Re: [Chrysler300] Jumping Speedo Needle

    Most likely the speedometer cable needs to be lubricated...use transmission fluid...a little pearl that I gleaned from Jeff Carter because it doesn’t firm hard pearls that bind the cable like white lithium grease.  Also jack up the rear of the car by the rear axle banjo so the wheels are a few inches clear of the floor if the lube job doesn’t totally satisfy the flutter issue and with front wheels chocked run the car in drive and reach under the dash where the speedometer cable enters from the transmission connection and move the cable left/ right or up/down or any combination thereof until the needle is steady and then fix it in the position that remedies the flutter.  This worked swell with my C and haven’t had fluttering for 5 years since it was done!  Hope this helps!  300’ly,  Rob Kern

Hello guys,

My 300D speedometer needle is starting to jerk around just a little.

I'm guessing something needs lube? Can you guys offer any suggestions?
