s did
andre richmond: your in better shape than me.my speedometer and gas gauge dont work..but im
putting a new one in myself as soon as i get the part.you can get them at a
junk yard but make sure they match because the base impala and the ls
impala are different
Doc187 XL: my speedo does this too i just change the speed sensor and it still does it
now i gotta get the cluster fix
davesgarage512: @StupidEpicVideo Fords are for derbying! Lol!
Country Boy: love the 2000-2005 impala never seen one on the side of the road once for a
flat tire thats it
makuwalkbowlegg: Atleast yours move,neither one of my gauges not working now. I have a 2005
Chris Stickney: Well hopefully this helps others that read this cause I am sure you already
bought the entire cluster. Each gauge has what is called a stepper motor
and can be replaced for about 5 dollars per gauge. There are plenty of vids
on youtube to show you step by step on how to do this. Hopefully someone
benifits from this and doesn't blow several hundred dollars buying an
entire cluster which you most likely don't need. Oh and by the way the
parts you are looking for is x27 168 stepper motor (Ebay)
davesgarage512: Im a little lost on this question
Mitchell Kirkland: my dads 03 silverado work truck did that right before he got rid of it, it
was 30 when we were 0
davesgarage512: @TheNonTriumph92 No you don't. But I would check with the place you got it
from. They may pay to have it fixed. Or look on eBay I have seen them on
there too. But I hope this helps you out. Thanks for the comment!
EnviroRico: PS - I have the 04 Impala LS with a 3.8 L engine
mikey mouse: I replaced all my motors and all the lights at the same time for 50 bucks,
you best not mess with it if you don't know what you are doing or it will
end up costing you a lot more.

these is what I do for a living. Dead Gauge, LLC Our business is fixing
gauges! If you have any questions about faulty or broken gauges or

Stupid Epic Video!: SPEEDER! btw why did u buy a chevy if u couldve bought a ford
davesgarage512: That's great to hear that its getting replaced! Best of luck to you and
Thanks For The Comment!
Junebug Abeyta: o i meant fuse u know what i meant but yea problem solved thanks
davesgarage512: @sdgtuefgv well you should check out one of my newest vids.... Derbying on
the mind? You should like that one about these cars. Thanks for the comment!
EnviroRico: I fixed mine by ordering the stepper motors - 6 for $20. My fuel gauge was
sticking as well. Easy to rip dash apart and remove cluster and easy to
take cluster apart. Desoldering stepper motors alittle more work but again
not hard. All is fixed and working well now.
Jim Rogers: if you are not covered, after 80k, you need the dash repaired.
autoxpresstech does a great job.
davesgarage512: It was covered do to I just got it. THANK GOD!
carloscastillo1990cc: dude your hilarious with your sarcasm... thanks for the tip
davesgarage512: Ops I didnt see two comment! But do the same thing I did and say it a
"Safety Issues"... Thanks for the comments!
veronika37able: dave do you think if a change the vss the problem is gonna fix?
Bruce McCormick: thanks for sharing this i was looking at a 2004 Chevrolet Impala but not
sure know it has 127,600 miles so i think i am going to rethink this idea
