I think the problem lies in the speed senor mounted on the gearbox.
when it rains,water gets in the connection and shortens the sensor thus causing the problem with the speedo and when the car's stationary the sensor dries due to the heat and runs again.
please check the speed sensor/connections and keep them dry and without viberations.
hope this solves your problem.

1992 Subaru legacy wagon will not shift up from first gear. it is an AT.


run the fault but all you describe is operated from the VSS sensor ( vehicle speed sensor)
it tells the cruise control the vehicle speed , tells the TCM the vehicle speed so that ratios can be changed, activates the speedo,and will report with a check engine light to report a transmission problem
run the fault codes first

My parking lights won't go off.


I hadn't had the car that long. Didn't know about the switch on steering column that makes park lights stay on. while I was cleaning it, I must have hit it. Anyway, problem solved, Thanks for your help.
