Speedometer works intermittently

The speedometer occansionally with a push of the trip meter, or a wack to the dash may work for a while but usually stops. Is this a sensor and where is it located for replacement. Also a squeeling belt bthat doesn't quite with belt dressing...any ideas?

Other than maybe a loose connection idk about your speedo problem, but your belt problem, you should check all of your pulleys, make sure none of them are seized, or starting to go out.

Entire instrument cluster on dash flashes, and trip meter

Sounds like there IS a loose connection. There is a large connector on the back of the speedometer cluster. You'll have to pull the cluster and that's no easy chore. Sometimes the connectors get corroded also.

Before you tear into it, CAREFULLY push the entire cluster forward to make sure it is snapped into place. Push in a couple of spots using the palm of your hand and a soft cloth so you won't scratch the plastic cover.

Good Luck . . . . . . .

My speedometer quit but the odometer still works (1998 F150) can you solve this

Usually it's the opposite. The speedometer works and the odomater and trip meter go inop. Most likely the speedometer assembly is bad. If the odometer is working you have a signal from the gray and black wire .

Odometer / trip meter not working speedometer does work help

The dash cluster is bad. It's a mechanically driven part in the dash & it's easy to just replace the guage assembly.
