At the back of the speedometer run something like a mechanical spring which monitor the needle movement.That spring has become faulty and the best way to fix this is to replace the speedo..There is nothing wrong with the cable.

Speedometer not registering correct speed.


Has to be calibrated on a rolling road with the correct software ,or you have the wrong size tyres fitted ,they are low profiles making the wheels go round faster in relation to the speedo calibration

Nissan Maxima speedometer reads 20 mph but actual speed is 40-50 mph, is my transmission going bad?


NO, IT'S NOT THE TRANSMISSION! SOUNDS LIKE A SPEEDOMETER PROBLEM! THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THREE THINGS! EITHER THE SPEEDOMETER, THE CABLE, OR THE SPEED SENSOR! THE SPEED SENSOR WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU A P0500 CODE ON AN OBD-II CODE READER! THE SPEED SENSOR IS ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION! SOME HAVE A SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOOKED TO THEM, AND SOME JUST HAVE A 2 WIRE PLUG THAT HOOKS TO IT!

Speedo is not accurate and the faster you go the more inaccurate it gets. It seemed to start doing this when it got cold. The needle moves back and forth at freeway speeds. There is no noise though....


Based on the age of the vehicle I would check the speed gear on the transmission for being worn or loose. If the Speedometer actually has a cable attached to it replace the cable totally. This symptom is more a sign of a worn cable than a twisted cable.

1986 Nissan 720 4x4 pickup truck. Speedometer shows faster speed then going (ie driving 10 mph; speedo shows 60 mph.


Either the gauge is bad, the cable is kinked or the speedometer connector is bad...at the tranny.

ABS light & brake light on, problems with speedo working properly


The rear wheel speed sensor is the most common problem on those trucks and will do what you are talking about. It is located at the top of the rear axle in the center. It picks up it's signal from a tone ring on the diff inside! If a tranny input or output sensor is bad then the tranny won't shift properly!

Speedometer is jumping around


The speedometer cable needs lubricating. It can be removed from the bottom where it connects to transmission, coated with graphite and reinstalled.

Speedometer Gauge Slipping - Inaccurate Reading


I had a car that did this to me. It started happening last year so I took it in and they were baffled. Lesson learned never take a car to a big chain store for a difficult diagnosis.They just told me to let my car warm up for 5 minutes and it would be fine. If I let it warm up it was good. This winter it started doing it again but it would do it all the time even after I let it warm up. I never bothered bringing it in again because it was dieing. If you are truly concerned take it into a mechanic ( a good one) and have them diagnose it. Your spedometer cable could just be wearing out.
