The speedometer and odometer have stopped working. They failed and came back a few times before failing totally. Any ideas?


If it is the speed sensor in the transmission, you should also have problems shifting and the check engine light should be on.
If it shifts normally, the speedometer has failed.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Chrysler lhs transmission wont shift and my speedometer isnt working but all the other instruments are. what could it be?


It may be your speed sensor. When the speed sensor is not working, the speedometer will not work, the car will not shift past second gear, and the engine light should appear.

The speedometer in my 2005 mustang stop working what could be wrong... peter


Most of the time when the speedometer stopps the odometer stopps too it it has the transmission may have troble ( if it's automatic as the speedsenser helps the trans shift as the computer shifts the trans too. the check engine light should be on also if it's not and the odometer is still working the problem is in the speedometer itself and the unit can be shipped off though your ford dealer for repair but I woould'nt do that till the speedometer has been removed unplugged and replugged in to see if it's just a bad connection. The speed senser can fail too but you will have these other problems tha I mentioned. The senser is on the side of the transmission nesr the place the drive shaft is connected to the transmission. If the automatic transmission shifts normally and the check engine lightisn't on the senser is likly to be good.
