Hi i have a 1995 ford mustang 3.8 v6 5 speed my trip meter doesnt work ive had the instrument cluster replaced and still dont work odometer and tach work just not the trip how to fix thanks


Fords in that era are notorious for broken plastic gears in the assembly. If the Speedometer works and the odometer works but the trip odometer does not work, you can still have a broken or stripped plastic gear. They are very small and cost about $25 but they are a pain to replace. You can send your cluster off to have it repaired by a reputable shop. Just Google instrument cluster repair.

My 97 mitsuibishi galant's speedometer works but not but odometer. it seems as if it is stuck but it wont move at all. please help


Probably need to replace the dash cluster that contains the odometer mechanism. The speed, or mph is controlled by a cable from transmission to the dash cluster. The odometer or miles put on the car runs off the cable through a series of small gears behind the cluster. There maybe a broken plastic gear or something has falling off the car behind the cluster (like a screw or nut) and has caused a blockage on the small gears.

Need to replace odometer cable


A broken cable will have neither the odometer or the speedometer working. If your speedometer is working, then the odometer gears in the dash have stripped or come loose, and should be replaced. If the cable needs replacing, pull the cluster out of the dash and unclip the cable end from the speedometer, and unscrew the bottom fitting of cable from the transaxle.

How to fix my odometer in 1991 plymouth acclaim


If the speedometer is working but not the odometer it's in the speedometer it's self. replacing the speedometer cluster is the easiest their available on ebay or your local salvage yard.
what happens is the trip odometer wears and sticks, theres a small motor on a circuit board with a plastic sun gear, inside the speedometer housing. it drives both the odometer and the trip odo
the teeth strip off the sun gear and odometer stops.

Speedometer not working


Check the gear very carefully that goes on the end at the transmission.It is plastic,and retained with a metal spring clip.The plastic can become "applecored" where as it doesnt make contact with the drive teeth on the transmission output shaft.If the gear is in order,the speedo cable operates correctly,and checks out ok,then it is likely a bad speedo head in the dash.Later model Ford trucks all used a PSOM (programmable,speedomoeter,odometer module) that was known to be somewhat problematic,but i think your year Ford is too early to have a PSOM.
