1989 toyota corolla 1.6 gl, where can i find the terminal for speedometer in the engine bay..


Output speed sensor usually located in transmission usually close to where axles go into transmission. The sensor can be identified by having 8 mm headed bolt that hold the sensor in. These speed sensors just don't quit one day. A wire is usually the culprit or debris on magnet of sensor or physically broken sensor. If speedometer intermittently starts working then its always a wire with bad connection.

2005 S Isuzu Ascender Speedometer niddle moved all the way to the right of gage and as not moved.


If the odometer is working correctly, the problem is inside the speedometer head.
The speed sensor would be on the side of the transmission if the odometer is not working.

I have a 2005 lexus rx330. the odometor stopped working. how do I fix it?


check and see if your cruise control still works your problem probably lays with in a speed sensor you have an output vehicle speed sensor that can cause the problem and i say a vehicle speed sensor because you didnt say anything in reference to having a abs ight on on your dash if you do have that as well you could possibly need a wheel speed sensor as well but i would lean more towards vehicle speed sensor output sensor

The speedometer on my 89 cutlass supreme is off by 10 to 20 mph. Going 30 speedometer states 45. 60 states 80 and so on. The cruise control will not work either. Already tried the vehicle speed sensor on...


If one exists, check the cable going from the tranny to the back of your dashboard. The gauge cluster might be going bad, or if you don't have stock rims/tires, that will definitely cause it.

Tach and speedometer don't work transmission won't shift , I had blew a fuse with the a trailer not being wired correctly. Checked all fuses in fuse boxs. Service light is on says speed sencor. But had no...


The speed sensor is necessary to tell your transmission when and if to shift. The PCM uses the information from it, plus the way your vehicle is accelerating to determine shifting, and if the sensor went out, or the PCM went bad, then you'll lose your transmission shifting. You can shift it manually though. There is also a fuse under the hood that provides the transmission with power, and of course, if any wiring or connections are bad, will cause the same problem. Hope this is was you're looking for.

Check first if the they can do something about the sensor without replacing it but if they need to replace it do so and I can assure you it will work.
