Have you changed the wheels and tires on you vehicle to aftermarket ones? if so, the chrysler dealer can "relearn" the new tire size that is on you car, adjusting the speedometer accordingly

Either the gauge is bad, the cable is kinked or the speedometer connector is bad...at the tranny.

SOURCE: speedometer

The speedo is electronic and has failed, you will need to have it repaired by an authorized GM repair shop that does GM electronics, this is not the dealer, they will send it out and charge 2X, send it out for repair yourself, bypass the dealer.

Have you called transmission place? Did they also install it? Ask them if they changed speedometer adapter, and mention the difference in speed.

SOURCE: I have a Chrysler Town

Chrysler products allow you to program the computor for the tire size on the vehicle. I have no idea how this could have been altered, but find someone with a scanner and have them give that a shot.

The speedo in my 95 mustang Gt Is 10 miles an hour fast


A vehicle speed sensor that is starting to fail could cause this, or less than likely bad wiring or connections, or yes, a bad cluster could do this... But how exactly did she notice the speedometer was 10MPH fast?? There are no real accurate speedometers in vehicles (Don't get me wrong they shouldn't be off by 10MPH) but there is a 5 or so percent difference high or low in many vehicles even with stock powertrains. I've plugged in with a diagnostic scanner on many vehicles and the dash speedo shows 60MPH, but the electronic speed readout on the scanner reads as low as 55MPH or as high as 65MPH

I have a 97 Lesabre limited that the odometer doesn't work. It hasn't in 40k miles. The speedometer shows way over the speed. For example it shows 100 mph at around 40 mph. Does this sound like one...


You most likely have a defective gauge cluster assembly. GM offers repaired clusters for some models, but they can be costly. (300-400bucks)

1994 honda prelude vtec speedometer tach problem


Possible speed sensor. I know the speed sensors are a problem with hondas. A new speed sensor is about $200 and can be easily replaced. It bolts to the top of the transmission on the firewall side. Do NOT buy an e-bay one. They are only about $30 but are junk

Speedometer/Odometer is off about 10%, 2006 Jetta, 2.5


I have a 2006 and a 2004 Jetta - the '06 is off by 4 mph and the '04 is off by 2 mph - differences calcuated by multiple GPS units in the cars for testing.

Apparently I took the easy way out and bought larger tires to compensate for the speedo difference. My '04 now matches my GPS mph and my '06 is off by just .5 mph.

Go to http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp?action=submit and compare the OEM size to larger size tires - this will tell you, in MPH, the difference between the tires. Figure out how much your speedometer is off, go to this web site and find a tire that will be "faster" than the OEM that is equal or close to the speedometer difference.
