You need to check your out put speed sensor that will be located on the trans, Also check wiring and plus where harness connects to sensor. Do you know which type of transmission you have? I also need the year , Model ,engine size. Also is it a manual or auto trans?

What does the speedometer cable screw into before the transmission??

most speedo cables attached directly to the adaptor that holds the drive gear in place in the transmission housing. This adaptor can be removed and the gear comes out with it . The teeth can be inspected and if they are not full and in tact then it is possible that the meshing with the drive gear on the output shaft is not happening. replacement speedo gears are available but you will need the one you have as the gears have several different teeth ratios to allow for speedo corrections

Speedo not working

Hate to tell you but your gonna have to redo everthing you did and recheck the speedo cable. Make sure you didn't stripe it or the gears inside the speedo and make sure its correctly installed and not kinked anywhere.
Now for the real scary part the other end of this cable goes into the transmission's output shaft. If you find that the cable's end at the speedo gauge and the gauge its self is a-ok ...then you have to inspect the cable at the tranny end and the gear it goes to. If cable is worn no big deal ( you buy a new cable and install) but if gear is worn Uh.. have to replace outputshaft on tranny to repair gear.
I'm hoping you didn't correctly install cable on speedo.
Good luck

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.

Speedometer not working

First you need go to your local parts store, buy a manual on this model pickup,and read it. The reading is to help you understand how things work together and help if you attempt the repair. Next, if the dash is electric, or digital it properly is a electric unit in that it will use a pulse type sensor to provide the speedo signal for speed input. 2. It a mechanical input if there is a cable that connect the speedo with the transmission towards the rear of the tranny, it usaully screws on it. The cable binds and breaks are most common problem, take the cable off at trans, take a drill and attach it to the cable, spin it up see if speed shown, if not then you the cable good if not broken, and there a problem in the speedo itself. If so, either get it rebuilt or by new unit. If its the electric unit, and the dash does turn on, verify by other gauge working, if so check the sensor that provides the signal.

Pull the drive cable out of the back of the speedo and try to turn it. If it turns you drive cog in the box is worn out and needs to be replaced.If it dose not turn your speedo needs to be replaiced.

2001 ford Expedition odometer reads 100mph

I used to calibrate police speedometers, The odometer by the way is the device that records how much distace you have travelled, The little numbers on the bottom of your speedo. If your speedo reads 100mph regardless of how fast you are travelling, The answer is simple you have some dirt jammed in your speedo. Check that your speedo is mechanical ie it has an armoured square ended cable that comes from the engine to the back of your speedo. Get your hand round the back of the dash and find the back of the speedo. See if you can feel an armoured cable going into the speedo, if so it will usually unscrew and let you pull the square drive inner out. This task is easier if you can first get the speedo out. It will have to come out. Then take the speedo apart without removing the pointer. A cup spins round a magnet and the pivots on the magnet sometimes get glued up. Clean with fine paint brush and parrafin. DO NOT TOUCH THE HAIRSPRING. Get diagram of dragcup speedo as it will show you all the parts. Hope this helps

Speedo quit working-- trans

your fluid is low and quite possible you seized your tranny up apply fluid and dont just rely on dipstick for this make sure the tranny is full of fluid

your linkage to transmission might have come apart another reason for no shifting

now for the speedo
there is a little device that connects speedo cable to the tranny and then the mechanical of tranny from there is called a speedo bullet
if you seized your tranny the speedo bullet would have gotten sheared off in side the speedo bullet is wrenched on and can be wrenched off replace the bullet speedo should start working again
