Sounds more like a Speed sensor or a Cluster issue to me. If your odometer would be out as well, it might be different. Does your transmission shift normal? Anything else going on with your Kia?

Sorry for delay Mate, Well transmission shifting is normal, the LED odometer reads but shows the same figures as it requires movement of the speedometer. All else is okay with my Kia Spectra 2004.. and thank God for that. I did have a look at the speed sensor mentioned and it is high on the suspect list. I believe you are right here. Thanks.

I have the same problem. Where exactly is the speed sensor located. My Chilton manual does not even mention the speedometer.

Gregory Peris, just like previously mentioned, it sounds more like a Speed sensor or a Cluster issue to me. If your odometer would be out as well, it might be different. To remove the speed sensor disconnect the coupler, remove the holding bolt and twist the sensor out. straight forward job.

Do all the other gauges work? If so then the speedometer cable is probably broken.

There is no speedometer cable on this Kia car model, it works electronically via a electrical cable through a speed sensor. Thanks for your kind intentions, Michael ..really appreciate it.

sorry forgot to say , All other gauges are functioning normal, so not able to say if it is a faulty cluster.

I'm having the exact same problem, and have also replaced the speed sensor, but no change. Next thing I'm going to replace is the wiring. Any ideas on how to get a hold of the wiring schematics? Mine is a 06' kia spectra
