The speedometer is just one component of many that makeup the instrument cluster. It's not surprizing that just one it's components failed. The speedometers in your year of Jimmy is electric it's triggered by the v.s.s. (vehicle speed sensor) it is located on the tailshaft of the transmission or transfercase if you have 4x4. This may be bad. If this is the case your check engine light should be coming on while your driving, also your cruise control shouldn't work. If your cruise is working and there is no check/service engine light on the vss is most likely good leaving you with either a wiring problem somewhere before the speedo or the speedo it's self. You didn't state whether you had the analog or digital cluster. If you have the digital cluster that's most likely the source of your headache. They are known to be tempermental and expensive to replace. Oh, and no the two clusters do not interchange without major rewiring.

Did Jimmy Barnes make up the song Working Class Man?

Though Working class man was Jimmy Barnes signature song, johnathon Cain was the writer of the song. the reason jimmy is able to use the song without paying royalties to johnathon Cain is because they are both signed to the same record labels and the record label gave jimmy the permission to use the song without having to pay royalties. Every time shannon noll sings working class man the royalties go to gremlin records not to jimmy or johnathon
