2004 GMC Sierra 2500hd, instrument panel started showing the rpm's to be in the red zone, then the speedometer would quite working, then the gas gage would quite working, then the temperature gauges quite working, to begin with it would happen periodically till it quite working completely. Took it to repair shop and had fixed. I know two other people that this has happened to also with the same vehicles only a year or two apart. All of which happened between 80,000 and 110,000 miles. Feel it is a safety concern, when I was doing 75mph on the highway and saw my rpm's pegged in the red and was in a hurry to pull off to the side of the road to prevent my engine from blowing up. Same with the temp gauges.

Gm mailed a notice that the instrument panel in 2004 sieera trucks is subject to failure including fuel gauge, speedometer, etc. These can be very serious safety concerns depending on driving conditions. Gm has offer to extend the warranty to 70,000 miles or 7 years. This totally unacceptable from a safety standpoint.

Warranty extension on instrument cluster on 2005 Sierra 2500hd doesn't cover either truck I own because mileage is over the 70k limit. This problem has been around for years but service extension is no help now.

The speedometer on my 2004 GMC Sierra has been sporadically working. I have been researching it and have realized that it's not only my problem but a problem with GMC's and chevy's and I think that something needs to be done about it. I don't know what speed I'm going when I'm traveling down the road. It says 20 but I could be doing 80 for all I know. How many complaints does it take for you to make a recall?.

My 2004 GMC Sierra speedometer started acting up. Showing more than 20 mph over actual rate of speed and stuck at higher than zero when not driving. I feel it is ridiculous that I have to pay for replacement of this defective part when I have only 20,000 miles on my vehicle. Yes only 20k! I drive it infrequently but I am out of my 3yr warranty. This is a known problem that gm needs to address!.

Instrument cluster inoperative. 2003 GMC Sierra pick up. Received a letter from gm and due to the mileage they will not repair the cluster even though the vehicle is within the date range. The mileage listed is not reasonable since they only allow 10k per year. They were called when I received the letter at 104k and now at 111k they can only apologize for the problem but not fix it under warranty. I feel it is a safety issue but they do not. So I am having it fixed for almost 600 dollars with no help from gm. This should be a recall since they knew of the problem and it has occurred enough to warrant sending out letters notifying the owners of a potential problem.

My 2004 Sierra's speedometer doesnt register speed properly. Sometimes it sticks at one speed like 60 or 70 regardless of speed, or will rest at a number when the vehicle is motionless and proceed upward as the vehicle increases speed. This is very unsafe. Sometimes it works for a while if I can get it to fall back to zero, but that doesnt last long. It eventually quits functioning properly.

I have an 04 GMC Sierra with about 80,000 miles on it now, I bought the truck with 70,000 and at about 73,000 miles the speedometer started sticking. I would be doing 65 and then I would come to a stop the speedometer would not go back down. So I started my truck repeatedly until the needle went back down to 0. About a week later it did it again, and again the next week, and now this has been the 4th time it has happened and it will no longer work. I read in one forum that there was supposedly a recall about it but I looked online all over the place and found nothing. This should definitely be a recall because this seems like a very common problem that is not very cheap to fix (550. 00 plus 150. 00 for programming) at my local dealership. I am in college I cannot afford that!!!! * and I also got a speeding ticket so thank you gm!.
