2003 Grand Marquis digital speedo only reads "0". All other displays read correctly. Could it be the speed control? If so, where exactly is it located?


The speedometer provides speed information based on a speed/distance pulse signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The VSS is mounted on the speedometer driven gear in the transmission.
or the gauge is bad .
  • The speedometer/odometer is inoperative
  • CJB fuse 14 (10A).
  • Vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test E .
PINPOINT TEST E: THE SPEEDOMETER/ODOMETER IS INOPERATIVE CAUTION: Use the correct probe adaptor(s) when making measurements. Failure to use the correct probe adaptor(s) may damage the connector.
CONDITIONS DETAILS/RESULTS/ACTIONS E1 CHECK VSS SPEED SIGNAL BETWEEN CIRCUITS 679 (GY/BK) AND CIRCUIT 676 (PK/OG)
VSS C1088
Raise the drive wheels off the ground. While rotating the driveshaft, measure the AC voltage between the VSS C1088 pin 1, circuit 679 (GY/BK), component side and the VSS C1088 pin 2, circuit 676 (PK/OG), component side.
  • Is the voltage between 1.3 volts AC to 6.1 volts AC?
Yes GO to E2 .

No CHECK and INSPECT the speedometer drive gear. INSTALL a new VSS if the speedometer drive gear is OK. TEST the system for normal operation E2 CHECK CIRCUIT 679 (GY/BK) AND CIRCUIT 676 (PK/OG) BETWEEN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AND THE VSS

My gmc terrain is showing "8" on dash where speedometer is. what does that mean?


The number 8 means that the digital display in between the speedometer and tachometer is reading your speed. It you set your display to trip odometer to trip one it will read 1, trip odometer 2 will read 2, fuel economy will read another number. and finally navigation will read 9.

I have a 1999 Volkswagen beetle 5-speed and the speedometer doesn't work please tell me what is wrong with it i changed the speed sensor and that wasn't it


check speedo meter sender . on gear box exactly on difren. between two drive shaft some coming mechanical ( small gear plastic ) remove cable and rotat littil colck and unti look to gage if moving the problem gear .if not the cable speedometer , some time when you remove it will come out tha means cable need replace . if electric replace speed sender same place .

Well i'm going 60 mph but my speedometer read 70 plus for avery mile that i travel the meter read 1 1/3 so my car is gona hit 1k if i still friving like that?


In most cars especially those older models, the speed sensor for the speedometer is located in the transmission. Check for physical wear on the cable that leads from the transmission to the back of the dashboard. If you have increased the size of the tires dramatically, the actual car speed would be slower then the speedometer. Either the components responsible for measuring speed (speed cable, dashboard, speedsensor) is damaged or tire size or transmission parts or the transmission itself was replaced.

While driving my 1.6 focus the speedometer goes to zero and the radio volume goes low. Whats up?


I can give you most of your answer and it depends on the Radio. Ford has a speed-compensated Radio that will adjust the volume of the Radio to the speed of the car. This feature means you will not have to adjust a radio down at a stoplight or when going to a drive-thru.

Then when the car speeds up and engine and road noise increase, so does the volume on the Radio. So you will not have to adjust the volume of the Radio when you drive.

You need to fix the speedometer to get the radio to work correctly. You probably have a sensor connector or the sensor itself making the problem. Go to an Autoparts store and get a sensor and it will probably work fine.

The automatic won't shift up to high or OD and speedometer quit working at the same time?


sounds like your vehicle speed sensor is broken. here is a tutorial from autozone.com




OPERATION


The vehicle speed sensor is made up of a coil mounted on the transmission and a tooth rotor mounted to the output shaft of the transmission. As each tooth nears the coil, the coil produces an AC voltage pulse. As the vehicle speed increases the number of voltage pulses per second increases.


TESTING


See Figure 1

  1. To test the VSS, backprobe the VSS terminals with a high impedance voltmeter (set at the AC voltage scale).
  2. Safely raise and support the entire vehicle using jackstands. Make absolutely sure the vehicle is stable.
  3. Start the vehicle and place it in gear.
  4. Verify that the VSS voltage increases as the drive shaft speed increases.
  5. If the VSS voltage is not as specified the VSS may be faulty.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figure 2

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the electrical connection.
  3. Unfasten the sensor retainers.
  4. Remove the sensor and gasket or O-ring.

To install:
  1. Install the sensor with a new gasket or O-ring.
  2. Fasten the sensor retainers.
  3. Engage the electrical connections.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

I recently put smaller tires on my z71 4x4 and i think my speedometer is off is to fast or to slow?


Good observation. Changing the tire size increases or decreases the number of wheel spins per mile, and that changes the speedometer reading. GM or a custom truck shop should be able to modify the speedometer drive, but most drivers just note the inaccuracy and learn to live with it.

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

Speedometer stop working where's the cable?


Your vehicle does not have a traditional speedometer cable. Instead it uses a VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) to read speed of the vehicle below is a short test to help you determine if it is the VSS that has failed.

SPEEDOMETER VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR TEST

1. Press and release trip odometer button until function number 6 appears in display window.

2. Turn a front wheel and observe display (pulses are added to number in display. Check impulse signal for speedometer vehicle speed sensor. If 7 pulses are generated per wheel revolution, vehicle speed sensor is okay.

3. If specified number of pulses are not generated, check for open in wiring harness between speed sensor and instrument cluster. Repair wiring harness if necessary. If wiring harness is okay, replace speedometer vehicle speed sensor.
