Default Speedo stuck at 150+

I went to start my 00 gt today, had to jump start it, but when I got her going the speedometer was pegged all the way over to 150+ and wouldn't move. It was the only gage not working correctly. Any ideas on how to fix/figure out what happened?

It got stuck when the gauges did a full sweep after the battery died and you jumped it, I have seen this 2 or 3 times before. It may become "unstuck" if you hit a good bump--otherwise pull the instrument cluster, take it apart and "flick" the indicator needle back around toward zero with your finger...

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.
