Hey Seth==It can be the speed sensor or wiring. It needs ot be checked out. GoodluckJoe

You replace it, that's how. Happened to mine, works just fine now. Make sure you get it done at the dealer. They will put a special sticker in your door jam to show that you have additional mileage on the car.

The speedometer is not working. When the speedometer gets to 65 mph I set the cruise control.

If you are trying to replace a faulty speedometer, there should be a couple of clips on the back of the instrument cluster. All you need to do is push the lever and pull the connector out. It is illegal to disconnect the speedometer in the United States for any reason other than to repair or replace it.

I own a 2001 T&C and have experianced an issue a couple of times with my speedometer where it stopped working. Upon closer inspection, somehow the needle had flipped all of the way around (I think it happened when I was replacing the battery). All it took to fix was physically moving the needle back to the correct side of the rest pin (minor dissassembly of dash required, but not too time consuming).

One of your vacuum lines has come loose or is broken. Check all the lines and repair the broken line or replace it back on the nipple that it came off of.
