Customer reply replied 10 months ago
The check engine light is always on. I've had it looked at but am told they find nothing wrong. It rides fine and shifts fine. I put a rebuilt transmission in it last year,
Buick Mechanic: Gary, Buick Technician replied 10 months ago

if its shifting fine and there are NO VSS codes set the computer is seeing the correct MPH from the VSS

the issue is going to be something internally in the gauge cluster i am sorry to say causing this issue

it would need to be sent out for repairs or replaced to fix this issue
