Question about Toyota Paseo
Sspeedometer cable quit working, pulled it out and looked fine. What does the speedo screw into before the transmission???
Most speedo cables attached directly to the adaptor that holds the drive gear in place in the transmission housing. This adaptor can be removed and the gear comes out with it . The teeth can be inspected and if they are not full and in tact then it is possible that the meshing with the drive gear on the output shaft is not happening. replacement speedo gears are available but you will need the one you have as the gears have several different teeth ratios to allow for speedo corrections

Not sure how mechanicaly minded you are but you can do an easy check with the minimum of work.Assuming your speedo is run by a cable and not a transducer.Undo cable at gear box end and try to spin the plastic gear by hand should be free of binding or any other restriction.if you have a dual speed drill attach to plastic gear turn it on and see what the speedo is doing Leave running long enough to determine wether the problem is outside the gear box and not the expensive option.You can remove the plastic gear and completely remove the inner core to check its condition.If the core is at fault you can take the core out of the replacement cable and slide it back up the origional cable.Make sure you twist the core when putting back in as the ends of the core are square.This saves you the trouble of pulling the dash apart.

yes the speed sensor on the top of the diferencial controls the speedometer, milage, and the ABS breaking system. that light should be on as well, I had the same problem for about a year until I got myself a diagnostic computer, plugged it in and there I got all my codes.

I would go to a salvage yard or an auto parts place and look at one because it sounds like the gear on one end of your speedo cable came off and then all you have to do is get the complete cable and it comes with instructions which end goes to wheel and which end to transmission but if you cannot find that end more then likely it is in the bottom of the transmission pan

Well I would verify the trany speed gear is "ate up" first, theres only one 10mm bolt that holds it in place, sure the area around the speedo cable is very CLEAN before removing it any dirt in there would make things bad to say the least. If you pull the cable out the gear is attached to the cable if it looks good then put it back together and remove your cluster (speedo and other gauges inside) I suggest you pick up a repair manual at a big auto store on MK1-MK2 vdubs (82-92) to explain how to remove speedo cable from back of cluster its kinda of tricky getting your fingers back there and pressing it together to get it to release. Once out drive the car and see if that cable is turning from the inside if it is then its your speedo gauge that is faulty. Grab a cluster from a scrap yard, if that cable is NOT turning then the gearing inside the trany is messed up which would mean taking the trany apart to repair it. If that was the case you would be cheaper to replace the whole trany with a used one. Good luck
