    its on my step brothers car. he said he changed the sensor but for all i know he may have changed the wrong thing. i ever had to mess with a speed sensor before so i cant say if h changed the right thing or not. what he changed was on top of the transmission kinda looked like a spark plug in a way with a ball in the bottom of it. he has 3 different clusters so weknow its not that cuz it doesnt work on any of them. i tried putting a test light on the plug in the dash to make sure it has power and it does. i guess because his speedometer is electrical there is no speedometer cable so i know thats not it

    get a scanner .raise front of car.block rear wheels.make sure you are on level ground .set the emergency brake.set turn car ignition on dont start.set your scanner to see the vechicle speed. shift tranny to drive.have some one turn front wheels if you see vechicle speed works you have wiring problem in dash cluster.if you see no vechicle speed you have vechicle speed sensor problem or wire connector that goes to sensor.

Is there a fuse for speedometer


The speedometer should be on the same circuit as the rest of the gauges.
If the speedometer and odometer stop working, you should get a check engine light and the problem could be the speed sensor in the transmission.

THE TACH, SPEEDOMETER & AMPMETER ARE ALL MALFU...


If you have 3 gauges out but the rest are working then this is a problem with your gauge drive motors wearing out, very common on these Silverado instrument clusters.

I can repair these for a very reasonable price and have free shipping, check my page here www.DrSpeedometer.com

My speedometer wont move just reads 20 the hole time till car it turned off when it does decide to work the the millage starts again but when it is jsut resting at 20 nothing on the gauge works properly...


this happens to be a very common problem with accords of this vintage. the problem is in the speedometer gauge cluster itself. you can do 2 things replace with a used cluster from ebay or go to the dealer and purchase just the speedometer part from the honda parts department which would cost more then a used complete assembly.

sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster) into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then further diagnostic will be needed.

97 town and country LXI mini van speedometer and tach not working


the cluster needs to be calibrated to the pcm before the speedo and tach will work. You will have to take it to the dealer to have it done. The last time I had to do it, it cost me 70 dollars.
