I don't think it would be a fuse , there isn't a fuse just for the speedometer and the odometer . Fuse's for whole instrument cluster ,other thing's wouldn't work ! VSS- vehicle speed sensor could be bad . How does the vehicle shift . Most vehicle speed sensor's are inputs to the PCM - engine computer . The information is then sent the instrument cluster over a serial data network .

SOURCE: speedometer and odometer not working 92 audi 100

I had similar problems with speedos in two 1990 Audi 100s, it was some time ago, but the contacts on the circuit boards on the back of the speedo deteriorate and do not give a good contact. I bought second hand speedos, only to find they had similar problems, eventually it was very easy to fix, I shaved matchsticks to chisel points and pushed them into the circuit boards to add pressure on the contacts and improve connection. After that repair drove the cars for a few years and the problem did not recur. It was a long time ago and I cannot remember exactly where the matchsticks were placed but look for soldered points near the edges of the boards. Regards, Michael

SOURCE: My speedometer and odometer stopped working

Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.

SOURCE: 1996 ford ranger odometer / trip stopped working

Since your speedometers work, the problem is in the gearing to the trip and mileage odometers. Simple problem, major pain to fix but, remove instrument cluster - you'll have to remove speedo cable to get it out. Use the old Mark I eyeball to check for broken parts. Might even have to drop steering column - disconnect air bag first!

Odometer on my 2008 jeep patriot is not working but all other gauges are


If the odometer and speedometer are not working, it could be the speed sensor in the trans. If only the odometer is not working, its probably the speedometer head in the dash.

Transmission speed sensor


You could have a faulty speedometer/odometer combination meter causing a false Vehicle Speed Sensor error.
My 1998 Sienna had the following symptoms:
- Speedometer and odometer failed intermittently
- The check engine light would come on and I would get a p0500 code in the OBDII.
- The cruise control would stop working at the same time the speedometer failed.
There is a speed sensor in each one of the tires and they feed the speed information to the ABS ECU. From the ABS ECU the speed signal goes to the speedometer/odometer combination meter, and from there it goes to the Engine Control Module and to the Cruise Control ECU. I could see a signal coming into the speedometer/odometer, but no signal going out. Replacing the speedometer/odometer combination meter fixed the problem.

My speedometer stopped working when I was driving home. Now it just sits at 0. What can I do to fix it?


Sounds like the speedometer/odometer cluster or the dash cluster itself has given up. Suggest checking Ebay or googling "digital dash rebuilders" for some rebuilt units, or you may be able to get a factory unit from the dealer. This happens a lot. A resistor in the printed circuit can go bad or the units themselves can go bad. An entire rebuilt or good junkyard unit is the preferred fix.Sounds like the speedometer/odometer cluster or the dash cluster itself has given up.

Car speedo & odometer sometimes work OK, other times not at all.


Most likely a speed sensor is going bad (most cars and truck do not use mechanical speedometer cables anymore) most sensors are located near the differential in rwd cars or near the drive shaft on the transmission. Best bet is to get a Haynes manual for your car to help locate the speed sensor. Remove it and take it to the auto parts store so you can visually compare it to the replacement. Install the new speed sensor and it should restore your speedometer and odometer.

Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.

2003 chrysler town & country speedometer stuck


sit in the drivers seat close the door. with the key off hold the trip odometer button in then while holding the button in turn the key on. if done correctly this will put the MIC (mechanical instrument cluster) into a self test. if the speedometer does not move like the rest of the gauges during this test the MIC must be replaced. if the speedometer does move it is likely your problem will be fixed, however, if the speedometer does move but it does not start working properly then further diagnostic will be needed.
