Question about 1988 Buick Regal

1999 Buick Regal Speedometer needle is stuck

The battery went dead and after recharging it and turning the car on I noticed the speedometer needle is stuck under the tab, so It's not moving up at all. What should I do to fix this? Should I unhook the battery and rehook it and see if it goes back to where it should go?

you may have to take a magnet and put it over the speedometer needle and move the needle back to zero,this some times happens when a battery is connected as the voltage surge causes the needle to bounce some times to far and its not able to return to zero.you may need to have the system checked for proper charging,the voltage could be borderline causing the light to come on.you can try disconnecting the battery as it may reset the light.

Speedometer needle bounce when turn signal is on.


The speedometer sensor - VSS - vehicle speed sensor is a input to the PCM - powertrain control module -engine computer . The signal from the PCM to the instrument cluster for speed info. is sent on a serial data communication network (class 2 ) I would think it would be an instrument cluster problem . Get a used one from a auto salvage yard 15 - 20 bucks an see if it fixes it . If it does ,send your's out an have it repaired .

Speedometer needle is stuck behind the pin


Here is how it happens, The positive battery cable was loose, after adjusting the battery cable the speedometer needle went under the retention ping.
How to fix it:
1- remove the positive battery cable
2- have a person to look at the speedometer needle
3- Make the battery cable to touch the positive terminal of the battery (this will make the needle to jump over the retention pin)
4- Tight cable again.
