SOURCE: vw polo 1997, speedometer

thats exactly what it is, loose grounds. don't bother getting another from a junk yard because it will most likely have the same problem or will eventually do the same thing. Took mine out soldierd the grounds at a few places and has worked ever since. Now if i could just get the stupid a/c to stay on!

SOURCE: rev counter, speedo & sometimes fuel & temp guage not working

pull the instrument cluster out and check the printed circuit and connector to it from harness, plug it in and out three or four times, this may cure the problem.

Just aquired a 2000 s type jag and the mileage odometer is not working has any body got any answers please

Yeah They unplugged it. Inside the dash. Used car dealerships do this. They don't want you to know the true mileage. That's my first guess. The other is a chip died inside of it. I worked there. I refused to do it and show someone how to do it. I tell all my employers.. Don't send the customer to me, I will not lie for you.

Speedo not working does not move

If the odometer works, but the speedometer does not, the problem is usually the speedometer. Both use the same speed sensor.

Speedo works sometimes and doesnt work sometimes?

It's unlikely you may have a loose instrument cluster connector unless someone was previously working around that area behind it. If no activity before hand then I'm guessing you may have a deteriorating instrument cluster that needs replacing. You can find people selling in ebay (lower price) or directly from the dealer.

1995 mazda 626 glx speedometer and mileage counter not working. Rev counter works though. Does it have a cable problem or sensory

Not to sure, but i think its cable. Loosen the nut that holds the cable to the speedo drive on the gearbox. check if the inner cable is broken.

Speedometer not working

speedometer get speed signal from ABS. ABS and DSC are two functionality in same ECU. 
You shall read faults from ABS/DSC ECU.
Most frequently, there are problems with speed sensors on wheels.
With ignition on, you shall measure voltage on both wires (- pole of voltmeter shall be connected on vehicle ground). You will see one sensor without voltage supply. This will sensor with problem. you can, for check, change sensors on same axle (left and right). 
Switch ignition off, and on. 
If voltage supply missing will go on another side (with faulty sensor), you will be sure that is problem is sensor.
