More than likely there is a speedometer gear on your transmission that has a cable leading to the speedometer. These thiongs go out as they are usually driven from the gears in the tranny via plastic gears in the module. It is not hard to remove-one or two small bolts and it should slide right out. Their also very cheap to buy and replace. Good Luck!

What would cause the speedometer on a 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 to stop working?

On older models it was likely to be a broken cable or one that was disconnected or stripped somehow. On a newer model it might be a malfunctioning sensor or bad electrical connection. It depends on if it was a mechanical speedometer or not. There is a recall on the gauge cluster. Call your Chevrolet dealership and ask for the service department and give them the VIN and they will check and see if yours is covered.
