Speedometer only reads to 72 MPH?

Post by smtguy »

I recently relocated from Southern California to Phoenix, AZ and drove my e24 over. The trip was uneventful and the car ran great, but I noticed that the speedometer will only indicate up to about 72 MPH no matter how much faster I went. Everything else related to the speedo works, and the speed sensor has been replaced. My only conclusion at this point is it is something related to the instument itself.

Has anyone seen this before?
1983 Bronzit 633CSi 5 speed
2004 Audi TT Quattro 6 speed
