Hey guys, I have been noticing my speedometer all of a sudden dropping out randomly over the last week. What I didn't notice until last night is when this happens the odometer stops counting as well. Now and then it will pop back on but,usually not until the car is turned off and back on. Does anyone know why this is happening? Please help I just barely hit 1600 miles! Thanks

Check both ends of the cable, it plugs behind the speedo console and the other end screws into the trans from the top. Sounds like symptoms of a failing speedo cable.
