the next step is to have a scanner hooked up with live data capabilities and see if the speedo is getting a signal from the VSS, if it is then the speedo stepper motor that moves the needle is defective and the unit must be sent out for repair..

Check the wire harness, make sure there are no breaks or crushed wires. Also check the wire harness to the TCM, look for any loose connections. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.

if I remember correctly, the speed sensor plugs into the trans and there were some concerns with the gear in the trans

simple test, with the engine running, have someone watch your speedometer while you hold the sensor in your hand, plugged in and spin the gear. If the speedometer works then suspect the trans gear

Speedometer stopped working check engine light came on 20 miles later car stalled and broke down later started up got home next morning speedometer works check engine light still on help


The car could not sense the signal from the sensor that determines engine speed and went into shutdown and limpin. First step is to retrieve the Trouble code and determine what is wrong. Do not drive the car.

My speedometer not working? is it cause of the after-market radio i put in be the reason.. mitsubishi galant 2002 6 cylinder


So we can rule out the speed sensor and its circuit to the PCM.

I just checked through another area of my database and it seems the speed sensor is systated as on the side of transaxle, near firewall, maybe you can dheck that out to confirm, just out of curiosity and for future reference and some portion of testing requires unplugging the conections.

Anyway I will provide a complete diagnostic pocedures for you to check through and hope an answer is found.

PS. After going through the diagnostic procedure, I believe your radio is the cause of the problem. Refer to # 10

SPEEDOMETER DOES NOT WORK

1. Connect scan tool to data link connector, check for Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). If DTC P0500 (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is set, diagnose this DTC first. Go to step 6 . If DTC P0500 is not set, go to next step.

2. On Eclipse, if trip odometer is not working normally, go to next step. If trip odometer is working normally go to step 5. On Galant, if tachometer is not working normally, go to next step. If tachometer is working normally, go to step 5

3. Disconnect instrument cluster connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Connect DVOM between ground and instrument cluster connector terminal No. 52 (Black/White wire) on Eclipse or terminal No.29 (Black/White wire) on Galant. If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check harness connectors and harness wiring between instrument cluster and ignition switch for damage. Repair as necessary.

4. Using a DVOM, check resistance between ground and instrument cluster harness connector terminal No. 34 (Black wire) on Eclipse or terminal No. 30 (Black wire) on Galant. If resistance is less than 2 ohms, replace instrument cluster printed circuit board or speedometer and tachometer. If resistance is greater than 2 ohms, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

5. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor connector and instrument cluster connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Connect DVOM between ground and harness side of instrument cluster connector terminal No. 29 (White/Blue wire) on Eclipse or terminal No. 16 (Yellow/Black wire) on Galant. Voltage should be 5 volts. If voltage is okay, repair or replace instrument cluster printed circuit board or speedometer and tachometer. If voltage is not 5 volts, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

6. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor harness connector and connect DVOM to harness side. Check vehicle speed sensor power supply voltage between terminal No. 1 (Black/White wire) on Eclipse or (Black/Blue wire) on Galant and ground. Battery voltage should be present. If voltage is okay, go to next step. If voltage is not present, check vehicle speed sensor harness connector and wiring. Repair as necessary.

7. Using DVOM, check resistance between ground and vehicle speed sensor harness connector terminal No. 2 (Black wire). Resistance should be less than 2 ohms. If resistance is greater than 2 ohms, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

8. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor harness connector. Connect DVOM between ground and harness side terminal No. 3 (White/Blue wire) on Eclipse or (Yellow/Black wire) on Galant. If 9 volts are not present, check vehicle speed sensor harness connector and wiring. Repair as necessary. If 9 volts are present, go to next step.

9. Check harness wiring between vehicle speed sensor connector to radio and tape player connector, auto-cruise control ECU ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) connector and instrument cluster connector. If connectors or wiring are damaged, repair as necessary. If connectors and wiring are okay, go to next step.

CAUTION: To prevent damage to scan tool, always turn ignition off before connecting or disconnecting scan tool.

NOTE: If ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) is replaced, immobilizer-ECU should also be replaced. Each ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) has an encrypted code for immobilizer-ECU, and is registered in immobilizer-ECU.

10. Connect scan tool to data link connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Read DTC. Disconnect radio and tape player connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace radio and tape player. If speedometer does not work, disconnect auto-cruise control ECU connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace auto-cruise control ECU. If speedometer does not work, disconnect instrument cluster harness connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace instrument cluster. If DTC P0500 resets when any connector is disconnected, replace ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T).

Speedometer and Odometer not working


you will have to check to see if the connection is a cable or electronic sensor. If it is a cable loosen the end by the transmission and check to see if it is broken or if the end is stripped if so replace the cable. If it is a sensor you might have to change the speed sensor. good luck

2000 Mitsubishi Galant speedometer just quit working changed out speed sensor, no help, what do you suggest i should try next any help would be welcomed, thanks Marty


The next thing would be to test the output of the speed sensor, if there is not a signal from sensor then you could have a problem in transmission or more likely with the speedometer itself. There will be a code set in the Computer for an inoperative speed sensor or signal from the speed sensor. You can go to Autozone to get the computer checked with a code reader for free. If code P0500 is set then diagnose this code first.

1993 toyota camry le 4cl speedometer wount work?


It can be faulty vehicle speed sensor .The sensor connects to the differential.The sensor in the transmission that tells the instrument panel how fast the transmission is turning. Sometimes that sensor breaks.
There is a speed sensor on the transmission that sends a signal to the
speedometer control on the back of the instrument cluster, and diagnosis is
pretty straightforward. The On-board Diagnostics Generation II (OBD II)
scan tools used by professional technicians should have the ability to read
the signal generated by the transmission speed sensor and therefore check
the function of the speed sensor. Even if the technician's scan tool does
not have this capability, the sensor can be checked with a volt meter at the
sensor itself.

If the sensor is putting out the proper signal, then the next step would be
to check the wiring between the speed sensor and the speedometer control by
checking the signal at the wire harness at the speedometer control. If the
signal is good, then the speedometer control is bad, and if the signal is
bad, then the wiring between the sensor and speedometer control is bad. The
most time confusing part of doing all these checks would be removing the
instrument cluster to get at the speedometer control, about a half-hour
total for all the checks.----------
If the needle moves you have a broken pinion or counter gear.If not, then I would replace both speedometer cables.---------------Thank you.

you might need a new speedo cable but if its a sensor you could need a new sensor and that might not be cheap.
