Both the speedo meter and the odometer, both?
the 96 is cable driven , if both die, the cable is broken
or the gear down below at transmission is stripped out
or the key at end of said cable to gear, is snapped off.
a simple inspection find out which part is bad
or turn the cable (detached) CCW (counter clock wise) and see if
the speedo works now. I use a drill to do that. CCW direct.
easy huh>?

We have a CMC 2011 truck that we need a speed drive sender unit. Nothing available. Is there any other vehicle's sender that we can use.


What are you talking about ? a VSS - vehicle speed sensor ! What make truck ? A GMC ? What model ? And what makes you think you need one ? Speedometer not working , vehicle doesn't shift right ? Have you had it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes ?

I cant find the speedometer cable


Don't remember when it was done, but there is no cable after a certain year, it went all electronic. if yours does have a cable, in would be connected to the speed sensor in the transmission and through the firewall to the speedometer. if you have a V6 the sensor is located on top of trans to the right of the vehicle.

Speedometer not working on my 2002 jeep liberty.


The routing of the speed sensor wires is located on the rear differential. The problem is that they rub on the E-brake cable and once the wire is exposed they short and the speedometer and any other options running off the speed sensor quit working and that includes the transmission shift points and can cause the torque converter to not unlock and cause stalls. We went to a dealer and got the replacement kit for $32.00. He also took the time to encase the wires in a plastic tubing to avoid this problem again.

My speedometer bounces when i hit 45 miles an hour, what do i need to do?


Hi.

Problem is usually the speed sender failing when speed gets too high. In some case the speed gauge itself is damaged. In Mercury the speed sender is located in the transmission. The part is difficult to test without professional equipment. Repair is done replacing the speed sender. If that does not fix the problem, work on the instrument panel speedo.

Here location of the speed sender:

Hi. My ford escort 97 lx wagon transmission is not shifting anymore it is stuck in first gear(althought if i put it in neutral while driving and switch back to drive it picks up for a few seconds...) and...


My brothers 2000 ford ranger the fuse went out to the speed sensor. I change the speed sensor because it did not shift out of 1st gear and the speedometer stopped working. I then found out the fuse was missing in the fuse panel. My brother could not tell where the fuse went but when I put a fuse in it started shifting and the speedometer started working. everything was good. You should have a code if it is the speed sensor.

Speedometer don,t work


Depending on whether your speedo is mechanical (uses a cable), or electronic (uses an electrical wire to carry the signal from the sender), I would look it (what's in between the speedo and trans speed sender) before replacing the instrument panel. A good service manual that includes a dash wiring diagram should help trouble shoot this problem.
Good luck.
