98 tdi has electronic speedo and the most likley fault is the speed sensor on the transfer box just infront of the handbrake drum on the lefthand side it is held in by a 10mm headed bolt

How do i fix my instrament cluster


In.93 I believe they used a cable not a speed sensor then. So your cable is most likely broken or if manual transmission the cable was possibly over tightened after the clutch was replaced

My speedometer has stopped working, what can i do?


This solution might be a little dated, but if your speedometer cable has broken, that would acuse the speedo to stop working. The fix used to be, to unscrew the speedo cable from the transmision. It is pretty easy to spot, it is an odd looking flexible cable. Then get behind the dash, and unscrew it there, then go by a new speedo cable and replace it. This might not work with some of the newer digital read outs though.

Speedometer quit working


There is no Speedometer cable on a 2002 Jetta. You have a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) I would have someone check the codes on it and see if the VSS is the problem.

Speedometer doesn't work in my 98 Mits Galant and only warm air.


Well the speedo problem could well be behind the actual speedo gauge. Theres a long square shapped plastic piece on the end of the cable the fits in to the back of the gauge, as it turns it makes the hand on the dial read the speed, In most cases the plastic bit breaks away from the cable which will make the speedo read zero.You will have to get another speedo cable and replace it the same route as your original one.You have to take off the dash surround to get the gauge cluster out for a start to see if its broken at that end.
