The speedo is electronic, so if it is stuck at 0 then there is something wrong in the gauge cluster. If everything besides the speedo works fine then you may be able to open it up and look for anything obstrusting it but that is only if you feel comfortable "cracking" open your cluster. There are no cables running into it though just a plug of wires.
u need to install the cluster, But, You will have to get an Installation kit if you want the Tach to work. Everything else will hook up the Same. You have a Distribution Box (Fuse Box) Under the Hood on the Drivers Side, There is a Fuse in it for the Speedo. Inside the Cover to the Box is the Fuse Diagram or in the Back of the Owners Manual.
As long as the Guage Cluster that you are Putting in in Place of the Old one is the Same Year model or Close you should be able to Just Plug it up.
Before you install the NEW Cluster, Make sure to replace the Light Bulbs on the Back of the Cluster so that you do not have to Rip it apart Again!
You need to replace the Speedometer Cable. Not an Easy job But, Unfortunately Neccessary at this Point! Just follow the Cable through the Dash and Firewall to the Other End

hope this will work for u
do let me kno
all the best
regards

I have a 1999 dodge ceruis. I quit running going down the highway at 70 mph. It was very low of oil. Do the have a ciser shut down system


You are fortunate that the engine still cranks. If it overheated when it shut down it is possible that some of the electrical components may have been burned out.

And if you did permanent damage it is possible that now the engine is not cranking fast enough to start.

Good luck.

sounds like the coil spring for the speedometer needle is bad. you can replace it or buy a new instrument cluster. Look at local salvage yards for cheaper price.

How to fix a speedometer cable


Well you know it does not have a speedo cable since you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission.
My guess would be a problem with the speedo or cluster.

I looked down and the speedometer in my 05 Trailblazer said I was going 120 mph. When I stopped and put the car into park, the speedometer stuck at 70 mph. I need a simple, cost effective solution. Please...


This is a very common problem with Trailblazers and is caused by a fault speedometer stepper motor - the actual motor that makes your needle move around is wearing out.

You have two solutions, if your Trailblazer has 70k miles or less you can take it to your local Chevy dealer and they will replace it for you as part of a recall.

If you have over 70k miles visit my Trailblazer speedometer page here: http://drspeedometer.com/services-i-offer/trailblazer-speedometer-repair

I specialize in the repair of these units and offer free shipping and a great guarantee on my work.

Speedometer not working on 2002 dodge ram 1500


Removed cluster from dashboard and unplugged & turned the whole cluster clockwise very slowly and needle started moving from 150 mph back down to 0 mph when rotation was completely done. Kept cluster upright while re-installing and plugged back in the plugs on back and everything was fine. Called local Dodge dealer and told me would take 30-45 minutes to reset and would cost approximately $70 to fix. Took about 8-10 minutes of my time and saved myself $70. This may not work for everyone but this was my amazing quick fix thanks to GOD for giving me this thought to try this.
