Question about 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Speed / tach 'ometers don't work

I had lights replaced in the dash panel, specifically the one over the speedometer. Since then, the speedo stops working (pegged all the way around to the stop pin)... then it does work and the Tachometer is dead. I heard there's a specific sequence in turning the ignition key while holding the trip meter in ... or something like that - in order to reset everything? True? (there's nothing I can find in my owners manual).

Turn Ignition key OFF. Push and hold Odometer reset button until indicator lights come on. Wait until sequencing is complete and all will work again.

Speedometer not working on 1998 cadillac concours


You are right in thinking of the speed sensor. You should also have a check engine light on if the sensor has failed.
The sensor is mounted in the side of the transmission and takes the place of the speedo cable.

Speed ometer and tack omiter dont work all outher gadges work


If was only techomeer would have suggested Alternator. as an option get that checked, can usually get it done free especially if you are a member of a motoring organisation.

Speedo is usually operated via a connection to your wheels so that connection may be damaged if you have 'bottomed out; your car anywhere.

Speedometer and tach stopped working 92 honda accord


Since the Speedo and Tach both quit working and they use separate sending units, I would be looking for a common electrical plug they share under the dash behind the speedo. When you find said plug check to make sure that it is plugged in securely. if it seems to be plugged in well unplug it and then replug it just in case the contacts were getting a bit dirty or corroded.

1989 Honda Accord speedometer not working. What is a speedo head?


The speedo head or cluster is the part that houses the speedometer and tach, etc. now it may be the speedo cable that comes from the transmission to the speedo head that has broken. If so replace the cable and your back in business. If it is the head you can get them from your local recycle yard.

It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.

Speedometer don,t work


Depending on whether your speedo is mechanical (uses a cable), or electronic (uses an electrical wire to carry the signal from the sender), I would look it (what's in between the speedo and trans speed sender) before replacing the instrument panel. A good service manual that includes a dash wiring diagram should help trouble shoot this problem.
Good luck.
