Can't, you will have to replace the entire instrument cluster. same problem with mine. try a wrecker, you might be able to pick one up cheap. bad part apart taking the instrument cluster apart is that most of the dash get disassembled as well.

good luck hope this helps

2001 Ford Windstar Speedometer stopped working after I installed Hub Bearings

The sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transmission and should not be affected by the work that you did. Are the ABS sensors ok?

Speedometer stoped working, just replaced the censer & did a trans. service

There is also a cam shaft speed sensor change it and then see. Most other devices require the input of the pulses from this sensor in order to work. Lets face it if the engine (acording to the cam speed sensor) is not running why alow the speedometer to register

Speedometer not working

If your speedometer is not working your cable is probably broke. You can replace it yourself if you have minimal repair skills.

My 1995 Honda Civic ESI (Manual Transmission) speedometer doesn't work. I replaced the sensor unit to no avail. I checked all fuses and they are all okay. I also checked the voltages on the speedometer...

i see two possibilities. well the first one, when you changed the speedometer, did you just change a small part, or was a large part with a gear at the bottom. if you only changed a smal part, and not the gear under neath it, then it is a possibility that the gear that turns the speedometer is worn. the other possibility is the speedometer head which is located on the instrument cluster, but changing this does take several hours and theres no actual way of testing it without taking it out. if you know how to change the vss(the part that goes on top) then look for maybe one or two more bolts, remove, and try to wiggle the gear out. im sorry, its not the best description, but i am trying my best. if the gear is pointy on all of the ends, then it is good, and you will have to look into the speedometer head. if the ends are flat, replace that, and problem should be solved. hope this helps, goodluck.

My speedodemeter is off by 8 miles an hour could that be fix just by changeing out my transmission because the transmission doesn't shift right it takes a min.

Assuming you replace it with the same transmission it should be fine. If you've changed your tires to a larger or smaller size it can also effect your speedometer. If this is the case it can usually be corrected by replacing the speedometer cable with one for that particular combination. If your transmission isn't shifting right you should check the fluid level. Also check for any transmission leaks because those can effect the shifting as well.
