Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Contaminated speedometer sensor.
2. Corroded, broken or loose connector pins/sockets in the wire harness between the speedometer and the sensor.

More than likely the tiny electric motor that moves the speedo needle has failed, very common issue on GM cars and trucks.

Why is the speedometer reading erratically?


Depending on the type an year vehicle an the electronics on the car , the instrument cluster could be at fault ! The stepper motor that moves the speedo could be the problem if a GM product ! As far as the speed sensor goes a few other things wouldn't work very well if it were bad an the check engine light would be on more then likely because this is an input to the PCM - engine computer ! The transmission would shift erratically !
Speedometer
The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the vehicle speed signal from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses/mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 km/h (0 mph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed signal circuit exists.
So I would say the instrument cluster is bad !

Speedometer needle doesn't move


I assume you don't have any other problems except this, if that is the case the speedo needle drive motor is defective more than likely, pull the cluster out and send it to an authorized GM instrument cluster repair center. Check the internet for ones to contact.

Speedometer not showing correct speed


Try this. Turn the key on, do not start the vehicle. Absence the needle on the speedo. It should move down and then back up. Before it moves back up turn off the key. Repeat this until the needle is at zero. Then start the vehicle. If the needle goes back to a spot other than zero, you may have to take it for a quick drive, than the speedo head is likely bad. This is a pretty common an known issue for gm's. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Speedo needle doesn't move, petrol gauge moves up and down, low fuel light comes on and off, rev needle and temp work. Rear fog lights light comes on dash when evan side lights switched on


Probably a break inside wiring loom of one/more of the three wires that eventually connect to the speed sensor on top of gearbox. The break I fixed in my 2003 Leon 1.6SX was in the loom under battery tray. My symptoms were no speedo working, and erratic fuel guage (particulary when under 1/2 full). I repaired one broken wire.

2008 Honda CBR 125 Speedo Dial Trapped


Now this one is only a guess at the solution. . . . . Have you removed the speedo and turned it upside down yet? Perhaps there is enough clearance between the needle and the plastic lens that you could shake the needle to the correct side of the pin. Speedos are not my strength but what the heck, it may be worth a try.

Speedo problem


Your spedo needle could be bent.

I noticed that many of the dial needles are bent from the heat.

Because the plastic face of the instruments is angled back when it reaches towards the 100km mark the needle touches the plastic and cant go any further.

I used a bent paperclip and a stick and put the paper clip though the tripmeter hole and used it to push the needle back. Its best to do this in summer when the interior gets more hotter and it will slightly bend the spedo needle back.

Toyota has a needle kit to replace them

Good luck,
Eitan.
