Check the speedometer cable if it is fitted correctly (from tyres to meter). In worst case open speedometer check the coil and try to give it a twist with your fingers. if the needle doesn't move a bit your speedometer has gone so you have to change your speedometer.

1989 toyota corolla 1.6 gl, where can i find the terminal for speedometer in the engine bay..


Output speed sensor usually located in transmission usually close to where axles go into transmission. The sensor can be identified by having 8 mm headed bolt that hold the sensor in. These speed sensors just don't quit one day. A wire is usually the culprit or debris on magnet of sensor or physically broken sensor. If speedometer intermittently starts working then its always a wire with bad connection.

My speedometer and odometer quit working. I replaced the sensor on the transmision and it didn't fix the problem. By the way, the part cost me $174.00 + tax. That was an employee price sence I used to be a...


The odometer quits working when the speedometer quits working. The most common cause for the speedometer to quit working is the speed sensor in the transmission. You said you replaced it, there is also a transmission speed sensor on your truck that may need to be replaced. I understand your frustration, but there is nothing else that would cause the speedometer to quit except the cable behind the gauges being clogged.

Speedometer quit working


I'm not sure this is what you wanted? You see the fuses and relay. Ground wires are black.

Horn and speedometer


Unless it is a wiring problem somewhere, then I would guess that the two problems are separate issues and they just happened to both go around the same time. I am still thinking that the horn issue is probably just a fuse. The speed sensor is not as bad as it sounds, and it is actually pretty easy to replace if you know where to look. The speed sensor can be purchased from any honda dealer or chain auto parts store. I would always recommend genuine honda parts, they are a little more expensive but are much more reliable and are always an exact fit. If you would like to change the speed sensor and need help with that, please let me know. You can e-mail me at computergeek2009@hotmail.com. Thanks, and I hope this fixes your problems.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
