I have a 2005 Hyundai Elantra with speedometer issues. It doesn't work. If the headlights are off, it bounces all around in a general area of what my speed is. If the headlights are on, it doesn't move at all. That means that my cruise control doesn't work and my mileage is off and my gas gauge isn't right. Plus the whole speeding thing.
We bought a warranty (I know) when we bought the car so last fall I took it in to be looked at. The dealer replaced the speed sensor and that didn't fix the problem so they said it needed a new instrument cluster and was told it was a basic maintenance issue so the warranty didn't cover it. But the dealer would replace it for $700. We declined and last weekend my husband put a new(one we already had) stereo in my car. He had to take off the whole dash so we thought that was a good time to put in a new instrument cluster. We ordered a used on off Ebay and it came yesterday.
The new one does the same thing with the speedometer. Not only that but the odometer on my car is now different and we can't take the new one out to put the old one back in because the plugs in the back won't come out. The blickers work on the car but they don't show up on the cluster.
have the same problem?
