My speedometer stopped working in my XK8 jaguar. first intermittently. worked when cold out side


People on the Jaguar Forums say a poor ground (earth ) connection can cause this symptom. A block of relays control the instrument panel including the speedometer. a corroded or intermittently connected ground. could be it. cold corroded connector would conduct better than a hot one.

Or the relay could be defective.

The speedometer bounces and sometimes does'nt work at all, and odometer hasn't changed sametime


Right off the bat it sounds like a broken speedometer cable. As the cable spins from the gearing of the transmission it is clicking against the broken part of the cable running to the speedometer gauge. The frictional clicking is what's causing your needle to bounce around. Since the cable is probably broken and cannot spin long enough to move the odometer numbers. Raise your vehicle safely and disconnect the speedometer from the transmission. then see if you can pull the cable out of the housing. If only a portion of the cable comes out, then that should answer your question. Be careful when you disconnect the speedometer cable from the transmission as not to lose any small pieces that cause the drive mechanism to work.

Sppeedometer works intermittantly


If the vehicle speed sensor was the cause you would have a check engine light and the transmission would have sifting issues into overdrive, I would think you just have a failing tachometer stepper motor (tiny DC motor) that drives the needle..

Mileage does not to work on the speedometer (97 850 T5)


Hi
most likely the mechanism has failed at the back of the instrument panel, Its not digital is it? just normal type. also sometimes the speedo cable pull back slightly into the dash the speed will still show but if it is not tight up against the back panel then sometimes the miles will not turn. You will have to remove the clocks to be sure.

All the gauges seem to work except the speedometer


On my 1999 Cirrus the speedometer would work sometimes and other times not. Now not at all. The cruise control always works though. I have a shop manual and found that the instrument cluster has self diagnostics. Press in the digital odometer button and hold it. Then turn the ignition on without starting. The needles will then move to different positions, then each indicator light will come on one at a time. If the speedometer needle doesn't move during diagnostics, then you need to replace the circuit board that attaches to the back of the cluster. You can order one for just over $200 at http://www.discountmoparparts.net.

Speedometer Stops


Most cars Speedometer cable connect to one of the front wheels, but you said your speedometer sometimes stop then your steering wheel will go stiff, I think you should fix or change your speedometer cable, maybe the cable broken inside. Fix it as soon as possible for your safety.

Speedometer cable has two parts, one is outside cable, mounted and connect to both speedometer and wheel.

The other one is an inside steel cable, outside cable protects the inside cable, because the inside cable turns as soon as you move the car. It is directly connect to the wheel gears and the speedometer inside.

If your car has speedometer cable, I think you need check it right away.

Your steering wheel sometimes stiff, you also need to check your power steering fluid level, sometimes cause this kind problem.

Hope this can help you and if you have more questions, please use whatever the Fixya allowed, contact me to discuss this matter and others. Thank you.
