Question about 1993 Nissan Altima

Open Question

Nissan HUD speedometer

I have a 93 Nissan Altima and the speedometer and Odometer only work after it warms up This speedometer has Heads Up Display. When it comes on everything works. I can see it start bouncing off the peg and then it goes up to the correct speed. I have been searching the web for a Heads Up Display speedometer and also for help. I did find one but the person wanted $250.00 and $40.00 shipping. I am on Social Security so I did not want to spend this much.
Thanks,
Wayne

SOURCE: Odometer Repair on a 1996 Nissan Pick-up XE

The teeth on the ODO gear are most likely stripped. Seen this a hundred times. Dealer- only repair unless you buy a used speedo head.

SOURCE: Speedometer/odometer/cruise control isn't working.

It's your speed sensor at the transfercase on the drivers side i believe. Check the wire and clip to the sensor for any break or loose contacts. 
Easy fix and is about a 30 min job to do with simple tools. Un-clip the wire conntection, remove the retainer bolt and slide and sensor out. To install just do everything in reverse and add transmisson oil if needed.

Most of the time, it's going to be the sensor. Keep in mind that there are two sensor's so make sure it's the one on the output shaft at the transfercase. The other one is closer to the front of the transmission on the same side with is the input Volosity speed sensor.
If it was your ABS sensor, you ABS light would come on in your dash.
Good luck and hope this helps

Most common is the speedometer, for you speedometer issue. As for your radio display. If the radio works but has no display, then it's a radio problem not a fuse.
