Question about Cars & Trucks
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.
