How do I fix my odometer?


If it is a mechanical speedometer then the drive cable is obviously still good. It is likely in the speedometer head itself, the counter mechanism is jammed up.

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.

Speedometer just quite working


Your speedometer-cable is broken.
You could replace it by disconnecting it from the transaxle, and also from the back of the speedometer itself. (disconnect the battery before you do this).
You will need to remove the instrument cluster to be able to get to the speedometer-cable at the back the speedometer.

Stuck speedometer on 92 jeep cherokee


Check all harness connections and clean them with contact cleaner. Corrosion on connector contacts is not as obvious as the crud that grows on battery terminals usually only appearing as dark residue only. The sender on the transmission or transfer case is basically a small generator that makes voltage. essentially your speedometer is a volt meter with a different face on it. either it has failed or there is a connection breakdown somewhere.

1994 honda accord speedometer finally stopped working


Remove the cluster and send to a cluster specialist. if he finds nothing wrong, you should not be charged for this(ask first). If the cluster is fine, check the cables and/or the sensors that run into the tranny.

If it is the ckluster, the specialist can fix and reinstall.

Speedometer/odometer not working 2000 kia sportage


Your Vehicle velocity sensor has gone bad or the wire harness has gone bad. Check the wire harness first and if that is good, then replace the sensor. You can find the sensor on the transmission out put shaft on the drivers side. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

Speedometer won't work on 1995 mustang


Modern cars no longer use a mechanical cable and speedometer. They have an electronic sensor called the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) which is mounted to the transmission where the old speedometer cable used to go. If the engine was replaced, perhaps the mechanic forgot to plug the wiring harness back into the VSS? Or perhaps he damaged the wiring or the sensor during the engine overhaul. (The transmission has to be removed to remove the engine from the car.)
