Question about 1988 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

After replacing the heater core and reinstalling the dash the speedometer is not functioning. I tried to get the speedo cable seated as far into its sheath but I obviously must have done it wrong. Do I need to yank the dash apart again or is there access to the cable from under the hood?

You wont access the connecting point from under the hood. The firewall is in the way. Maybe try from under the dash? Be sure youre going to pick up some cuts doing it this way. Try at the gearbox first. Disconnect the cable from the gearbox and turn the inner a couple times. If youre lucky the only part that didnt seat properly is the inner but more than likely the cable is not seated properly at the back of the speedo.

How to replace a heater core in a 1988 crown victora/ltd

Replacing the heater core on your vehicle is a job in itself and if one is not mechanically inclined or knowledgable in this area I highly do not recommend attempting taking on such a task.I have done many of these and I will tell you it involves removing the whole dash including lossening the steering wheel and laying it on the seat your dash will also be laying on the seat but if you get this far behind the dash there is a plenum assembly your heater core is inside this case depending on how yours is set up you may or may not need to disconnect th A/C lines and you may or may not need to remove the whole plenum assembly to replace the heater core. If you do plan on attempting to take on this task I recommend you buy a repaire manual for your vehicle and follow the instructions.

Hayne's Manual for 1986 Taurus lead me wrong! After removing everything I can, I still cannot "reach up behind instrument panel" and even come close to touching the speedometer cable connection....

if its a manual cable you just unscrew from transmissionwill be at your gearbox and remove all cable ties holdinding outer cable might give ya enough slack to remove from dash end

Our 2005 dash lights come on and off intermitently, usually stay on during the day, this included instrument panel, radio, heater and seat heater lights in the door. The speedometer is also shot.

Hi, the interior lamps work in conjunction with the daytime running lamps. Depending on available outdoor light, these lights may change, as the sensor sees fit. This is a normal condition. As far as the speedo, there is a very good chance the guage is bad, resulting in a new cluster. This is something the dealer can easily diagnose, and dealer must replace the cluster, as it has to be programmed. Good luck...Coop

How to install speedometer cable

The vehicle will have to be jacked in the air safely to remove the cable from the trans.Some fluid will come out too,so have a catch basin in place.You have to climb onto the floor board,and lay on your back looking up into the underside of the dash.Locate the speedo cable and follow it up to the speedo head with your hand.When you reach the area where the cable dead ends into the speedo head,feel around for a locking clip or tab.You will either squeeze or lift the tab,and this will release the old cable from the speedo head.Pull the cable through the firewall grommet,and remove the cable.Reverse to reinstall.There may be a plastic gear on the trans end of the cable that has to be removed and reinstalled on the new cable.The gear is removed by removing the metal retainer clip shaped like a horseshoe.Good luck.
