GMC Envoy: How do you repair a speedometer that has stopped

This answer was rated:

How do you repair a speedometer that has stopped working on a GMC Envoy 2005?
Hello and thank you for trusting me with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your GMC problem.

Is the check engine light on while driving? Does the transmission still shift normally?

Everything work fine except I can't tell how fast i am driving because the speedometer meter is dead.
The failure is then going to be in the speedometer stepper motor itself then. The stepper motor is what moves the gauge needle. There are companies that can fix your gauge cluster for around $125, click here. Or you can attempt this repair yourself. Replacement stepper motors are around $10 each on ebay.
