    It could be a bad cluster.

    I just found out the problem with speedometer needle bouncing. It had something related to new Kenwood (DNX6990HD) head unit I just installed. If I remove radio fuse out of the fuse box.Then speedometer woks just fine, no jerking at all. When I put radio fuse back, needle goes crazy again.
    Any suggestion of how to fix this, I thank you very much in advance.

    Does your radio tap into the speed sensor by any chance? Sounds like the radio connections or the interface.

    Thank you very much "the cadillac man"...You hit a nail right on its head. I disconnected VSS (speed sensor) wire from AXXESS-GMOS-100 and Kenwood DNX6990HD head unit.
    Everything works perfectly. Speedometer needle stay steady as it should be.
    You're the man! Thanks again.

    Glad to help,
    most time the vss (speed sensor) wire is used for certain feature depending the radio some use it for gps when it ain't getting a signal and rarely auto volume but you won't notice it anyway.
