2000 cirrus want change gears goes in drive and reverse inside on the dash where it tells you what gear you in all has squares around them speedometer doesn't work


Sounds like a speed sensor, I will look into that, but if the speedometer isn't working, its either cable, or electronic. Being a 2000, I'm guessing electronic. Chrysler have a lot of electronics on the transmission, as they are electronic themselves. I had an alternator go bad and my battery died, and the car wouldn't shift, it actually down shifted while driving. Have your battery and alternator checked first, then sensors. Like shift silinoid, speed sensor etc.

Speedometer and odmoeter don,t work


Either the cable got disconnected somehow behind the dash, the cable broke, or the plastic gears wore out. If yours is digital check fuses.

My speedometer stopped working on my 2004 f150. It used to work intermittently, but has now stopped.


If you have over 100k miles the nylon/plastic tip of the speedo cable might have broke off and or pulled out of the square hole that drives it. Although more rare you may have one of the gears on the side of the tranny worn. If you replace one make sure you use the same color. They use different colors for different applications like rear end ratios, tire size changes etc.

When it was starting to go did the speedo show solid or did the speed meter **** between say 20 and 40 over and over (example only)? If so the cable got so dry that it froze in place and caused the nylon end to break or bend and push the cable out of its hole. Years ago you could buy kits maybe some special place like JC Whit might have one. If it got dry you can simply pull it wire out of the cable, clean and lubricate it well when you slide it back in make sure you twist it as you go to spread the oil around.

If you have a low miles car and you find the speedomter gear teeth are worn off it also could have a dry cable. Don't replce the gear without lubricating the cable or you will soon wear out another gear.

A jerking speedometer is a sure bet that the cable is running dry. Some will even tick or slap as they travel each circle.

I have a problem with a 1989 f-250 automatic transmission diesel engine. The problem is when i take off , the transmission will not change gears unless i let off of the excelorator and when i let off the...


This may sound crazy to you. Check the fuse that controls the speedometer, cruise control and interior dome light. My 93 f150 battery was going dead every night. One morning I noticed the dome light inside was still on. I couldn't get it to go off so I pulled the fuse that is under the dash on the driver side. Light went out and so did speedometer. When I drove it later that day it wouldn't shift from low until I let off the gas. Then it would shift around between gears for no apparent reason. It took me a day of two to put 2 and 2 together. When I put the fuse back in, the speedometer started working and it started shifting normally. I finally took the bulb out of the dome light and now all is well.On the 93 f150 the speedometer is electronically linked to the transmission shifting points. You may have other fuses that are linked to your transmission.
