    Hi, Can anyone shed some light on why my analog speedo runs 4mph slow. My digital speedo is correct, I checked it with gps. Is there a method to calibrate it? I did do the cluster recalibration with no change! Thanks for any input.

    Sorry, forgot to give the year. It is a 2010 SRT8. Detonator yellow!

    Did you or previous owner change the cluster face? i.e. yellow dash cluster insert to replace the factory white face?

    No, the cluster is white. Car is untouched, no mods.

    The only way I know of to fix it is to remove the needle and place it back on 4 mph higher. This is done by removing the cluster similar to if you were changing the dash cluster face.
    At 6 min into the video you see how to remove the needles. It's not that big a deal to do this. I changed my dash face out to a purple overlay.

    No problem.
    Did you ever consider changing the color of your dash face? This would be the time to do it!
    Either way, let us know how it works out for you.
