Speedometer lights on the dashboard


I'd think maybe a failing rheostat in the instrument panel.

several things could cause this, a connector on back of panel came loose, shorted wire rubbed through insulation. start with looking at gauge cluster panel.

How can i fix the speedometer on my jeep?


Hello,

The Speedometer cable runs from the gear oil part of the engine to the dashboard. The dashboard needs to be disassemble and the speedometer cable will enter into the back of the speedometer.

Good luck.

My speedometer stops working sometimes


Sounds like a loose fitting behind the dashboard cluster. Stop knocking on it and remove the dash and take a look before you really case some jostling damage in other instruments.

Speedometer in my 1995 miata stopped working while i was driving down the road? any suggestions?


Hi,
The reason for the speedometer not working should be the cable connecting the dashboard and the transmission.This could be caused by a problem on the speedometer cable. This cable is connected at the back of your dashboard to the transmission. Check out if the cable broke or has disconnected from the back of the dashboard. Thank you for contacting www.Fixya.com

Lights in the dashboard


Check operation & wiring at light control rheostat (left side of dash) & If everything else with electrical is OK, sounds like the bulbs may have simply blown. You will have to pull out instrument cluster to get at the bulbs.
