Speedometer jumps to 40mph right from start

Odyssey 1997, 125 tml, created a special problem: Speedometer raises up to 40 mph right after the vehicle starts to move. Up from that clock works normally. Milometer works normally. Honda service suspected that transmission connection part would be broken. Any ideas?

99 ford Taurus won't go over 35-40 mph, however speedometer reads 120 mph from start. Tranny seems fine and no check lights whatsoever.


Scan the vehicle for fault codes first. Sounds like you need to check the vehicle speed sensor signal into the speedometer. If that is ok then send the speedo head out for repair.

What could cause metal on metal grinding at 40 mph and above on '96 Pathfinder?


First thing is to check the brakes, especially the condition of the pads, and if you have worn right through them, the condition of the calipers, and finally the rotors. Sounds like one of these old the key.
In any case can you get back to us with the solution so that others can be helped in the future, thanks.

Speedometer off


Over the years I have had many complaints of the speedometer being inaccurate, few times has it actually been the case, about 5% I would say. You can have the speeds checked for accuracy by any dealer using a known good vehicle speedometer pace car, done the test dozens of times. Normal speedo accuracy is plus or minus 3 MPH.

Speedometer jumps around


Sorry but the solution for this may be a bit on the big dollar side, 1st have the system scanned to see if the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) is working correctly, it is the source of the signal that gives you the speed of the van, if that is ok then more than likely the electronic speedometer is defective, it must be removed from the car and sent out for rebuilding.

Speedometer isnt reading right....EX: if im going 40 the speedometer says im going 65


From the sounds of it the vehicle computer was switched from mph to kph. You should be able to change this back using the driver information center located above your stereo under your settings options. 40mph=64.4 kph. If you have your owners manual available may want to consult that how to completely change it back.

GMC sierra speedometer stuck at 40mph


There was not a recall, but there was a class action settlement where GM agreed to extend the warranty on certain vehicles for this problem. Check www.gmspeedometerrecall.com to see if you qualify.

Speedometer - 40MPH


the speedo is electronic, not cable, this problem is caused by a sticking stepper motor that moves the needle, a stepper motor is a miniature electric motor that can move and hold one position, this was a common problem at the dealer I worked at, u will need to pull the speedo and send it out for repair, I use the following link for this service.
