check the connection that is on the transmission if you have a real cable then check the end to make sure the cable connections are not broke. look at the speedometer then spin the cable with your fingers the speedometer should bounce if not then cable is broke also check the ends usuall the end by the trans gets stripped out. a speed sensor will also make the meter not work if you have that kind of vehical.
The needle bounce may be related to the cable, it may be broken or just needs lube. Remove the speedometer cable, locate the connection at the transmission and unscrew it, then locate the connection at the rear of the speedometer, remove the cable from the car, pull cable out of plastic housing and see if it comes out in two parts, if it does then cable needs replacing. You will see the cable has two ends, is the cable is broke replace it, a broken cable will sometimes spin and not spin causing needle to jump, also a binding cable will do the same, if cable is good then spray wd40 in to cable and spin by hand. note; if cable is binding you will need to work it so it does not break. good day
if your odameter quit working your cable probally broke.A new cable should fix it. by unhooking it you can pull the cable out if its broke if you spin it and it works then not cable.possible failure in dash panel
this is a speedometer cable problem, there is a cable that goes from your transmission to what would be the back of your dash lights. Remove this cable by unscrewing it from the transmission, not from behind the speedometer. then take the wire that cable is wrapped around connect it to a power drill, spin it and see if your speedometer gives any type of a reading. Then remove the other end of the cable, take the whole thing to either a junkyard or autoparts store, get a new one, install the new one....problem solved! :)
if i were you disconnect speedo cable both ends sit some one in car to see if cable is internally turning? if so good! now take small hex key spin speedo cluster to see if it moves speedometer arm if so put it back together and replace speed sensor usually located at speedo cable input at transmission have a great day!John
