The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the instrument panel was replaced. At the time my vehicle had approximately 65,000 miles. But of course, check your fuses first rig … ht? The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. Then the next time I drive the truck the offset has changed to 20 mph. And i have noticed also when the cold weather hits the damn truck floods out when started. In August 2006 my oil pressure gage started to malfunction.
Next up you'll need to remove the clear plastic lens. Only way to reset is to turn vehicle on and off 6-12 times over a 30 min period.

Would I be able to fix this myself somehow? Smells rich like the choke is staying shut. Place the circuit board back into the white center housing and snap on the black back housing. You fix the things on your vehicle as you can afford to or if it makes the vehicle totally inoperable. Typically, after it warmed up, the speedometer would become somewhat functional again. This is a safety issue as I cannot be certain at what speed I'm driving. Finally decided to use a test light to check for power. Like an above owner stated, why am I being penalized for driving more than 10K miles a year? This may cause inaccurate readings, including the speedometer and fuel gauge.
On a newer model it might be a malfunctioning sensor or bad electrical connection. Since all gauges appear to have quit at one time I would agree with a previous post that the computer program is flawed. I too wanted to mention that the online video allowed me to remove it without any problems and the replacement was just as easy.

The speedometer is stuck on 45 mph and does not move up or down.
