First you need go to your local parts store, buy a manual on this model pickup,and read it. The reading is to help you understand how things work together and help if you attempt the repair. Next, if the dash is electric, or digital it properly is a electric unit in that it will use a pulse type sensor to provide the speedo signal for speed input. 2. It a mechanical input if there is a cable that connect the speedo with the transmission towards the rear of the tranny, it usaully screws on it. The cable binds and breaks are most common problem, take the cable off at trans, take a drill and attach it to the cable, spin it up see if speed shown, if not then you the cable good if not broken, and there a problem in the speedo itself. If so, either get it rebuilt or by new unit. If its the electric unit, and the dash does turn on, verify by other gauge working, if so check the sensor that provides the signal.

No speedometer or cruise only, everything working

Oh you won't have cruise control if the speedo doesn't register.Either a bad speedo cable(if manual)or a bad connection or speed sensor(if electric speedo).

The car does not show the speed on the speedometer what can be the problem?

First you would have to know if your car has a speedometer cable. If it does, it may be broken. However, the meter itself could be broken as well. Now in order to diagnose which part is at fault. The speedometer cable must be removed and checked, if ok the speedometer itself might be defective. To check your speedometer you can check it without being removed by, sticking a piece of speedo cable or the complete cable into the meter. The other end of it you would have to attach it to a drill (it would be a good idea to turn it by hand first, to see in which direction it turns first before connecting the drill) and turn it on at very low speed to see if it works. if all these checks alright, the problem could be in the gear that attaches the cable to the transmission or differential. Some cars have an electronic speedo driven by a sensor that operates via a wire that will require an electric diagram and more knowledge. And usually, in those type of cars other issues will develop in regard to this problem such as trouble codes and erratic shifting
Hope, this helps you.

You may need another speedometer. The speed sensor sends a signal to both the speedo and the odometer. So if the sensor fails, both meters would stop working.
The speedo gets power from the same circuit as the warning lights.

F150 Speedometer issue

This is your speed sensor. Now i do not know if this is going to be cable driven or electrical because they used both in 95. Your local auto parts store will tell you exactly what kind is in your truck. I just changed one friday on a 94 ford escort and it was electrical. The part was around 20 dollars for the speed sensor.

1994 honda prelude vtec speedometer tach problem

Possible speed sensor. I know the speed sensors are a problem with hondas. A new speed sensor is about $200 and can be easily replaced. It bolts to the top of the transmission on the firewall side. Do NOT buy an e-bay one. They are only about $30 but are junk

Speedometer is stuck all the way around to zero and won't move

sounds like you may have several problems here, there is usually a transducer on the gearbox, this may be faulty, there is always fuses for most electrical items such as lights, the window motor may have a faulty motor or it could be the switch, try swapping switchs from a good window

2001 ford Expedition odometer reads 100mph

I used to calibrate police speedometers, The odometer by the way is the device that records how much distace you have travelled, The little numbers on the bottom of your speedo. If your speedo reads 100mph regardless of how fast you are travelling, The answer is simple you have some dirt jammed in your speedo. Check that your speedo is mechanical ie it has an armoured square ended cable that comes from the engine to the back of your speedo. Get your hand round the back of the dash and find the back of the speedo. See if you can feel an armoured cable going into the speedo, if so it will usually unscrew and let you pull the square drive inner out. This task is easier if you can first get the speedo out. It will have to come out. Then take the speedo apart without removing the pointer. A cup spins round a magnet and the pivots on the magnet sometimes get glued up. Clean with fine paint brush and parrafin. DO NOT TOUCH THE HAIRSPRING. Get diagram of dragcup speedo as it will show you all the parts. Hope this helps
