Maybe your Vehicle Speed Sensor has gone bad. Check on the driver's side of the t-case, there is a thing with wires going out, and the said thing (VSS) is held by one or two 10mm bolts if I remember correctly. remove bolts, the speedo gear should come out with it, if there are missing groves or it's badly worn, replace it. If it's good, then it might be your speedometer guage or wiring. If you need to replace the gear here's a chart I seem to be posting everyday LOL: http://www.quadratec.com/jeep_knowle...article-46.htm

Bootlegger called it. Our 95's have the electronic speedo. If it is acting crazy like that you either have a bad speed sensor or a loose connection somewhere. Check to make sure the plug at the speed sensor did not come loose. All so check for codes. That VSS wont always set one but sometimes it will. It is not a hardcode though so it wont turn the light on.
