Question about 2001 Lincoln Navigator

1 Answer

It is a 4x4 and I cant find the speed sensor that operates the speedometer. The speedometer sticks at 100mph at a dead stop. It also jumps around between 75 and 80 at random when I am only doing 45 mph.

On our Lincoln, the problem was the Alternator shorting and energizing the ground circuit with Positive juice. Our speedometer and odometer were both affected.

We had miles advancing and 45-50 MPH at a stop. Then inaccurate readings while the car was moving.

Car-stuff.com seems to have the best price for the actual speed sensor which is located in the differential @$11.94.

Please rate my solution and I hope I was helpful.

Hi have a 1998 chevy convertion van 163 miles.runs very good...lately the speedometer gets crazy after 40 mph and when get to 100mph try to shot off.... Any sugestions?


At 100 mph the PCM may be shutting it down as a rev or speed safety limiter. Is it jumping to 100 or are you actually running 100 when it tries to shut down ?

Speed and rpm is jumping around at same time why


the wheel speed sensor on the rear deferential will cause your speedometer to stop working. But for both the gagues to jump around the dash may need to be replaced. I have also seen a low charged battery or bad or loose connection.

Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John

This is really common on the 03-06 Yukon instrument clusters. It's caused by failing stepper motors on the circuit board and can be repaired. Check out this page for more about it and how to get it fixed - Yukon instrument cluster repair

The speedometer jumps around and will sometimes pass 100mph then stick. It may stay there for days then hop back and work for awhile.


Assuming everything else is working either you need a new speed sensor or a replacement for your speedometer cluster. From your description I would guess the cluster. Look around on ebay and craiglist for a used replacement. Usually a cluster will fit many different years, you will be looking for newer and/or lower mileage.Do not buy a new one for that year vehicle.
