You could also try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. My 328i had a similar problem and every now and then I would have to disconnect and reconnect the battery to get the speedometer and odometer working again.

More then likely it is the speed sensor located in the rear axel it may just need to be removed and cleaned or could be bad.could also be a broken gear in the speedo itself .get a chilton or bently repair manual from a parts store or book store for help with the fuses and more

If they disconnect the battery on a 2001 bmw x5 does that interfere with the speedometer


All is controlled by the computer. When you disconnect the battery for a period of time, after reconnect the computer will reset. Nothing works without the computer telling it to.

96 Accord VSS or Speedometer Head?


The "needle at 20MPH" is a sure-fire indicator -- it's the speedometer head. This is a common problem in this year.

I haven't found a fix other than replacing the speedometer head, sorry.

Bad vehicle speed sensor. Or bad speedometer head. The speedometer on that vehicle is NOT cable driven.

BMW abs light and speedometer not working


I would replace the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) at the transmission 1st, also who advised the PCM (computer) was bad? a Jag dealer? I think they are guessing on that, computers rarely fail, maybe 2% of the time if that.

Speedometer not working


Most likely a bad DSC control unit. Natorius to fail internally on this vehicle.

Take it to the dealer to get programmed correctly after replacement.

Speedometer, RPM, ABS, and Brake light


It's not the fuse. You need to jump start the diagnostic cable. First you need a battery of 9v and short the + and - terminal to the diagnostic cable. Then you will see smoke. After that it should work fine.
