    Default speedo stuck

    my 04 silverado speed started sticking at 70 and climb to 120 while driving. Now it is pegged all the way and wont drop.

    Sounds like your speedometer head is going bad. A GM scanner can do a gauge reset which may fix the needle but if it keeps acting up you may have to repair the head.

    My speedo went crazy last year, saying i was still going 70 through a small town, when i was in traffic going around 30. GM sent me a recall notice saying that there has been reported signs of the gauge clusters on the '04 models giving false readings on speed and fuel gauges. If I was you I would go and check at your local dealership and see if they still would let you get it fixed, they replaced mine for free, but there was a mileage limit that I just made it under to get the free one (someware in the 70K range if i remember right). Havent had any problems with the new one. I think it was only on the '04 models that had problems my roomate has a '03 and never had that problem.
