Will a speedometer cluster from a 95 Geo Prism fit in a 93 Prism?

My speedometer is not working in my 93 Geo Prism. I replaced the VSS but still not working. Can only find a speedometer cluster for a 95 in my area. Will this fit in a 93?

If in some days, you realize that you don't want to use Gmail anymore, but you also don't want to lose your frequently contacted email addresses,you can export contacts in Gmail to transfer to your new email service. You're also able to apply this trick to backup the email addresses that you frequently contact with in case Gmail down.
In this article, I will introduce you on how to export and backup contacts in Gmail as well as export contacts in Gmail to other Gmail accounts, Outlook account or another email.
Step 1: In the Gmail web interface, click on the down - arrow next to the Gmail item (on the top left) and choose Contacts.
Step 2: Choose More-> Export in the Menu on the left.
Step 3: Click on Go to old contacts
Step 4: Click on Others item on the taskbar then choose Export...
Step 5: Choose the contact list that you want to export. Here, I will choose All contacts to export all of my contacts.
And select which formats you want to export. If you want to backup your Contacts or import it into another Gmail address, then you select option 1. Select option 2 if you want to use Outlook or Hotmail and the 3rdone if you use email service of Apple.
After having selected, click on Export.
Step 6: Now, CSV file will be downloaded to your computer.
Step 5 : You can use this file to add your contacts following the option you select in.
Good luck!

SOURCE: SPEEDOMETER CABLE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED

There is no cable on the 93 Prizms.  The problem is one of two things, either the "vehicle speed sensor" or the instrument cluster itself.   I also have a 93, and the speedometer started acting up a while ago. Sometimes it would register 0 then it would spike up to 70 and stay there at highway speeds then back to 0 upon slowing.  I replaced both items from the junk yard.  The speed sensor at an auto parts store will run about $160, and a new cluster will cost A LOT more at the dealer! I first replaced the speed sensor with no luck ($5.00 at the junkyard) the same thing happened 0 or 70.   I replaced the cluster today ($13.99 at the junkyard).  That was it! Problem solved.  The cluster is EASY to replace, remove the 2 screws from the trim piece and remove trim.  Next, remove the 4 screws that hold the cluster in place; 2 at the very top (don't remove the ones just above the cover glass) and two at the bottom.  Pull one side of the cluster out; there are 3 plugs; squeeze the center of the plugs to release the clip and wiggle them free.  Connect the replacement cluster, but before screwing it in, do a check to make sure all the panel lights work.  I had a few that were burned out, so I used the old cluster lights to replace them.   I would try replacing the cluster first.  Good luck!

SOURCE: I HAVE A 1994 GEO PRISM 1.6L THE SPEEDOMETER

I've had a similar problem with my '94 prizm. I had to replace the instrument cluster about seven or eight years ago because the speedometer quit working. After replacing with a used instrument cluster it's been working fine till now. However, the problem is back again....so I'm looking for another used one. There is definately a weakness in this speedometer design when the mileage on the car gets high. Your problem is different since you replaced both the sensor and the speedometer and it still doesn't work. Chances are, you got a speedometer that didn't work to begin with. I would try another used one.

I have a 95 grand marques the Speedo and odometer have stopped working I have already changed out the vss on the output shaft of the trans twice for the thought of possibly buying a junk sensor but to no...


Without a scan tool to confirm the BCM is getting good signal from the VSS, it's a risk. Since you've already replaced the VSS, it's time for a rebuilt cluster. DON'T buy a junyard unit. The rebuilt ones are fully refurbished and come with a warranty. Do a search for instrument cluster rebuilders.

Speedometer won't work in 97 Astro, replaced sensor..help


What sensor ? VSS - vehicle speed sensor on the transmission ? Colud be the speedometer gauge is bad . Do you know how the insturment cluster get's that info. ? Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . You have no idea how it works , don't have the diagnostic tool's to find the problem ,so do yourself a favor . The first step would be to hook up a factory or professional type scan tool to see if the VSS info is seen in the VCM ,then to see what the VCM is sending over the serial data network . Do you know what a serial data communication network is ? VCM is vehicle control module .
Speedometer and Odometer Circuit Description
An electronic speedometer is standard equipment on all models. Integrated circuits control the air core speedometer and the stepper motor odometer. Removable bulb and socket assemblies provide the lighting. The socket assembly inserts into the back of the instrument cluster.
The speedometer system consists of the following components:
• The instrument cluster
• The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) calibrator
• The VSS
• The related wiring
The VSS calibration is part of the VCM that changes the analog output from the VSS to a digital signal. The digital signal contains 4000 pulses per mile (PPM) for the instrument cluster. The VCM sends the signal to the speedometer through CKT 389. The VSS calibration matches to the final drive and the tire size of each vehicle. Reprogram the VCM with the proper VSS calibration if the final drive or tire size changes for any reason. The signal will not be accurate for the proper speedometer/odometer operation if the necessary change is not made. An incorrect VSS calibrator can also affect the following components:
• The antilock brakes
• The vehicle control module (VCM)
The cruise control systems
The VSS calibration is programmed into the VCM. Do not service the VSS calibrator separately.
The VSS is a permanent magnet signal generator that sends an analog signal proportional to the propeller shaft speed to the VCM. The VSS mounts to the transmission tailshaft extension housing on the two-wheel drive model. The VSS mounts to the transfer case output shaft housing on the all-wheel drive models.


Use a Scan Tool in order to read the vehicle control module (VCM) diagnostic trouble codes.
Are there any vehicle speed sensor related trouble codes?

Speedometer stopped working after fitting an alarm. What could be the problem?


Put everything back the way it was and see if speedometer starts working again?
Newer instrument clusters, the gages are not hardwired, The cluster receives buss data telling the instrument what to do with gages and speedometer. Checking the speedometer/vss sending unit would be a thought. Hopefully, you didn't hurt the instrument cluster?

Honda Accord EX 94 vss has been replaced, but still nothing work


If all the connection and power supplies to instrument cluster are ok,I suspect that the speedometer or instrument cluster is faulty but before you replace it, make sure the gear inside the transmission that drives the VSS is in good.

Hello I hope this is helpful.The speedometer works off a small black cable,that run's from the back of the speedometer under the dash to the transmission even if the line looks good it can still be broken inside the line.The line's are real cheap you might want to try to replace it. Hope this helps. Tim
