Change the speed sensor if you have the electronic speedometer. If you have a cable driven speedometer, buy a new cable, and replace.

Speedometer its not working


check to make sure the speedometer cable is still hooked into the transmission, if it is try taking it out and turning the cable by hand have someone watch the speedometer on the dash to see if it moves, if it doesnt move then the cable needs to be replaced

My speedometer quit working and i replaced it and it still doesnt work \


check the connection that is on the transmission if you have a real cable then check the end to make sure the cable connections are not broke. look at the speedometer then spin the cable with your fingers the speedometer should bounce if not then cable is broke also check the ends usuall the end by the trans gets stripped out. a speed sensor will also make the meter not work if you have that kind of vehical.

1990 stanza speedometer doesnt work


if its digital its either the gauge cluster or the sender on the transmission. however its most likely not digital, youll see where the cable goes into the back of the transmission, theres a gear there that runs it, alot of the time they are plastic and get worn out over time. or it could be the dash is having an issue. hope this helps

Speedometer doesnt work


Common problem with these instrument clusters. If it is a cable operated speedometer, the cable end may be rounding off on one end. Possible ground wire fault with dash board unit.

Speedometer Cable REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Reach behind the speedometer and depress the retaining clip. Pull the cable from the casing. If the cable is broken, raise the car and disconnect the cable at the transmission. Lubricate only the bottom 3⁄4 of the cable core with speedometer cable lubricant. Reconnect all parts.

1995 honda accord speedometer and odometer not working


Sounds like either your speedometer cable, your nylon gear on the side of the tranny where the cable ties in, or the odometer itself is shot. One of those three will set you straight. If you are able, remove the cluster, take the cable off the back, and pull it out of the sheath. You will see if its broken or not from there. If not, slide it back into the sheath, then you have to find out where the sheath meets the tranny, and pull it off of there. Then, you can get someone else to watch the speedo as you turn the cable from the bottom. If it works, great, if not, then its your cluster/odometer/speedo. If it does work, the small gear in the transmission is shot.
