SOURCE: SPEEDOMETER CABLE

Hi.
It's a common fault with the cables.

If you can take it apart when you remove it, Then use petrol to clean it, let it dry, then use a thin oil like 3 in 1 and re-assemble.

If this still produces the same effect - Replace the whole thing - it won't get better.

(I restore Land Rovers - this is a common fault)

SOURCE: Ihave a 91 300zx and my speedometer doesn't work.

The most likely problem is the speedometer cable is broken, probably near the transmission. if it's the cable, probably under $10. Disconnect the housing at the transmission, and the cable is inside. Pull the cable out, it should be square at both ends. a broken cable is obvious. insert a good cable (with some appropriate cable lube) into the flexable cable housing, you might have to turn the cable a bit to get the end back in the speedometer. If it is broke , you will also have to disconnect the housing at the speedometer to get the other end out. You might be able to reach it from under the dash, but you might have to loosen the instrument cluster to reach it.

Sometimes odometer stops working, then seems if you hit a bump it works again


There should be, based on what size engine and whether it is an automatic or manual transmission:
For an Automatic Transmission:
Vehicle Speed Sensor's (plural) on the Transmission An Input and Output Speed Sensor. The one that controls the Speedometer is the Output one.
Before removing and replacing anything - check the connections. Unplug and re-plug the connections. The bump-activation leads me to believe their is a loose connection.
After removing the Sensor's clean the interior ends (their magnetic and may have metal particles covering them - meaning the signals may be interrupted) and re-install and check the operation of the Speedometer.
If it is still intermittent, then replace the Output Sensor.
Which one is Output and which one is Input?
The Output Speed Sensor's inside end is round.
The Input Speed Sensor inside end is hexagon (6-sides).
Don't buy and replace both. Try the Output first. It is about $17 at autozone Part Number is #SU 1034.
The Input is Part #SU 1018 and is also around $17.
FOR MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS:
Part #SU 394. But again check the connection's of both the electrical and attachment to the body before replacing (the "bump" factor). Again also: clean it and reinstall and check operation before buying it at around $45.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have addtional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

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.

My 93 jeep wrangler speedometer stopped working on day it was rainin out and hasnt worked since any idea why and how to fix


Check the connection to the speed sensor gear. It will be a cable plugged into the output shaft on the top of the transfer case (behind the transmission). It is possible that it became disconnected or has a broken wire.

Odometer and trip odometer stopped working. Speedometer works.


The problem is going to be a worn or broken odometer gear. You can purchase the gear at odometergears.com for $29.00 with the shipping. Follow their how to repair on the Mustang to help in the repair. I believe you will have just the worm gear to replace.

The speedometer on my 2002 Grand Cherokee Jeep stop working?


I believe your speedometer works off of a sensor either in the wheal or transmission, check this first then check your speedometer, sometimes they go bad and you have to replace the entire dash.

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it
