It is attached to the back of the speedometer and then at the transmission after it goes through the firewall.

Well I would verify the trany speed gear is "ate up" first, theres only one 10mm bolt that holds it in place, sure the area around the speedo cable is very CLEAN before removing it any dirt in there would make things bad to say the least. If you pull the cable out the gear is attached to the cable if it looks good then put it back together and remove your cluster (speedo and other gauges inside) I suggest you pick up a repair manual at a big auto store on MK1-MK2 vdubs (82-92) to explain how to remove speedo cable from back of cluster its kinda of tricky getting your fingers back there and pressing it together to get it to release. Once out drive the car and see if that cable is turning from the inside if it is then its your speedo gauge that is faulty. Grab a cluster from a scrap yard, if that cable is NOT turning then the gearing inside the trany is messed up which would mean taking the trany apart to repair it. If that was the case you would be cheaper to replace the whole trany with a used one. Good luck

SOURCE: 1990 wrangler YJ speedometer doesn't work ( electrical?)

Ok...if i have this right, you have a cable driven speedometer with a gizmo connected in between which you bypassed with one continuous cable. and the speedometer still does not work? If so, find another working unit and replace it. If you find a unit with a reading close to what yours reads, that's fine. keep the reciept for the unit and just make a note on what actual miles were at the change. A dealer would need to be more precise but its over 20 years old! no one is going to care waht the miles are and it's more important to know hwo fast you are going!!!

    Speedometer bounces from current speed down to zero (where it sometimes sticks)

    It won't be a cable, as it's impossible for a cable driven speedo to perform this way.
    It's an electronic speedo.

    Check and/or replace the speedo sensor in the gearbox housing.

    The speedometer is not working inside the car

    Hi, you probably have a broken cable or a bad speedometer..

    Check the cable that runs from the gearbox to the dash, (the connection IN the dash looks like a green receptical for a light bulb, its HARD to miss) make sure that it turns properly and that, when in its correct position, turns the small brass coloured part inside the speedo mechanism (the end of the cable should be a square-ish prong that is should insert into a hole in the extreme rear of the speedometer mechanism).
    If the unit doesnt work (if the cable is fine and the mechanism bares no apparent defects then you have to replace the speedometer)

    Speedometer Cable replacement

    A universal kit will work for your application. Most of the time the center cable is what is damaged.

    1. Remove speedometer cable from transmission
    2. Remove speedo gear retainer and remove speedo gear.
    3. Pull out cable from sheath - If broken you will only get part of it
    4. Remove instrument panel and pull out section of cable still trapped in cable sheath if applicable.

    For re install follow directions on package.


    1. Cable appears un-damaged: Check to make sure the speedo gear is not damaged where the cable enters it. Then also check the back of the speedo head cable hole for damage.
    2. You can measure you two broken pieces to arrive at an appropriate length for ordering purposes.
    3. Make sure this is well lubricated on install otherwise the speedo can jump up and down or damage the new cable.

    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.
