    Default Speedometer Problem

    Well I thought my problem was the speedo cable.
    Replaced it.
    Problem went away for a couple of drives.

    Now my speedometer is just stuck at 30 mph. Doesn't move at all.

    Is the speedometer head something that I can fix, or is better to send it off?

    Thanks!

    You are probably better off sending the unit off.
    I sent mine off twice...to two different companies.
    It was not long after I got it back the first time that it
    had the same problem again.
    So I tried another company with better results.

    Send it off, or look at an upgrade.

    He's got a stuck needle. I have a bouncy needle. What does a bouncy needle mean? What's the fix?

    I agree. John at RedLine is the "go to" guy for most CAC'ers. I don't know anyone that's ever had a problem with him, his work, or his prices.
