My speedometer is not accurate. It doesn't move off of zero until I'm going about 25 mph. I have already replaced the speed sensor behind the transmission and that didn't change anything.

Do you
have the same problem?

With ignition off, press and hold trip odometer RESET button while turning ignition on. Continue to hold RESET button until odometer window displays CHEC (about 10 seconds). Release RESET button. If problem exists, system will display Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC).

If no DTCs appear, cluster will start a walking segment test. First, all segments will be illuminated, then each segment in sequence. If any segment does not illuminate, repeat test to confirm and replace instrument cluster. When walking segment test is complete, bulb check will start.
If any bulb does not light, remove instrument cluster and check bulb and bulb holder.
Ensure bulb holder is properly installed in cluster. If bulb and bulb holder are okay, replace instrument cluster. If LED does not light, replace instrument cluster. When bulb check is complete, gauge actuator test will start.
Each gauge needle should stop at 3 calibration points, then return to relaxed position. If any gauge does not perform as specified, remove instrument cluster.
Inspect all connections between printed circuit board and gauge terminals, repair as necessary. If connections are okay, replace instrument cluster. Instrument cluster will automatically exit self-diagnostics when test is complete.
