Broekn Speedo - sort of, help!

Ok I noticed that sometimes the speedo on my instrument cluster doesn't move when I accelarate untill about 40kmh and then it resumes normal operation.

It works below 40kmh if you are slowing down, but not if you have come to a complete stop and start moving again.

Is there something totally wrong with my car, or is it like a cable or gear somewhere that is playing up???

mine sometimes does this but with my tacho. I will start the car and it will sit on 0-RPM then i can take off and it wont move till i get to about 30-40kms, then it jumps into position, or I can just tap the dash and it will resume normal operation from idle. Only does it on first start up.

My old XF did this before the speedo died altogether.

A new speedo sender may be in your future...

mine did it, and the needle was pushed to far on, so it had to much resistance to move, when the speed got up enough, it eventually unstuck... or i could tap it.

just an idea.

cheers

steve

I recon you might be right steve. It behaves that way, and doesn't always get stuck.
