Question about 2006 Kia Spectra EX

Open Question

Dials intermittently switch on and of and speedometer does not work everytime.

Hello. I have a 2006 Kia Cerato. The problem is during driving with headlights on, the lights on instrument panel with the speedometer turn off and on in a split second accompanied by a clicking sound. After this sometimes the speedometer and odometer will stop working and then after approximately 1 hour or so it stars working again after the lights turn off and on again accompanied by that clicking sound. Is it a bad connection somewhere behind the dashboard or maybe a short circuit? I would appreciate any help you can give me! Thank you very much.

Probably bad vss (vehicle speed sensor). No Cruise operation without speed sensor input to engine control module.

SOURCE: My speedometer and odometer stopped working

Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.

SOURCE: Speedometer and tachometer not working

I would suggest that you check all your fuses first. The tachometer isn't run by a cable, just one wire coming from the distributor

Two possible fixes. Replace speed sensor. If this does not fix the problem take it to your Kia dealer. There is a common problem in the wiring inside the engine compartment fuse box. They can fix it with labor only. Usually runs about $200.
