2005 kia spectra ex speedometer wigs out when hot

Asked by Jun 21, 2014 at 02:54 PM about the 2005 Kia Spectra EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Usually the only fix for a bad speedo is to change it out. If you haven't tried a reflective windshield sun blocker, I would try that as a cheap fix. If the speedo problem becomes more prevalent, you may experience shifting problems if it's an automatic.
