My speedometer isn't working on Jeep Grand Cherokee, the hands aren't spinning and is beneath the rubber peg

Disconnect the posative terminal then touch the terminal to the posative a few times quickly it will reset your odometer needle to above the resting pin. This happens because you moved your posative terminal and the needles spun around and sat on the wrong side of the pin.

2001 Dodge grand caravan speedometer needle got on wrong side of stop. what are my options and how did this happen?

Remove instrument cluster and drill a small inconspicuous hole from bottom or top which ever is easier to hide from view, insert a coat hanger and lift needle over the peg. RTV the hole shut. Probably happened when battery was removed, disconnected, or jumper cables were connected to it. Fairly common problem. Instrument cluster may be going bad and over reaching the needle during start up.

Battery changed on 2002 toyota camry, speedometer pegged at 140

Try disconnecting the battery again, only the + side. Wait for 3-5 min before hooking back up. Turn the switch on but not over, then start the car after a few seconds.

How do i get the needle to go back around to the top side of the peg on the fuel guage of my 1997 chevy malibu

Don't disassemble the dash! It will take hours and will rattle from now on. Use a very small gauage of wire, inserted in the odometer reset botton hole, to move the needle back around. It takes a minute or 2. This guage problem usually happpens when the battery is disconnected.

The speedometer no longer functions

This is an easy fix. Turn the key off. Press and hold the trip odometer reset button. Hold it until you see the odometer light up and it will say "soF" and a number. When you see this then let the trip odometer button go. The cluster will enter into a self test where all the lights come on and all of the gauges sweep. When the self test is complete then your speedometer will be back on the correct side of the peg and will work again.

Changed alternator, now fuel gage needle is stuck

this happened because an electriacl surge. two ways to fix this.
1. remove the instrument cluster, then remove the clear lense, once the lense is removed you can use you finger to gently rotate the needles back into proper position. this sometimes works, if not
2. you'll need to send the instrument cluster in your local General Motors dealership and have them get a "advance exchange" instrument cluster. this is very expensive and you won't be able to drive the car until the cluster is back in the car.
I hope this helps.

68 camaro aftermarket fuel gauge pegged passed full

Jess, Make sure you don't have the ground and sender level circuits crossed at the gauge. If the needle is pegs to full it indicates an open circuit, if the needle pegs to empty it is indicating a short to ground.
Let me know.

Speedo is pegged at 120 won't move?

some times the needle will jump when key is turned on or the cluster is defective, try to use a strong pen sized magnet to pull the needle back to 0 or remove the cluster and turn it over to see if the needle will fall back to 0, you could remove the lens and move it to 0 with your finger. if all that dont work i would test the cluster and repair it or replace it
