Either the gauge is toast...or more than likely, your cable is having problems at the tranny. Check for damage to the cable at the transmission housing. And, if you have speed ratio attachment where the cable goes into the tranny....that might be going bad.

Odometer doesn't move and RPM is showing while engine is on.


LOL! SIMPLE STUFF! FIRST FIGURE OUT IF YOUR CAR HAS AN ELECTRIC SPEEDOMETER OR CABLE DRIVEN ONE. THE ODOMETER IS USUALLY PART OF THE SPEEDOMETER SO IF THE CABLE IS BUSTED OR THE ELECTRICAL CURRENT TO IT HAS FAILED? IT WON'T WORK AT ALL. I BELIEVE A 1990 HAS A CABLE DRIVEN ONE SO JUST TRY REPLACEING THAT CABLE FIRST. U CAN GET IT AT ADVANCED OR AUTOZONE OR A DEALER IF U WANNA PAY OUT THE NOSE.....UR CHOICE.

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


This is most likely not a speed sensor problem, I see this a lot on 03-05 Cavalier instrument clusters and it's always the same. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and it can be fixed. Check out this page for more about how to get it fixed - cavalier speedometer fix
