Speedometer won't come on

You almost certainly have a bad speedo cable. You could have a broken speedometer, but that is like seeing hoofprints and assuming a zebra is near. Speedo cables die all the time, and your car has a mechanical speedometer which uses a cable - like a brake or shifter cable on a bicycle, but the inner part rotates instead of moves back and forth.

Repair kits cost only a few bucks, but may or may not fix the problem.

New speedo cables should be available at your favorite local auto parts store. If not, you can remove it (or have someone remove it) and take it to a speedometer repair shop - most bigger cities have at least one.

Speedometer needle wildly fluctuates at all speeds, speedometer cable checks fine

take the cable out of its housing and grease it, take it all the way out and grease it as you put it back in, that should fix it. if not the speedometer head may be bad, but when they go bad usually its noisy behind the speedometer.

My speedometer keeps jumpin to zero then it will come back to normal then it will do it again and sometimes stay on zero for a long time until service engine light comes on

The mechanic should check the speedometer because of it is malfunctioning .And also the speedometer cable . If the speedometer is worn out or destroyed then replace it but if malfunctioning and can be repaired then repair it.The speedometer cable if it is disconnected then reconnect it but if cut or destroyed replace it.The service engine light will light on because of there is a problem in the service part of the engine.

Speedometor went out.

The mechanic should check the if it is worn out or destroyed . if worn out or destroyed it should be replace. You have to check the speedometer cable if it is still connected if not reconnect the speedometer cable.Because of the speedometer cable is disconnected then the speedometer will run out or it will not work.But then if the cable is connected and it don't run then the speedometer is worn out or destroyed that's why you have to replace it or repair it.

Noisy speedometer

Your speedometer cable is getting ready to fail. I believe the replacement will need white lithium lubricate grease. Ask the store clerk.

1988 Dodge D150 Erratic Speedometer

Unscrew the speedometer cable from the back of the gauge and from the transmission, take the cable out of the sheath, clean it off with carb or brake cleaner, oil it and put it back in. If that doesn't do it, replace cable assembly. If that doesn't do it, pull the speedometer gear out of the transmission and check for wear. Replace if needed.

Noisy speedometer

The click you are hearing might be a dry speedometer cable. Applying grease to the inner cable will most likely help this problem. The problem is getting to the cable behind the speedometer/dash panel. You can also get to the cable from under the truck. if you crawl under the truck and look at the smaller end of the transmission, you will see the cable screwed into the tail piece of the transmission. Remove the cable from the transmission and pull the inner cable out of the outer cable. The inner cable is what spins and causes the speedometer to turn. Take regular wheel bearing grease in the palm of your hand and slid the inner cable through the grease then put the inner cable back in the outer cable. When the inner cable gets to the back of the speedometer, you will have to slowly turn the cable and give a slight pressure inward to seat the inner cable into the speedometer.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck
