What else could be causing both the speedometer and cruise not to fuction.

My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

On some Dodge pickups, the speedometer cable connection or housing on the transmission can cause this issue to occur, as a fault here can trigger an error code that may cause the cruise control to not work correctly. It’s also possible that you have an electrical issue behind the dash or with the cruise control relay that can cause issues as you’ve described.
