Any body ever have this happen to them before if so what was your fix?

I was going about 45 mph and then the needle got reall jittery and then just dropped down to 0 where it stayed the remainder of the trip home.

Good News odometer doesn't work!:D

Open for suggetions. I am in the middle of searching for answers right now through the search function and looking at my manual on cd. Just looking for the quickest answer.

Thanks guys!

Did you try checking the speedo cable?
I am in the middle of searching and I was going to check that out.
Basicly what Hans is saying take out my gauge cluster look to see if the white needle is spinning if it is then I need a new gauge cluster. Not a problem!

If it is not spinning then I will need a new cable. FUCK!!!!!!!
*at the top of his lungs*

How do I even begin to change this out. If the dash has to come off then new gauges all around are goin in. There is one upside to it.
I had a similar problem with my '93 3kGT. I changed the cable and still have the problem. It was the "spinning cylinder". I don't know if this is the correct name for it. But it's the cylinder that makes the cable spin. By the way it's plasctic and that's the reason it wears easily. I think it cost me around $30.00. Not hard to install. Take Intake out. Disconnect the cable (one screw). Twist the "cylinder mechanism" until you get it out. There is a "pin" that holds the cylinder. You can use a small nail to take it out. Replace the cylinder put it back. That's it.

Good luck.
At least you can't speed!

I’m I the only one that has an electric Speedo?

I thought that all of the 3000/GTO had as electric Speedo not cable?

Or is this only a GTO thing?

91-93 non-turbos had a speedo cable. I know all the TT models came with an electronic speedo.
Thanks man :)

That’s something I didn't know
