Re: 04 P71 Wont start Speedo jumps around!
Yeah... that's what I thought too. I placed a meter across the terminals and was reading 13+ volts, but the shorted cell wasn't allowing voltage to flow through the battery correctly. My speedo would spin, I heard clicking from under the dash, a chime would go off, etc. I replaced the battery cables and still had the same problem. Then I finally swapped out the battery (which was all that was left), and voila! She started right up.
