Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

This is in regards to a 1991 Cutlass Ciera speedometer/odometer.

This is in regards to a 1991 Cutlass Ciera.

The speedometer stops working periodically while driving (sometimes from the time it starts). While driving the speedometer will occasionally shoot from 0 so 120 (enitre speedometer) and then drop back down to 0. When the speedometer is not working the odometer also stops.

All connections are firmly connected and the contacts were all cleaned. The wire paths have been checked from the sensor to the firewall on the engine side with a fluke and meter, which show nothing out of the ordinary.

Check the resistance - both primary and secondary on your coil pack, also check resistance of the plug wires and spark plug gap. Sometimes the coil heats up and shorts which kills the spark to the plugs.

How to fix my odometer in 1991 plymouth acclaim


If the speedometer is working but not the odometer it's in the speedometer it's self. replacing the speedometer cluster is the easiest their available on ebay or your local salvage yard.
what happens is the trip odometer wears and sticks, theres a small motor on a circuit board with a plastic sun gear, inside the speedometer housing. it drives both the odometer and the trip odo
the teeth strip off the sun gear and odometer stops.
