Question about 1995 Plymouth Neon

1 Answer

Speedometer on 95 plymouth neon doesn't always work.

The speedometer in my 95 plymouth neon stops working sometimes, while I am driving. If I hit the dashboard it will start working again, but not always. This is getting to be a nuisance!

I have the answer!
There are two clips that the cluster connects to. Those two clips have become worn. There are two ways to resolve this. 1. replace the clips. 2. (what I did) took a sparkplug box and cut it in 4 strips long wise and folded them in half. I then inserted those strips between the dash and the clip. This pushes clip forward and creates a stable connection.

Where is the speedometer sensor


I have seen several neons with this issue. The instruments will stop working on ocassion or all together. I have found that the instrument cluster or wiring connector to the cluster can become slightly loose causing the speedometer to stop working. I would recommend putting slight inward pressure on the cluster when this happens to see if it has any effect. If the speedometer starts working I would advise turning your attention to the plug on the back side of the cluster to remove the slight movement that the plug mount allows.

Gauges in my 1998 plymouth neon stopped working when i hit a bump


Sounds like an intermittent loss of power to the instrument cluster to me. Remove the instrument cluster and inspect the electrical connectors on the back of the cluster.

Does the 96 neons have a speedometer cable??? if so how do you change it


How handy are you? Takes about an hour total to fix & no dirty hands. I had to do my own fix to my 95' neon about 3 times & on the last one I tried something different & never had a problem again, & sold it about 3 years later still working. If your up to it, I'll give you instructions. You have to pull speedo cluster out of dash , but it's pretty simple really. Let me know.

I have a 1997 Plymouth Neon. The car runs great. The lights all come on but the gauges suddenly stopped working. It was fine yesterday..could it be a fuse?


Try a couple of good thumps with fist above dash (don't laugh) where cluster gauges are, and see if it comes back on, or may when you hit a bump. I had a 95 that did it all the time until I fixed it. If a bump or thump gets it back on, let me know, I'll give you details on fixing.

Speedometer works sometimes on 95 neon


Common on those is the dash cluster connection itself, there is a plug on the back of it, that you pull off & i ended up using tweezers or needle nose pliers and just very slightly twisted or bent ends of the male spade (small) contacts on the cluster itself, one by one. re-attached everything & problem cured. If you just pull trim around the cluster, it will come off, then 3 or 4 screws and cluster will lift out of there, unplug harness, do as described & re-install. Let me know how you make out. Did it 2 or 3 times in my 95 neon & it cured it for a few years each time.
