SOURCE: speedo not working , vw golf 2001 .

I tell you for sure that is the sensor problem from gearbox.the sensor, or the wire. The fuel gauge is connected to the gearbox because is not very nice to corner and the fuel gauge go up and down. Now because the fuel gauge "didn't know" how many miles did you made, he is moving up and down. All recent cars have the same problem, and had the same problem on my girlfriend Golf 4. It was the wire. The mecanic forgot to put it back.

Look behind the cab, on the drive shaft, there is a sensor. Replace that speed sensor and speedo should work. make sure to check your wiring and that the area is clean.

Speedometer not working


run fault codes and look for a speed sensor problem . If the speedo is not reading then any other items requiring a computation of speed/ distance will not work either.

Speedo needle doesn't move, petrol gauge moves up and down, low fuel light comes on and off, rev needle and temp work. Rear fog lights light comes on dash when evan side lights switched on


Probably a break inside wiring loom of one/more of the three wires that eventually connect to the speed sensor on top of gearbox. The break I fixed in my 2003 Leon 1.6SX was in the loom under battery tray. My symptoms were no speedo working, and erratic fuel guage (particulary when under 1/2 full). I repaired one broken wire.

On a 57 plate suzuki swift the speedo and mileometre have stopped working.the fuel gauge is up and down.and now the diagnostic light has come on.any ideas


This sounds like the instrument cluster has gone faulty, unfortunately. With any luck, you might be able to find a replacement at a scrap yard somewhere to at least save some money. Otherwise, the dealership is the only other place in which to purchase one of these.

I hope this helps and good luck! :)

Acceleration hesitaiton, speedometer, overdrive light flashing


First off, I have a 1987 Supra non-turbo and I have seen a similar problem on my car. Probably one part of the two part speedo cable has broken, or the speed sensor has failed. The speedo cable turns a speed sensor which is part of the speedo gage cluster. The signal right now from the speed sensor to the computer is probably zero so the PCM thinks the car is stopped. The PCM has a limit on how high the engine will rev while the car is not moving. This is also the "limp home mode" max rpm in case the speed sensor fails. So if you fix your speedo/speed sensor, I think the acceleration problem will go away. The cable is in two parts--a "lower cable" which goes from the tranny to a junction and an "upper cable" which goes from the junction to the speedo. You will need to determine which cable is broken or if the speed sensor itself has a broken part.

To check the cable, find the junction under the car on the passengers side and disconnect it. The cable frequently breaks right at this spot. You will be able to turn the upper speedo cable by hand and have a partner listen/look for results on the speedo cluster. If the cable checks out, you may have to pull the instrument cluster to check what is wrong with the speed sensor.

Secondly, the flashing O/D light is signaling you that there is a trouble code waiting (probably for the transmission which also needs a speed signal). You can obtain trouble codes from the PCM via the diagnostic connector in the engine compartment. The connector is on the driver's side of the compartment just behind the fuse box. It is labeled "diagnostics". Using a paper clip or a hair pin and a jumper wire, connect the terminals "T" and "E1". (there is a guide to the terminals on the inside of the plastic flip cover.) Turn the ignition to on but do not start the car. The check engine light will start flashing two digit codes. (Four flashes followed by two flashes=Code 42= speed sensor signal lost.) There will be a pause then the next code. At the end of the codes, it will start repeating the sequence of codes again until you turn off the ignition. If there are no codes, the check engine light will just flash continously once every second. Don't forget to remove the diagnostic jumper before starting or driving the car.

Broken speedometer on 1997 ford explorer


does your cruise control work? If not, check the wiring from the VSS to the speedo cluster. Check VSS connector closely for pin pudhout or corrosion

Sometimes, the VSS siganl is converted by the instrument cluster and sent to the PCM and speedo.

Check engine light on?


Speedometer
The electronic speedometer (17255) receives a speed signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) (9E731). This sensor is also used to sense vehicle speed for the engine management system and to regulate the cruise control when equipped.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vehicle Speed Sensor The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) (Figure 53) is a variable reluctance or Hall-effect type sensor that generates a waveform with a frequency that is proportional to the speed of the vehicle. If the vehicle is moving at a relatively low velocity, the sensor produces a signal with a low frequency. As the vehicle velocity increases, the sensor generates a signal with a higher frequency. The PCM uses the frequency signal generated by the VSS (and other inputs) to control such parameters as fuel injection, ignition control, transmission/transaxle shift scheduling and torque converter clutch scheduling.
