The places I'd look are: the connectors to the dash, the dash ground and I'd recycle the connector on the computer.  All gauges are fed from the computer.  Make sure the computer is grounded properly, too.

How do I fix my speedometer kilometer distance reading

It has probably been messed with at some stage if you are not the original owner of the vehicle because these items rarely fail.
What is the year and model of vehicle you have?

The car is an automatic.

When you say the speedometer does not work, do you mean the needle is stuck at certain speed or is at zero all the time.. If it is at zero all the time, replace your meter. If it's stuck at certain speed, give it a knock with your fingers. And if that do not work, drill a pin hole with a fine drill just above the position where the needle is stuck and using a fine thin wire, push the needle back to zero position.

I have a 2001 Voyager and recenlty had to have the timing belt replaced. When I got my car back from the mechanic my speedometer needle was below the stopper so I took it back the next day and the mechanic...

My BS meter is pegged. The dash does not need to be touched to do a timing belt, the timing belt is in the engine, so what that has to do with the speedometer???? I would not take my car there as you caught him in a lie. I suspect the battery was disconnected, which is OK and things happen, so tell the customer what the deal is..... So heres what I want you to do. Hold in the trip odometer button, it will read SOF in the display, then it will tell the software numbers, codes, then will read "END" then it will do gauge checking and sweep tests, and the needle should reset to the correct "0" unless the mechanic has totally screwed it up.

Battery changed on 2002 toyota camry, speedometer pegged at 140

Try disconnecting the battery again, only the + side. Wait for 3-5 min before hooking back up. Turn the switch on but not over, then start the car after a few seconds.

Speedometer doesen't always work . It will starting working then will quit.

Check the speedometer cable if it is fitted correctly (from tyres to meter). In worst case open speedometer check the coil and try to give it a twist with your fingers. if the needle doesn't move a bit your speedometer has gone so you have to change your speedometer.

look closly at the needle, there is a pin that the spedo needle sits on when the vechile is not moving. it normally sits on the top of it.
look closely and if it is actually under that pin then, this might sound like a joke, you have to reach execsive speeds to get the needle back to normal position. there are 2 ways to do this, long stretch highway or block up the vechicle and floor it. let me know how it turns out i came across this 5 times in the past year

1998 Honda Civic speedometer nervous on the red light

?? Does it move on the road ? You could have a worn out CV joint that allows the transmission to free-wheel. If that is the case, replace immediatly, or the transmission differential will fail.
