My speedometer needle disappeared the other day, and the odometer stopped reading as well. I figured the speedometer in the cluster was shot, so I picked up a one from the yard. I took the yard one apart when I got home to swap the odometer with the one from my old cluster. I spun the speedometer input on the yard cluster and the needle moved, so I figured good enough for me. The speedometer input on my old cluster was super loose and easy to turn, while the one on the yard speedometer took a small amount of effort to turn. After installing in the truck, the speedometer and the odometer still do not work, but at least I can see the speedometer needle resting at zero now. Is the speedometer cable a part that goes bad often, or is this more likely just a dud speedometer?
