1997 Jetta GLX speedometer and odometer

My 1997 Jetta GLX speedometer and odometer do not work most of the time. Once in a great while, they will work fine. Everything else in the dashboard works fine. What could be the problem?

If your cluster gauges work ok but your speedo does not work once and awhile, its time to replace your cluster panel, this is a common problem in the MK3's I had to change mine twice in the MK3 vdubs I own. Its fairly easy to replace, I just picked up a used one at a scrap yard. The cluster panel is all once peace you can not swap out gauages, you can try but you will do more damage then its worth. Good luck

My odometer and tachometer and speedometer all do not work but my gas guage ,battery and everything else works but it wont shift


Chevrolet had dashboards that failed for many years , you can remove the dash and have it repaired (about $ 300 ) check on line for a repair shop. I had my 2004 repaired and it worked great.

1997 Lincoln Continental - Speedometer Not Working


Does the odometer work? If so,you'll have to pull the gauge cluster out to send for repair.If the odometer doesn't work either,you may have a bad or disconnected VSS(vehicle speed sensor-located on the tailshaft housing of the transmission)

The speedometer and odometer dont work, tachometer does work on my 1997 Jetta, what could be the possible problem


Maybe the previous owner had it disconnected so the true mileage is not recorded.Check the fuses if its electronic or the cable if its manual.Fuses should be under the hood or down by where your feet go behind the kickplate...

99 jetta check engine light on, runs fine, speedometer not workin


o2 sensors will put your check-engine-light on. it is attached to the exhaust (closest to the motor)and rusts-out sometimes. you could try to fix it by buying the o2 sensor and use a socket-set to see if it loosens. i 'm not a mechanic but have had the issue, in the past, with the jetta II's and a 1997.the guys at vw dealers are great with info, if your a hands-on kinda guy/girl.

Odometer doesn't work, is it something i can fix?


More than likely your lead gear for your odometer is spinning on the shaft and not advancing the odometer or tripometer. You will need to remove the speedometer from the cluster to verify. once the speedometer is removed you will find a metal/gray colored gear next to the odometer digits. Take a small flat tip screw driver while holding the odometer digits in place with your finger, try and spin the gear. If the gear spins this is your problem. OdometerGears.com has the three different sizes of gear for you to fix it.
