Speedometer/Odometer not working on my 97 Toyota Tercel

I have a 1997 Toyota Tercel, Automatic, 2-doors, 125K miles on it. The speedometer and odometer suddenly stopped working. I thought it was the cable at first but a buddy mechanic checked it out and he said that it shouldn't be the speedometer cable because it is attached and tight and not damaged. Whatelse could it be? HELP! Thanks

It could also be the small gear that is attached to the gearbox, since it is sacrificial it usually wears out instead of the main gears thus losing the speedo and odometer.

Speedometer and odometer work off of the same input. The speedometer is defective.

Speedometer not reading right speed in Toyota Tercel.


Have you changed tires/wheels to a different size than was originally specified for this car? That will throw the calibration of your speedometer off. Sometimes the onboard computer can be adjusted to fix this, but you need garage professional programming equipment to do something like this if it is possible to do at all. Otherwise, if your speedometer is off and you haven't changed anything, it may need to be replaced, or the sensor on your drivewheels. Check with a mechanic.

Odometer not working on 1997 suburban


Hello BDG, The answer is no. If the VSS fails on your 97 Chevy, you will lose both speedometer and odometer functions. If your speedo is still working and your odometer is not, you have a broke odometer. This is a common failure with a lot of the older vehicles that were fitted with the mechanical odometer registers. Feel free to contact Kincer's Service for a repair salution.
