After pulling the instrument cluster to change some burned bulbs, my speedometer gauge needle is laying at a pegged out position. All other gauges and lights work. The speedometer appears to be electronically controlled. Did I miss connecting something when I reassembled it?

If no cable for speedo it will be electric, proberbly you need to ensure all plugs are clipped in securely into the cluster.

I found that by carefully reaching into the cluster face with a long skinny tool, I was able to physically move the speedometer dial over to zero. It worked fine when I reinstalled it. I must have forced the dial over to the pegged out position when I was changing cluster bulbs.
