Probably bad speedo sensor on the transmission or a short in the wire. If you can locate the sensor unplug and plug back in. Sometimes it's just loose. But if still does it replace. If manual trans then the only thing plugged into trans so easy to spot.

No it would not be the speed sensor, you would have other problems. I suggest you just have a tech that is failing.

My eletric speedometer doesmt work in my buik limited regal


Pretty much all car speedometers built since the mid 1980's are electric. Do you mean that your vehicle is equipped with a DIGITAL speedometer?

If so, when you say it doesn't work, do you mean it does not light up at all? or do you mean that it lights up and just says "0" all the time?
