Question about Cars & Trucks
After removing the dead battery and putting in new one, my speedometer pegged out--it got stuck on far right side, past the last number. [NOTE: the new battery had to be charged up (after installed in car), as it had sat in my trunk for 3 yrs. It had never been used. We slow-charged it for about 20 hrs.] I tried the tip of holding trip mileage meter (odometer?) in for 10 seconds before turning ignition, and this did not "unstick" my speedometer. Also tried banging on dash, to no avail. Is there anything else I can try, before taking car in to repairman? Many thanks!

make sure your battery connections are clean .. take the cables off the battery and clean them well. also trace the ground to see where it goes and see if it is tight ... If a battery tester or load tester is available test that battery while you are at it .. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more ..

OdometerGears.com has the replacement gears for you to repair your odometer. You need a E20= 20 tooth gear and a 16 tooth medium pod. The price is $54.00 for both including shipping.

there is a steel braided cable located at the back of your speedo panel that connects it to the tranny, this cable rotates from the point it connects to the tranny and transmits it to your panel. this cable may have snapped. pull out the panel, take out the cable and replace.
