Question about Cars & Trucks
It can be a number of things, but I do believe it is your drive gear in the transmission.

SOURCE: speedo sometimes failed to work
I had this exact problem on my old focus. Its nothing to worry about and its not expensive. Your car has a speed senser underneath the gearbox and a common fault on these cars is for the gearbox to slightly drip oil. When the oil drips it drips right on top of the senser and blocks the speed readings.
The good thing about this is your milage on your car wont go up when the speedo stops working, so when you come to sell it!!!!!!! you get my point.
to fix this problem it cost about £20 if you do it yourself.

think you may have caused the car to go into safe mode.you need someone to plug in a diagnostic computer to erase fault codes in the cars brain. hopefully that will sort it out!

i have the same problem with me 2000 montana. i was told that it was the tcc switch. it means that the torque converter is stuck in the on postion. to fix the problem i was told either to swap out the tranny with another used one or to have the switch replaced. the switch is internal and they need to drop the trans down to access the panel on the front driver side. the part is only $90 but its 3 hours labour.
