Common problem with these instrument clusters. We repair these and many other instrument clusters at a very reasonable price. Visit http://www.mrwhizard.com for more information.

Could be a variety of reasons for this. We have seen Vehicle speed sensors and or gear, speedometer head or even a unified meter control cause this kind of issue. Most common is a Vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Need to check for codes in computer. If it has a P0500 most of the time that turns out to be something with the VSS. If not would need to run some tests to track down problem.
