I will need additional information to be able to help you, such as the year make and model of your vehicle. The speedometer might be blinking because of a short. It’s also possible that the vehicle does not have the correct charging system voltage, which could also cause the jerking you’re experiencing. I recommend having a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose and repair your speedometer.
