Are you sure the failure is in the display?
Couldn't it also be failing in the gas tank, or in the "Speed Sensor"
Or even a fuse.
Just a thought.

No fuse just for the speedometer , fuse for whole instrument cluster . No reset either , hooking up a factory scan tool to check for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes in the instrument cluster or BCM - body control module .

The speedometer on my 2004 Pontiac Montana quit working. Is there a fuse for that?

Nope. The speedometer needs a signal from the vehicle speed sensor to operate. Is the check engine light on? If so, scan for any codes that may indicate a VSS problem. If no codes, possible internal cluster issue with the speedometer head

The first thing to do is reach up (if possible) behind the cluster and make sure the plugs to it are fully inserted, push them in or remove and reinsert if possible to reach them. If that doesn't fix the problem the entire cluster must be removed and then sent out for repair to a shop that repair Chrysler electronics.

There's 9 screws in the plastic piece that surrounds the instrument cluster and the lower knee guard, remove those screws and pull the plastic trim away from the dash, disconnect the switches on the left side as you pull outward. Then there's 4 screws that hold the actual instrument cluster in place, remove those and pull the cluster out, unplug the grey plug in the back of the instrument cluster and your done. You may need to set your parking brake and put your transmission in 1st gear of you have a column shifter model.

The speedometer reads over 120 all the time.

Check for a recall on the instrument cluster.

Speedometer just stopped workin its like 180 is actually o km/h and then it wont go down past 180

Hi. There is a speed sensor mounted on the transmission. Check the wires that lead from the sensor to the instrument cluster in your dash. Make sure the speedometer is connected to the sensor, and the connection is not loose. If the wiring at the sensor, and speedometer are ok, simply replace the speed sensor.

The dash smoked and now none of the gauges work. I was told there was a battery in it that could not be replaced, and I would have to replace the whole cluster. Is this correct? What are my options on...

Never heard of a battery inside an instrument cluster. Modern clusters do have various capacitors and other electrical components and can be complex to repair when they fail.

There are numerous cluster repair places across the country that do this type repair work. Google "speedometer repairs." You will have to remove the cluster and ship it to them.
