 The speedometer and gas guage in my 2004 envoy do not work. just like everyone else here the speedometer in mine sometimes reads over 100 mph when i might be doing 35mph. most of the time it just stays at 0 so i don't know how fast i'm going. the gas gauge just doesn't work at all. i can't afford the repair and from all the other complaints i've seen gm should fix it for free anyway. how many people have to complain before the ntsb will get behind the car owners? one person here said that gm actually won a lawsuit and was compensated for the faulty parts but did not do the recall on the envoys!

 Starting shortly after envoy was bought i noticed that the fuel gauge would show quater tank one, then after shuting off and starting again it was out of fuel and the light was on. in july 2011 the oil pressure gauge went high and it is now pegged and doesn't reset. i asked dealer about it and there was an outragoues price just to diagnose. jan 2012 and now speedometer gauge does not reset, it is stuck at 30 mph and goes up to 85-90 when driving. after researching today i see a service bulletin about the instrument cluster, i never recieved the instrument cluster letter from gm, because envoy wasn't included, but it is the same issues as other vehicle on the service bulletin. please hold gm responsible for these defects.

 Speedometer begin sticking above zero when car was turned off. gradually, the speedo stuck higher and higher, until it remained pegged and ceased to function. soon after, all instruments in the panel successive failed - including fuel gauge, tachometer, oil pressure, and battery level... it appears to be at this point a complete failure of the instrument cluster. most worrisome, the speedometer and the fuel gauge read incorrectly at all all times, if they read at all.

 This is a safety issue in terms of being able to read the instrumentation behind the steering wheel. it is also a fire hazard.

 The problem from what i can tell from researching is the instrument cluster and i have found many forums on the net that people are stating the same issues i am having. the speedometer gets stuck anywhere from 0-120 mph and though i have noticed that no fires or deaths have occurred is this what the nhtsa waiting for? someone to die from this happening? also, the tachometer, oil pressure gauge, and voltage indicator have recently been having issues as well. the issue with this is obviously not knowing how fast you are traveling (ie m.p.h.). i am being told this will be a $450 fix when in fact with as many people as i am reading are having these same issues it seems that gmc should be made to correct the problem themselves. is it because the government has so much invested in gmc that the problem is not being resolved? how many people need to file a complaint before the nhtsa will react? do i need to start posting to all the forums i encounter and get people to sign up? if i am the 55th person with just the '04 gmc envoy complaining about this issue then all the other years and models of gm and chevy from '02 through at least '06 must filing complaints, too. in total there must be enough to at least look into the matter so why are you stalling? a person not knowing how fast they are driving must be a safety issue especially throught school zones and residential areas would you not agree? for us the issue started about a year-and-a-half ago and seems to be getting worse by the week. we may go a day without any incident then it starts happening all over again; it use to be that is would start only on the freeway but now it happens even around town. i will wait for a response from the nhtsa before getting this repaired, but i thought i would have received something about this by now being that i have been seeing info on the net about it for some time now, but i figure i need to get involved before anything is going to change. please respond immediately.

 The cluster gauge quit working. first the gas gauge stopped reading the amount of gas in the tank. second, the speedometer and tachometer quit reading. about a month later the oil pressure gauge stopped working. currently out of the entire cluster gauge system the battery meter is the only gauge that works.

 The temp gauge does not read correctly when the engine is running in the correct temp range. the temp needle is either in the overheating position (red area) or totally past the max temp on the gauge, almost spinning like a compass. because of this false reading i pulled my vehicle over on the shoulder of the interstate, thinking the engine needed to cool down. this was during rush hour traffic, and could have caused an accident on the highway. a search on the internet shows others with the same problem. gmc refuses to replace or fix the guage if vehicle mileage is over 70,000. guages , oil,water temp, etc, are in vehicles to assist the driver with their driving and for safety reasons and should last a lot more than 6 years. pulling over on a highway should only be done for an emergency, not because of a false reading, and may in the future, if it has not already cause an accident.

 Instrument panel cluster issues in 2004 gmc envoy,. headlights and instrument panel lights flicker dim to bright. occurs while driving down the road very sporadic. diagnostic stated faulty instrument panel cluster. issue if not fixed, the vehicle could stall when driving and lose power. mine has started loosing power and stalling. faulty speedometer inaccurate, will go past 120mph or stay on zero, why no recall on these items gm is aware of this but as of today no action has been taken.

 Nothing descriptive led up to the failure. it happened for no reason we know. the problem is consistent and a new one started today. the problem has not been diagnosed or fixed. i found several similar issues on internet for same model and year vehicle today after being notified by wife that another area of same device has malfunctioned.

 Speedometer was on 80mps everytime i started the car, i would turn the motor off sever times to bring it down about 5mps, until that quite working completely. my sister-in-law had the same problem with hers at the same time i did. 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. then the gas gauge went out. 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. my car is in the shop today, and after alot of research i notice alot of people have the same problem, and gmc does not want to take no credit for their error.

 My wife has a 2004 gmc envoy,about 6:00 mar 03 2010 she called me from her truck, saying the odometer said she was doing 95 mph when she was only doing about 55mph after i got her to calm down and pull over. she stop the truck and waited on me to get there. i notice the rpm's was stuck on 6000 the gas was on a 1/4 tank after she said she had put 40$ in the tank 30min ago plus the clock said 12:49 and it was like 7:00 after talking to a few people found out there was with the cluster. was talking to my father who has a 05 gmc truck said there was a recall on the clusters. *tr

 Right after purchasing. engine light has been on. purchased in june/2006, with 40,000miles. 1yr after the rpm gauge quit working, right afterwards,the fuel gauge started messing up, going back & forth,then went out completely, battery/oil gauges are out now. the seat belt lights/airbag lights bing constantly & does not tighten up when put on brakes. when this happens the check gauges light comes on, and at the same time i have difficulty getting it in gear. i am also having trouble setting my cruise control. *tr

 During normal highway driving, the instrumentation panel needle gauges began to malfunction. the speedometer initially registered significantly higher than actual speeds (registered 110+ mph when traveling at ~65 mph) and then stuck at 15 mph regardless of actual speed or when at a complete stop. the tachometer also began to register higher than actual rpm, showing 6,000+ rpm even when the vehicles engine was returned to idle or turned off. other gauge malfunctions include the oil pressure gauge which would also intermittently register higher than actual pressure. without either a functioning speedometer or tachometer, it is very difficult to estimate actual vehicle speeds and maintain a safe driving speeds. have contacted a local gmc dealer regarding this issue and have not yet identified a remedy. *tr

 I purchased a 2004 envoy off the showroom floor. first issue was an erratic speedometer, then non-working gas gauge, now it is all gauges. i have a picture with the car in park showing 15 mph, the digital reading shows a full tank of gas but the gauge needle is below empty and also no oil pressure or temperature. the entire cluster is faulty, not just one gauge. *tr

 Speedometer on 2004 gmc envoy slt quit working. i found that this is a very common problem with gm vehicles, however they have not issued a recall for it. i feel that this could be a huge safety issue and that they are aware of it but continue to ignore complaints. knowing your speed is extremely important when driving. *tr

 I purchased a used 2004 gmc envoy slt, with an extended warranty from grand prix auto group, hicksville, ny in august 2008. soon after purchasing the car it stalled while we were at a red light. immediately brought the truck back to the dealer and they said they fixed it, may i mention it never stopped stalling. then the speedometer broke again. it constantly says i'm traveling 120 miles an hour. once again, brought it back to the dealer, they tell me i need to go to a gmc dealer, i do, they replace the information cluster and speedometer, had to pay a $ 300.00 deductible. this was in march 2009. driving the other day october 2009 and the speedometer once again says 120. get pulled over, get a ticket for a broken speedometer. the officer was aware i was not traveling at that speed, and even when i tried to explain, wanted to hear none of it. so now here i am again, broken speedometer, engine that stalls often and a summons to boot. i need help and i don't know where else to turn the dealerships are of no help. jacqueline king *tr

 The speedometer on my 2004 envoy has been inaccurate at least 5 times in the last 9 months. i noticed that this problem arises when there is a spike or dip in temperature outdoors. for over 24 hours the speedometer was stuck at 120 mph. the speedometer corrects itself over the course of 4 or 5 days depending on how many starts and stops i make around town. i see that gm isn't going to claim any responsibility on this matter so i just pay very close attention to my speedometer when driving and stay in the slow lane. can't afford to pay the big bucks for their mistake. *tr

 I have 2004 envoy have had problems with alternator. started about 6 months after i bought the envoy had i replaced 3 times then started having problems with back seat window on passenger side not rolling up. then my girlfriend had a flat on side of road and could not get spare down i had to go out and cut the cable that holds it up. that is a unsafe thing to do on side of hwy should not take 45 min to get spare down. headlights dim and brighten gets dim enough that makes hard to see. *tr

 My 2004 gmc envoy has developed an erratic speedometer. the speedometer reflects inaccurate speeds causing an unsafe driving condition. i contacted my local gmc dealer who researched to find no recall concerning this problem i then submitted my complaint to the bbb hotline and was rebuffed their also. i have consequently done additional research and have found that gm has issued a special coverage adjustment bulletin for 2003-2004 cadillac escalade, chevrolet avalanche, silverado, suburban and tahoe, gmc sierra and yukons. the speedometer unit in these models are very similar in both appearance and are manufactured by the same supplier gm uses. the adjust bulletin is #07187 dated september 28,2007 and covers the condition for a period of 7 years or 70,000 miles regardless of ownership. after visiting many gmc and chevrolet chat rooms it is readily apparent that this problem is very common and will eventually result in a fatal accident. i am requesting that the nhtsa formally investigate this problem before this happens. *tr

 Problem started out as erratic reading with speedometer. after approx. 5 days speedo finally wouldn't register at all took vehicle to authorized dealer to be repaired - $555.00 charge to replace instrument panel and reprogram. called gm for financial help as i noticed there were alot of failures with gmc suv's and pick-up trucks. gm would not acknowledge there was a problem which i feel is totally disingenuous. speedometer is necessary to be working as a safety issue. because i was out of state at the time of part breakdown i felt i had no choice but to have problem fixed before my return trip home (1250 miles). judging how many other envoys have had same problem, i feel gm is dodging their responsibility i noticed that there has been class-actions against them for the same problem. *tr

 I began experiencing problems with the instrument panel on my 2004 gmc envoy a few months ago. the entire panel would go out and all the gauges bottomed out. i could not tell my speed, gas level, rpms, etc. the panel would stay out for a few days then return to normal. also on occasion the speedometer would stick at 60 mph and only correct itself if i pulled over and turned the truck off then back on. finally, about two weeks ago the entire instrument panel went out and has never come back on. i have dropped it off at the dealership for service and am awaiting their response. this problem has caused me to run out of gas twice because i was unable to judge my fuel level. luckily both times i was in an area with easy access to the shoulder of the road. i currently have approximately 55,000 miles on my truck. (i can't be sure of this, however, since the odometer is a part of the panel that is out.) this is a serious and, according to my research, recurring problem the gmc should be forced to correct and pay for. *tr

 I have a 2004 gmc envoy in which the speedometer has stopped working. i researched this on the internet and it is a common occurrence. i almost caused a wreck because the speedometer said i was going faster than i really was and the cars behind me almost ran into me. this is a safety issue that i feel should be investigated. could you please assist w any recall measures. it costs over 500.00 to replace this. *tr

 My 2004 gmc envoy mph and rpm gauges are not working properly, i called the dealership and an extended warranty was put on all gmc/chevy trucks and suv for the dashboard cluster except for the envoy, any newer models. the part is at least 500 and advised can only be done by dealership due to programming. im furious, my truck is only at about 53,000 miles. this defect needs to be under recall for the envoy asap! *tr

 1. i purchased a 2004 envoy. the dealer i purchased it from had it under warranty. 2 weeks after i purchased, the interior lights were coming on and off, the automatic door locks started to lock by themselves simultaneously. non stop. it scares my children, as well as i, because i don't know if it's going to spark a fire or what. sometimes it does it more than others, for example, when it rains, but it only does it when i roll the driver's side window up. even if its not down and i roll it up it does it. as well as if i hit a small pot hole and sometimes it just does it on its on. i've taken it to a gmc dealer 4 or more times and they can't find the problem any where. so, nothing has been done to fix this problem because no one can find a solution. i park my $18,000 vehicle next to the road in case it does spark a fire. please inform me if anything is available or who i need to contact at gmc to find an answer. *tr

 The mph and rpm gauges not working. i can be sitting at a stop light and it shows my 2004 envoy is going 70 mph. also the rpm gauge will say 0 rpms when i am going at any speed. we have repeatedly disconnected the positive cable to reset the gauges. i am afraid i will get pulled over because i have no idea what speed i am going. has anyone else had this problem? *nm

 I have been experiencing headlights, interior lights, lighting in the dash, and other lighting flicker while driving. it appears to be happening more and more. the lights become very dim and then get bright again in a matter of a few seconds. this is getting to be dangerous as people tend to pull over in front of me and sometimes traffic in going in the opposite direction coming towards me will pull of the road all thinking that i am flashing them either due to an emergency or just some wild driver behind the wheel. i had taken my vehicle to the dealer but he states he can not find anything wrong. of course he also stated they took it for a ride but it does not happen for them. i guess not, it is hard to see lights flickering in the sunshine. *nm

 Dt*: the contact stated while exiting the off-ramp of the highway at 20-25mph, the check engine and reduced power light illuminated and there was a loss of all vehicle power. although the engine restarted after several attempts, the vehicle was towed to the dealer for inspection. the dealer determined the accelerator sensor needed to be replaced. afterwards, the loss of power persisted and the accelerator sensor was again replaced by the dealer as well as the computer. additionally, the horn intermittently worked, but the horn was not inspected.

 I bought my gmc envoy in january 2004 for approx. $42,000. this car has everything. after about 2 months of the purchase, my gps went out and had been fixed twice. my brakes do not always work --sometimes they slip especially when i need them most -which is scary. gmc said that they have heard about this problem before, but did nothing to resolve the problem. the engine stalls periodically. gmc said they do not know why. the gas gauge and odometer do not work properly. when i brought my vehicle into north county gmc dealership in san diego for repairs i mentioned my gas gauge did not work along with many of the other issues. after they repaired the odometer by replacing the cluster, the gas gauge still did not work. every single time these problems happen i am forced to pay a $100 service charge just so they can look at it and because i am in sales, i am also forced to get a rental car. after all this, i am still quite displeased with gmc. i hate to say it but they are supposed to be the best american car

 First of all my odometer gauge stopped operating. it remained on zero miles while i was driving the vehicle since november 2005. the whole dashboard cluster had to be reinstalled. secondly; the service engine soon light began popping on and the envoy was driving rough. i found out from a gm dealer that the clutch fan froze which caused the water pump to break and the radiator to over heat burst the radiator hose and spew out and leak all of the water and radiator fluid from the radiator. the envoy is now not drivable. i have only had this 2004 envoy since november of 2003. *nm

 Headlights, driving lights and all interior lighting dim and flicker approx every 30 seconds. has been this way for over 10 days, dealer cannot diagnose problem until the service engine soon light comes on, which it hasn't. it is nearly impossible to drive at night with dim, flashing, headlights, and is confusing to other drivers. also, a fan can be heard blowing off & on approx once every minute, and this is with the vehicle completely turned off and the key out of the ignition. this is constant, i'm concerned the battery will be dead and the car won't start, or that the lights will completely go out while i am driving at night. rear passenger door locks suddenly stopped working with the remote and the door unlock switch on the driver's door. i have to climb over the front seat into the back to physically unlock the door to remove my children from the car. *nm

 I own a 2004 envoy. i had taken the vehicle in for service previously for electrical issues. the headlight and interior lights would constantly flicker as you drove. the drivers door also locked itself when exiting the vehicle. the problems were intermittent, happening about 3 to 4 times a month. since the problems persisted, i again took the vehicle for service. another electrical problem had arisen also. the horn, at times, would not work. again this was an intermittent problem. the dealer said they could not locate the problem unless it was occurring when they had they were checking it. i called gm customer assistance to file a complaint. they then talked with the dealer. the car was kept for several more days and returned with the diagnosis that the problem could not be located since it was not occurring when they had the vehicle. they did note that the horn had quit working and then started working again while they had the vehicle but were still unable to diagnose and correct. i contacted gm customer assistance and was informed them i considered these problems a safety issue, since i was unsure if the flickering condition in the lights might cause them to go out while driving, and the fact the horn may or may not work when needed. i was informed there was nothing else they could do unless the problem became consistent. *jb

 Headlights, interior lights, all lights on vehicle flicker while driving on the highway. the vehicle does this when there is no apparent load on the electrical system (i.e. blower, defroster, ac, power seats, windows etc.) the lights become very dim and then bright again in the matter of a few seconds. this can be dangerous to vehicles in front of you and approaching as they believe they are getting flashed by your vehicle. it is very unnerving driving with this random occurrence. *nm

 Upon attempting to start the vehicle, all the dash board warning lights and turn signal indicators came on and stayed on. all the gauges started acting erratically and all the needle indicators started jumping at random. when i turned off the vehicle and tried to start the vehicle again, the vehicle started without any problems. the very next time i tried to start the vehicle; it did the very same thing as mentioned above (gauges acting erratically, etc.). i attempted to start the vehicle several more time each time with the same result. finally the vehicle started and no further problems were experienced. i drove the vehicle for approximately 1200 mile over the next few days. yesterday, i was driving home at a speed of approximately 35 mph when the vehicle suddenly and without warning quit. i coasted to a safe spot on the shoulder of the road. i tried multiple times to restart the vehicle. each time the vehicle exhibited the same symptoms as mentioned above e.g. gauges acting erratically. after about 5 min. the vehicle started normally and i was able to drive home. in my driveway i attempted to start the vehicle several time. each time the vehicle exhibited the same symptoms as mentioned above e.g. gauges acting erratically. upon consulting with a local mechanic and a local dealer, i was informed the problem was most likely a bad ignition switch. the vehicle is currently having the switch replaced. *jb

 The blower motor on our 2004 gmc envoy quit working and upon taking it to the dealer to repair, the dealer indicated that the blower motor resistor and the wiring harness that plugs into the resistor had melted together. when attempting to order the two parts (resistor and wiring harness), it was determined that the wiring harness is on nationwide backorder. the service manager also indicated that he has 5 others on backorder. from that comment, he indicated that there is a major issue with the wiring harness and resistor melting together on a national basis. the fact that the heat was so great to melt these two components together clearly indicates a possible fire and safety hazard. i believe it's something that should be investigated and a recall issued. *jb
