SOURCE: The speedometer in my 2002

Sounds like a broken speedometer cable. The bounce around erratically, because the cable is still connected under the hood and still spinning. Even though its broken the two ends make contact and still causes some movement of the speedometer.

Usually runs from the transmission through the firewall and into the back of the gauge cluster.

SOURCE: My speedometer isn't working on Jeep Grand Cherokee, the hands aren't spinning and is beneath the rubber peg

Disconnect the posative terminal then touch the terminal to the posative a few times quickly it will reset your odometer needle to above the resting pin. This happens because you moved your posative terminal and the needles spun around and sat on the wrong side of the pin.

What is the function of the speed sensor?


The speed sensor would be a likely suspect.
It takes the place of the speedo cable going from the transmission to the speedometer.

The speedometer in my 2002 chevy prizm stopped working. From what I can tell that is the only issue. I'm not sure if it is a fuse or a relay or something different altogether. It does tend to just...

I have a 2000 chevy prizm, and a couple times a day it will die. When I put it into reverse and then drive it will die and I have to restart it. Is that a sign of the transmission going out or what???


Usually when a transmission is going out, it will be slipping, not cause your car to stall. Sounds like you have an idle air control motor that isn't working properly, or maybe a dirty throttle body.

Were is the thing for the speedometer for the 1999 geo prizm


If there is not a cable going to the speedometer from the transmission then it has a VSS (Elecdtronic Vehicle speed sensor) attached to the speedometer.

Can you use a drivers side mirror from a 1995 Geo Prizm on a 2001 Chevy Prizm?


I tried to look up the part numbers, but I couldn't find anything on AllData. You could just try calling your Chevy/GM dealership and asking - they'll give you a definite answer.

I HAVE A 1994 GEO PRISM 1.6L THE SPEEDOMETER DOESNT WORK , I REPLACED THE CLUSTER AND THE SENSOR THE SPEEDOMETER REACHES 35MPH AND THATS IT ANY SUGGESTIONS.


I've had a similar problem with my '94 prizm. I had to replace the instrument cluster about seven or eight years ago because the speedometer quit working. After replacing with a used instrument cluster it's been working fine till now. However, the problem is back again....so I'm looking for another used one. There is definately a weakness in this speedometer design when the mileage on the car gets high. Your problem is different since you replaced both the sensor and the speedometer and it still doesn't work. Chances are, you got a speedometer that didn't work to begin with. I would try another used one.
