    Do you mean the cluster of sensors? Wouldn't the manual gearbox be involved with the transmission and slippage? hmm

    Ah, got it, I misunderstood and googled your manual gearbox being the issue.

    Thank you!

If your speedo isnt working the odometer wont work,if its a manual gearbox it sits just ontop of the diff this can sometimes affect the fuel gauge aswell........

My miles gauge stop working in my 03 Saturn vue

So does the Trip odometer work? Does the odometer work? If you answer is "sort of", does the odometer return to the same mileage every time your 2003 Saturn VUE sits overnight? The VUE has an all electronic odometer sensor that is in the transmission, so you may need to replace that. I also agree with JDCamped that those wires may need replaced, but the mice? I would think burned/shorted in a wiring harnes is far more common and you should see a "Check Engine" light. The cluster just shows the data from the sensors, if they are blank, then that is the cluster.

I have problems with my speedmeter does not work from my trailblazer 2003 i checked the fueses and they are ok

Does your odometer work? If it does, then I would suspect the stepper motor in the instrument cluster that drives the speedometer is bad. If the odometer does not work then the problem is with the speed sensor that is located on the transmission.
