      Mine if I go over a big enough bump will knock and won't register that I am going any miles an hour on the interstate, not exactly the same problem as yours. I just figured it was a jeep issue and have gotten used to it..... officer I really didn't know that I was speeding.........

        I would check the connection down at your speedo gear. Just pull it out and make sure everything is clean and connected properly.

          It seems to happen to cars alot as they get older they will start sticking why? Could be numerous things any of them easy to fix not so much. most result in ripping out the dash...

            This is a problem with most tjs 97 through 2000....the connections under the dash were faulty.....I think jeep had a recall...but usually you only have to reseat the connectors...not easy but possible....if you can pull the dash panel and go through and reseat the connectors the problem will dissapear for a while....check your dealership and see if the recall is still valid...they will replace all the connectors...or used to..good luck....but really it is not that big of a problem....other than no knowing how fast you are going or any thing else...some times all my gauges would quit...untill i reseated them...that stopped it for several years, but it has come back lately but i dont drive it on the street much any more..

              Take it out

              this happened to mine. I have a 01 sahara. I took it out. on the back of it there are a couple of screws. I tightened them a little bit, don't over torque, and it has been fine for about a year and a half. hope this helps. If you need I can try to get some time to do a write up and take pics of it.

                  I will

                  I will do it, but it may be a little while. I am in the hospital with my dad having complications from his lymphoma. I will get to it when I can.
