Your problem is NOT a fuse. The speedometer receives an electronic signal from an analogue transmitter mounted in the rear differential. It's the little button in the rear diff with two wires attached to it. Check to see if the wiring is chaffed or broken. If not, then it's probably the transmitter. A competent mechanic should be able to replace one for less than 200.00, parts and labor. If this does not fix it, then the problem is in the head, which can be expensive. You might get a used head if you can get a 90 day guarrantee on the part from the salvage company.

Good Luck!

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.

Speedometer and Odometer quick working. How do I


Follow the speedometer cable from the firewall, down to the transmission. It should bolt in the transmission, remove the cable from the transmission, and turn the gear to check to see if speedometer is working, if not, it's most like the speedometer head unit.

Speedomerter and odometer are not working


You have a bad "speed sensor". It's located in the transmission. Your speedometer and odometer are not cable controlled, they are electronically controlled by your speed sensor.

My speedometer and odometer stopped working


Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.
