I had this problem with my 1996 nissan I removed the odometer and speedometer, I found that the screws on the back side which old all the circuit cables (flat with copper) were loose. I tightened the screws and have not had a problem since. You can go to AUTO ZONE and have them test the engine light issue and if the code comes back stating that there is a speed sensor err then have the reset the check engine light if this has solved you speedometer issue.

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.

Check fuses, you are not supposed to "jump" MB thats why they have forever roadside assistance. You charge battery while disconnected and reconnect to start.

My speed ometer stays stuck then jumps around is it a sensor or electrical


1) Remove the rear wheel speed sensor from the axle housing.
2) Connect a Digital Volt/Ohm Meter (DVOM) across the two sensor terminals and record the reading.
3) The reading should be between 0.8 and 1.4 k Ohms. If not, replace the sensor.
thanks mate!!!!!!!!
