Speedometer not working


The speedometer cable has snapped. You need to replace the cable yourself, or have a technician do it for you. It lasted a good period of time, that's the good thing.

Speedometer not working


If the speedo and odometer do not work, the problem is usually the speed sensor in the transmission. If the odometer works but not the speedo, the problem is usually inside the speedometer assembly.

Speedometer stopped working


You probably need a new speedometer cable. It may be too old of a car to try and find one from a salvager. They periodically send the older cars to be crushed.
The cables have been known to break apart after many years of service. It is connected at the transmission and behind the instrument cluster. You have to pull the cluster out part way and reach behind to unclip the cable from the back of the speedometer housing.

Odometer and Techometer do not work after battery was jumped.


On our 2007 Subaru Forester, I followed the above tips but with one small difference. Instead of disconnecting the battery and waiting hours for the ECM to reset, I found on another page that the ECM can be instantly reset by disconnecting the negative battery cable and pressing the brake pedal for a couple of seconds. Worked immediately!
