Load knoking noise coming from in side midle of dashboard near radio when over 55 mph, no other symptons


dash knocks. 2002 wrangler.

that\'s a good one but id do this.

1: kill the whole HVAC system power, (FUSE pulls) under stand how.

if this is not clear, ask or read the FSM page on HVAC.

it might be a berserk damper motor (device)

this car is TJ

using 2 persons to find noise works best and at 55 that big time danger. no? so do that, one drives. other uses a rubber hose to his

ear to find LOCATION, like in real estate, location is every thing, LOL.

its not a bad speedo cable, there is no such ani-mule on this car.

electronic end to end.



before working on any car, 96\' to now, defeat the air bags per FSM

first or get broken neck or worse at 55mph. really... RTM.

DO not ever work on cars with no FSM or find your self, playing harp.



I put my bet on HVAC

and using a real scan tool not autozoned junk, and see if you

have HVAC DTC errors.

i use a Innova 3160 and it shows them all. (so do others)

the $29 code readers are pure junk, on newer cars.

ok on 1996, but not newer cars with CAN buss or advanced electronics like ours.



SCAN IT FIRSTS ! THEN ASK QUESTIONS.

fooling around air bags at 55mph is fool hardy.

1998 plymouth voyager speedometer reads 15 over


I would suspect you have a faulty electronic speedo head, have the cluster removed and have it sent out for repair of the problem. There is no at home repair procedure for this problem, it takes special equip to repair the speedo.

1990 honda accord speedometer inaccurate


The speedometer sensors on these cars can go bad sometimes and often, and also low power steering fluid can effect their readings. Check your power steering fluid level and see if that is the cause, If not, the sensor is probably worn out a bit.

1997 Buick LeSabre speedometer, eratic operation reads faster than speed actually going, analog electronic unit. How do I repair and access it.


A reliable fix would be to send the cluster out for repair, if in fact the problem lies in the speedo head. There is a bulletin for this car that states that at 20mph the speedo can be + or - 4 mph inaccurate, and its normal operation.
I suggest first having the alternator tested. The VSS on this car produces an AC voltage signal. The alternator also produces AC voltage, which is converted to DC before it is output to the cars electrical system. If any AC voltage is leaking from the alternator, it can interfere with the VSS signal, and cause the speedo to read higher, or even show that the car is moving when sitting still.

The speedo in my 95 mustang Gt Is 10 miles an hour fast


A vehicle speed sensor that is starting to fail could cause this, or less than likely bad wiring or connections, or yes, a bad cluster could do this... But how exactly did she notice the speedometer was 10MPH fast?? There are no real accurate speedometers in vehicles (Don't get me wrong they shouldn't be off by 10MPH) but there is a 5 or so percent difference high or low in many vehicles even with stock powertrains. I've plugged in with a diagnostic scanner on many vehicles and the dash speedo shows 60MPH, but the electronic speed readout on the scanner reads as low as 55MPH or as high as 65MPH

1989 Honda Accord speedometer not working. What is a speedo head?


The speedo head or cluster is the part that houses the speedometer and tach, etc. now it may be the speedo cable that comes from the transmission to the speedo head that has broken. If so replace the cable and your back in business. If it is the head you can get them from your local recycle yard.

It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.

Speedometer goes to 0 and trans downshifts


There are 2 speed sensors on the transaxle. One is for vehicle speed and one is for trans output shaft speed. My guess is that you replaced the one for output shaft speed.
