Hi, your speedometer drive motor is wearing out, very common on these trucks. Your instrument cluster needs to be rebuilt to fix the problem.

My 1995 c280 Mercedes-Benz can not run beyond 120 speedometer, once I try to go beyond 120 speedometer it will start cutting fire pls can anyone help me


Cars produced in Germany are electronically speed limited to about 150 mph. This is embedded in the software. If there are no other problems with the engine, fuel or transmission it is possible the management system has been remapped and the speed limiter has been reset to 120 mph.

Speedometer is not working-- last night on the highway it keep increasing in speed until it went all the way to 120. when you start the truck it will decrease and if you continue turning on and off it...


If this is a mechanical speedometer, the return spring that pulls the needle to zero may be broken--fix is to replace the speedometer as they are sealed like a can. Check the wrecking yards for a used replacement. Hope this helps!

2001 chrysler voyager speedometer needle stuck on bottom side of stop pin.


I have had this problem

put key in ignition (do not turn on) and press the trip button for about 30 seconds.

This should reset your speedometer

If one hits the trip button with the engine off it goes into a diagnostic mode and the speedometer pegs out. This basically lets it finish the diagnostics.

Dealer will charge you $800 for a 3 minute job.

I used this solution from Edmunds forums but cannot find the links anymore.

I have had two others reset theirs for the same problem.

Both speedometer & tachometer not working, both reading wrong.


There was a recent class action law suit settled with GM for this exact problem. You can google gm speedometer lawsuit and get lots of information. Unforutunately for most people I think the warranty was limited to 7 years and 70,000 miles. Which isn't a lot of miles for most people.

If you car isn't covered by the warranty there is a way to "reset" the speedometer.

You can turn the ignition slowly like you are going to start the engine. There is a very small "dead" space where you will see your guage lights go off.

What you want to do is cycle the ignition switch from off to that dead space. Each time you do it your stuck speedometer will move towards zero about 10 mph. So if its stuck on 40 you will have to cycle it at least 4 times.

At first you will probably actually hit the ignition and the engine will try to start.....just release it and try it again.

I know this because I have a 04 avalanche with 80,0000 miles and it has this problem about twice a month.
