Help with tach and speedometer

Does anyone know of anything simple that i could check to see why my speedometer and tach are sticking. sometimes they will go back to 0 and sometimes they will just stick and start at whatever they were last at. Its under warranty but i HATE being without my truck!!!!! Thanks in advance.

My speedo does that every once in a while. I took it in and they said they have to order a new cluster which could be up to a 2 week wait and you have to leave the truck their so they can order it with the correct mileage. Of course mine started working fine on my drive to the dealership and my warranty will be up in 1000 miles.

It is a known issue. It is much more prevalent when its cold. Tell them you have the problem and get it on order. Your dealer is an idiot, if he has to have the truck to order the cluster...: They pull the mileage using there computer, when they replace the cluster, so that they can reprogram it with the correct Mileage and hours after they replace it.

I had mine replaced, and several other people on here have also.

Kinda sad the truck only has 7000 miles on it. I hope the next one will last a little longer!
