Speedometers are located in the instrument panel in the dash and is what you watch to know how fast you are going. It is connected either by a cable from the transmission or a wire harness from the transmission

My 97 volvo was in an accident before i bought it and my speedometer works but my odometer doesn't what or where should i begin looking to fix it

The speedometer works from the speed sensor (top of transmission casing, near engine. The Odometer must run from a cable from the transmission housing toward the firewall and the instrument cluster. The cable is either disconnected, broken or worn. You need the disconnect it and turn it with a drill to see if it works.
Source : I had a mazda where the cable became all rounded up where it connects into the transmission, I had to change the odometer cable. I did however change the speed sensor on my 94 850.

How to fix the speedometer and odometer

a cable will run through your firewall into the rear of your dash it should connect to either the top or side of your gearbox, it has a cog on the end that clicks over the speed and odometer, id say its worn or broken, you will need to replace it.

Speed odometer will not work

Your accord has a speed sensor located behind the transmission closes to the firewall. This fault should of gave you a check engine light, if it does try to get that code to be more exact.

My speed ometer and odometer dont work also my driver information

You;ll want to look for a cable that runs from the transmission into the firewall, this usually controls the speedometer and odometer, depending on the configuration. If it is an analog odometer/speedometer, this is most likely where your problem is. The other alternative to this is a speed sensor gear that meshes with the main ring gear in the transmission which drives this cable. If you have no experience with transmissions, changing the speed sensor gear would probably better be left to a mechanic. I have seen many of these cables wear, and develop rust, then your driving along, and they break in half, since the cable actually spins inside a plastic sleeve.

My 1993 honda civic speedometer and odometer do not work, how can I fix the problem?

Check the cables and connector for the speed sensor. It's located on the transmission towards the firewall. The connector has three pins on it. I just had to replace mine, went to the junkyard and paid $3 for the connector, because it was corroded. If the cables are clean and OK then replace the speed sensor. It ranges in price from $65 to $105.

Odometer not working

I had the same problem with my '94 Sl2. You have to take out your gages and send them in to get repaired. It is a little wheel where the odometer is that isn't working. The odometer is a speed rated so it is only activated by your car computer.
