How to reset speedometer on a Chevy cavalier after a jumpstart

I really don't understand your question. There is no need to "reset" a speedometer after a jump start. If there is something wrong with the speedometer, it is not going to be related to the jump start, unless you may have done something like reverse the polarity and caused an electrical short/surge.

How to reset your speedometer & tach on a 2005 Pontiac Montana.

If your 2005 Pontiac Montana's speedometer and tachometer does reset back to zero after you shut it off, put you ignition switch on and off until it resets. You might have to do this again after a few trips until it is permanently reset. The speedometer & tach will act up sometimes when your battery was run down or disconnected and has not been used for awhile.

The radio & clock display do not work, but if I turn the headlights on they do.

Start the truck so you don't run down the battery, turn the headlights on and see if you can't go into the radio's settings and see if you can find something like daytime/nighttime brightness? If that fails you can try doing a battery drain reset by disconnecting the negative terminal on your battery overnight or you could connect both terminals and short the positive terminals together for about thirty minutes and that should drain any residual power that the capacitors are holding as that is what will happen with the overnight method the shorting of the cables will just do it faster and reset all electronic systems in your truck to default. Don't let the cables touch the battery terminals if you try the shorting them together method (especially the positive one). Either method will reset everything so you'll have to reset your stations and any other preferences you may have set in your truck.
Good luck and let us know how it goes?

My alternator went bad and blowed the fusible link at the battery the speedometer went around clockwise and resting on the underside of the stop pins want return back to zero with switch off. is there a...

Don't think so. Sounds like the battery shorted out, which may have also shorted out your dash/speedo. At this point you can either look into a replacement speedo, or drill a small hole where you may be able to flip your needle back around to proper location, but this will only work if the needle is binding. If will not fix a burned out circuit board

I just had the trans on my 1998 caravan fixed. 4 days later my did not turn on I turned the key and just clicks. The speedometer light states trip odometer.. reset. what does that mean?

It sounds like you have a dead battery.
The trip odometer thing is simply your information center asking you if you want to reset your trip odometer. If you did not initiate this by pressing the information/reset button, then the low battery condition could have caused the information center to "default" to this part of the menu. (Computers tend to get delirious when they are suffering from malnutrition.)

Battery light coming on intermitantly, Van up and died won't star

The alternator has failed if the the alt is good typically the vehicle will stay running even if the battery is bad. Have the electrical system tested because a bad battery can cause the alternator to fail.

Speedometer and odometer stopped working

This sounds like it could possibly be a short under the dash. I would check all the wiring harnesses under the dash. Have you reset the main computer to see if this will solve a code issue? I was told that the computer can cause communication problems. You remove the neutral cable from the battery first then the hot side. Leave off for a few minutes and then replace the battery cables. Good luck, I have done a lot to my own ranger as well.

Moved + bat terminal, now dashboard dials don't work

For safety purposes always always remove the negative side first. This eliminates the possibility of shorting out your wrench against the body or any other negative charged part. There is strong possibility of shorting out the battery which could blow up. This happened to my brother as a kid and he ended up with battery acid in his eyes.
Try unhooking the negative side of the battery as this may reset any relays.
