How to disconnect erratic speedometer

Erratic speedometers are an indication of a binding speedometer cable. Lubricating the cable will solve the problem.

Speedometer cable

Lubricate your speedometer cable periodically they’re a nuisance to replace. Disconnect at both ends, and squirt lubricant into the speedometer end ’till it runs out the transmission end.

Accessing the speedometer cable to lubricate on 1990 F-150

You can do it one of 3 ways...
a. Remove the Instrument Cluster from in front of the wheel, Lubricate
b. Remove the Cable from Under the dash and Lubricate
c. Remove the Cable from the Transmission and Lubricate.

Removing BOTH ends and cleaning first from Pressure TOP to Transmission is highly recommended and injecting a Light Lithium Grease I have found to give the best results but if you are having a problem with the Speedometer Cable itself... They are inexpensive and easy to replace. That is what I would do if it was making noise.. Less than $30 for a new cable

1999 Subaru Legacy GT 30th anniv speedo inoperative @ times

1) most of the problem with speedometer is a) noises b) inacurrate reading c) not operating at all.
Most of the time you can fix it by lubricating the cable with approved lubricant. In another cases can be replaced. Some time is the bushing .
Is possible to short out wire while reaching behind the instrument panel. Disconnect the battery negative cables before removing the speedometer cable assembly. Of course you must test the SENSOR. see the diagram
God bless you

My dads friend has a '72 Corvette that he had stored for about 16 years now, and has recently had two issues, one being the speedometer and odometers have stopped working, would I be right in thinking the...

For the speedometer and odometer to have stop working yes and no it can be the cable. Lets start with the cable.Speedometer cable do break due to age, and lack of lubrication. There is also a pinion gear that goes into the transmission. Then there is a Ferrule that goes into the speedometer. The best way to troubleshoot it is to take it out from the transmission and twist it it should turn freely and as it turns freely the speedometer head should move.You would also be able to pull it out and inspect the cable for frayed wire coming apart. and at the same time that cable need to be lubricated. Now would the problem reside in the transmission drive gear, Not really, would it be in the speedometer head, No, You weakest link will be the cable why no lubrication it dried up. For the key to not come out and its a manual, Try to spray a lubricant in the slot. Then turn it , Those had a locking mechanism that released the key in the off section. and lock the key in the run or ACC section, Again there was no lubrication so the release mechanism is dried, spray a lubricant in the key slot and it will help release it

My speedometer is not working is it a cable? a fuse? a relay? i need to fix 1985 buick lesabre 307 v8 4 barrel rocker

Yes it is the cable type. The instrument cluster must first be removed. Depress the retaining clip on the back of the cluster to release the speedometer cable. Once the end of the speedometer drive cable is exposed, grip the inner cable with pliers and draw it out of the housing. Installation is the reverse of removal, but lubricate the entire cable. Use special speedometer cable lubricant, Not oil, for this purpose. Insert the cable into the housing using a twisting movement until the lower end is felt to engage with the pinion gear at the transmission. You can also check the Pinion Gear at the transmission, That is where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Some times these small nylon gears will strip out caused from no lubrication in the speedometer cable housing. If the above does not solve your problem you may need to change out the cluster itself to obtain a good working speedometer head. Good Luck and Happy New Year. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

Speedometer bounces around on my 1972 chevrolet pickup and makes a noise within the cable where it connects on the cluster..

There is a cable inside the sheath of you speedometer cable that looks like a long tightly wound spring. It may be about to fail. You can remove it and get a new one. If it can not all be removed from the top - you will have to undo the cable at the transmission to remove it. Be sure you get all of it out. When you reinstall the new cable be sure and lube it well. I use motorcycle chain oil - it is water proof and lasts a long time. Let me know if this helps. Thanks. (nice a '72 hope it is realy good shape)

Speedo doesnt work

Speedometer Cable REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Reach behind the speedometer and depress the retaining clip. Pull the cable from the casing. If the cable is broken, raise the car and disconnect the cable at the transmission. Lubricate only the bottom 3⁄4 of the cable core with speedometer cable lubricant. Reconnect all parts.
