What would cause a speedometer to bounce and then stop functioning and then work fine the next day?

The cable may need a lubing with graphite or something, if it seizes and snaps you might get this. Should be a quick fix.

Your speed sensor may be going out or the cable may not be firmly attached.

Possibly your speed sensor. My speedometer would bounce around & then soon after it felt like my transmission was slipping. Turns out the speed sensor controls the upshift in your transmission.

I would suspect a faulty VSS. Try replacing the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission.

About the only thing that will cause the wheel to bounce on any car is the strut being bad.

If it's an electronic (analog) speedometer needle, you probably have a problem with the dasboard grounding.
