The places I'd look are: the connectors to the dash, the dash ground and I'd recycle the connector on the computer.  All gauges are fed from the computer.  Make sure the computer is grounded properly, too.

The speedometer bounces and sometimes does'nt work at all, and odometer hasn't changed sametime


Right off the bat it sounds like a broken speedometer cable. As the cable spins from the gearing of the transmission it is clicking against the broken part of the cable running to the speedometer gauge. The frictional clicking is what's causing your needle to bounce around. Since the cable is probably broken and cannot spin long enough to move the odometer numbers. Raise your vehicle safely and disconnect the speedometer from the transmission. then see if you can pull the cable out of the housing. If only a portion of the cable comes out, then that should answer your question. Be careful when you disconnect the speedometer cable from the transmission as not to lose any small pieces that cause the drive mechanism to work.

How do I fix my speedometer kilometer distance reading


It has probably been messed with at some stage if you are not the original owner of the vehicle because these items rarely fail.
What is the year and model of vehicle you have?

The car is an automatic.


When you say the speedometer does not work, do you mean the needle is stuck at certain speed or is at zero all the time.. If it is at zero all the time, replace your meter. If it's stuck at certain speed, give it a knock with your fingers. And if that do not work, drill a pin hole with a fine drill just above the position where the needle is stuck and using a fine thin wire, push the needle back to zero position.

I have a 2001 Voyager and recenlty had to have the timing belt replaced. When I got my car back from the mechanic my speedometer needle was below the stopper so I took it back the next day and the mechanic...


My BS meter is pegged. The dash does not need to be touched to do a timing belt, the timing belt is in the engine, so what that has to do with the speedometer???? I would not take my car there as you caught him in a lie. I suspect the battery was disconnected, which is OK and things happen, so tell the customer what the deal is..... So heres what I want you to do. Hold in the trip odometer button, it will read SOF in the display, then it will tell the software numbers, codes, then will read "END" then it will do gauge checking and sweep tests, and the needle should reset to the correct "0" unless the mechanic has totally screwed it up.

Battery changed on 2002 toyota camry, speedometer pegged at 140


Try disconnecting the battery again, only the + side. Wait for 3-5 min before hooking back up. Turn the switch on but not over, then start the car after a few seconds.

Speedometer doesen't always work . It will starting working then will quit.


Check the speedometer cable if it is fitted correctly (from tyres to meter). In worst case open speedometer check the coil and try to give it a twist with your fingers. if the needle doesn't move a bit your speedometer has gone so you have to change your speedometer.

2001 chrysler voyager speedometer needle stuck on bottom side of stop pin.


I have had this problem

put key in ignition (do not turn on) and press the trip button for about 30 seconds.

This should reset your speedometer

If one hits the trip button with the engine off it goes into a diagnostic mode and the speedometer pegs out. This basically lets it finish the diagnostics.

Dealer will charge you $800 for a 3 minute job.

I used this solution from Edmunds forums but cannot find the links anymore.

I have had two others reset theirs for the same problem.
