Speedo not working


Need a bit more info about the vehicle. Older vehicles tended to have a manual speedometer cable which on rare occasion did end up breaking on it. Modern-day Vehicles typically have a speedometer that's controlled electronically and usually feeds off some electrical components that are typically housed somewhere with the transmission of the vehicle, you may also just want to check your fuses and possibly for a loose connection around the transmission

Speedometer is sticking and then jumping up every couple of mph


The speedometer in this truck is electronic, the needle is moved by a tiny electric motor called the speedometer needle stepper motor, a stepper motor is a DC motor than can hold one position rather than just rotate when power is applied to it. You will need to remove the instrument cluster from the truck and send it in to a Ford electronics repair center that repairs speedometers.

96 honda accord speed sensor not working


I guess you mean the speedometer isnt working? It could be a couple of things. 1. the actual speedometer cable is broke. If electronic it is probly your VSS. typically located on the trans towards the output shaft. You will need to ohm it out and check against spec.

My 1996 Honda Odometer stopped running, It is currently at 164999 and won't go any further Both the distance meter and odometer don't move


You just have a bad vehicle speed sensor, has three wire's going to it, sit on top of transmission between transmission and fire wall on top of transmission, held on with a 10mm bolt.Depending if it's manual or automatic transmission the part will cost any where between $70.00 and $160.00.Hope this was very helpful.

How do I fix the speedometer on a 1985 Cadillac deville. sometimes it works if you hit a bump but only for a minute


If it is a mechanically driven type, look for a loose connection on either end of the outer drive cable housing--at the output end of the transmission or the back of the speedometer head. If electronic display, look for a loose electrical connection at the transmission output end.

Speedometer


check for a connector not fully seated.

here's info

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
On vehicles equipped with 4-wheel anti-lock brake systems (4WABS), the vehicle speed signal is generated by the rear anti-lock brake sensor and sent to the 4WABS module. The 4WABS module sends the vehicle speed signal via circuit 679 (GY/BK) to all systems that require a vehicle speed signal input. Vehicles equipped with rear anti-lock brakes (RABS) generate a vehicle speed signal from the rear axle speed sensor. The generic electronic module (GEM) receives this signal (VSS_GEM) for internal use and then distributes it to the appropriate other users (i.e., the powertrain control module [PCM], speed control module, and speedometer).
Speedometer
The electronic speedometer (17255) receives a speed signal from the 4WABS module (if equipped with 4WABS) or the generic electronic module (GEM)/central timer module (CTM) (if equipped with RABS). RABS = Rear antilock brake system

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.
