On the way home from a movie last night, I got a flat tire on the rear driver's side. After shutting the car off, applying the parking brake and changing the tire, upon restarting the car, the speedometer was no longer working. I don't have a clue what the problem is. Any ideas?

My speedometer works sporatically. Ususaaly when I first start driving it OK, and then it drops to 0. The needle may bounce up and down, but the speedometer doesn't work after the initial start in the day. Sometimesimes, it doen't work at all. I was told the "FIX" was to clean the sensors on the wheels, and if that dodn't work, the garage was going to connect the car to the "computer" to go through and eliminate any problems, one by one, the car may have until it leads them to the actual problem.
