The speedometer head is bad. You need to replac the speedometer head with either a new one or a used one. My choice would be a new one since this is a common problem with the nissan pick up. I have had one of my own go bad and act just like the one you have.

My electric odometer went out on my 02 ford explorer but all other lights work on my dash. How do i fix it?


You said the odometer went out, but does the speed odometer still work? How about the trip odometers? It could be the sensor went bad. Or it could be a connection to the dash. Has the dash been apart recently?

Odometer inop


the odometer gets it drive signal from the spedometer so if the spedometer is working then the only thing that can be wrong is the drive circuit from the spedometer to the odometer, the only thing you can do is replace the spedometer assembly, and now the bad news the spedometer on this car has its own computer that has to be programed to match with the other computers on the car so if you get a used or new unit you will have to take the car to GM and have the computer flashed so that it will work with all the other computers on the car.....good luck

My 93 chevy s10 blazer speedometer is no working is electronic i test the plug on the speed sensor and i do not get any power


not a good idea to do a voltage test on a computer component, it can result in damage to the ECM.
if only the speedometer is not working and the other gauges do work, the first place to start is the speed sensor, it is the most common issues with inoperative speedometers.

All instrument cluster guages inop (speedometer, odometer, fuel, temp) may click on intermittently but will not work for long (ex. clicked on last night after driving about 30 miles, worked for 4 miles and...


sounds like the instrument cluster is failing or you have a loose wire issue. The dash will need be opened up to inspect the connector for proper voltage.
Modulemaster.com can rebuild the cluster but the car will out of service for a week or 2. This is just an option over the high price the dealer will want.

The odometer and trip odometer for my 1996 ford explorer stop working. However, the speed still works. Any suggestions??


The gear in the speedometer assembly is broken causing the odometer and trip odometer to be inop. You can either buy a new speedo head or buy a gear kit from an online source (google Ford speedo odometer inop)for the kit.

It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.
