My speedometer stop working what can i do to fix it


Causes...............

Faulty Vehicle Speed Sensor
- Vehicle speed sensor harness or connectors is open or shorted
- Vehicle speed sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)




The P0500 code is very common on the Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Yaris, Toyota Camry, Toyota Tundra, Toyota RAV-4. Before replacing the sensor you should try cleaning the sensor gear and erasing the code. If the light comes back you may have to replace the sensor.

I have a 2001 ford esscort zx2 speedo stopped working got the code off the check engine saying i need a new speed sensor after replacing the speed sensor speedo still doesnt work


Many of the newer cars have more then one speed sensor. In fact some have as many as four of them. Did you disconnect your negative battery cable when you replaced the bad sensor? If you did not do that there is a chance you burned up the sensor you replaced. I hope this helps you out.

The speedometer will not work. We replace the wheel speed sensor and it still does not work. What else could be wrong?


you didn't state year or model but you said you replaced wheel speed sensor which is not correct the wheel speed sensors are for the antilock brakes and traction control

Your problem is with the vehicle speed sensor that on the transmission not on the wheels
or you might have a bad speedometer it self does the odometer work ? if the odometer works more than likely your problem is with the speedometer it self and not the speed sensor

Speedometer needle is on the wrong side of the pin, so the speedometer won't work. Can you help?


I am assuming you have a 4-speed transmission?
There are 2-speed sensor on the front of the transmission. Input and Output Speed Sensors.
They are level with each other, right above the top line of the Solenoid (wiring harness goes into this box-like assembly) The one that is closest to the Solenoid is the Input Sensor. The one (at the same level) towards the left side of the van is the Output sensor.
I believe a 1-in wrench will work, after you unplug the sensors. Torque going-on for both is 20 ft-lbs. Before replacing the sensors - you may remove the sensors and clean the metal particles off the interior tips of the sensors and reinstall and check operations. Start with removal, cleaning, replacing the Output Speed Sensor as the Speedometer Info is directly involved with this. If cleaning does not fix the problem then replace it and check operations, before replacing the Input Speed Sensor. This will save you money from replacing both sensor.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at fixya.com

Abs light and brake light came on wont turn back off


There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. That sensor went bad and replacing it took care of the problem. What caused mine to go bad was apperantly water got into the differential when launching and loading my boat. check to see if gear lube needs to be replaced also.
The answer above is perfectly correct. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins. Good Luck!
I second the second answer :) My ABS light was on, my BRAKE light was on, my CHECK ENGINE light was on, my SPEEDOMETER wouldn't work below 35 mph, then quit working alltogether. Once the speedomenter quit working the odometer and cruise control quit working. I replaced the rear differential mounted speed sensor ($33) and then reset the CHECK ENGINE light by disconnecting the positive battery cable for a couple of minutes. EVERYTHING then worked.
Replace rear differential speed sensor as follows:
a) remove parking brake cable bracket (1/2" socket)
b) remove speed sensor bolt (9/16" deep socket)
c) remove metal speed sensor cover
d) remove speed sensor from rear differential housing (use channel lock pliers, twist gently back and forth while applying upward pressure. Once the speed sensor has a small gap between it and the rear differential housing, insert a flat-blade screwdriver and gently apply upward pressure while gently twisting speed sensor back and forth.
e) disconnect speed sensor from speed sensor cable
f) lubricate new sensor with WD-40, insert into rear differential housing. It will NOT go in all the way by hand, so do NOT force it nor hit it with anything made out of metal.
g) replace metal speed sensor cover
h) Insert speed sensor bolt and tighten LIGHTLY until a small amout of pressure is felt. Tap speed sensor with rubber hammer until it pops into housing. Finish tightening of speed sensor bolt.
i) replace brake cable bracket, replace 1/2" nut and tighten
j) disconnect positive battery cable for 2 minutes, reconnect positive battery cable
h) start vehicle, enjoy,
