Your speedometer assembly needs to be replaced under the recall. If you have less than 70k miles there is no charge. Check with the dealer

99 ford Taurus won't go over 35-40 mph, however speedometer reads 120 mph from start. Tranny seems fine and no check lights whatsoever.


Scan the vehicle for fault codes first. Sounds like you need to check the vehicle speed sensor signal into the speedometer. If that is ok then send the speedo head out for repair.

Speedometer gets stuck


GM used a bunch of "stepper motors" in the dash cluster in this and many other vehicles in this time that were prone to failure. Speedo, Oil pressure, Temperature, Gas gauge - you name it - they were all the same stepper motor.

You can replace them yourself for short money - but you need soldering tools and skills. It's a great time to replace dash lamps, too. Check out eBay for parts.

Broken Speedometer?


You are correct in thinking if the speed sensor fails the check engine light should be on, and you should experience problems with the transmission.
It sounds like just the speedo has failed.

1989 Honda Accord speedometer not working. What is a speedo head?


The speedo head or cluster is the part that houses the speedometer and tach, etc. now it may be the speedo cable that comes from the transmission to the speedo head that has broken. If so replace the cable and your back in business. If it is the head you can get them from your local recycle yard.
