The speedometer works, then will drop to 20MPH and flutter. If the car is shut off, it might drop to zero, then work for a little bit, but always drops to 20 MPH and flutters. If I start the car and it is stuck at 20 MPH, I can disconnect the VSS and the speedometer will stay at 20. Is this a VSS issue or a gage cluster issue?

-Inspect and test the VSS, if okay time to open up the cluster and investigate-

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) (A/T & M/T) On top left front of transaxle.
Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) (CVT) On top of transaxle
