Look around the auto transmission for wires that lead to the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor):

    1. Remove the flywheel to converter attaching nuts. Use a socket and breaker bar on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt. Rotate the pulley clockwise as viewed from the front to gain access to each of the nuts.
    2. NOTE: On belt driven overhead cam engines, never rotate the pulley in a counterclockwise direction as viewed from the front. Remove the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) clamp retaining bolt . . .

    1. Remove the speedometer cable and/or vehicle speed sensor from the transfer case (4WD) or extension housing (2WD).
    2. On 2WD vehicles, scribe a mark indexing the driveshaft to the rear axle flange. Remove the driveshaft.
    1. On 4WD vehicles, remove the transfer case.

    Odometer isnt working in our s-10 pickup how do we fix

    the only way is to send it to a place that rebuilds them to be fixed. or you can go to a wrecking yard and get a instrument cluster and replace your old one. there is paper work that has to be done in recording the mileage on the truck with the original assembly and the mileage showing on the replacement assembly, when and who replaced it, in order to have the correct mileage known by the department of transportation so you won`t get in trouble with tampering with the odometer.

    I have problems with my speedmeter does not work from my trailblazer 2003 i checked the fueses and they are ok

    Does your odometer work? If it does, then I would suspect the stepper motor in the instrument cluster that drives the speedometer is bad. If the odometer does not work then the problem is with the speed sensor that is located on the transmission.

    Speedmeter dont work ,the milege dont move and i cant tell how much am driving at mile/hr.

    Sounds like you have a bad vehicle speed sensor which will also cause your odometer (the mileage guage) not to function as well. The sensor mounts near the back of the transmission

    Odometer and speedmeter doesn't work

    in the Fuse Box there are Fuses for this. They are labeled as "Guages" "Illumination"and Speed on some Models. Get a Flashlight and look Really close at the Fuses. There should be at least one that is Blown.
