I would start with checking the VSS (Vehicle speed sensor) Usually mounted underneath car at the back of the transmission area.

SOURCE: 2004 GMC Denali speedometer needle stops

All Chevy and GMC trucks (pick-ups, Tahoes, Yukons, Suburbans etc.) during the years 2002-2004 had issues with the IPC (instrument panel clusters). The would be erratic, and sometimes stick at a certain speed and not move, or occasionally work then stop at a speed, then jump to the next speed. It is a common problem. Unfortunately the only fix is to replace the IPC, and have it reprogrammed at a dealership, or repair facility capable of programming. The IPC is actually a module, and communicates on the data line with other computers. The mileage will also need to be reprogrammed into the new IPC.

SOURCE: odometer/speedometer cable malfunction

Sounds like you may have a defective instrument cluster.You will have to replace the cluster or have it repaired.Dorman Products have replacement clusters.

SOURCE: 1997 Geo Metro speedometer and odometer do not work

Let me guess, it goes up to about 30, stays there, and if you go faster (past what would be the halfway point of your speedometer) it starts dropping below 30. It sounds like the type of speedometer that uses two magnetic cores at 90 degrees to each other, and one has gone out.

Troubleshooting and repair should be similar to this: http://www.fieros.de/en/articles/speedo.html

no make or model or year so here is a guess
if it is a cable driven speedo --replace the inner cable
if it is an automatic ---replace the VSS on a later car or the sender unit on an earlier model

206 peugeot total distance recorder not working


In this model, the gearbox should be fitted with speed sensor, as it provides the info of vehicle speed to the instrument panel(dashboard) by means of speedometer and the total distance covered. So, does the speedometer work proberly, does the needle move correctly? If yes, you have to change the instrument panel. if the answer is no, then the speed sensor is not working, either the sensor itself or one of its wires is broken. Notice that this sensor is a hall-effect type, which means that there are 3 pins on the sensor , 1st is 12V supply, 2nd is 0V (earth) 3rd is a signal wire that transfers signal to the points I mentioned above.

While driving, The speedometer needle sometimes doesn't move from zero.


IS this a Chevrolet? What year?

There is a known problem with the Instrument Clusters and you have to replace the Stepper Motors to get it to work correctly..

This is true for most Makes and Models but Especially in GM Products I will only rebuild a Cluster with a X27.168 Stepper Motor

Speedometer is at 50 MPH when stopped


Try this. Turn the key on, do not start the vehicle. Absence the needle on the speedo. It should move down and then back up. Before it moves back up turn off the key. Repeat this until the needle is at zero. Then start the vehicle. If the needle goes back to a spot other than zero, you may have to take it for a quick drive, than the speedo head is likely bad. This is a pretty common an known issue for gm's. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

What do you mean cluster contacts bad !Whats the solution?


Remove the speedometer head unit, and check the soldered joints on the back. It's a common problem with these and some Chrysler products. "Randomly" is when the crack closes and makes contact, like if you hit the top of the dash and it starts working again. The speedometer head cluster.

I have 03 lancer es with a code of po506 any suggestions


There may be a vacuum leak; an restriction in the intake or exhaust; faulty PCV valve; bad or dirty throttle body; internal engine problem; or a failed PCM
This code is usually triggered on vehicles with electronic throttle controls instead of throttle cables. This code is more of an informational code and there should be other codes that show up to narrow down what the issue is
