Speedometer should either be in the transmission or the rear end. I have a 92 mines in the rear end . If in the trans there's a small plastic gear that works it . I'm not sure how it works in the rear end.

You can try to fish it out with a mechanics magnet. It has a small magnetized end and telescopes in and out. You ca gat it at the auto parts store. If you can't get it out that way you will have to open up the transfer case. Hope this helps.

Disconect your battery cables and rub them together or step on the brake pedal for a couple of minutes to drain all residual voltage from the computers. Leave disconected for about 10-15 minutes reconect the battery and see if the speedo has normal operation, if not you need a new instrument cluster

Hi,
Likely one of your Speed Sensors (VSS) is bad. Sorry I don't know WHERE these are located, but get on some of the Chevy Truck forums for answers.

Speedometer and odometer not working told by previous owner he replaces vss also one sensor at rear of transfer case is not plugged in is this a common problem if so what is common fix?


What make and model? It is possible that the unplugged sensor is for the speedo / odo, since the pulses for the speedo and hence the odo is picked up from the final drive on the transmission.
Note, it is only a possibility, we need more information.

When should you replace the speed control sensor in the transfer case of a 1998 ford explorer


it is not a speed control sensor it is a speed sensor. it needs replacing when it fails. the problems to look for from it failing would be intermittent or no speedometer or cruise control kicking in and out. these sensors do not fail very often they are just a prox switch picking up metal tabs on a ring as they pass by the end of the sensor
