The transmission speed sensor is probably going bad, it's located on the bellhousing, back by the firewall, and has a plug with either 2 or 3 wires. This sensor controls both the transmission shift points and the speedometer, the only gauge the ECM feeds information to is the tachometer. This sensor isn't that hard to replace, but last time I checked the only place that carries them is the dealer. But I don't remember them being that expensive a heck of alot cheaper than an ECM. Good luck and hope this solves your problems, I think it will.

Does your D4 blink and is your cruise control operating. When you start it does it sometimes start real rough and shake a lot? If so it's probably your ICM.

My speedometer doesnt work


Without key in ignition, depress and hold down the trip reset button by the speedometer until a code appears. Release button and the gauge cluster will go through a self diagnosis ( needles will move around and dash lights will blink). When needle returns to zero and lights go off, diagnosis will be completed and speedometer will be reset. Very easy fix.

Why would speedometer needle bounce


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

you may have to take a magnet and put it over the speedometer needle and move the needle back to zero,this some times happens when a battery is connected as the voltage surge causes the needle to bounce some times to far and its not able to return to zero.you may need to have the system checked for proper charging,the voltage could be borderline causing the light to come on.you can try disconnecting the battery as it may reset the light.
