Replace the speed sensor on the passenger axle next to the transmission. It is held in place with a ten millimeter bolt.re-installed it and works perfect again. This very same thing was happening to my 92 dodge caravan two days ago.went down bought a new sensor, took the gear off the old one and popped it on the new sensor, re-installed it, works perfect again. Let me know if this does the trick. Good Luck. Ps make sure to get the same two or three prong sensor. Was about a $27 fix.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Speedometer needle problem


Sounds like the pin that the speedometer needle rests on at "0" got broken off. If you think you can take everything apart and fiddle some sort of improvisory repair for that pin, then jump in there and have at it. Note that needle calibration may be damaged and it will never read right again, regardless. Otherwise- new speedometer.

Speedometer


could be a worn speedometer cable that may be loose or stripped, causing it to catch only ever so often, or slip occasionally, making the needle jump, or bounce, also check the ground for a good conection, a loose ground can cause the same problem

Speedometer is sticking and then jumping up every couple of mph


The speedometer in this truck is electronic, the needle is moved by a tiny electric motor called the speedometer needle stepper motor, a stepper motor is a DC motor than can hold one position rather than just rotate when power is applied to it. You will need to remove the instrument cluster from the truck and send it in to a Ford electronics repair center that repairs speedometers.

THE SPEEDOMETER STOPS WORKING WHEN IT GETS HOT ON MY 2004 TRAIL BLAZER THANKS.


If everything else works ok, the vehicle drives normally, and all the other gauges are working then you may have a bad speedometer servo motor. This servo is what actually moves the speedometer needle to match the speed you are driving at. The cluster would need to come out and be repaired to fix this problem if this is the case.

Speedometer is jumping around


The speedometer cable needs lubricating. It can be removed from the bottom where it connects to transmission, coated with graphite and reinstalled.

1998 Honda Civic speedometer nervous on the red light


?? Does it move on the road ? You could have a worn out CV joint that allows the transmission to free-wheel. If that is the case, replace immediatly, or the transmission differential will fail.
