confused In cold weather speedo reports double!

I'm driving down my back alley and the speedometer tells me I'm going 60 kmph I'm driving down a local throughfare going the speed of traffic (usually around 75kmph) and the speedometer is registering 140kmph!

This usually happens for the first fifteen minutes of driving in cold weather. Anyone know whats causing this?

Re: In cold weather speedo reports double!

This is a known problem with the tempo/topaz line. I have not seen any fix for this.
