After checking on the site I think the likely culprit is the rear speed sensor.I ran up to the local advanced auto in the hopes they might be able to scan it and see if that was the probelm,but unfortunatley it appears they can only check something if the CEL is on.
I'll take it by a friends shop tomorrow and have him hook his scanner up and make sure my suspicions are right before buying the part.
You guys that contribute here are awesome.I have been able to figured out a lot of small problems by coming on the site and searching for previous posts.
I'm fighting that same battle myself right now. My speedo works, but sticks from time to time. Never sticks at the same speed and occasionally goes back to normal. Took it in to the dealer, they first thought it was a mismatched VIN in the ABS module but it got stuck that very night when I took it home. Took it back to them with the needle stuck at 30 and they couldn't figure it out. They stated they could not replicate the scenario therefore they would not recommend replacement of the instrument cluster until it happens again. It's just out of warranty for this kind of crap(go figure
) and I'm not really keen on paying them half my paycheck to replace the cluster. I am however online right now ordering the new Edge Insight CTS because I want to monitor more things anyway. Good luck to you and let us know what you find out!
