My 2000 Volvo c70 turbo has a rebuilt trans, engine. Had the car for almost three weeks and now the speedometer shuts off, my odometer reads ---- and red blinking arrow (winter/wet) won't turn off....


You do realize no one ever has to go to a dealer,ever,
even with a new car,you own it,& as you said the dealers
are expensive
What about the couple hundred thousand repair shops that
do the same as a dealer?

Hey Todd I have a 2005 5.7 dodge magnum and it won't change gears as i speed up while driving also speedometer stopped working


EASY ONE.... Your VSS (Vehicle SPEED SENSOR) stopped working and it is this Sensor that gives the PCM/ECM the information to change gears. Once you change your VSS, and get it working, the Transmission will start working again...

I am Assuming that the Transmission stopped working at the same time the Speedometer did? Is that right?

If it is, then this is a easy fix. 1 bolt and one Wire Connector and DONE....

1999 Alero replaced the blower motor and now the speedometer is stuck at over 140. How do you fix a stuck speedometer


Any time you do any electrical work on a modern computerized car, you must remove the negative cable from the battery prior to work beginning. You will have to reset your driver memories and radio presets afterwards. You have to reset your computer to reset your speedometer. On most 90's Olds, turn on the key but not to 'start', leave in 'Park', then depress the gas pedal rapidly all the way to the floor three times, then turn key off. Then start vehicle. Some models are different, though; you may have to call the 800 no. in the owner's manual and let GM walk you through it.

Odometer and speedometer don't work sometimes


speed sensor runs all three gages. Sounds like trans might have lose or missing bolts. Get it checked out.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX sedan and the speedometer just stopped working. My mechanic just put in a transmission that he bought from a junk yard. How do i fix this problem?


I have a 99 accord and my speedometer and odometer did not work. The problem was the VSS vehicle speed sensor. The VSS is located on the transmission. Once I replaced it everything worked fine.
