Replacing speedometer sending unit

I need help replacing speedometer sending unit. I can't find it on the transmission. The speedometer is erratic, going up to 100 + mph at times. The Honda dealer wants $150 for a speed sensor transmitter, but I've seen websites with $40 prices. Why the difference in price?

These are no longer read by cable but rather fly by wire consult your dealer for part location and replacement.... after market parts are always much cheaper then OEM however they dont always work... take the car to an Auto Zone Parts Store and ask them to locate the sensor for you they have a computer information bank they access for free....they can also scan your vehicle to see if any codes exist and all this is done as a customer service, perhaps they can give you an idea of what the part costs as well?

How to fix a speedometer cable


Well you know it does not have a speedo cable since you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission.
My guess would be a problem with the speedo or cluster.

Nissan Maxima speedometer reads 20 mph but actual speed is 40-50 mph, is my transmission going bad?


NO, IT'S NOT THE TRANSMISSION! SOUNDS LIKE A SPEEDOMETER PROBLEM! THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THREE THINGS! EITHER THE SPEEDOMETER, THE CABLE, OR THE SPEED SENSOR! THE SPEED SENSOR WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU A P0500 CODE ON AN OBD-II CODE READER! THE SPEED SENSOR IS ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION! SOME HAVE A SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOOKED TO THEM, AND SOME JUST HAVE A 2 WIRE PLUG THAT HOOKS TO IT!

Boss has 2005 Yukon, says speedometer shows random numbers (ie, 40 mph while stopped or 40 mph when doing 60. Intermittent problem sometimes fine.) Any helpful hints appreciated.


The speedo in electronic and can have various circuit board problems. I've had to cars with erratic speedos and in both cases the dealer said replace them and big buck bills. I found a shop that repairs them and charges $100 buck and free shipping back. About a 4 day turnaround.

I'm having a problem with my 98 Chevy Express G1500


if you have replaced ther speedometer sending unit then your dash cluster is the problem chances are that the sending unit was only part of the problem. the cluster is static sensitive so have a mechanic replace it for you, if your not familiar with newer dash clusters, static electricity can short not part but the whole dash unit which is quite costly, so be sure to have a shop replace it, if your not up to the task

Although you didn't mention it, the speedometer probably bounces also. Replacing the speed sensor on the side of the transmission should solve both your problems. Good luck

Unscrew the speedometer cable from the back of the gauge and from the transmission, take the cable out of the sheath, clean it off with carb or brake cleaner, oil it and put it back in. If that doesn't do it, replace cable assembly. If that doesn't do it, pull the speedometer gear out of the transmission and check for wear. Replace if needed.

Speedometer runs erratic and transmissions drops to second gear.


The ECM or TCM may be the culprit, its also possible that a ground wire is no longer grounded or partially grounded giving you the erratic speedometer.
