If the cable is working and hooked up the only thing left is the speedometer head itself is bad.

Speedometer and odometer don't work


I don't know what type of vehicle you have but usually when both the odometer and speedometer don't work, you need a new speedometer cable. My husband replaced the one on his 97 Tracker and it worked for 2 weeks and quit again. He just drives with the flow of traffic and in order to pass inspection he has to get a DMV Waiver every single year. He will never be able to sell it because he has no idea what the actual mileage on it is. He just drives it in bad weather and stuff since it has 4WD. I don't think the speedometer cable is very expensive. Good luck.

What would cause mileage reader not to work but speedometer does on my 1997 volvo ?


Hi Bob, I'm glad to help!

Bob that would depend on whether you have the "Electronic Cluster" or the Mechanical Cluster. If you have the Electrical Cluster then its a problem with circuit board inside the cluster. There are a row of 20 pins that the solder joints become weak and must be soldered to work properly. If its mechanical I'm not sure. On some older cars there use to be a cable that the gears went bad, but I'm not sure if your Volvo has a cable driven cluster. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Bob.

Check the computer controlled idle valve or motor. And clean it and the air passages it controls with a sensor safe cleaner. Throttle body cleaner or intake cleaner made by CRC (at Napa) works good. Check for a dirty air filter.

The speedometer is not working inside the car


Hi, you probably have a broken cable or a bad speedometer..

Check the cable that runs from the gearbox to the dash, (the connection IN the dash looks like a green receptical for a light bulb, its HARD to miss) make sure that it turns properly and that, when in its correct position, turns the small brass coloured part inside the speedo mechanism (the end of the cable should be a square-ish prong that is should insert into a hole in the extreme rear of the speedometer mechanism).
If the unit doesnt work (if the cable is fine and the mechanism bares no apparent defects then you have to replace the speedometer)

Speedometer, odometer frozen


there is a steel braided cable located at the back of your speedo panel that connects it to the tranny, this cable rotates from the point it connects to the tranny and transmits it to your panel. this cable may have snapped. pull out the panel, take out the cable and replace.

My 93 jeep wrangler speedometer stopped working on day it was rainin out and hasnt worked since any idea why and how to fix


Check the connection to the speed sensor gear. It will be a cable plugged into the output shaft on the top of the transfer case (behind the transmission). It is possible that it became disconnected or has a broken wire.

1996 ford ranger odometer / trip stopped working


Since your speedometers work, the problem is in the gearing to the trip and mileage odometers. Simple problem, major pain to fix but, remove instrument cluster - you'll have to remove speedo cable to get it out. Use the old Mark I eyeball to check for broken parts. Might even have to drop steering column - disconnect air bag first!

YOUR SPEDOMETER WORK WITH A SIGNAL FROM THE GEARBOX. I AM SURE THE AUTO PILOT DOESN'T WORK TOO. IT CAN BE LOOSE, CABLE BROKE OR THE INTERNAL COMPONENT FROM THE GEARBOX IS DAMAGED
