Speedometer is not working, but tachometer is and no lit up needles

We have replaced the VSS already and still no working speedometer. The guage needles are also not lit up. The other guages in the cluster are working, although they still have no lit up needles. Do we need to change out the whole cluster for this?

How do i fix the speedometer needle when it doesnt move from below zero?


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

I have a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer with a malfunctioning tachometer and speedometer. What is the likely part I need to replace?


Sounds like a bad speedometer sensor. Usually located on the transmission. The only way to fix the speedometer is to replace the sensor.
The Variable Speed Sensor (VSS) has failed. You will have to get it replaced. Both are driven by an electrical signal sent to the cars computer by the VSS, and converted to SPEED, and DISTANCE driven.

Speedometer of 2003 dodge neon does not work and gas gauge is jumpy. replaced 2 input and output vss sensors and still won't work. no codes show on scanner


some of these have had problems with the dash assembly causing alot of problems with gauges and lights and speedometers.if there are no codes in the computer and weren`t any before you replaced the vss sensors then you spent money you didn`t need to.

Speedometer and tachometer quit working


Sounds like vehicle speed sensor (VSS). But before you try to fix this on your own I recommend taking it to transmission shop and see what they say. The VSS on this car is a pain to get to on your back.

1998 Honda Civic speedometer nervous on the red light


?? Does it move on the road ? You could have a worn out CV joint that allows the transmission to free-wheel. If that is the case, replace immediatly, or the transmission differential will fail.
