Re: needles for all the meteres on dashboard are not...
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.

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.
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.
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
