Question about 1994 Ford Escort

1 Answer

My speedo will not register kilometers.

My car is a Ford Falcon ED GLI sedan1994. Fuel level, speed, and temperature indicators work ok. After having reset the trip counter the kilometers no longer register. I have replaced the cluster with one I brought from a wreckers, but this did not work either. This one could also be faulty. It appears the trigger source is a pulse generator, as no mechanical connection is there. Could you tell me where the sensor is located. Iam reluctant to pull the cluster apart as the clear plastic cover seems to be glued together making removal difficult. If this is the only possibility I will practise on the wreckers cluster first.
Thank you Errol.

If this happened just after resetting, then the speedo gauge on instrument cluster is probably faulty.

When this problem happens you start checking the speed sender, then undo instrument cluster and check speed sender connector and voltages to instruments. If wiring are ok, then you replace the gauge.
In your case it is most likely the gauge.

I have a 1983 Ford Falcon XE. The speedomoter


You most likely have a faulty speedometer transducer, or loose/poor connections to this unit.
The unit is generally unrepairable - replacement required.
The transducer unit is mounted on the gearbox at the tailshaft drive output.

If its just the speedo failing and the rev counter works ok, its likely to be the speed sensor which is on the gearbox. This will have to be removed as soon as possible to avoid engine damage! Expect to pay about £30-40 not £128 like some have paid from a Ford dealer.

The speed sensor as well as talking to the speedo to say how fast youre doing also talks to the fuel pump and adjusts the amount of fuel to send to the engine according to the speed your doing. So, if it thinks youre doing 0mph, it will supply a minimum amount of fuel and is likely to stall when slowing down. You might notice a lack of power whilst the speedo is failing as its starving the engine of fuel, causing it to run a lean mixture, which also burns hotter and could overheat and damage the engine.
