It's an electric gauge, takes a signal from the computer, so as long as the car is still shifting normally, it's probably the gauge itself. If your shift points have gone all haywire, it could be the vehicle speed sensor.

Unfortunately, swapping the gauge panel is not a simple undertaking. It's a full day job.

i have a spare cluster if you need one. i'm not sure what year it was from (or if they are interchangeable) and i dont know the miles on it. you could probably just swap out the single gauge though.
i'm not looking to make much off it, just cover shipping plus a few bucks for packaging. send me a pm and i'll go pull it out of my attic smile
