First check the fuse - your driver's manual will tell you which one. Most likely, a blown fuse is the cause of the problem

SOURCE: speedometer stopped working engine lght came on

Boy have I changed a bunch of these. The vehicle speed sensor is located on the tailshaft of the transfer case near where the rear driveshaft is connected. Easy replacement. Clear the code and test drive.

SOURCE: Speedometer stopped working

pretty common for the cable to break,if you get under the vehicle disconnect it from the gearbox and tug the inner cable it should not come out...if it does you know the problem....if it doesnt put a battery drill on the cable....dont start the engine but leave the ignition on a spin the drill if your speedo dont work then you need a new speedo head.....but that is very uncommon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: transfer case oil change- 1999 Land Rover Discovery II

No need for a diagram, to drain the oil, there's a drain plug on the bottom of the transfer box, under the handbrake drum. To fill, the fill plug is about in line with the centre of the handbrake drum and to the left. I think both plugs are 1/2" square. Fill to overflow with Texaco Multi-Gear 75W/90R. Takes about 2L or so.

My 2003 ford focus speedometer stops working sometimes as does the elecyric odometer- sometimes both at same time. Other gauges work fine. The odometer goes to just dashes in place of the actual mileage...


Usually if both the odometer and speedometer stop working, the problem is the speed sensor on the transmission. You should also have a trouble code in the engine computer.
If one component works but the other does not, the problem is usually the speedometer head in the dash.

My 93 chevy s10 blazer speedometer is no working is electronic i test the plug on the speed sensor and i do not get any power


not a good idea to do a voltage test on a computer component, it can result in damage to the ECM.
if only the speedometer is not working and the other gauges do work, the first place to start is the speed sensor, it is the most common issues with inoperative speedometers.

Car speedo & odometer sometimes work OK, other times not at all.


Most likely a speed sensor is going bad (most cars and truck do not use mechanical speedometer cables anymore) most sensors are located near the differential in rwd cars or near the drive shaft on the transmission. Best bet is to get a Haynes manual for your car to help locate the speed sensor. Remove it and take it to the auto parts store so you can visually compare it to the replacement. Install the new speed sensor and it should restore your speedometer and odometer.

Check the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission.

Speedometer/odometer/cruise control isn't working.


It's your speed sensor at the transfercase on the drivers side i believe. Check the wire and clip to the sensor for any break or loose contacts. 
Easy fix and is about a 30 min job to do with simple tools. Un-clip the wire conntection, remove the retainer bolt and slide and sensor out. To install just do everything in reverse and add transmisson oil if needed.

Most of the time, it's going to be the sensor. Keep in mind that there are two sensor's so make sure it's the one on the output shaft at the transfercase. The other one is closer to the front of the transmission on the same side with is the input Volosity speed sensor.
If it was your ABS sensor, you ABS light would come on in your dash.
Good luck and hope this helps
