You have 2 problems: the mounting bracket behind the dashboard has broken loose, thus it "flipped" over. Secondly, the speedometer cable is probably kinked or broken and needs to be replaced...

    I have looked and cant find a cable anywhere. I think it might be an electronic speedometer

    I have another problem that I am looking to solve. I have two cars that I need to haul about 250 miles. Is there any place to rent a tralier that will haul two that can be towed by another truck?

    Try finding a flatbed trailer, like the ones commercial companies use to haul large machinery.

    I think you are right about the speedometer, my error! To be sure you should get the Haynes repair manual.

Code p0720


I looked up the code in the Haynes Repair Manual due to having the same car this is what it says for your code-P0720 Low Output SPD sensor RPM, Above 15 MPH. The relationship between the Output Shaft Speed Sensor and vehicle speed is not within acceptable limits.

Speedodometer 1992 toyota not working


The sensor is usually located at the passenger side axel near the wheel drum. It works by sending a signal to the PCM at the exact velocity. I think it is the sensor.

Very possible bad head gasket and fowled out plugs and/or O2 sensors. Remove spark plugs and check condition of them and pull O2 sensor to see if it is green from antifreeze. Good luck.

Speedodometer stays on 20mph when not moving


this is in the speedometer unit itself. either purchase a known good part from an auto recycler or people still rebuild these. on these, they are individual little motors inside and they will probably just replace the speedo motor and reseal it. unfortunately you can not purchase these parts yourself.

When driving, Speedodometer drops to zero.


I thought this year of Santa Fe had a 100k Warranty? If so, take it to the dealer and get it fixed. Even if it's not under warranty, take it and get it fixed! This is dangerous to use with the cruise control!! Do not use the Cruise Control until you get this fixed. It sounds like a bad speedomoter sensor, and that is confusing the Cruise Control. Either your speedometer is going to stop working altogether, or your going to RAM someone from behind going at a DANGEROUS rate of speed. Take it and get it fixed, and do not use the Cruise Control until it is fixed.

Speedodometer


The speedo is electronic, only 2 things will cause this, the vehicle speed sensor, the other is the speedo head itself, this assumes you have checked the fuses, the most likely problem is the speedo itself.
