This answer was rated:

parked C5 diesel estate GN52 NWD in drive after use. First thing this morning drove out and the speedometer needle stayed at the bottom of the meter and did not move. The rest of the meters indicated normally. What is the problem please.
Problem is the speed sensor is shorted out and needs to be replaced. It gives the signal for the speedometer . This is what needs to be checked next .Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
