    My speedometer is doing junping from 30mph to 50mph when i`m driving arround 40mph. When i drive 65mph it`s fine.
    The problem is i can`t use the cruise control when i`m driving 40mph.
    Does anybody know how to solf this problem?

    If your speedo is "jumping" your cable is starting to bind in the sleeve. You can undo it from the dash and oil it (light oil) but probably the inside of the speedo sleeve that the cable runs in is already damaged, you might be better off to replace the cable. Hope that helps you.

    It`s the meter on the middle off your dash where you can read the speed from. I didn`t know how to call in english.
