First check the fuse - your driver's manual will tell you which one. Most likely, a blown fuse is the cause of the problem

Speedometer not working

This may be the issue:

Both the speedometer and tachometer have a mechanical stop for the needles. The stop is located behind the display board.

The stop and needle contact point tend to develop a sticky residue which mechanically prevents the needle from rising above zero. At the behavior would indicate, the needles independently of one another, tend to stick at zero, yet intermittently, while driving will resume normal reading.

Disassembling the instrument cluster and carefully cleaning the stop and needle contact point with some solvent on a bent cotton swab or pipe cleaner should solve the problem. Just be careful not to break any of the delicate parts.

This problem and solution were first posted by users on the ClubLexus forums, but the brief discussion is difficult to locate.
If able, I will post a photo or short video of the problem and solution.

Speedometer needle no longer gauges...

does it now rest at zero with car stopped? if it doesn't then probably the little spring called the clock spring is broken. on most cars it's pretty involved to fix this, you will have to take the dash apart to get to it. hope that helps

Hi...the needle assembly at the speedometer is faulty. Because your dash instrument is all electronics with no cables or moving parts attached, your whole instrument needs to be placed....hope this helps.

It's a common fault with the cables.

If you can take it apart when you remove it, Then use petrol to clean it, let it dry, then use a thin oil like 3 in 1 and re-assemble.

If this still produces the same effect - Replace the whole thing - it won't get better.

(I restore Land Rovers - this is a common fault)
