The speedometer on my 2004 Pontiac Sunfire sticks at various speeds and does not return to 0mph when I stop. At highway speeds it will be pegged all the way to max. This condition seems to be worse when the temperature is cold. I have also noticed that the tachometer will do the same thing but is not as bad as the speedometer. When the engine is shut off and restarted the tach will reset back to 0.

All gauges were accurate until one morning when I was driving and noticed that the speedometer was stuck on 50 when car wash completely stopped. As I drove farther the speedometer rose to 70 when at a complete stop. The RPM gauge is reading 0 when car is in motion which is completely impossible.
