If it is a fault of the speedometer it will have to be either replaced or repaired at a shop that repairs them.If it is because of a different size tires then what came on from factory the computer will have to be reprogrammed.

How do i connect a wrangler speedometer to a turbo 350 transmission

Your factory tach won't be accurate because a 350 is an 8 cylinder engine. I put a 350 into a Vega, and my speedo was slightly off because of the differences between the ratios as well. I recommend looking for an aftermarket adapter, or a kit if you can't get the cable to connect into the tranny.

The speedometer has stopped working on my 1995 Jeep Wrangler. I have been told to replace the speed sensor. Is this a solution and if so, where is this sensor located?

Do not know all the specifics like what engine ect... Most speed sensors are located by transmission valve body area.

Speedometer not working on my 1995 wrangler. I changed the speed sensor, did not solve the problem.

On my 95 jeep wrangler, the vehicle speed sensor is on the end of the transfer case. I replaced mine and it still didn\'t work. So I put new butt connectors on the wires and that was why my speedometer wasn\'t working ... so you need to be careful when crimping the wires without crimping the bells at the ends of the connectors.

My speedometer and odometer quit working. I replaced the speed sensor and the speedo gear looks good. Whats next?

if I remember correctly, the speed sensor plugs into the trans and there were some concerns with the gear in the trans

simple test, with the engine running, have someone watch your speedometer while you hold the sensor in your hand, plugged in and spin the gear. If the speedometer works then suspect the trans gear

Speedometer goes to 0 while driving and the air

on rare ocasions the speedometer gauge cluster goes bad, but usually its the speed sensor. either the sensor it self or the connection either on the speed sensor or at the ecu. sometimes oil gets in and interupts in the electical connections. also make sure everything is fine in the fuse area.

Speedometer stopped working

most likely a broken cable if you slip under the jeep and find where the cable screws into the transmission you can unscrew it and spin it with your finger the speedo should move up if not the cable is broken, replacement can be had at your local dealer
