No such thing. There are trailing and leading ignitors which are on the distributer.
Speedo cable goes from gauge to transmission left aft. near the crossmember.

Why is speedometer sticking?


if the odometer does not stick, watch carefully , the 1/10s digit.
drive slow, no bumps when it sticks and watch ODOMeter
if odometer dont stick the needle side is, as all do this old.
for 90s cars, vast numbers stick and more every day
as owners hedge , gee $200 fix .or more.......
get a GPS speedo and use that, or glue on a cell phone holder
and use a free app, (GPS speed) to see speed.
there you go, all choices.
the cable has 2 ends.
head end if dead, the speedo and odometer stall.
the other end, has gear to trans tail shaft,
so it measures actually road wheel RPM and converts that to speed.
the cable can be broken on both end or the middle.
the bottom end can fail strip out or its gear go bad.
fixed them all, every which way but loose.
easy no? easypeasy-japaneezey
if the odometer freezes too, that means the cable end is bad.850403f4-cfb0-4822-8bea-bd0bef80f062.jpg

How do i fix my odometer not working


speedo and odometer dead on old cars is a bad cable
or if at transmission end, it dont spin as you spin rear wheels raised.
the tail shaft of trans spins and 2 funky plastic gears spin there
and then the cable, must spin, if not its busted, and would be obvious why, if you look.

I own a 2000 For F250 and my odometer does not work at all. Could it be a fuse or a connection?


If memory serves me, you have a standard /mechanical odometer, ( not a digital ), if so, I don't believe it has a fuse.

It is a hard cable that runs from an inlet on your transmission, ( with gears that connect ), up and through the firewall behind your instrument cluster and connects directly to your odometer on the back side. This end also has a gear connection. I belive the part is just called an odometer cable.

Sometimes when repair work is done in either of these areas the person doing the work can fail to completely secure the reconnect the ends.

Speed odmeter does not work - how to repair


Most cars of 98 vintage will use a square section cable drive cable to deliver rotational information from the side of the transmission final drive to the odometer. Check the speedo cable connection to the transmission, the end of the cable sleeve has a flange that is held into a recess on the side of the transmission by a circlip. The square section cable sticks out of the end of the flanged sleeve and engages with a square socket within the transmission. A similar arrangement is found on the rear of the odometer except the sleeve is usually attached by a threaded circular nut. Make sure the ends are attached.

Odometer doesn't move and RPM is showing while engine is on.


LOL! SIMPLE STUFF! FIRST FIGURE OUT IF YOUR CAR HAS AN ELECTRIC SPEEDOMETER OR CABLE DRIVEN ONE. THE ODOMETER IS USUALLY PART OF THE SPEEDOMETER SO IF THE CABLE IS BUSTED OR THE ELECTRICAL CURRENT TO IT HAS FAILED? IT WON'T WORK AT ALL. I BELIEVE A 1990 HAS A CABLE DRIVEN ONE SO JUST TRY REPLACEING THAT CABLE FIRST. U CAN GET IT AT ADVANCED OR AUTOZONE OR A DEALER IF U WANNA PAY OUT THE NOSE.....UR CHOICE.

Speedometer, tachometer, fuel, and temp gauge not working


Take out the pc board and examine the copper traces. On my '94 Jetta I found one corroded trace that disabled the the same functions. I had to solder a wire to fix the connection. Good luck.
