Everything work fine except I can't tell how fast i am driving because the speedometer meter is dead.
The failure is then going to be in the speedometer stepper motor itself then. The stepper motor is what moves the gauge needle. There are companies that can fix your gauge cluster for around $125, click here. Or you can attempt this repair yourself. Replacement stepper motors are around $10 each on ebay. For a writeup on how to do this repair, click here.
If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
