SOURCE: 2004 Chev Venture- Speedometer has stopped working

how is your shifting, usually a bad speed sensor will set a check engine light and may cause shift errors, this trans has a internal and external speed sensor, the pcm uses the external for shift and for cruise and for also cruise control. A quick no scanner way to tell is if your cruise is working, if it is then your most likey looking at a bad cluster, take it from me i'm a master gm tech. if i don't have a scanner to do a guage sweep it's like having a broken arm while fixing these. but this should help you out.

2004 s10 Chevrolet pickup transmission is stuck in third gear and speedometer stopped working


Its probably not really stuck in 3rd.
You should have a check engine light on and trouble codes in the engine computer. I would start checking that first.
If the computer fails to get a signal from the speed sensor the transmission won't know when to shift.

The speedometer in my 2005 mustang stop working what could be wrong... peter


Most of the time when the speedometer stopps the odometer stopps too it it has the transmission may have troble ( if it's automatic as the speedsenser helps the trans shift as the computer shifts the trans too. the check engine light should be on also if it's not and the odometer is still working the problem is in the speedometer itself and the unit can be shipped off though your ford dealer for repair but I woould'nt do that till the speedometer has been removed unplugged and replugged in to see if it's just a bad connection. The speed senser can fail too but you will have these other problems tha I mentioned. The senser is on the side of the transmission nesr the place the drive shaft is connected to the transmission. If the automatic transmission shifts normally and the check engine lightisn't on the senser is likly to be good.

Speedometer drops to zero while moving and then


The Vehicle Speed Sensor located on the Transmission is malfunctioning or the connection is malfunctioning.
It is very easily removed and replaced.
The Vehicle Speed Sensor sends vital information for the Transmission to properly Shift. Because yours is malfunctioning, this lack of information is causing shifting problems.
I do not know if you have a Mechanical or Electrical (Gauges or Digital) Instrument Display. I also do not know if you have a 17 or 19 bolt transmission pan, nor what type of transmission you have (AX4N or AX4S) Nor if you have a Speedometer Cable (Mechanical Instrument will have Gauges=Cable).
The best thing to do is to check the connections of the Vehicle Speed Sensor. Unplug and check both sides of the connection for corrosion/oxidation. You can also take this sensor out of the transmission and clean the interior end; reinstall and recheck operation.
If this does not fix the problem, then remove and replace this snsor.
Take the Sensor with you to the auto parts store to compare the part you receive. You should know what tansmission you have and the number of bolts on the transmission pan, and whether you have an Electronic (Digital) Instrument Panel or Mechanical (Gauges) Instrument Panel on your dash.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Speedometer wont work


Most cars have one main vehicle speed sensor (vss). The VSS in front wheel drive cars is mounted in the transmission. A gear in the tranny turns a small gear on the VSS. If a tooth of the gear on the VSS is damaged, you can get that erratic speedometer jumping like you're experiencing. A malfunctioning VSS can cause problems with shifting and with the activation of the anti-lock braking system and cruise control. Have a Transmission shop inspect your VSS and replace if necessary, if your handy with tools. you can buy the VSS and replace you self. The speed sensors on the Galant are called pulse generators and need to be replace as a set. Located outside of the transmission right on top.
Good luck!

Speedometer quick working suddenly and transmission will not shift out of first while in drive or manualy


speed sensor may be faulty and may prevent the transmission from upshifting. This will also prevent the speedometer from working. Hve the spped sensor's circuit checked, and the spped sensor itself. Replace if necessary. Hopefully this helps

Transmission and Service Engine Soon light


it might be your vehicle speed sensor. It affects your speedometer, your cruise control and your trans shift points. Also, your throttle position sensor (TPS) affects shift points.
