Hi,
The reason for the speedometer not working should be the cable connecting the dashboard and the transmission.This could be caused by a problem on the speedometer cable. This cable is connected at the back of your dashboard to the transmission. Check out if the cable broke or has disconnected from the back of the dashboard. Thank you for contacting www.Fixya.com

Driving down the road my speedometer stopped working then it stop shifting out of second gear the following day


run the fault codes and check for VSS problem ( vehicle speed sensor)
this sensor works the speedo and makes for correct ratio selection in the transmission

My speedometer stopped working


If the speedo and odometer are both dead, you should have shifting problems and a check engine light. The speed sensor in the transmission has probably died.
If the speedo does not work but the odometer does, chances are the problem is in the speedometer head.

Was driving down the road and the tac started jumping then dropped to zero then the speedometer dropped aswell got freaked and parked it but neither gauge is working at the moment and i am not sure whats...


The two gauges work off two different sensors. The tac runs off the crank sensor. the speedometer runs off the speed sensor. Since your car still runs..ie the crank sensor is still good. I would guess that your Instrument panel has shorted. This is just a guess because there are other factors, like wiring that would have to be checked. It is still safe to drive, just watch how fast you are going compared to traffic.

Speedometer bounces while driving


your spedo cable is probably just loose which can be fixed by tightening or replaceing. Might as well go ahead and replace it since its a 14 year old truck and its the more sure fire way to fix the bounce.

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.
