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...
