Sound to me like you VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is bad. The sensor is mounted on the transmission. Probably somewhere near the differantial part of the transmission If its a manual transmission its got only one sensor. If its a auto it could have as many as 3 sensors.

I just replaced my speed sensor that goes into the transmission for the very same reason. I do not think it fixed the problem though. The Haynes manual lists a speed sensor under the dash, but I am not sure where. I know that when it does go out, I sometimes hear a clicking noise. I will let you know what I find...

I have the same problem and I hear a clicking noise after shutting the car off. The speedo needle wiggles at zero for about 3 seconds while clicking and then falls dead.

I am getting ready to buy a new gauge cluster to fix this. Am I makeing the right decision?
