Remove the drive gear from the transmission, chances are it stripped because the cable was binding.

My speedometer quit working and i replaced it and it still doesnt work \

check the connection that is on the transmission if you have a real cable then check the end to make sure the cable connections are not broke. look at the speedometer then spin the cable with your fingers the speedometer should bounce if not then cable is broke also check the ends usuall the end by the trans gets stripped out. a speed sensor will also make the meter not work if you have that kind of vehical.

Why would speedometer needle bounce

The needle bounce may be related to the cable, it may be broken or just needs lube.
Remove the speedometer cable, locate the connection at the transmission and unscrew it, then locate the connection at the rear of the speedometer, remove the cable from the car, pull cable out of plastic housing and see if it comes out in two parts, if it does then cable needs replacing.
You will see the cable has two ends, is the cable is broke replace it, a broken cable will sometimes spin and not spin causing needle to jump, also a binding cable will do the same, if cable is good then spray wd40 in to cable and spin by hand. note; if cable is binding you will need to work it so it does not break. good day

Speedometer not working

Given that the new cable was properly installed (it may not have been), the problem is either the speedometer gear in the transmission or the speedometer itself.

If the old cable was indeed broken, I'd first check the new cable to make sure it's properly installed.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX sedan and the speedometer just stopped working. My mechanic just put in a transmission that he bought from a junk yard. How do i fix this problem?

I have a 99 accord and my speedometer and odometer did not work. The problem was the VSS vehicle speed sensor. The VSS is located on the transmission. Once I replaced it everything worked fine.

My speedometer guage wont work

this is a speedometer cable problem, there is a cable that goes from your transmission to what would be the back of your dash lights. Remove this cable by unscrewing it from the transmission, not from behind the speedometer. then take the wire that cable is wrapped around connect it to a power drill, spin it and see if your speedometer gives any type of a reading.
Then remove the other end of the cable, take the whole thing to either a junkyard or autoparts store, get a new one, install the new one....problem solved! :)
