If the speedometer is going on and off, then there is usually a connection that is coming loose. You can check the sensor that runs on top of the transmission and make sure that it is completely plugged properly. If it is barely off, then it can cause both your speedometer and odometer to stop randomly. Also you may try checking behind the dash board and made sure all of the connections are right. It is best to TRIPLE check all of the connections. Hope it helps!!!

No. The tip that goes into the speedometer is broken off. Looks like plastic.

On a 1989, the speedometer signal comes from the sensor in the housing where the passenger side axle shaft goes in the transmission.

Speedometer cables can dry out over time. Remove the cable from the back of the speedometer, and lube the cable with graphite. This should fix the issue.
