doubt it is a fuse,could be,but i would check the speed sensor under the vehicle at the transmission,it will be a plug in with 2 or 3 wires going in to it,it will be on the side of the trans.towardthe rear of it.

You probably have a broken speedometer cable. Was the needle wagging back and forth and making strange noises periodically before it quit working?

SOURCE: 1995 honda accord speedometer and odometer not working

Sounds like either your speedometer cable, your nylon gear on the side of the tranny where the cable ties in, or the odometer itself is shot. One of those three will set you straight. If you are able, remove the cluster, take the cable off the back, and pull it out of the sheath. You will see if its broken or not from there. If not, slide it back into the sheath, then you have to find out where the sheath meets the tranny, and pull it off of there. Then, you can get someone else to watch the speedo as you turn the cable from the bottom. If it works, great, if not, then its your cluster/odometer/speedo. If it does work, the small gear in the transmission is shot.

Sounds that the magnetic pickup on the vehicle speed sensor has stopped working. Dirt or grease usually. That will cause an erratic reading. Also check wiring to sensor. Poor connection is rare but possible. Good luck and have a good day.

it should be the speedometer sensor connected to the tranny. it is easy to get at. and it should cost less then 40.00 dollars.when you drive the explorer. wind wiggles the wires around under the truck making it work sometimes.

My speedometer wont work but everything elsle is fine


If your car isn't moving, the speedometer wont work. Make sure you are moving.

Seriously, a little more info would be nice.....but to start with, the speedometer cable is connected to the back of the speedometer and to the transmission. Have you removed the ends to see if there is any damage? You should be able to spin the cable end on the transmission and get the speedometer to register a speed.

My speedometer quit but the odometer still works (1998 F150) can you solve this


Usually it's the opposite. The speedometer works and the odomater and trip meter go inop. Most likely the speedometer assembly is bad. If the odometer is working you have a signal from the gray and black wire .
