Sounds like a loose connection on insterment cluster. or a dead spot on printed circute, either way dash will have to come apart to fix.

My 2003 ford focus speedometer stops working sometimes as does the elecyric odometer- sometimes both at same time. Other gauges work fine. The odometer goes to just dashes in place of the actual mileage...


Usually if both the odometer and speedometer stop working, the problem is the speed sensor on the transmission. You should also have a trouble code in the engine computer.
If one component works but the other does not, the problem is usually the speedometer head in the dash.

Dash and radio lights don't work at night. They are on during the day. 2003 Chev Impala. Have checked all the fuses.


The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on.
If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord DX that has a speedometer problem. I replaced the speed sensor and that was not it. The speedometer works sometimes and then goes out. It has been doing this for three years. ...


We had the same problem with our 94 DX. It turned out to be a bad connection in the instrument cluster connector to harness connector . Try hitting the top of the dash while driving when the speedometer is not working and see if it starts to work while you're hitting the dash . If it does , you probably have the same problem we did . I pulled the instrument cluster and disconnected the harness and I bent the connector terminals with a small screwdriver so it would make a better connection . It worked .

Speedometer stopped working.


The speed sensors will not fix it. This is something that these cars will do in hot weather. The instrument cluster need to be removed and the contacts from the printed circuit to the connector need to be cleaned. Over time they will lose contact and affect the fuel gauge or speedometer. You may have to replace the speedo cluster. Sometimes if you hit the dash just above the fuel gauge it will start working too. Been there done that, fixed mine as the printed circuit was coming apart at the harness connector.

Speedometer loser power for a second


the dash clusters in the 03 -07 chevy 1500-6500 trucks have issues with their motors that are in the cluster. they work then don't, stick, jam, reset, etc. GM has a recall on these if your truck is privately owned and under 125000 KMs, Just contact the dealer to start and ask if you truck is included in this recall. If it isn't then you might want to find someone to repair it. we repair these unit often. good luck to you

1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager-sometimes the speedometer, gas gauge, etc stops working. sometimes hitting the top dash a couple times it may come back on, if the abs light stays lit i know to look at the...


It can be several things. Te simple one is that the connector behind the cluster is loose. The other is the circut board that makes up the cluster is going bad. Try disconnecting the cluster and re connecting. If this does not work, try replacing it with a sed one from a salvage yard or from ebay.
