    My engine sometime stalls when I come off the throttle or it will go almost down to a stall and then rev up to about 6-700 revs. My speedo is not working and the check engine light comes on and off. The dealer that read the computer said it was a "Idle control system malfunction" and had no solution.

    This just started 3 days ago. I'm getting ready to replace the speedo gear in the trans and see if that fixes the problem. the reason for the check engine light is the speedo not working and the odometer not working either. I'll post if this works.

I had this problem with mine if your cable spins wen the car is moving its not the gear box end or the cable its the speed sensor in the speedo its self its very easy to fix you have to strip the speedo out of the case the sensor is only small and on the under side of the speedo the sensor is about 50 mm long and 10 mm wide change that and it should be ok
oh remember to reset your ecu

Hello,

Im a mechanic and the same thing happened to my mine. Its the speedo cable that has snapped and because there is a sensor for speed when car in motion, if it senses no speed when you are moving, the engine check light comes on and the car behaves funny. So all you need to do is to get a new speedo cable Hope that helps

Exact same thing happened to me on my impreza 1994 not sure if same but speedo stopped working check engine light came on, all u need to do is remove the lower part of the steering column, 2 push in screws in door arch and 2 screws on the lower half of the trim, look for a sat/cble wire black in colour, feel for a round raised hole on back of speedo clocks, plug cable back into it, take it for a spin befor putting trim back on, hope this helps!!

How much does it cost to fix the speedometer on a 1995 subaru impreza


Hi.

First you have to ascertain whether the problem is in the cable or the cluster. They are both separate costs.

The cable is definitely cheaper than the cluster.

1994 subaru impreza wrx engine light on


Many automotive computers have a RPM limiting feature that tries to prevent engine damage if something is amiss. This should allow you to drive to repair point but keeps the engine from doing a lot of work.
You need to have your computer scanned to determine what the stored error codes are. You can have this done free at any auto parts chain.

1995 subaru impreza sometimes doesn't start, check engine light is on, also brake light is on.


If you get the check engine light diagnosed tht will probably show you where the problem is. You probably have a crank sensor code and will probably need to change out the crank sensor.
