Speedometer has a mind of its own. Also the gas gauge no longer works. This problem has been ongoing off and on now for the last 35000 miles. Makes interesting pictures when the cars gauge says you are going 140 with the car off.
yes my speedometer and other instrument panel gauges work some time other time they work erratically and some times they dont work at all. I was told its the stepping motor that messes up causing my temp guage to read hot pegging hot if you shut of the car and flip the ignition on and off with out turning the engine over real fast it starts to lower the reading of the temp gauge.
