Bring it to the shop! anything with a cluster issue just bring to the shop. you may ask why, and this is why. if you tamper with the cluster in anyway shape or form and go to resell the car later on, and that said person that buys the car brings it to a shop and they say the cluster has been tampered; they may also suggest the odometer was rolled. if this happens you will enjoy the police knocking at your door and you will have to return his money + some for a lawey. if you bring it to a dealer ship they will give you records that they where the onces that went in there and nothing was altered. dealerships are trust worthy in the buyers eyes not privet sellers.... hope this help just trying to save you head ache for the future and possiable resell value

How do I Fix my Speedometer?
Answer Repairing or replacing the speedometer for your car is a pretty easy undertaking. Whether it is the cable that needs to be replaced or the speedometer itself, it is a simple matter of removing a few fittings with a wrench or pliers.

Why speedometer problems car runs faster than speed on speedometer?


Since the diagnostic shows good, it's a physical problem. Check that tire size is correct for the vehicle. Too large will slow the speedo. Tires too small will increase the speedo.

Speedometer bounces from current speed down to zero (where it sometimes sticks)


It won't be a cable, as it's impossible for a cable driven speedo to perform this way.
It's an electronic speedo.

Check and/or replace the speedo sensor in the gearbox housing.

1988 Nissan MaximThe speedometer quite working Is there a fuse??


Hi,

If you got ignition lights it won't be the fuse.
Check that the speedo gear is ok and then check the cable is ok.
If all those are ok then check that the speedo head is working by spinning the cable in the speedo head.

Hope this helps

My speedometer does not work and I would like to fix it myself. I have a 1994 Chevy CK100


The speedometer is cable driven off the transmission. The first things to check are the cable and the gear that drives the cable on the transmission.

Speedometer and tach stopped working 92 honda accord


Since the Speedo and Tach both quit working and they use separate sending units, I would be looking for a common electrical plug they share under the dash behind the speedo. When you find said plug check to make sure that it is plugged in securely. if it seems to be plugged in well unplug it and then replug it just in case the contacts were getting a bit dirty or corroded.

It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.

Speedometer wont move


You probably have a broken speedometer cable. Was the needle wagging back and forth and making strange noises periodically before it quit working?
