You;ll want to look for a cable that runs from the transmission into the firewall, this usually controls the speedometer and odometer, depending on the configuration. If it is an analog odometer/speedometer, this is most likely where your problem is. The other alternative to this is a speed sensor gear that meshes with the main ring gear in the transmission which drives this cable. If you have no experience with transmissions, changing the speed sensor gear would probably better be left to a mechanic. I have seen many of these cables wear, and develop rust, then your driving along, and they break in half, since the cable actually spins inside a plastic sleeve.

My Speed, rpm gauges are not working, my entire led gas and odometer display are not working and some of my notification lights work and others don't?

check that the battery is good by having a load test done. Continually removing the battery lead corrupts the CPU program in the ECM unit and fixes nothing. Use a scanner to reset the program correctly. Run fault codes and check for speed sensor (TSS)/TCM problems in the transmission.

My 1999 GMC Sonoma speed odometer doesn't work, all other dash functions work. What could be wrong?

First, there are three different sound systems available for a 2003 Oldsmobile Bravada. The wiring diagrams are completely different for each of them. The options are:

> Base Radio WITH Rear Seat Audio
> Base Radio WITHOUT Rear Seat Audio
> Preminum Sound Radio (seperate amplifier)

NONE of these systems have ANYTHING to do with the speedometer other than the fact that the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) gets its speed information from the Body Control Module (BCM) and all three of these possible sound systems also tie into the BCM.

The only thing I can guess is that your aftermarket installation is completely unable to communicate with the BCM as it is supposed to, and is also interfering with data communications between the BCM and the IPC.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) also communicates with the BCM and needs this information to control the engine and transmission properly. If you have engine control codes, I would recommend that you THOROUGHLY investigate and repair these before doing any thing else to your vehicle. Also, you need to scan the rest of the modules in your vehicle to see if it can be determined what is going on. I am willing to bet that your system is full of "U" codes, indicating network communications failures.

The sped ometer and odometer has quit,now i notice sometimes the transmission does not shift from first without stopping placing it in park. Turn off switch and start over and it will down shift at times

depending on the model and year there are so many sensors and solenoids on the trans and engine that it is going to be hard to fix without a scan tool.......but if this started at the same time the odometer and the speedo quit working i would be looking at the speed sensor in the trans and then the speed sensor that is made in the speedo head that both can make the speedo head and the odometer not work......i hope that this info will help you and if ican be of any other help let me know.......let me and fixya know if this was any help to you and a thumbs up would be appreciated.....good luck and have a blessed day............

Speed ometer and tack omiter dont work all outher gadges work

If was only techomeer would have suggested Alternator. as an option get that checked, can usually get it done free especially if you are a member of a motoring organisation.

Speedo is usually operated via a connection to your wheels so that connection may be damaged if you have 'bottomed out; your car anywhere.
