IF...the auto transmission is shifting properly...I suspect the Speedo Cluster is bad. Have you checked the computers on this vehicle for stored codes? Some auto parts store will check for Codes for Free?

I drove my car for a few hours with no problems. The speedometer is on 0,looked up the part on the Internet, there is a small plastic gear at the end of the shaft that fits in the speed sensor, that is probably worn out, so beware of cheap quality replacement parts. If the gear is made of cheap material it will wear out fast.

I agree...the above could be the cause of this issue. However....this failure usually sets a code in the Computer and turns on a warning light on the Dash/Cluster. Does this vehicle have an Automatic Transmission?

Yes it does.

Ok....and the Transmission is shifting properly when you drive down the road?

Yes

Another picture. I hope this one is ok to use

35s9...did you ever resolve the issue with this vehicle?

Changed the speed sensor located below the air filter, it wasn't the problem,am going to replace the one further back on the transmission, it can be reached from the bottom and depending on the source can cost and arm and a leg

Some auto parts stores will check your computer for stored codes. Suggest you price out that second speed sensor...and...ask if they will do a Scan for free.

Got a used speed sensor and installed it.had to use the old gear shaft due to different length. It now works fine, so far.
