I'm not sure, but it can't hurt anything. Pull the ECU ( engine control unit) fuse from the Fuse box located in the engine compartment on the passenger side at the firewall. Leave it out for 30 minutes. That will reset all. Ignition OFF during the process.

2000 GMC Jimmy 4×4 The ABS light is on, the speed odometer does not work, and it does shift out of 1st gear, if I manually put it into second gear then it will shift fine, it has a changed VSS


Did you have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?
Speedometer
The speedometer is an analog gauge that is located in the instrument cluster. The PCM/VCM receives an analog input from the vehicle speed sensor and converts it to a digital signal containing 4,000 pulses per mile (PPM) for the instrument cluster.
The PCM/VCM sends this digital output (4,000 PPM) to the instrument cluster on a designated circuit. These pulses can be measured in Hertz (Hz) using a digital multimeter (DMM) on the AC scale. The PCM/VCM calibration is matched to the final drive and tire size of each vehicle. If the final drive or tire size is changed for any reason, the PCM/VCM must be updated in order to match the new final drive or tire size. If not, the signal will not be accurate for proper speedometer/odometer operation. An incorrect signal can affect the antilock brakes and the cruise control systems.
The speedometer system consists of the instrument cluster, vehicle speed sensor (VSS), PCM/VCM and related wiring. The VSS is a permanent magnet signal generator that sends an analog signal proportional to the propeller shaft speed to the PCM/VCM. The VSS mounts to the transmission tailshaft extension housing on 2-wheel drive (2WD) models and the transfer case output shaft housing on 4-wheel drive (4WD) models.
Repairs to the instrument cluster can only be performed by an authorized instrument cluster service center. DTC P0502 Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Circuit Low Input and DTC P0503 Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Circuit Intermittent in Automatic Transmission - 4L60-E
- DTC P0500 Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Circuit in Engine Controls - 4.3L Important: If the instrument cluster is completely inoperative, refer to Instrument Cluster Inoperative .
Install a scan tool.
Raise the vehicles drive wheels. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
Start the engine.
Place the transmission into drive for automatic transmission and third gear for manual transmission.
Compare the displayed vehicle speed on the Instrument Cluster with the monitored speed on the scan tool.
Does the vehicles speedometer and the scan tool both display 0 km/h (0 mph)? You really need a Factory scan tool or equivalent to check this . The VSS is an input to the PCM/VCM . engine computer . You can test with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , for signal to engine computer .
I know most people don't like hearing this , but I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair facility .

On my Mitsubishi galant i took out the cluster panel light to change a bulb i put everything back and now the speedometer not working i went to shop to scaner because the check engine light is on result...


1 st thing I would do is hook up a scanner, bring up the data & find the vehicle speed on the sensor, then drive the vehicle, if the scanner registers the speed, then that tells you the speed sensor is working. if not your speed sensor is N/G.
If you do have a speed reading on your scanner, I would check all the fuses, you may have blown one when working on the cluster, especially if you didn't disconnect the negative battery, before you started. other than that, you may have disconnected a connector while you had it out. Hope this helps

My speedometer not working? is it cause of the after-market radio i put in be the reason.. mitsubishi galant 2002 6 cylinder


So we can rule out the speed sensor and its circuit to the PCM.

I just checked through another area of my database and it seems the speed sensor is systated as on the side of transaxle, near firewall, maybe you can dheck that out to confirm, just out of curiosity and for future reference and some portion of testing requires unplugging the conections.

Anyway I will provide a complete diagnostic pocedures for you to check through and hope an answer is found.

PS. After going through the diagnostic procedure, I believe your radio is the cause of the problem. Refer to # 10

SPEEDOMETER DOES NOT WORK

1. Connect scan tool to data link connector, check for Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). If DTC P0500 (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is set, diagnose this DTC first. Go to step 6 . If DTC P0500 is not set, go to next step.

2. On Eclipse, if trip odometer is not working normally, go to next step. If trip odometer is working normally go to step 5. On Galant, if tachometer is not working normally, go to next step. If tachometer is working normally, go to step 5

3. Disconnect instrument cluster connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Connect DVOM between ground and instrument cluster connector terminal No. 52 (Black/White wire) on Eclipse or terminal No.29 (Black/White wire) on Galant. If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check harness connectors and harness wiring between instrument cluster and ignition switch for damage. Repair as necessary.

4. Using a DVOM, check resistance between ground and instrument cluster harness connector terminal No. 34 (Black wire) on Eclipse or terminal No. 30 (Black wire) on Galant. If resistance is less than 2 ohms, replace instrument cluster printed circuit board or speedometer and tachometer. If resistance is greater than 2 ohms, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

5. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor connector and instrument cluster connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Connect DVOM between ground and harness side of instrument cluster connector terminal No. 29 (White/Blue wire) on Eclipse or terminal No. 16 (Yellow/Black wire) on Galant. Voltage should be 5 volts. If voltage is okay, repair or replace instrument cluster printed circuit board or speedometer and tachometer. If voltage is not 5 volts, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

6. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor harness connector and connect DVOM to harness side. Check vehicle speed sensor power supply voltage between terminal No. 1 (Black/White wire) on Eclipse or (Black/Blue wire) on Galant and ground. Battery voltage should be present. If voltage is okay, go to next step. If voltage is not present, check vehicle speed sensor harness connector and wiring. Repair as necessary.

7. Using DVOM, check resistance between ground and vehicle speed sensor harness connector terminal No. 2 (Black wire). Resistance should be less than 2 ohms. If resistance is greater than 2 ohms, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

8. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor harness connector. Connect DVOM between ground and harness side terminal No. 3 (White/Blue wire) on Eclipse or (Yellow/Black wire) on Galant. If 9 volts are not present, check vehicle speed sensor harness connector and wiring. Repair as necessary. If 9 volts are present, go to next step.

9. Check harness wiring between vehicle speed sensor connector to radio and tape player connector, auto-cruise control ECU ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) connector and instrument cluster connector. If connectors or wiring are damaged, repair as necessary. If connectors and wiring are okay, go to next step.

CAUTION: To prevent damage to scan tool, always turn ignition off before connecting or disconnecting scan tool.

NOTE: If ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) is replaced, immobilizer-ECU should also be replaced. Each ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) has an encrypted code for immobilizer-ECU, and is registered in immobilizer-ECU.

10. Connect scan tool to data link connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Read DTC. Disconnect radio and tape player connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace radio and tape player. If speedometer does not work, disconnect auto-cruise control ECU connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace auto-cruise control ECU. If speedometer does not work, disconnect instrument cluster harness connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace instrument cluster. If DTC P0500 resets when any connector is disconnected, replace ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T).

1999 dodge ram van speed sensor wiring diagram. I put a new sensor in and it still doesn't work is there a fuse or something else I'm missing


ive run into this a few times, its a bad cluster or if theres a speed sensor on the rear diff then replace that also and see if that works. i had a few of these with the same problem and replace speed sensor in the trany and still no speedo and then replaced the rear diff sensor for abs on the top of the rear diff and that solved the problem.

2001 marquis speedometer stopped working. Replaced cluster- nothing, replaced speed sensor-- nothing, checked all fuses-- OK, stopped 3 wks ago when changine out rear air bags. What could the problem be?


check speed sensor signal at sensor and at cluster. Jack up drive wheels, Block other wheels, start car, put in drive. Then check both AC signals. The signal at the cluster is on pins 14 and 16. See diagrams below.

Speedometer needle maxed out and won't go back down. Unplugged the battery to try to reset and didn't work (so I'm hoping it's the speed sensor in the back). Where is the speed sensor?


It`s not the speed sensor.If it was the speed sensor it would not work or would not be accurate.If it is stuck then it is the cluster.You can try tapping on the top of the instrument panel and see if it will come back down.If not then you will have to replace the cluster.If you have under 70k miles the you can get this done at the dealership for free.If you have over 70k but not over 80k they will replace the cluster but you have to pay for the labor.Which includes replacing and programming.Even if you get a used cluster you still have to have it programmed by the dealership or the vehicle will not start.Hope this helps.Good luck.

How would I fix my speedometer if it shows nothing


you would find a functional used instrument cluster in a junkyard and pay someone to put it in for you. at the same time you would be paying them to install a new speed sensor as well to take care of both possible causes. speed sensors are cheap, clusters are not.

2000 sonata check engine lite came on, transmission went to 2 nd gear. computer said idler control valv bad.put in new, reset computer, drove 100 yds. check eng lite 2nd gear again, now computer said speed...


The output speed sensor is located on top of the transmission output shaft, this will send speed value to the transmission control module (TCM).
The vehicle speed sensor is installed on the differential of the transmission, and sends speed value to speed gauge on instrument cluster.

Check also IAC valve and look for vacuum leaks using an hand tool gauge(Vacuum Gauge and Fuel Pump Pressure).

1996 dodge neon speedometer wont work


My fiance has an automatic 1996 Dodge Neon, and every once in a while her speedometer begins to fail intermittently. The problem is actually an easy fix. Pry up the dashboard cover (it is just held down with pressure fasteners) and look around the instrument cluster. There should be 4 screws holding it down. Remove these screws and pull out the cluster towards you. It should come out with little trouble. There will be two black plugs mounted to the dash, with two matching sockets on the back of the cluster. What I did was take some small needle nose pliers, twist the connecters in the cluster slightly, either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Also, slide the plugs out of the dash, plug them into the cluster, and fit the cluster back into place. What I think was happening was that the plugs weren't making decent contact with the cluster, and the vibrations were jiggling them loose. So far, it has fixed the problem..
