you will need to trace the cable to the top side of the transmission and make sure it is still installed, if it is then the cable may be bad. Good Luck Tim

sounds like the coil spring for the speedometer needle is bad. you can replace it or buy a new instrument cluster. Look at local salvage yards for cheaper price.

1986 Alfa Romeo Spyder. WHen stopped, speedometer shows about 12 mph. At highway speed, it shows about 20 mph. Odomater seems fine.


Phylspilot, my 86 Spider never displayed less than 10 mph. If you look closely, you should see a tiny pin that the needle touches at about 10 mph. That prevents it from ever falling to zero. The needle will not move up until the speed exceeds 10. From my experience, that is normal. In your case, not displaying >20 is NOT normal.

The problem could be a few different things. Since the odometer appears to be working ok (I assume you checked that it racks up the miles at a rate commensurate with your approx speed), the speed needle may be sticking. I had the opposite problem with mine - speed needle okay, and odometer messed up.

I recommend pulling the speedometer housing out of the dash and checking to see if anything is causing the needle to bind. If it isn't, then check the fine spring where the needle is attached to ensure the spring is okay. You should be able to move the needle with your finger smoothly and have it return gently to the start position (in your case 12 mph).

This is a tricky operation. If you remove the needle from the stem, carefully place it back on the stem. Do this without moving the stem. Just reinsert the speed needle on the stem exactly at the small pin that holds the pin at about 10 mph.

Check the entire speedometer housing for cracks. Any crack could be enough to prevent proper operation. (That was the source of my odometer issue.)

Have fun putting it all back together.

Why does my Chevy Silverado get stuck in first gear sometimes at 0 mph


Have you ever had the transmission fluid and filter replaced, do that and see if that cures the problem.

Speedometer is at 50 MPH when stopped


Try this. Turn the key on, do not start the vehicle. Absence the needle on the speedo. It should move down and then back up. Before it moves back up turn off the key. Repeat this until the needle is at zero. Then start the vehicle. If the needle goes back to a spot other than zero, you may have to take it for a quick drive, than the speedo head is likely bad. This is a pretty common an known issue for gm's. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

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 not working on 2002 dodge ram 1500


Removed cluster from dashboard and unplugged & turned the whole cluster clockwise very slowly and needle started moving from 150 mph back down to 0 mph when rotation was completely done. Kept cluster upright while re-installing and plugged back in the plugs on back and everything was fine. Called local Dodge dealer and told me would take 30-45 minutes to reset and would cost approximately $70 to fix. Took about 8-10 minutes of my time and saved myself $70. This may not work for everyone but this was my amazing quick fix thanks to GOD for giving me this thought to try this.

1999 Subaru Forester speedometer not working


About the only way is to diassemble it, but it sounds like it's not wrth doing. Your speedometer is having some real malfunction issues anyway. Might as well get a new one (or used). If you did get the needle to the right place, it's just going to end up in the wrong one again.

Speedometer problems


It may be that the speedo cable has come loose at 1 end and will need to be tightened back up. Sorry but not sure where ends are attached on your car.
