I think you could use this manual method instead.. My nephew use it to repair my car and it's totally repaired now. Here's the website he bought it from. www.reliable-store.com

repair instructions including removal,
etc. a lot more
this may seem wild , but it sounds as if the instrument panel is not properly seated in the connector . pulling the panel is not difficult 4 screws in the dash panel and 4 screws in the instrument panel and pull straight out . clean the contacts completely with electrical contact cleaner and push the panel back in place . put all screws in tightly
Underneath the speedometer head is a knurled nut.It SHOULD unscrew by hand, but after 24 years, you may need a pair of pliers.At the other end of the cable is a nut, unscrew with a wrench. When installing new cable, start at lower end. You'll probably need to turn inner cable by hand to line up end of cable with receptacle in drive unit, then tighten nut.
At top end, install into speedo head unit, and tighten knurled nut.
You might want to grease cable before installation. Inner cable should pull out of outer sheath housing from the top. Grease all of inner cable EXCEPT for top (where it goes into speedo head) 6", so grease doesn't get into speedo head and gum up the works!
A universal kit will work for your application. Most of the time the center cable is what is damaged.
1. Remove speedometer cable from transmission 2. Remove speedo gear retainer and remove speedo gear. 3. Pull out cable from sheath - If broken you will only get part of it 4. Remove instrument panel and pull out section of cable still trapped in cable sheath if applicable.
For re install follow directions on package.
1. Cable appears un-damaged: Check to make sure the speedo gear is not damaged where the cable enters it. Then also check the back of the speedo head cable hole for damage. 2. You can measure you two broken pieces to arrive at an appropriate length for ordering purposes. 3. Make sure this is well lubricated on install otherwise the speedo can jump up and down or damage the new cable.
I am no expert on this but have the same problem. Here is where I am at. I bought the truck used, needed a new PCM which after installing one from a gas job and verifying that wiring was good, bought a reman from Chrysler. Speedo still did not work even though it did with the gas PCM but was fluctuating allover. Chrysler replaced PCM and speedo started to work intermittantly. Took truck into dealer and $600. later told mechanic thought it was faulty PCM. He called Chrysler and asked them to pull one from the shelf and test. They said needed a new crankshaft speed sensor.Mechanic took truck on the road, shifted into nuetral then turned ignition back on, speedo works. Replaced crankshaft speed sensor and situation didn't change. Total spent $1000. and no speedo and no overdrive. Speedo started working intermittantly, seemed like depending on transmission temperature. Friend that works on dodge said is instrument cluster. tried another cluster still the same. Replaced ignition switch, thinking that may be the problem. Still the same. Bought a new Neutral starting switch, which I have not replaced as of yet. If I place truck in neutral and start the truck speedometer is activated right away but does not stay. So right now am down to two scenarios. The neutral starting switch or,...... the temp sensor in the oil line. Feeling is it is the neutral starting switch. By the way had already replaced speed sensor in tranny and rear end. Going to replace neutral starting switch, cost is $25. for the part and see what happens. Please keep us posted, as others are having the same problem.
I just had the same problem 2004 gsxr 750. After massive troubleshooting and time I found out it was the gauge. So I then ebayed a gauge on ebay and bought on for 290 dollars. Speedo now works. I am just off on the actual speed, need to by a speedo healer.
The cable will attatch to the back of the speedo, and attatch at the front wheel. You should have a speedo spacer installed on the left side of the rim ( between the tire and the front left fork leg ) . It screws into the spacer. then there is a little locking set screw to hold the cable from unscrewing itself.
