The speedo cable could be lose at the transmission or the lips to hold it in place along it's run are lose so the cable moves about causing the inner cable to bind.

Most likely it is dirty on the inside so the able is sticking. It can be removed easily by unscrewing it from the transmission on one end and unhooking it form the back of the instrument cluster on the other.

Once removed, use carb cleaner or brake cleaner to spray down the speedo cable to clean it out. The inner cable will not come out as it has press on fittings on both ends. Rotate the inner cable with your fingers as you spray. Hold the cable up so the cleaner drains down the inside and out the bottom. Do this for the whole can.

Let sit for about 15 to 30 minutes so all the cleaner evaporates. It will not leave behinds any residue.

Using the same technique, spray silicon lubricant down inside the inner tube. You can't use graphite powder or lithium as it wont work it's way down the whole length.

Reinstall and that should fix the speedo needle from jumping. Also

1992 toyota 4x4 pickup odometer working but speedometer not working


They both work off of the same cable, so I would say that you have a problem in the speedometer head itself and will need replacing or sent in for repair.

If you have someone check the engine computer for trouble codes, you'll probably find a code for the speed sensor in the transmission.

SPEEDOMETER QUIT


You may need another speedometer. The speed sensor sends a signal to both the speedo and the odometer. So if the sensor fails, both meters would stop working.
The speedo gets power from the same circuit as the warning lights.

1992 22re standard transmission toyota pickup truck speedometer, odometer and milage meter stopped working How do I fix it.


It sounds like the cluster is gone bad if everything is not working. Usually, if just the speedometer isn't working then it's the speed sensor on the transmission that has gone bad. But I think you have a cluster that has just died. Check on EBAY for a used cluster and ask them to roll the mileage to what is on your vehicle now.

My speedometer is not working along with my odometer.


If your speedometer is not electronic, unfasten the speedometer cable from the back of the dashboard instrument assy. Replace the odometer & speedometer unit with another one. Reconect the speedometer cable. This should do the trick.
