SOURCE: Speedometer works sporadically

It sounds as if liquid got into the instrument cluster and the speedometer gauge might have some rust on the spring. Check to see if any other gauge is sticking sometimes.

1999 ford escort speedometer dosen't work. Dose this have a fuse? Where is the VSS located? PICTURE service engine light went on around same time asscioated with speed sensor?

it is very common for the VSS to fail on the escorts of that vintage. the VSS sensor is located on the top side of transmsision near the fire wall. it is accessed from under vehicle while on lift, near center of vehciel, there will be a few wires going to it. this sensor has a tendancy to rot into the transmsison based on you geographical location (rust belt??) it can be very difficult to remove it from the transmssio n..they usually break when they do come out (if you live is a rusty area)

If it has antilock brakes, the sensor is on the top of the rear differential. This sensor usually drives the speedometer. check the sensor for an open in its windings and also the wire that connects to it for any breaks.

91 speedometer and miles

I have a 91 Accord. When I purchased it, the speedometer did not work. I replaced the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) and the speedometer started working again. I paid $24 for the sensor on ebay. The local part stores wanted $150. It's an easy fix. It takes about 20 minutes to replace.
