i pulled my gauge cluster out and now my speedometer won’t work. i even connected that needle like thing behind the speedometer and still no luck. any ideas?

you have to disconect the spedo cable on the transmission to pull the gauge cluster. the spedo cable is actually a cable, not electronic. you will have to pull the hairpin on the trans and the cable will release from the trans. this gives you enough slack to pull the gauge and when putting it back together, line up the plug and click it and shove it all back into the dash. sounds like the little square guy inside the cable is not reaching the little square drive in the spedo. take it loose from the trans, and push the trans drive gear as close to the black cable as possible. keep me updated.
