Speedometer quit working

Hi all, My speedometer on my 2002 volkswagen jetta GLS suddenly stopped working. Also, my odometer isn't working. This could be a problem because of the laws in my state. Is there any reason why this would happen and is this going to be a costly repair?

There is no Speedometer cable on a 2002 Jetta. You have a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) I would have someone check the codes on it and see if the VSS is the problem.

This is a result of either a bad solder job at the factory or just bad solder. You can remove your gage cluster and remove and resolder the joints at the back of the 2 indicators. there are several sites on the internet that have specific instructions.

97 VW Jetta GLS, manual transmission. The speedometer stopped working & the fuel gauge is jumping around.


Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John

Tach and speedometer quit at the same time, odometer continues to work normal


you may need to replace the instrument cluster.

its likely a dry solder joint on the circuit board behind the cluster but unless you can repair it yourself its expensive to get fixed so better to just swap from a breaker.

2002 Volks. Jetta - digital display for odometer, clock, gears


Mine went blank after condensation inside windshield dripped behind the dash (sunroof drain problem). After a few months, in really dry winter weather, digital display time, gears, odometer came back. I assume water inside dash just needed time to evaporate. Sure beats $1000 to replace unit inside dash!

Odometer doesn't work, is it something i can fix?


More than likely your lead gear for your odometer is spinning on the shaft and not advancing the odometer or tripometer. You will need to remove the speedometer from the cluster to verify. once the speedometer is removed you will find a metal/gray colored gear next to the odometer digits. Take a small flat tip screw driver while holding the odometer digits in place with your finger, try and spin the gear. If the gear spins this is your problem. OdometerGears.com has the three different sizes of gear for you to fix it.
