Hello, I just changed mine and it was so simple that it blew me away. All the time I was looking for the same answer as you and then I discovered the problem is that the blasted thing doesn't have a speedometer cable. It has what is called a speed sensor and it is a real easy fix. I got mine from AutoZone for the price of $47.99. It is located on the tailshaft of the transaxle on the drivers side of the vehicle. It is held into the transfer case with the traditional single bolt that holds the fork that is common to many speedometer cable installations. It has a plug with two wires that you will have to disconnect. With the fork off and the wire plug disconnected simply pull out the plug that holds the speedo-gear. Once off the vehicle you will see a large nut that you need to remove to separate the sensor from the housing. It will go very smoothly for you so don't be afraid to do it yourself. It took me less than 10 minutes total time spent once I knew what to look for. . Steve

Having the speedometer jump and the engine stall in the 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo could be a problem with the idle and the transmission. The transmission slipping can cause the speedometer to jump.

A 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee does not have a speedometer cable. The speedometer signal comes from a sensor on the transmission or transfer case.
