You almost certainly have a bad speedo cable. You could have a broken speedometer, but that is like seeing hoofprints and assuming a zebra is near. Speedo cables die all the time, and your car has a mechanical speedometer which uses a cable - like a brake or shifter cable on a bicycle, but the inner part rotates instead of moves back and forth.

Repair kits cost only a few bucks, but may or may not fix the problem.

New speedo cables should be available at your favorite local auto parts store. If not, you can remove it (or have someone remove it) and take it to a speedometer repair shop - most bigger cities have at least one.

Speedometer won't work at all.


If the speedometer and odometer are both dead, the problem is usually the speed sensor in the transmission.
If only the speedometer is dead, the speedometer and cluster may have to be repaired or replaced.

Speedometer & tachometer barely moving on my 1992 toyota camry 4cyl


There are usually two to three transmission sensors on most vehicles
sounds like it may have gotten damaged possibly hitting something in the road. You could take it to Autozone they may be able to help you locate the bad sensor. Or call them.

The speedometer is not reading at al and at the same time it won't upshift out of low gear


two problems you may have.one is the speedometer sensor may not be working thus the transmission won`t know what gear its suppose to be in.the other is the transmission may have gone into back up mode as the tcm may have detected a transmission problem.have the tcm and the pcm checked for codes to help find the problem.
