Question about 1992 Chrysler New Yorker

1 Answer

Odometer does not work, but speedometer does work

Hello Mr. Mechanic Extraordinaire,

The trip and main odometer of my 1992 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Advenue recently stopped working. The speedometer is working. I've read online that it is most likely either the 20 or 16 teeth gears in the odometer itself. My question is: how do I physically get to the odometer to make the repair. Any assistance would be appreciated (diagrams, websites, instructions, etc.)

Thank you,

I actually have this exact problem with my 92, to get the cluster set out is a pain in the ***, but i will try to explain..
first, there are 4-5 screws at the top of the fake wood trim above the guage set, remove them, then remove the top panel, then you'll find another 4-5 screws (top and bot sides) holding the lower piece on, remove them.
once you have the cluser set exposed, remove the 5-6 screws holding it in place, you'll be able to pull the set out, make sure to disconnect all the wires going to the cluseter set, once you have it out, you will need to disaemble it.
if its a needle guage set (like mine) you'll find that each instrument is a "pod" which can be removed, there are 3 - 4 torx screws holding them inplace, simply remove the screws, then pull (fairly hard) and the speedometer should pop out..

93 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenue I need to know where the speedometer cable hooks into the transmission

I'm fairly sure a 1993 would use a speed sensor instead of a cable.
Either way, they plug into the side of the transmission.

Odometer works but speedometer does not. 1991 chrysler fifth avenue. can speedometer reset w/o changing original odometer reading? how to.

Y can't reset the speedometer. Your problem is the electric motor that turns the speedometer needle. I believe yours just pops in and out. But some are soldered. You can get both kinds on line.

Why does the speedometer work but not the odometer

that would be a mechanical failure of the speedometer head. the same signal that causes speedometer to move also should make the odometer work. and if its not doing that, you need a new speedometer assembly. good-day !!

Does the 1992 chrysler new yorker have a transmission sensor?

What type of sensor do you mean? I don't think it has sensors like a more modern transmission as far as the VSS, for instance, because it has a speedometer cable in that place and bands.

I think the 1992 Chrysler New Yorker had an older style transmission that didn't use a computer sensor as far as I read, anyway.

Does that answer the question?

Chances are this is to advanced for you, the problem is probably the cable. A new cable has to be run from the rear of the speedometer to the transmission
