As the odometer works you can rule out the speed sensor, the problem is most likely the small DC motor that drives the speedometer needle, so you can have it repaired at a speedometer repair shop or get one from a salvage yard (if you don't mind the mileage discrepancy) or buy a new one. HTH


needs repaired, but before you go and start throwing money at it. do a couple tests. first, has anyone changed the radio? could be plug that was not properly connected. check fuses. also check the plug on the side of the transmission as well as behind the speedo. they have had problems with their dash clusters forever. but check the connections and basics first. everyone thinks its bad when it could be as easy as a loose plug becuase someone had it apart to put a radio in it
