    Well the speedometer doesnt want to work in my k5 so I'm guessing the speedo cable either got stretched or is just malfunctioning... any way to check and make sure? I know in my ranger i just replaced the cable and it worked fine, but I never got around to calibrating it correctly

    <font color="green"> Yank the cable out, pull the core and clean it and the housing real good. If they look to be in good shape then throw them back in and see what happens. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif </font>
