Check the plug on the speed sensor. It'* on the diff cover on the passenger side.

is it an easy operation to remove the cover and check for the plug? Just pop off the passenger molding on that side. Ans the speed sensor should be plugged in.

Come to find out the mechanic that came to my house the mobile kind took my 40 dollars to go get a part and never returned..i in turn called the cops on him. Also he disconnected my speed sensor while he was under the car... The second mechanic that came out fixed that for me and much more for 70 bucks...good deal and an honest mechanic.

So thats why he wanted to replace the gauge, so he could take about $300 from you to go buy the cluster and mysteriously never return
