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.

I have a 1999 Buick century. The speedometer and all other cluster panel lights up but my speedometer doesn't work. What could cause the speedometer to stop working?


it could be the vehicle speed sensor(VSS) in the transmission gone bad or the VSS transducer that converts electrical pulses to a speed reference that shows on your speedometer or you may have a speedometer head problem.

1998 T-100 Toyota cruse control will not engage. The dash indicator comes on when the switch is on but it will not engage. I have a check engine lite whose code is speed sensor. I replaced the transmisson...


The Haynes manual I have doesn't show another speed sensor either. However, if your speedometer is working then it must have either a speedometer cable or another speed sensor of some type. My 1987 Toyota Supra had a speedometer cable and the speed sensor was in back of the speedometer. It used a spinning disk attached to the cable. The disk broke and left me without cruise control. I don't know if you have a similar arrangement in addition to the transmission speed sensor.

I don't believe the cruise control will engage with a speed sensor DTC set or a faulty speed sensor. So the code must be erased even if you fixed the problem. If you erased the code after your fix and the code returned, try to determine if the speed sensor is getting the 5 volt reference voltage from the ECM. If not, then either a wiring problem or faulty ECM.
