There are several things that can cause your speedometer to stop working. The most common cause is a blown fuse. The second most common cause is a malfunctioning speedometer cable.

You can try to knock on the dashboard area around the speedometer. Or you could resolder the PCB on the backside of your speedo.

BCM being faulty is the most common cause of this concern

Probably the stepper motors that control the needles. Common failure and can be ordered on eBay and replaced. We have a how to with pics for the procedure on our enthusiasts forum. www.trailvoy.com Yes your Ascender is a relative of ours!

Just about everything, actually.

The most common reason for a speedometer to fail is a broken speedometer cable. Loosen the nuts on each end of the speedometer cable. Remove the speedometer cable retaining clips. Reverse the process to install the new speedometer cable.

The most common reason believe it or not is the seat belt contorl unit in the center console right below the park brake.....People spill coffee on it and other liquids and cause it to fault. This is assuming you have the old style with Auto shoulder belts...

The power or ground connections to the instrument cluster could be bad. Check the fuses, then the wiring to the dash to find a common problem for the heat, gauges and speedometer.

The most common cause for a cruise control that stops working is that the electrical components or switches have stopped working. Sometimes taking it apart and cleaning the contacts will fix the problem.?æ

It's totally fixable. This is pretty common on the 2005 Mustangs, it's caused by failing stepper motors in the instrument cluster, they control the movement of the gauges. There's a guide on how to fix them here - www.2005-mustang-speedometer-problem.com

I have a 2006 Ion - the power steering went out. My dealer said that this was a common problem - Saturn was working on a recall. They took care of replacing the steering column - no charge.

Most common would be speedometer cable has broken Remove speedometer head and move vehicle to see if cable moves- if not probably broken - if it does probably problem with speedometer head

Pluto and Saturn have almost nothing in common save for a few gases. Saturn is twice the size of Pluto, which as of right now, is a current debate on whether or not it is a planet at all.

Changing the tire size or changing the differential gear ratio changes the accuracy of the speedometer. The year, make and model vehicle will affect the answer especially if the speedometer is cable driven or electronic.

standard or automatic? If automatic need to do line pressure test but common cause is the pressure control solenoid

Bad stepper motor in instrument cluster. Very common problem. Search for "speedometer whizard" in Google.

Speed sensor on Trans, or buffer behind dash... OR, any broken wires in this circuit. Very common problem on this and many other vehicles.

What is the gasses of Saturn? Mainly hydrogen, with helium the next most common gas.

Check VSS(vehicle speed sensor)on tranny,the most common problem of speedometer errs,providing your vehicle is equipped with a speedometer cable.Also,VSS,will cause erratic speedometer reads. - Big Daddy

Could be the speed sensor or another common problem with neons is broken solder points on the instrument cluster circuit board. To test it, see if your cruise control can keep you at speed. If so, it's the instrument cluster. If not could be the speed sensor. If you don't have cruise, then you may have to inspect the cluster for broken solder points.

No, because life is not possible on Saturn, so how could a volcano be there. Common Sense

Depending on what you mean by "repair", the common issue for a speedo not working in an 80s Monte, is due to a bad cable, which would just need replacing. Your question needs a little more detail.
