2009 Chevrolet Colorado speedometer stuck

2001 chevy colorado speedometer is stuck at 90

Slow down? Or doesn’t that work? What was the question? Oh, yeah, there wasn’t one. Did you have one?

“but officer, I couldn’t have been doing 90. Look the speedometer still says 90!!”

Could be the stepper motor for the speedometer

A mechanic with a professional level scan tool should be able to “sweep the gauges” as part of his diagnosis

A $300 tool won’t perform these kind of tests, by the way

So either pay for a proper diagnosis or get your hands on a decent scan tool
