Electrical problem
2005 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 67000 miles

Speedometer has been working intermittently for the last week. Seems with increase in temperature (with a long ride) stops working or stops working correctly. Also a couple times, have noticed smell of electrical or plastic burn probably associated. I have heard from one source that in similar situation dealer replaced instrument cluster as solution. Any other ideas before I replace cluster?

Does your check engine light come on when the speedometer stops working?

No check engine light. Everything else works. It sounds like Chevy (GM) covers this repair on 03-04 up to 70k miles, but not yet 05. I've asked GM for goodwill, but unlikely. Of course, I'm also nearing the 70k mile mark, so this will likely fall on me to fix.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE RIGHT ON THE MONEY, IF NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND SHIFTS OK, THIS ELIMINATES WIRING OR SPEED SENSOR, MUST BE THE CLUSTER.
