Not sure what test you want to do. If you want to check to see if it reading correct you can use a GPS and see if they both read the same.

I have a 98 chev 1/2 ton with no tac or speedometer sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. plus when it doesn't work i have no 2nd and 3rd gear.

VSS can be bad and the 3 & 4 shift solenoid can be bad. Get a free computer test scan at any Auti Zone to confirm my findings

Replaced TH700R4 on 1988 c/ cruise control and speedometer do not work.tested vss & wiring from vss to cruise control module and from ccm to powertrain control module.both check good. Repair...

I would look at the wiring around the bellhousing first to be sure you have not pinched any wires. On that truck, behind the glove box is the PCM, and another white colored box called a DRAC. The DRAC controls the speedometer not the PCM. Look into replacing it. Also check your trans and gauge fuses. Good Luck.

How to remove a dash from a 91 chevrolet pickup truck

remove all the screws from around the dash then lower tilt wheel if it has one. pull the insert dash tword you and reach in behind it and undo the clip that holds the speedometer cable in place .. this is a snap just pull the clip forward and the speedometer cable will come free.. when putting back just push it in and it will snap in place. Also there is a wire cluster you will have to release on the back of this dash which is held in with a plastic clip which you will be able to see after getting the speedometer cable loose... just release the clip and pull the wires out from behind the dash .. thanks and holler if you need more.

91 speedometer and miles

I have a 91 Accord. When I purchased it, the speedometer did not work. I replaced the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) and the speedometer started working again. I paid $24 for the sensor on ebay. The local part stores wanted $150. It's an easy fix. It takes about 20 minutes to replace.
