Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty

Open Question

Speedometer For a while it would randomly jump high or low. Over the weekend i drove it through 8-900 mile trip and the speedometer was jumping the majority of the time. I got in the engine and made sure all connected cords were tight and not lose. When I started the jeep again my yellow engine light came on. I took apart the dash to check out the connection behind the speedometer and it was in good condition. I followed the cords to the engine fuse box and the fuses were old but looked good. two fuses for the ABS are missing though. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

There could be a fusible link under the hood off the starter relay that is burnt out.

I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.

SOURCE: 2002 jeep liberty speedometer stopped working

I had similar problem with my 2002 Jeep Liberty when it was new. Speedometer went crazy when I turned on the heater. As i turned up the level of air, the speedometer was directly affected. Turned out it was a loose grounding wire in the dash, and the air pressure from the heater caused it to move and lose grounding. I would guess you have a loose wire somewhere. But on the plus side, you aren't putting as many miles on your odometer...

It is a 4x4 and I cant find the speed sensor that operates the speedometer. The speedometer sticks at 100mph at a dead stop. It also jumps around between 75 and 80 at random when I am only doing 45 mph.


On our Lincoln, the problem was the Alternator shorting and energizing the ground circuit with Positive juice. Our speedometer and odometer were both affected.

We had miles advancing and 45-50 MPH at a stop. Then inaccurate readings while the car was moving.

Car-stuff.com seems to have the best price for the actual speed sensor which is located in the differential @$11.94.

Please rate my solution and I hope I was helpful.

Speedometer is sticking and then jumping up every couple of mph


The speedometer in this truck is electronic, the needle is moved by a tiny electric motor called the speedometer needle stepper motor, a stepper motor is a DC motor than can hold one position rather than just rotate when power is applied to it. You will need to remove the instrument cluster from the truck and send it in to a Ford electronics repair center that repairs speedometers.

The speedometer is part of the instrument cluster. I would suggest you buy one on ebay that has been recycled. If the one from the junkyard does the same thing then the problem is probably in the body control module (BCM). I hope this helps.

My speedometer quit but the odometer still works (1998 F150) can you solve this


Usually it's the opposite. The speedometer works and the odomater and trip meter go inop. Most likely the speedometer assembly is bad. If the odometer is working you have a signal from the gray and black wire .
