Speedometer on 1997 Buick LeSabre Broken

I have a 1997 Buick LeSabre. The speedometer is not working and I believe I will have to replace the entire dashboard unit. Is there any way around this? Some dashboards I have looked at are sold without gauges. Would this be a problem when my mechanic replaces the old dashboard with the new one?
Thanks.

    could also be the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor)
    my Lesabre speedometer failed a week ago and that did the trick
    the sensor is on the right side near the axle on the tail shaft

Speedometerspeedometer cluster for 1997 Buick Lasbre


Could be a bad cable. If it is broken into, you'll get swings like this. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself. If not, most garages can do it for you.

My speedometer is not working is it a cable? a fuse? a relay? i need to fix 1985 buick lesabre 307 v8 4 barrel rocker


Yes it is the cable type. The instrument cluster must first be removed. Depress the retaining clip on the back of the cluster to release the speedometer cable. Once the end of the speedometer drive cable is exposed, grip the inner cable with pliers and draw it out of the housing. Installation is the reverse of removal, but lubricate the entire cable. Use special speedometer cable lubricant, Not oil, for this purpose. Insert the cable into the housing using a twisting movement until the lower end is felt to engage with the pinion gear at the transmission. You can also check the Pinion Gear at the transmission, That is where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Some times these small nylon gears will strip out caused from no lubrication in the speedometer cable housing. If the above does not solve your problem you may need to change out the cluster itself to obtain a good working speedometer head. Good Luck and Happy New Year. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

No speedometer


Two seperate problems. Your transmission like needs a rebuild, one of your bands or clutch paks are failing. That's why it will only do one gear. The no speedo reading, is likely a broken or disconnected speedometer cable.

1997 buick lesabre has intermitant speedometer/odometer


Possible ground wire fault with dash board unit. If it is a cable operated spedo, the cable end (small square cap) may be rounding off on one end.
