Not sure how mechanicaly minded you are but you can do an easy check with the minimum of work.Assuming your speedo is run by a cable and not a transducer.Undo cable at gear box end and try to spin the plastic gear by hand should be free of binding or any other restriction.if you have a dual speed drill attach to plastic gear turn it on and see what the speedo is doing Leave running long enough to determine wether the problem is outside the gear box and not the expensive option.You can remove the plastic gear and completely remove the inner core to check its condition.If the core is at fault you can take the core out of the replacement cable and slide it back up the origional cable.Make sure you twist the core when putting back in as the ends of the core are square.This saves you the trouble of pulling the dash apart.

Well I would verify the trany speed gear is "ate up" first, theres only one 10mm bolt that holds it in place, sure the area around the speedo cable is very CLEAN before removing it any dirt in there would make things bad to say the least. If you pull the cable out the gear is attached to the cable if it looks good then put it back together and remove your cluster (speedo and other gauges inside) I suggest you pick up a repair manual at a big auto store on MK1-MK2 vdubs (82-92) to explain how to remove speedo cable from back of cluster its kinda of tricky getting your fingers back there and pressing it together to get it to release. Once out drive the car and see if that cable is turning from the inside if it is then its your speedo gauge that is faulty. Grab a cluster from a scrap yard, if that cable is NOT turning then the gearing inside the trany is messed up which would mean taking the trany apart to repair it. If that was the case you would be cheaper to replace the whole trany with a used one. Good luck

SOURCE: Dashboard Instrument cluster does not work.

there are 2 large terminal plugs with the wiring for all the instruments that are plugged into the back of that panel. make sure they are snug and in place. You reach in and under but it may easier to "simply" remove the cluster. 4 screws hold it in place accessible form underneath and with a long phillips screwdriver and lighting.

We have a jaguar xj6 sports 12 years old,


Possibile ignition control module problem Check for spark when problem occurs No spark.. Follow wires from distributor to icm box. Open box and you will find a gerneral motors ignition module. Remove module and have tested at local parts store. Replace if bad. Jaguar wants over $300.00 for IGNITION AMPLIFIER UNIT. You should get gm module for under 50 bucks.

Speedometer stopped working


I would say check the speedometer cable, dont think year has a speed sensor. Your local auto parts store should have this part in stock at a not so expensive price.
