Hello, the shifter wont move properly or you are having an issue with a specific gear range with the transmission? The speedometer stops working when it reaches a certain speed?

Hello, do you need more help with this concern?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm assuming that you mean the transmission is not upshifting while driving. This is most likely due to a speed sensor issue if the problem started at the same time the speedometer started to act up.

Have you checked for fault codes?
