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.

SOURCE: Need to replace speedo cable in my 91 Festiva

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

What is the mostcommon reason the speedometer quits working on a 1991 Dodge D-150


Unscrew the speedometer cable from the back of the gauge and from the transmission, take the cable out of the sheath, clean it off with carb or brake cleaner, oil it and put it back in. If that doesn't do it, replace cable assembly. If that doesn't do it, pull the speedometer gear out of the transmission and check for wear. Replace if needed.

Locate speedometer cable


The speed meter cable arises from rear middle side of the transmission and is attached to the rear of combination meter assembly. It is a two part system. One is the inner speed meter wire and the outer cable or sleeve, in which the inner speed meter wire rotates to show the vehicle speed. The speed meter cable is in some Toyota models is made up or two cables, a smaller cable near the transmission side and larger one towards the meter, which are joined together to form a single piece First look up the inner wire of smaller piece and then pull out the other larger inner wire, without removing the whole cable. If it is found broken, replace the whole assembly.
To replace the speed meter cable assembly, unscrew the cable at the transmission side. Sit on a driver's seat, open the Philips screws from under side of the combination meter. Pull out the whole cover by tilting it to release from the steering wheel. Unscrew the 4 Philips screws, pull out the meter assembly a bit, bend your claw to approach behind the meter assembly, push the speed meter plastic lock force fully towards the cable and pull out the cable.
Ask your companion to slowly pull out the cable from the engine compartment side and you also push the cable towards the same direction simultaneously to take it out.
Install the new cable in the reversed order of dis assembly.
Hope that works. Thank you.

My 1999 dodge grand caravan speedometer not working


the speedometer cable could be broke, you can check this, you will have to get under the van, look at the transmission, there will be a cable that screws on. unscrew the cap that holds the cable to the transmission when you pull it off you can try to turn the inter part of the cable it should turn freely, then pull on it, if it comes out its broke. you can buy one at any auto parts store.

Why does the speedometer quit working


Something is failing in it, it is 15 years old and that happens. Most likely it is electronic and there is a sending unit screwed into the side of the transmission. These are usually cheap and easy to get at on a pickup truck. So you can buy a new one at a parts store, unplug the old one unscrew it, screw in the new one and reconnect the wires. If that did not fix it you are looking at replacing the instrument cluster and that is way more work and way more money. If it is a mechanical speedometer then you are looking at replacing the cable which unscrews from the transmission and the back of the cluster. Again on pick up trucks this is usually not too hard, but if a new cable does not fix it then you are looking at another cluster.

Speedometer quit working


Speedometer cables connect to the transmission. Trace the speedometer cable from the transmission to the dash. Disconnect the cable from the transmission and pull the cable out. Compare the length of the cable to the cable housing. If it is damaged or broken, replace the cable

My speedometer and odometer on my 98 ford explorer


the speedometer/odometer works on a cable that goes into the side of the transmission with one 10mm bolt holding it in. It sounds as if the cable has been broken,pulled loose, or siezed up. Its easy to check the end under the vehicle but its very complicated checking it inside the dashboard. If you are a do it yourself type of person, id look underneath and see if the connection under the vehicle is still connected. Look on left rear of the transmission for a cable that goes into it and is held with a "Y" bracket and a small bolt.The dashboard part is the type of job where u got to make sure you remember where each screw goes to get back together.

Speedometer doesn't work and transmission wont shift


Hi, make sure you check the speed cable that runs to the engine, it may be severed. As for the tranny, you have some major gear problems that will require pulling this transmission for a deeper look. i would have a look at the transmission filter as well.

Noisy speedometer


The click you are hearing might be a dry speedometer cable. Applying grease to the inner cable will most likely help this problem. The problem is getting to the cable behind the speedometer/dash panel. You can also get to the cable from under the truck. if you crawl under the truck and look at the smaller end of the transmission, you will see the cable screwed into the tail piece of the transmission. Remove the cable from the transmission and pull the inner cable out of the outer cable. The inner cable is what spins and causes the speedometer to turn. Take regular wheel bearing grease in the palm of your hand and slid the inner cable through the grease then put the inner cable back in the outer cable. When the inner cable gets to the back of the speedometer, you will have to slowly turn the cable and give a slight pressure inward to seat the inner cable into the speedometer.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck
