Q: speedometer on 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The speedometer works fine for a while and then it slowly goes down to zero. What is strange is the cruise control works fine all the time. When I'm stopped at a stop sign, I hear a clicking.

I had this problem as well the first thing that I did was to replace the speed sensor. This did not fix the problem the next thing that I did was to replace the instument cluster and this seems to have fixed the problem.

The reason that I mentioned the speed sensor is that replacing this component is much cheaper than replacing the insrument cluster. Speed sensor $28.00 Instrument cluster $320.00. I hope this helps you with your problem.
This is very common on the 03-06 Trailblazers. The cause is the motors behind the gauges are failing, they all go out eventually. You can get it repaired here - www.drspeedometer.com and there's a DIY guide here - www.howtorepairmyinstrumentcluster.com
