2003 Grand Marquis digital speedo only reads "0". All other displays read correctly. Could it be the speed control? If so, where exactly is it located?


The speedometer provides speed information based on a speed/distance pulse signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The VSS is mounted on the speedometer driven gear in the transmission.
or the gauge is bad .
  • The speedometer/odometer is inoperative
  • CJB fuse 14 (10A).
  • Vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test E .
PINPOINT TEST E: THE SPEEDOMETER/ODOMETER IS INOPERATIVE CAUTION: Use the correct probe adaptor(s) when making measurements. Failure to use the correct probe adaptor(s) may damage the connector.
CONDITIONS DETAILS/RESULTS/ACTIONS E1 CHECK VSS SPEED SIGNAL BETWEEN CIRCUITS 679 (GY/BK) AND CIRCUIT 676 (PK/OG)
VSS C1088
Raise the drive wheels off the ground. While rotating the driveshaft, measure the AC voltage between the VSS C1088 pin 1, circuit 679 (GY/BK), component side and the VSS C1088 pin 2, circuit 676 (PK/OG), component side.
  • Is the voltage between 1.3 volts AC to 6.1 volts AC?
Yes GO to E2 .

No CHECK and INSPECT the speedometer drive gear. INSTALL a new VSS if the speedometer drive gear is OK. TEST the system for normal operation E2 CHECK CIRCUIT 679 (GY/BK) AND CIRCUIT 676 (PK/OG) BETWEEN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AND THE VSS

I have a 2004 chevy Silverado 2500 HD and I got a odometer error message in my instrument cluster. Is this from the instrument recall from way back? Front left window switch works intermittently also.


Disconnecting the battery isn't going to change anything . You have a hard fault . The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed signal circuit from the powertrain control module (PCM). The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. IPC- instrument panel cluster ! Is the odometer inoperative ?

Volvo abs lights stays on


Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.

Odometer stopped working


IF YOUR SPEEDO IS WORKING THEN YOUR VSS IS OKAY, BAD VSS WILL STOP SPEEDO AND USALLY CAUSE HARD SHIFTING. NORMALLY ODO IS CONTROLLED BY SERVO MOTOR WHICH MAY HAVE WENT OUT. CHECK EBAY FOR REPAIR SERVICES OR SIMPLY GET A SALVAGE CLUSTER AND HAVE MILEAGE RESET
