This sounds like it could possibly be a short under the dash. I would check all the wiring harnesses under the dash. Have you reset the main computer to see if this will solve a code issue? I was told that the computer can cause communication problems. You remove the neutral cable from the battery first then the hot side. Leave off for a few minutes and then replace the battery cables. Good luck, I have done a lot to my own ranger as well.

Why ford escort wagon 98 odometer not workind, speedometer OK?


If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the problem is inside the speedometer. Probably a stripped gear.

Transmission speed sensor


You could have a faulty speedometer/odometer combination meter causing a false Vehicle Speed Sensor error.
My 1998 Sienna had the following symptoms:
- Speedometer and odometer failed intermittently
- The check engine light would come on and I would get a p0500 code in the OBDII.
- The cruise control would stop working at the same time the speedometer failed.
There is a speed sensor in each one of the tires and they feed the speed information to the ABS ECU. From the ABS ECU the speed signal goes to the speedometer/odometer combination meter, and from there it goes to the Engine Control Module and to the Cruise Control ECU. I could see a signal coming into the speedometer/odometer, but no signal going out. Replacing the speedometer/odometer combination meter fixed the problem.

Cadillac catera 01' odometer and trip meter stopped working at exactly 73,200 miles - everything else in the gauge cluster still works.


this sounds like a bad speedometer cluster, you stated everything else works so i assume the speedometer is working and just the odometer and trip stopped working and so the speedometer will need replacing. good day.

1992 22re standard transmission toyota pickup truck speedometer, odometer and milage meter stopped working How do I fix it.


It sounds like the cluster is gone bad if everything is not working. Usually, if just the speedometer isn't working then it's the speed sensor on the transmission that has gone bad. But I think you have a cluster that has just died. Check on EBAY for a used cluster and ask them to roll the mileage to what is on your vehicle now.

Speedometer stopped working while driving - no longer registers


This has happened on our van multiple times. Through some internet searches I have found a solution that works.

Go to your van and, with the ignition off, press and hold the trip reset button. You will see 'Sof' and perhaps some diagnostic test numbers will show up on odometer; the unit will perform a self-test, and the system will do a reset and should it should operate normally.

Cheers!

The odometer/milage counter stopped working.


You need to replace the VSS or vehicle speed sensor. Located on LH, lefthand rear of transmission.
